Obstacles in Turning Brackish Water into Freshwater

Many people believe that the bodies of water found on the planet are classified into two: freshwater and seawater. However, there are other bodies of water that fall in the middle; they’re saltier than freshwater, but not salty enough to be called seawater. These are known as "brackish water" and can be found in places where freshwater and seawater meet, notably the Baltic Sea and Caspian Sea.

Facts about Reverse Osmosis Machines for Aquariums

With reverse osmosis (RO), even the smallest of particles can be removed from the water supply, thus keeping it clean and free of potentially hazardous microorganisms. This concept is often used in commercial and industrial applications to provide potable water, but many households also make use of this technology. Your aquarium itself might have one equipped.

How Reverse Osmosis Filters Water

Reverse osmosis is a process wherein a solvent passes through a porous or semipermeable membrane. To make this happen, high pressure is applied to push water through the filters (and the RO membrane). Today, this process is being used the world over to provide potable water for municipal or city use.

Cleaning Your Reverse Osmosis Water Filter System

Keeping your reverse osmosis water filter system clean is important to keep it in functional condition. As the system itself is mostly used for removing impurities and contaminates, failing to clean the system—or replacing the filters—can cause it to accumulate bacteria, eventually.
Cleaning is needed when the salt content of the filter has increased, even in the slightest. Ensure the cleanliness of your RO system with the following steps:

The Types of Reverse Osmosis (RO) Membrane

Water filtering by reverse osmosis is efficient on its own due to its ability to remove almost all kinds of particles from incoming tap water. High pressure moves water through a semi-permeable membrane and this water undergoes ion exclusion (the process where bacteria (other contaminates) and water are separated). The membrane removes the contaminants and are flushed down the drain. There are two different types of membranes, each with its own special quality of efficiency in the water filtration system:

The Benefits of RO Water Treatment Systems

The water supply in brick-and-mortar businesses or water treatment facilities is accessed by plenty of people. This is why these enterprises need to be wary of the safety of their consumers, as well as their numerous workers. The costs involved in water usage may also be a management concern. Reverse osmosis water treatment systems can be a viable solution for these issues.
