Fountain of Youth Bottled Water uses the process of reverse osmosis to ensure the purest drinking water experience. We thought it would be worthwhile to share the reasons we choose to use this process, starting with the what, how and why!
What is reverse osmosis water?
Reverse osmosis is a water purification technology that uses a semipermeable membrane to remove ions, molecules, and larger particles from drinking water. In the common household tap water, there are many impurities contained that not suitable for consumption and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Reverse osmosis has efficiently been able to remove these impurities with high success rates with percentages averaging from 85-98%. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of reverse osmosis water purification processes.
Healthy and effective purification process
Reverse osmosis flushes pollutants away instead of collecting them. Undesirable contaminants like toxic metal salts, lead, nickel, mercury, copper, selenium and sulphate may be present or it may become contaminated by chemicals or microbes within pipes. There is also evident, excellent rejection of microorganisms and organic compounds. Bacteria, viruses, protozoa, asbestos and many more are removed through this process, allowing the cleanest drinking water for you and your family.
Improves taste, odour, and appearance
Tap water contains chemicals such as pesticides, hormones, nitrate, arsenic, fluoride, chlorine, detergents, and pharmaceuticals which can effect the taste and appearance of your drinking water. Reverse osmosis removes taste and odor producing chemicals. This ultimately improves food taste in cooking and baking. Ice cubes never looked so crystal clear.
Removes water softener
Some minerals in our tap and piping make water “hard”, such as calcium and magnesium. Both minerals would be considered as containments. In order to attempt to make water “softer”, water softener techniques are implemented. Water softener can expose your family to other problems which you may not be aware of. With the use of water softeners, there is a higher chance of more lead content than normal, as well as increasing sodium intake. Hot or warm water from the tap should never be used for cooking, shortcuts, drinking water, beverages, or infant formula as it could be higher in heavy metals, specially lead. With reverse osmosis, lead is removed from drinking water at 95-98%.
Filtration process requires no energy
Reverse osmosis is fantastic for planet Earth’s preservation of natural resources. The filtration process does not consume energy.
This process does not use or create additional chemicals which makes it a great environmentally friendly alternative to other water purification methods. A hygienic working environment and reduces operator’s exposure to hazards are ensured with reverse osmosis water purification systems.
