Unprocessed outdoor waters are not drinkable, microorganism in these water has a risk to cause acute illnesses. However, many chronic diseases are caused by long-term toxic effects of chemicals in many tap water resources. Arsenic, fluoride, lead, nitrite, nitrate, manganese, are just some of the naturally occurring ionic substances of concern. Mercury, detergent, chloride, and wastewater from human activities will also contaminant drinking water resources too. The organic chemicals mainly resulting from manufacturing, agricultural, mining, and other human activities are often overlooked as sources of long-term illnesses and premature deaths. Human beings require more clean water as the global population grows and the accelerated process of industrialization.
RO technology is recognized by millions of families for its ability to reduce the concentrations of all classes of contaminants and in drinking waters: suspended solids, salts, organics, and microorganisms. The introduction of RO systems in household water purifiers and commercial pure water machines has given the consumer a low-cost means of getting healthy water.
Water quality around the globe continues to deteriorate due to increased stresses placed on natural water sources. Contaminants that have just recently been identified add to the problems we already face and fortunately, water purification devices, especially reverse-osmosis drinking-water appliances are relied upon to provide safe, high-quality life support water.
Many consumers rely on bottled water as their only source of drinking water. This is based on the apparent unwelcome smell taste in the municipal tap water. RO water is a sort of pure water and has the same taste as the bottled water. The benefits of RO water are low cost, fresh taste, and no plastic pollution. Therefore in the past years, many bottled water drinkers have changed their main water resource to RO waters.
