Refreshing Ice Cubes Begin With Reverse Osmosis Water

There’s nothing better than crystal clear ice. Admit it — just their translucent appearance alone makes any drink taste more refreshing on the spot. Picture this: It’s summertime and you’re floating in the pool, sipping on a clear-iced cocktail. Mmmm!

Now, transport yourself to the dead of winter (we know, it’s drastic, but bear with us). You’re checking to see how your gutters are holding up and, no surprise, you find that a few icicles have formed on your eaves. Forget for a minute that it’s freezing cold, and think about how clear and beautiful those icicles are. Don’t you wish your summertime sips could have ice that pure? Spoiler alert: they can!

Here’s What Makes Icicles so Crystal Clear:

  • The water they form from comes from melted snow and is therefore mineral-free.
  • They form in layers — as water drips down the icicle it freezes, adding layers little by little, rather than freezing all at once. This avoids entrapped air bubbles.

Here’s How to Make Your Ice as Clear as Icicles:

Getting your ice to become clear begins with removing contaminants from your water, like minerals, iron, tannins, or any other dissolved solids. Having these things in your water makes your ice cubes cloudy — yuck! After removing these contaminants with a water filter, your next step toward pure translucent bliss is purifying your water with a reverse osmosis system. This forces water through an extremely dense, semi-permeable membrane, which purifies it and removes most, if not all, of the contaminants that your filter and softener system did not pick up.

Believe it or not, warm weather is on the horizon, with just enough time left to get your ice in tip-top shape for that perfect poolside sip!

Kinetico is an essential part of my home because I care about my health.  Kinetico K5 drinking system removes 99% of contaminants, including chlorine, out of my drinking water.  Not only can I taste the difference, but I feel good knowing that I am only consuming clean pure water.  When you have kinetico, less plastic water bottles are used, which is beneficial to our environment.
