Kinetico Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Systems
We proudly carry a wide variety of water purification products made by Kinetico, the undisputed industry leader. One of the most popular is the K5 Reverse Osmosis system. It does a great job of removing contaminants; it can ensure that you’ll have 99.9 percent pure water flowing through your home. It removes more contaminants than all other RO systems on the market.
Kinetico’s RO system comes with several different customizable options. For example, some people want to make sure they don’t lose the minerals in their water. While most filtration systems will remove the vast majority of them, the K5 Mineral Plus feature will keep a healthy supply in your water.
How it Works
Explaining the RO process can get technical quickly. To get a basic understanding, you’ll need to have at least a general idea of osmosis.
Think about a glass of water divided in half by a semipermeable membrane, a fancy way of saying a filter. On one side of the filter, you pour a combination of salt and water. You pour plain water on the other side.
This plain water will move through the membrane, which will balance out the salt on the other side. Once it reaches what is known as osmotic pressure, that plain water dilutes the salt. This is the process of osmosis.
Reverse osmosis is, of course, the reverse of the process. The goal is to add pressure to overcome osmotic pressure. In the case of your home’s water, you create that pressure when you turn on your faucet. The tap water moves through the filter, and reverse osmosis catches the contaminants. What you have left is incredibly pure water to drink and take a shower or a bath.
Contaminants, Be Gone
The type of protection you need from the K5 will depend on the contaminants in your water. If, for example, a test shows you have VOCs (volatile organic compounds) in your water, then you’ll need the K5 VOC Guard feature. VOCs are dangerous because they include substances like paint, cleaning supplies and pesticides – and who wants to drink those?
If your water contains harmful microbes, such as viruses and bacteria, you’ll need the Purefecta Guard added to your K5 system.
