A reverse osmosis system can treat for a variety of contaminants including:
Aluminum, Arsenic, Asbestos, Atrazine, Benzene, Chlorides, Chlorine, Copper,
Cryptosporidium, Cyanide, Fluoride, Giardia, Lead, Mercury, Nitrates, Radium, Radon,
Silver, Sodium, Sulfide, Trichloroethylene, and Total Trihalomethanes.
Q. Beyond reducing health-related contaminants what are some other benefits
of installing a reverse osmosis water system?
There are many benefits to installing a reverse osmosis system beyond greatly reduced
concentrations of contaminants. Cleaner, sparkling drinking water is probably the most
noticeable. Because there is little to alter the RO-treated water's natural state, the flavor
of food can come though without any "chemical" taste. Brewed items such as coffee,

Q. How do I properly maintain my reverse osmosis system?
The filters of your RO system should be changed periodically. In general, both the pre-
and post-filters should be replaced about every six months, or at least annually;
however, the maintenance schedules may vary due to local water conditions, the quality
of water being filtered, and the manufacturer's recommendations. The reverse osmosis
membrane normally lasts between 3 to 5 years. WQA suggests you closely follow the
maintenance schedule provided by your water treatment specialist of the manufacturer to
ensure that the system is in proper working order.
