The Science Behind BIG B's Reverse Osmosis System

Reverse osmosis is a purification process that effectively removes contaminants from unfiltered water, also known as feed water. By exerting pressure and guiding it through a semipermeable membrane, water moves from the side with a higher contaminant concentration to the side with a lower contaminant concentration, resulting in clean drinking water, commonly called permeate. 

The leftover concentrated water, on the other hand, is known as waste or brine. This process relies on a semipermeable membrane with small pores that selectively block contaminants while enabling the passage of water molecules. Osmosis, as a natural phenomenon, causes water to become more concentrated as it moves through the membrane to reach equilibrium on both sides. 

Innovative Reverse Osmosis Systems at Your Fingertips

However, reverse osmosis utilizes the same property of the membrane to prevent contaminants from infiltrating the less concentrated side. For instance, applying pressure leaves the salt behind in a volume of saltwater, allowing only clean water to flow through. This innovative method ensures the delivery of purified water for various applications.

Take a Closer Look: Reverse Osmosis System Explained

The focal point of a reverse osmosis system is the RO membrane. However, this system consists of more than just one type of filtration. In any reverse osmosis water system, you will always find a sediment filter and a carbon filter in addition to the RO membrane. These filters are commonly referred to as prefilters or postfilters, depending on the order in which water passes through them to the membrane. Let's take a closer look at each type of filter:

Sediment Filter

This extraordinary filter effectively reduces particles such as dirt, dust, and rust, ensuring clearer and purer water.

Carbon Filter

By removing volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chlorine, and other contaminants, this filter ensures that your water tastes better and smells fresher.

Semipermeable Membrane

This remarkable membrane, the star of the show, can remove an impressive 98% of total dissolved solids (TDS), providing you with significantly purer and healthier water. A reverse osmosis system guarantees outstanding filtration results with these essential components working together harmoniously.

Don't Get Left Behind in Water Filtration Technology

The journey of water through an RO system begins with prefiltration, which involves passing it through carbon and sediment filters. These filters eliminate sediment and chlorine, preventing potential clogging or damage to the RO membrane. As water advances, it encounters the reverse osmosis membrane, where even minuscule dissolved particles undetectable by an electron microscope get extracted. The filtered water then flows into the storage tank, awaiting consumption. The reverse osmosis system diligently purifies water until the storage tank reaches maximum capacity, automatically ceasing operation. Upon turning on your drinking water faucet, the purified water flows from the storage tank. It undergoes a final polishing through another postfilter before reaching your awaiting glass.

RO Storage Tank: A Must-Have for Your Household

The purpose of an RO storage tank is to store reverse osmosis water, ensuring an ample supply whenever it is required. Reverse osmosis systems have a relatively slow water output rate, generating about two to three ounces of RO water per minute. If you were to turn on your faucet and request a glass of water while relying solely on the actual membrane production rate, you would have to wait at least five minutes for it to fill. However, a storage tank will instantly fill your glass, allowing for a more convenient experience.

Your Tap Water Isn't as Clean as You Think 

A reverse osmosis (RO) system eliminates dissolved solids such as arsenic and fluoride. Additionally, the RO system boasts sediment and carbon filtration, providing comprehensive reduction capabilities. The carbon filters within the RO system remove chlorine and tackle unpleasant tastes and odors. Furthermore, the sediment filter eliminates dirt and debris, resulting in purified and refreshing water.

An RO system removes:

  • Fluoride
  • Salt
  • Sediment
  • Chlorine
  • Arsenic
  • VOCs
  • Herbicides and pesticides
  • Other contaminants

Say Goodbye to Water Worries with BIG B's Reverse Osmosis System

The reverse osmosis system stands out as a comprehensive method of filtration, surpassing other options in its ability to remove an impressive 98% of dissolved solids, resulting in healthier drinking water. While a water distiller can also reduce total dissolved solids (TDS), it falls short of the efficiency achieved by an RO system. 

Improved Water Taste 

Reverse osmosis systems enhance the taste of water by eliminating unpleasant odors and impurities, including chlorine, lead, and other contaminants. This exceptional improvement in taste is particularly advantageous for individuals who favor bottled water over tap water. Furthermore, reverse osmosis systems offer the added benefit of reducing sodium in drinking water, making it a healthier alternative for those with high blood pressure or other dietary restrictions necessitating a low sodium intake.

Reduced Risk of Contamination 

RO systems have the added benefit of minimizing the potential hazards associated with bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms. Corrective osmosis systems ensure drinking water safety by filtering out these contaminants. This advantage is particularly significant for individuals residing in regions with compromised tap water or those facing potential exposure to polluted sources, such as wells or lakes.

Cost Savings

This process offers long-term cost savings by minimizing the necessity to purchase bottled water. Although buying bottled water may initially surpass installation costs, homeowners eventually recover these expenses by reducing spending on bottled water and making fewer visits to the store. Moreover, reverse osmosis systems are known for their enhanced energy efficiency compared to conventional filtration methods, further decreasing operational costs over time.

Increased Longevity 

Corrective osmosis systems can endure for numerous years with proper maintenance and care due to meticulous engineering. This extended lifespan establishes them as a commendable investment for individuals seeking long-term solutions to their home's drinking water requirements without the hassle of frequent filter replacements or component changes. Specific reverse osmosis systems are accompanied by warranties that safeguard against potential issues, offering coverage for parts and labor throughout their lifespan.

Environmentally Friendly

Reverse osmosis systems are an environmentally friendly method for filtering drinking water. They operate efficiently without the use of chemicals or extensive energy consumption. Moreover, these systems generate less waste compared to traditional filtration methods. Instead of constant filter or cartridge replacements, reverse osmosis systems only require periodic filter changes.

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
