RO water

produces extremely high quality purified water.The reverse osmosis process separ ates suspended and dissolved solids to waste and produces high purity water reduction of salts (chlorides etc.), metals, hardness, chemicals, chlorine, turb idity and taste as well as odour. effectively remove impurities in the water including rust, scale and dirt as wel l as chlorine, most chemicals (herbicides and pesticides) and harmful bacteria s uch as Crytosporidium and Giardia. 5 stage ~ 1.pre-filter and removes physical particles and sediment such as dirt, rust, grit and algae. 2.pre-filter and removes chlorine, pesticide and insecticide residue as well as heavy metals such as lead, mercury and zinc. 3.r ultra filtration and filters chemicals and odours out of the water n 4.eliminates bad taste, odours and removes chemicals and pesticides such as c hlorine, chloramine and trihalomethane. It also removes cysts and bacteria such as giardia and cryptosporidium and gives the water a final polish and clean befo re drinking. 5.PI Alkaline Water Filter which is used to add all the good minerals and cal cium ions back into the water as well as energising the water and removing harmf ul ions. method ~The water is sent through a permeable membrane and it holds back any ite ms that should not pass through it. The membrane has tiny holes that only allow the molecules of water flow through it. The items that are larger are kept in th e membrane and the clean water is sent to a storage tank

DISADVANTAGES:

pH is usually between 5.2 - 6pH but will drops lower as it sits exposed to open air. Fasting using distilled water can be dangerous because of the rapid loss of elec trolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride) and trace minerals like magnesium, defici encies of which can cause heart beat irregularities and high blood pressure. Coo king foods in distilled water pulls the minerals out of them and lowers their nu trient value. Distilled water is an active absorber and when it comes into contact with air, i t absorbs carbon dioxide, making it acidic. The more distilled water a person dr inks, the higher the body acidity becomes.

mineral-free more mineral loss, the greater the risk for osteoporosis, osteo arthritis, hypothyroidism, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and a lo ng list of degenerative diseases generally associated with premature aging. This pure water should be neutral with a pH value of 7. However, it measures aci d pH! It doesn't taste very good causing calcium and other essential minerals to be stripped from bones and teeth in order to neutralize its acidity he membrane of a reverse osmosis system is impermeable to natural trace minerals . These minerals not only provide a good taste to water, but they also serve a v ital function in the body s system. Water, when stripped of these trace minerals, can actually be unhealthy for the body. Reverse osmosis also wastes a large portion of the water that runs through its s ystem. It generally wastes two to three gallons of water for every gallon of pur ified water it produces. Reverse osmosis is also an incredibly slow process when compared to other water treatment alternatives. Drinking de-mineralized water over a period of years can create serious health p roblems. It does not remove dissolved pesticides and herbicides present in water. It also cannot filter out pharmaceutical drugs that have made their way into the water supply system. This is because these dissolved substances are of smaller size th an the pores in the membranes of the reverse osmosis water filter.
