As a leader in water filtration, it isn’t uncommon for us to get the question, “Why should I install a whole house RO filtration system?”

The Pros and Cons of Installing A Whole House RO System

Quite frankly, you get the benefit of Reverse Osmosis filtered water (which is the best water) that is relatively easy to install, has full water pressure, and easy to maintain. This is a great choice to not only give you the best drinking water quality but also provide this same water to every faucet in your house. In addition, this system also has the ability to provide this same water for your shower, toilets, cars, swimming pools and so much more! So, is it necessary to place a whole house reverse osmosis system throughout your entire house? Well, that is up to you but if you live in an area with hard water and are concerned about your plumbing then it wouldn’t be a bad idea to think about it.

In the end, whole house RO systems are different than soft water systems because they don’t use salt. RO is a water treatment process that removes contaminants from water by using pressure to force water molecules through a semipermeable membrane. During this process, the contaminants are filtered out and flushed away, leaving clean, delicious drinking water. This drinking quality water is in turn readily available throughout your entire house. With that said, here are some pros and cons of owning a whole house RO system:

PROS

  • Incredible water quality
  • No hard water spots
  • Softer, cleaner water
  • Great water for your pool if you have one
  • Your cars will love it

CONS

  • Size
  • Space availability
  • Cost
  • Maintenance

Whole House RO Models

The whole house RO systems are available in small to mid-range model sizes of 2000 and 4000 gallons per day (GPD) product water output. Our 2000 Gallon Per Day (GPD) system and 300 Gallon Holding Tank are usually appropriate for moderate water consumption and the most commonly bought system. Whereas, a 2000 GPD with 500 Gallon Holding Tank is typically used if you are treating your pool or need more water readily available.

Our 4000 GPD system is more appropriate for very large homes or homes with heavy water consumption. With this system, you can choose to have a 300 or 500-gallon holding tank depending on how much water you need readily available.
