Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration and Clean Water Management We can’t always control the quality of our tap water. Different municipalities enforce different standards of quality and water filtration handle chemicals, minerals, and organic compounds. And that doesn’t even begin to take into account the chemical used to treat water, or the compounds that can leach into water due to corrosion in old pipes that contribute to things like taste. With that in mind, it’s important to consider water cleanliness, and the benefits of reverse osmosis water to address issues like the taste and potability of incoming tap water. Having an advanced water filtration solution, like a reverse osmosis filter, can help protect the health of your family. Before jumping into the reverse osmosis water, however, it is important that consumers understand what to look for.
What Do We Mean When We Say "Clean" Water First, let’s clear the air: this is not a scare piece. Water that comes into your home is, by and large, cleaned and treated before it reaches the tap. We’ve all heard stories like the water issues out of Flint, Michigan, but those are typically exceptions to this rule. It is much more likely that your water simply tastes bad, or you live in an area with poor water distribution or high-frequency boil orders. But it is worthwhile to have a conversation about water cleanliness for health purposes just as much as it is for taste and enjoyment. No one wants metallic tasting water - but people want to get sick from their tap water even less. • First, when thinking about water filters and health, it’s important to have put measures in place to remove trace chemicals and organic compounds (which are molds, fungi, and bacteria due to contamination). It is especially important to have a proper filter for these contaminants if anyone in your family has a sensitive system, autoimmune issues, or allergies that might react poorly to levels of bacteria in water that might be totally fine for anyone else. • Second, consider water filtration systems as emergency measures during boil orders, where someone might accidentally drink contaminated water before knowing about the threat. • Third, and perhaps most importantly, reverse osmosis filters can protect against chemicals that contaminate water when wear on older municipal pipes leach into water supplies. Lead is a common mineral that can find its way into tap water due to old pipes.
Water Filtration and Reverse Osmosis Water An issue with cleaning water, and ensuring that it is 100% clean, is using the right combination of filters to remove all the particulates, bacteria, and chemicals in the water. Imagine an entire ecosystem of microbes, particles, crumbs, and chemicals, all different sizes and shapes. Different things need different filters. A membrane can catch bacteria but leave chemical compounds in the water. Likewise, charcoal filters can pull chemical molecules from the water (like chlorine, and others) that cause bad taste or harmful after effects, but do very little against biological contamination Once you have the right filters in place, an additional problem involves the trace minerals that are actually good for us. Chemical filters in particular don’t discriminate between a chemical or mineral that is harmful (chlorine) and one that is healthy (calcium). So a good, healthy filter is one that not only removes the harmful or unwanted material from the water, but makes sure that the trace minerals like... • ● Calcium● Magnesium● Sodium
Minerals and Reverse Osmosis • Typically, minerals are removed as part of the filtration process. This is great when the chemicals are harmful, or cause the water to taste bad. But the filters can also remove helpful or healthy minerals that our body needs. • That’s not a reason to worry. It is, however, a reason to carefully consider the kind of reverse osmosis filter you use. Modern filters can reintroduce trace minerals into the water, most importantly calcium, magnesium, and sodium. Sodium, in particular, is an issue. Proper hydration and electrolyte balance requires that the body have a proper volume of salt to help water and mineral absorption. • Reintroduction filters help to maintain trace minerals that constitute a healthy source of these necessary components. This also help maintain the pH of the water so that it doesn’t become too acidic or basic, which can have negative effects to our health in different ways.
