A reverse osmosis system is an ideal solution for those who are looking for a reliable and safe way in which to purify water. Along with removing harmful particles and impurities, a reverse osmosis system is known to improve the overall taste of the water, help save you money, and allow for easy maintenance. However, before taking the plunge and investing in a reverse osmosis system, it is important to get the answers to the following questions: 

  • Is There Any Other Equipment That I Need to Buy Along with a New Reverse Osmosis System?

Yes. You will also need to purchase a new faucet. Reverse osmosis systems will need a separate faucet in order to dispense the clean water. 

  • How Many Stages of Filtration Are Necessary?

You will usually have the option to choose between reverse osmosis systems that have three, four, and five filtration stages. The ones with fewer stages will generally cost less. However, if you live in an area where the water quality is particularly bad, it is always better to be safe rather than sorry, and to opt for a five-stage reverse osmosis system. 

How Much Water Should a Good Quality Reverse Osmosis System Produce?

The general rule of thumb is that a reverse osmosis system that comes with a “50 GPD rating” should be able to produce more than enough water for the average-sized household. 

Does a Reverse Osmosis System Also Soften the Water?

No. The majority of reverse osmosis systems do not come with a built-in water softener. If your home or office’s water hardness level is more than 7 grains per gallon, then you may want to consider investing in a water softener too.
