How a Reverse Osmosis System Works and Why It’s a Must-Have for Your Home

What is a reverse osmosis system and how does it work? As water solution professionals in the business for over 70 years, we’ve heard this question a lot. Luckily, Culligan Water of Greater Kansas City prides itself on not only clean water solutions but educating homeowners and businesses on their benefits. 

If you’re unaware of regular tap water issues and how reverse osmosis systems can help then the cost of installing one of these systems might seem like a burden. But if you’re looking to save money and improve your health, a reverse osmosis system is worth every single penny. How does it work? In this article, we’ll explain how reverse osmosis works and why it’s such a big deal for your home. 

How Does Reverse Osmosis Work?

The process of reverse osmosis removes/reduces nearly all contaminants found in your water. This process, first modernized around 1960, is now used in homes and businesses across the nation through systems big and small. 

Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that uses a semi-permeable membrane to separate water molecules from other substances. Semi-permeable refers to the ability for some substances to pass through while others cannot. For instance, as reverse osmosis deals with water, the membrane allows the water to pass through while stopping impurities and contaminants from passing through. In Culligan Water’s reverse osmosis systems, the impurities and contaminants that are stopped by the semi-permeable membrane are then flushed down the drain and done away with. 

In terms of visible differences alone, a reverse osmosis system can make your water appear clearer by removing suspended solids and lowering dissolved solids, which often become concentrated in ice cubes. 

The Benefits of a Reverse Osmosis System in Your Home

With the financial and health benefits of filtered water, it’s no shock that more homeowners are switching to better water through reverse osmosis systems. Outfitting your kitchen with a reverse osmosis system can not only increase the value of your home but provide a continuous supply of high-quality drinking water right at your kitchen sink. 

Reverse osmosis systems have made amazing strides in efficiency and convenience for homeowners in the past decade. Culligan Water now offers reverse osmosis systems that can be stored under your sink, leaving you with no unsightly machines in view of your kitchen and keeping your counter space clear.
