Improve the Quality of Your Well Water with Reverse Osmosis
Groundwater and reverse osmosis.
Groundwater is a vital source of drinking water for many Americans. The U.S. Geological Survey, which supplies scientific data about quality of life as it relates to the earth’s physical structure, has reported that approximately 50 million Americans in rural areas get their drinking water from wells.
Is reverse osmosis water good or bad?
If your water comes from a backyard well, and it looks cloudy or doesn’t taste as fresh as it used to, you should become concerned about its quality. Water often picks up contaminants that affect its odor, taste, and safety. For your family’s health, and the health of any guests who visit your home, you need to have the water tested. Reverse Osmosis is recommended to be trusted and safe for good drinking water.
The World Health Organization conducted a study and found that more than 1,200 parts per million (ppm), or milligrams per liter (mg/L), of dissolved solids in drinking water, is unacceptable. Solids are organic and inorganic substances. Less than 300 ppm of dissolved solids is excellent. Overall, the testers concluded that anything above 900 milligrams of dissolved solids per liter of water is considered poor quality.

It is important to get a professional-grade reverse osmosis well water treatment system. A professional grade will fix the problem and get the well water within regulatory limits. This process removes the impurities and all traces of heavy compounds affecting your water’s quality, such as uranium and mercury, among others.
Reverse osmosis has been around for over a century and has been used commercially since the 1960s, and it is now commonly used to purify well water. It’s the finest filtration known, it is energy-efficient and can reduce total dissolved solids by around 90 percent.
The purification process uses a thin, semi-permeable membrane with an applied high-pressure system to remove things like arsenic, lead, fluoride, and even bacteria from your water. Solute remains on the pressurized side while the pure solvent filters through to the other side.
In other words, with this process, purified water passes through the membrane, and the minerals on the other side stay contained. The minerals are then safely flushed away. As such, high-quality drinking water will once again become available from your backyard well.
How much does a reverse osmosis system cost?
The cost to install a reverse osmose well water treatment system varies depending on many factors. The startup cost will depend on the equipment purchased, however, the most important factor will be the amount of water used per day. The more water generated per day the larger the water filtration system will need to be resulting in an initial higher equipment and installation cost. The initial system cost will range from approx $12,000 to $19,000. The annual costs will depend on the frequency of membrane and filter replacements.
