Based on the EWG drinking water analysis of over 31 million state water records since 2013, pollutants have always been present in the public tap water Americans drink. These pollutants often include herbicides, pesticides, uranium, arsenic, lead, iron, copper, fluoride, chlorine, and others. These harmful substances are known to cause severe health issues in humans, individually and collectively. For example, in the case of continued exposure, copper can cause liver damage and kidney problems. Lead causes permanent brain, kidney, and other organ failures, especially in pregnant women and infants.
Homeowners who understand these problems actively seek ways to protect their families. One of these ways is the use of reverse osmosis systems. This efficient water filtration solution effectively removes dissolved toxins and salts in public tap water. According to research, RO systems offer an impressive filtration efficiency of 99%. The common types of RO systems include whole-house reverse osmosis systems, tankless reverse osmosis systems, countertop reverse osmosis systems, and more.
Having many options when it comes to RO systems is great, but choosing the best reverse osmosis water system can be a hassle. This blog will discuss your options as you shop for your first reverse osmosis water filtration system in 2023.
