Water filtration systems are incredibly popular in Maricopa County, due to the notoriously hard water in the area. Reverse osmosis water systems are considered the gold standard when it comes to water filtration, and it is not hard to see why. The systems are effective, affordable, require very little maintenance and take up far less physical space than other water filtration systems on the market. Are you considering installing a reverse osmosis water system? Read on for just a few of the reasons that you should be.


Reverse osmosis water systems are exceptionally thorough when it comes to removing particles from water. They are so effective that they even remove contaminants like arsenic. That is because a reverse osmosis filtration system’s three cylindrical canisters (one a membrane and two carbon filters) essentially cleans the water three times. The first carbon filter removes any large sediment that can clog or interfere with the membrane. Then the membrane, which is made of plastic, works to remove anything the carbon filter might have missed. This is all before the water is finally passed through the other carbon filter before being directed to your tap. But with water in most parts of the United States being relatively safe to drink, what practical benefits would you see on a day-to-day basis by installing a reverse osmosis system? While we could go ahead and write a book, we went ahead and narrowed it down to three for this blog post instead.


Summer will be here before you know it and in the Phoenix area, it means that you HAVE to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated in the triple-digit heat. And while some in the Phoenix area panic too much about the safety of the city’s drinking water, it does not exactly taste great either.

Taste is a subjective thing, sure. But many people prefer the taste of pure, clean water. It is why so many bottled water companies put so much effort into selling us all water purified with reverse osmosis. But by installing a system right into your home, you can get the same water you would pay $2 for in a store for roughly 2 cents per gallon. That’s right. Your taste buds will likely be thanking you when you install a reverse osmosis system, but your wallet will feel a little bit heavier too. And that is even before you factor in some of the other savings you will see from a reverse osmosis water system over the course of owning it.


While the purity of reverse osmosis filtered water is a great alternative to expensive bottled waters, it can also extend the life of some of your appliances. Dishwashers, washing machines and ice makers can all benefit. Reverse osmosis removes a whole host of things from water that can have a negative impact. One of the primary benefits to your appliances is the removal of minerals, which can create nasty hard water buildups in the appliances and even interfere with the efficacy of your soaps or detergents. Not only that, but over time those minerals can build up and scale, shortening the life of your appliances.


Here’s the thing: Soap reacts negatively to hard water. Once the soap hits minerals like calcium and magnesium in hard water, it creates an “insoluble soap curd” on your skin. You know that weird, filmy feeling you sometimes get when you are trying to rinse soap off of your hands or shampoo from your hair? That’s the soap reacting to mineral ions in the water. By installing a reverse osmosis water system, you eliminate minerals, thus cutting the icky curd business altogether. This benefit even extends beyond your grooming routine in the bathroom and into the kitchen.

You know those pesky hard water spots you get on your glassware? Do you ever pull plates out of the dishwasher and feel like there is a film on them? That is the same phenomenon outlined above: your dish detergents are reacting to minerals in your hard water. But because a reverse osmosis system eliminates all of those minerals, your detergent is able to do its job and make your dishes squeaky clean.
