- WHAT IS ROYAL OXYLIFE PURIFIERS RECOMMENDED FILTER CHANGE SCHEDULE?
Sediment Pre-Filter – If the mud or molecule level is high in your drinking water then Change the filter every after 3 months. Sediment filter need to clean once in month. Initially its milky white and when its turn brown or black even after cleaning then it is sign of replacement.
Inline Sediment Filter – Change every 6-12 months more often in areas with very high turbidity in water
Carbon Pre-Filter – Change every 6-12 months. This will help to ensure membrane life and quality
Reverse Osmosis Membrane – Change the reverse osmosis membrane every 24 months or replaced if pure water flow is very slow, water taste is different/ hard etc
Carbon Post Filter – Change this filter every 12 months to ensure quality water. Do not wait until taste is a problem
All reverse osmosis systems require some periodic maintenance to ensure you are getting the same water quality as when the system was new. The most important maintenance for an RO membrane is on time filter change
- WHERE DOES MY DRINKING WATER COME FROM?
The drinking water that is supplied to our homes comes either from surface water or groundwater. Surface water gets collected in streams, rivers, lakes, and reservoirs whereas ground water gets collected in pores and spaces within rocks and underground aquifers. We obtain groundwater by drilling wells and pumping it to the surface. Public water systems provide surface water and groundwater. Water treatment systems are either government or privately-held facilities. Surface water systems withdraw water from the source, treat it, and deliver it to our homes whereas ground water systems withdraw and deliver water, but they do not always treat it.
- WHAT IS HARD WATER?
The most common hardness causing minerals are calcium and magnesium that is dissolved in water. Hard water is the most common problem faced by a lot of people these days. Hard water spots your glasses and dishes, makes laundry dull and causes. soap scum and scale to build-up making cleaning a chore.
- WHY IS IT ESSENTIAL TO REMOVE DISSOLVED IMPURITIES FROM DRINKING WATER?
Dissolved Impurities such as Pesticides, Rust, Heavy Metals, Arsenic, and Fluoride etc. are harmful to our health. They may cause serious diseases such as cholera, hepatitis A & B, jaundice, typhoid and even cancer. They also spoil the taste of water. When these dissolved impurities are removed, the water becomes healthy as well as tasty.
- WHAT TYPES OF TECHNOLOGIES ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURIFYING WATER?
The most commonly used methods of purification are Chlorination, Boiling, Ultra filtration (UF), Ultra Violet (UV) Disinfection and Reverse Osmosis (RO) Purification.
- WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES OF PURIFIERS USING ONLY UV TECHNOLOGY?
UV purification has been popular since last few years. It does kill bacteria and viruses but does not remove dissolved impurities such as Pesticides, Rust, Heavy Metals, Arsenic, and Fluoride etc.
- WHY RO WATER PURIFIERS ARE SAID TO BE BETTER THAN UV WATER PURIFIERS?
UV water purifier does not change the taste of water and does not remove dissolved impurities, whereas the RO water purifier makes the water tasty. There is no storage in UV water purifier, whereas RO purifier has a storage tank. If there is no electricity UV purifier does not deliver water, whereas RO water purifier will deliver already stored water
- HOW DOES AN RO SYSTEM FILTER WATER?
RO systems typically filter water using the following steps:
- Tap water flows through a sediment filter to remove dirt, rust, and other solid objects.
- The water then flows into a carbon filter which removes 98% of the chlorine and organic chemicals.
- The next stop is the reverse osmosis membrane which separates up to 99% of the dissolved contaminants from the water molecules. These removed impurities are rinsed down the drain leaving behind only safe water.
- This water is stored in a reservoir tank and is accessed through a faucet.
- The final step involves pushing water through a carbon block polishing filter to enhance the taste & odor. Reverse osmosis removes more contaminants than other carbon, faucet or pitcher systems. RO systems can remove nitrates, sodium, and other dissolved inorganic and organic compounds that other systems can miss.
- IS THERE ANY WATER WASTAGE DURING RO PURIFICATION PROCESS?
Yes, RO and RO+UV water purifiers produce a lot of waste water almost 70% water is wasted during the RO purification process. This wastage water is not drinkable.
- WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF DOUBLE PURIFICATION BY RO + UV/UF?
Unlike conventional water purification processes based on a single technology, double purification by RO and UV/UF has the following distinct advantages:
- Double purification leaves less scope for impurities to pass through.
- Ensures bacteria and viruses are totally killed.
- Although RO purification process removes even dissolved impurities, backup purification by UV and UF processes makes the water 100% Safe all the time.
