Reverse Osmosis Filter System Versus Traditional Water Treatment Methods
Traditional water treatment methods generally include boiling and chemical treatment. Both of these methods have been around for a very long time and can be effective in reducing bacteria and contaminants in the water, but there is a much better and effective method which uses the revolutionary “reverse osmosis filtration system.” Because of the growth of industry in the United States, water has become more polluted. This required the use of chemicals to reduce the high levels of bacteria and other contaminants that were not found in water sources years ago. Traditionally, boiling water is a method that has been used to disinfect water by removing microorganisms and most bacteria. The problem with boiling is that it does not remove all bacteria from the water and it can take up to three minutes of boiling to kill most bacteria. Boiling uses a lot of fuel and cooking equipment and, for most applications, must be given time to cool down before it can be used.
