Why a Sapphire Water System?
Sapphire Water RO systems offer the next level of water treatment for your home or business. Our systems can be purchased as a stand alone unit, or enhanced to a Whole House System. This would include pretreatment options, an MTU, holding tank, as well as finishing unit. Our Filtralite filters offer clients More Water for Less Cost, providing leading edge filtration technology using engineered ceramic media. These pretreatment and finishing options are especially useful in rural and remote areas with high iron and manganese content.
How does Reverse Osmosis work?
Reverse osmosis is a water filtration or purification process ideal for removing substances such as metal ions, hardness, total dissolved solids and dissolved organics. Using a semi-permeable membrane, an applied pressure is used to overcome osmotic pressure. Using high pressure, raw water flows through one side of the membrane, pushing the raw water through the membrane. The solute (water) is retained on the pressurized side of the membrane and carries through, and the solvents (dissolved solids or unwanted substances) pass through to the other side. The result is cleaner, tastier, and safer water.
What is Reverse Osmosis?
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is one of the most popular methods of filtration. A home RO system is an effective alternative to purification due to its ability to deliver superior levels of safety and taste at a reasonable cost. Many consumers are now skipping the bottled water and investing in a home reverse osmosis system that can remove over 99% of dissolved minerals, chlorine, and contaminants.
