Reverse Osmosis Filtration and Hard Water

Having excellent water quality running through your house is becoming increasingly popular. In many parts of the country, it is common to have high levels of calcium in your fill water. Over time, calcium, magnesium, and other hardness minerals that are located in your tap water can cause hard water challenges throughout your home. Some of the most common areas to see hard water spots are in the following areas:

  • Faucets
  • Showerheads
  • Countertops
  • Swimming Pool
  • Cars

If you live in an area and struggle with any of these one option to help is installing a soft water system but this requires salt and this also leaves residual challenges as well. So, what can you do? You can install a Reverse Osmosis Whole House filtration system.

Whole House Reverse Osmosis Filtration Systems

Many homeowners are familiar with the under-the-sink mini RO systems that provide drinking water. Well, these types of systems are now available for your entire house, they are just a little bigger. The following is some basic information on the systems we custom build for you.

Components Required

A whole house RO filter is not just composed of the machine itself but can include pre-treatment filters, storage tanks, and distribution components as well. Depending on your source of water, an antiscalant tank might be necessary as well to keep the system running smoothly.

Capacity

The biggest decision you will need to make is finding the right capacity for a whole house RO water filter system to meet your needs. The average American uses an estimated amount of 80 to 100 gallons of water each day, but these needs can vary greatly depending on your household water usage. You should consider your family’s water consumption during peak hours, such as in the morning and at night when bathrooms, kitchen, and laundry may all be in use.

Once you determine your maximum water usage at any point in time, you must decide on the best size storage tank. The volume of the tank should at least be your average consumption for a day. We offer storage tanks that hold 300 gallons and 500 gallons of RO water.
