The soft water treated by the water softener can be used for all other purposes except drinking. This water cannot be used directly for reference, because the water softener will only reduce the hardness of the water, but will not change the existing TDS level in the water. After using the water softener, you must use the RO system for drinking.
How does the RO system work?
The process of using a reverse osmosis device to remove sediment and dissolved solids is very simple. Reverse osmosis works through a pressure pump, which pushes domestic water through a series of filters; carbon filters, RO membranes and activated carbon post filters can ensure that all impurities are successfully filtered out and provide you with pure and delicious drinking water.
The RO purifier filters or separates 90% of dissolved pollutants through its semi-permeable membrane. Chemically unsafe water can cause serious gastrointestinal problems. Groundwater/tanker water usually contains high levels of calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, manganese, bicarbonate, chloride, sulfate, nitrate and carbonate. This is called TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) in water. According to IS regulations, it is not recommended to consume TDS exceeding 500 ppm.
Reverse osmosis is considered the best purification process, through which you can effectively reduce and remove harmful organic and inorganic pollutants. Does reverse osmosis remove lead? Does reverse osmosis remove salt and minerals? The answer is yes, it is removed together with other pollutants such as arsenic, copper, and radioactive pollutants.
RO water purifier has low production cost, is easy to clean and maintain, and has lower energy consumption compared with other purifiers.
