MyWater is a leading supplier of water cleaning and filtration solutions, including premium-grade Aquaphor water filtration systems. The highly efficient Aquaphor water filter systems produce much cleaner water through reverse osmosis, which filters down your tap water to the same quality as premium bottled water.
Reverse osmosis is a reasonably simple water treatment procedure commonly used in water filtration. This is when water is channeled through a semi-porous material or filter and is subjected to high pressure to separate ions and unwanted components from the drinking water. This is achieved with a high-pressure pump whose calibration depends on the amount of salt and contaminants in the water: the more contaminants there are, the more pressure is exerted on the water.
The reverse osmosis (RO) process is highly effective and can be relied on to remove up to 99% of contaminants from your drinking water.
Benefits of Reverse Osmosis in Water Filtration
As mentioned above, reverse osmosis is very effective in cleaning up tap water. That is, however, just one of the reasons why it makes the Aquaphor water filtration systems more than worth it:
- The process removes excess salt in water and filters out lead, fluoride, chlorine, and many other impurities.
- It makes water taste and even smell better. Filtered water can also significantly improve the flavors and overall taste of food.
- Cost-effective compared to buying bottled water: can save you up to ten times the amount you spend on bottled water.
- Eliminates the need to use other potentially harmful (at least in large amounts) chemical agents to clean drinking water.
Why Aquaphor Water Filters
MyWater supplies high-quality Aquaphor filters, which convert your typical tap water to almost the same quality as premium bottled water. The compact devices are guaranteed to save you a good amount of money on drinking water. Among other benefits, the Aquaphor water filters:
- Remove up to 99% of chemical contaminants from your tap water
- Remove almost all bacterial and viral disease-causing pollutants from your water
- They are designed to take up minimal space in your home and can fit snugly under the sink
- Require less maintenance (the membranes only need to be replaced once or twice a year)
- Work great even at low levels of water pressure
- Encourage your family to drink more water
- Are made with quality to provide you and your family with years of clean water.
Your Aquaphor RO filtration system requires minimal handling and maintenance all year round. That said, however, it is important to perform routine checks and clean or make repairs when necessary to prolong the life of your filter. If appropriately maintained, you can get years of unfailing service from your RO system and save a good amount on replacements or fixes.
Changing the filter
Your filter system includes three filters:
- The carbon pre-filter
- The reverse osmosis membrane
- The post-filter
Over time, and depending on how many contaminants they filter out, they will become dirty and need cleaning or replacing. The pre and post-filters hold the sediment and protect the delicate RO membrane.
Checking and changing the pre and post-filters regularly helps protect the RO membrane and reduce the number of replacements needed. To replace them, twist them off and add new ones. Check the instructions in your product manual for more detailed information.
Cleaning the tank
Ideally, you should completely drain your tank at least once every two weeks. This is important to allow cleaning and maintain the pressure required for RO. You can then clean your tank following the steps outlined below:
- Disconnect your system from the water source and drain all the water in the tank.
- Carefully remove the filters and the RO membrane and place them on a clean, sterilized surface.
- Depressurize the system once the tank is empty
- Pour your bleach or permitted cleaner into the first unit and plug in the water.
- Once the water fills up, flush the filtration system at least twice.
- When it is clean, replace your water filters and refill the water.
Remember, you don’t need to clean your RO system too often. You can do it when replacing the filters: twice every year.
