Reverse Osmosis Water Filter Systems-validated for PFOS & PFOA removal

For health and wellness, if we were to recommend only one piece of water treatment equipment to our customers, it would be the reverse osmosis driking water system. This system is ultrafiltration for the drinking water, the water you're ingesting, taking into your body, and as is being assimilated into all of your cells; whereas your skin is an effective barrier for keeping out the majority of the contaminants when you shower or bathe. This system will remove virtually all the contaminants in your drinking, cooking, coffee & tea water, which makes this the most important water to filter from a health and wellness standpoint.

Reverse osmosis drinking water systems are the gold standard for drinking water purification. Reverse osmosis is similar to membrane filtration, but with some crucial differences. In normal membrane filtration, the solution is passively passed through a membrane and the larger particles are separated out by the membrane. In reverse osmosis, the solution (in this case your drinking water) is forced through the membrane, the larger particles (contaminates) are filtered out, and purified water is passed to your spout. Our reverse osmosis Units also have an activated carbon filter.

While our POU (Point of Use) systems (installed under the sink/in the basement) are our most popular RO systems, we also install whole house reverse osmosis systems.

Many people know that it is not the best practice to drink unfiltered tap water because of the health risk associated with the consumption of contaminants, which sparks them to invest in a refrigerator with a water filter or a POU carbon filter (think Brita or Pur). Any filter is better than no filter, but how do POU carbon filters compare to a reverse Osmosis System? Certified Water Services made the following chart to outline the differences:

The Many Uses of Reverse Osmosis Water:

  • Drinking Water: According to the The Mayo Clinic's webpage, it is recommended "that an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day. The AI for women is 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day." Water is your body's principal component, and it "flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues."

  • Cooking: tap water has chlorine, several chemical additives, mineral salts, and organic impurities that will interfere with the natural flavors of most anything being cooked in it.

  • Juices and Mixes: The directions say "just add water." Why add all the other impurities that go with it?

  • Coffee and Tea: Coffee and Tea are over 98% water. Chlorine, contaminants, and impurities will interfere with the true taste of the beverage. Your RO will allow the true essence of your brew to come through. RO water will also stop the scaling from building up in your coffee machines, Keurigs, and tea kettles.

  • Ice Cubes: Is your ice cloudy? We'll hook up your RO to your refrigerator. Expect clearer ice, that will not spoil the flavor of beverages as it melts!

  • Baby Formulas: Infants are especially suspectable to MTBE, nitrates, and lead, even in the the smallest amounts.

  • Humidifiers: Reverse Osmosis water is far superior to tap water in humidifiers. All the impurities in water will be left behind in the humidifier causing it to be inefficient, energy wasting, and finally self destruct.

  • Aquariums/Pet Water: Fish and Pets appreciate clean water too!



  • Reverse Osmosis drinking water filters are recommended for all residences in the Bucks, Philadelphia, and Montgomery County region as clean drinking water can't be taken for granted, especially if you have well water (no agencies test the quality of your well water). The Environmental Working Group provides a database of drinking water quality reports from over 47,000 water utility companies and provides consumers with a free national database. Read your town's water quality report to find out what's in your water by clicking here: What's in my tap water?
