Regular Cleaning—A Must to Avoid Reverse Osmosis Membrane Fouling
As time passes, the effectiveness of a reverse osmosis membrane filter diminishes, affecting the quality of the water it produces. Membrane fouling is an inevitable event, especially when a reverse osmosis system is reaching the end of its lifespan, yet there are other factors that can foul the system’s membrane earlier than expected.
