Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Systems

Why Reverse Osmosis?

Our water supply is constantly being polluted in many different ways. Petrochemical spills and leaks from decades ago seep into our underground water supply. Rain and melting snow carry pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and fertilizers into our streams, rivers, lakes and wells. Thousands of new chemicals and compounds have been invented in the past few years, while effective methods for safely disposing of them after use have not kept pace. Reverse osmosis takes out what the world puts in your water.

Some of the highest quality bottled water is produced by reverse osmosis (R.O.) filtration, which typically reduces impurities by 95% or more. Fortunately, you can get this same bottled water quality right from your tap, by having an EcoWater R.O. filtration system installed in your home, cottage or business. Drinking water produced by an R.O. filtration system is far more economical than even the cheapest bottled water. Why pay $0.80 to $2.00 per gallon (or more!) to drink water prepared and bottled by someone else? This cost ineffective price reflects the costs of bottling, storage, trucking, fuel expenses, wages, insurances, etc. If you have a point-of-use water system, you eliminate all of these middleman costs and enjoy fresh purified water for pennies per gallon.

EcoWater reverse osmosis systems utilize a special membrane that separates minerals and impurities from your water, effectively removing substances such as lead, mercury, chlorine, sediment, calcium and nitrates, which are then flushed to the drain.
