There are many different water filters available on the market. However, most people will agree that a reverse osmosis filter is the best option for homes and businesses. Of course, you’ll need a reputable specialist in reverse osmosis Sydney.

The reverse osmosis filter uses pressure to force water through a semi-permeable membrane. In the process, the minerals and other contaminants are removed, giving you almost pure water. The taste is noticeably different and the water is better for your overall health.

Choosing a reverse osmosis filter is a good idea. But, like any system, there are several ways you can improve its performance, that has to be a good thing!

Include a Pressure Gauge

It’s very easy to fit a pressure gauge into your supply line so that it can monitor the pressure of the water through the filter. Having a pressure gauge will allow you to tweak the filter and ensure it has a pressure of between 60 and 80 psi. This is when you’ll get the optimum performance and efficiency.

It’s worth noting that fitting a boost pump may be necessary to get the necessary pressure and get the best possible performance from your reverse osmosis filter.

You may also be aware that the water board recommends a pressure of around 50psi to reduce wear on your appliances. You can increase the pressure to your reverse osmosis filter to maximize efficiency and then add a regulator after. This will ensure your plumbing system is not under excessive stress.

Filter All Your Water

It should be obvious from the above point that the reverse osmosis filter works best if it is on the supply line for your entire house, before anything else. However, to improve the efficiency of the reverse osmosis filter even more you can add a sediment filter before the RO in your main supply.

This will remove larger particles, allowing the RO system to work effectively and last longer with minimal maintenance.

Flush Your System

A great tactic to ensure you always have fantastic tasting water is to install a flush kit. You can then periodically drain your storage water tank and flush your entire plumbing system. It prevents contaminants from building up and problems developing.

In fact, draining and cleaning your storage tank can also help to prevent mold and algae growth, as well as keep your water tasting great.

The flush kit can be automatic. Once installed you can set the program up and leave it to take care of itself.

Get The Professionals

To maintain the efficiency of any system it’s a good idea to have it inspected by the professionals at least once a year. This will help to ensure all the components are working properly and any problems are spotted early. It won’t just help the efficiency of your RO system, it will also help to minimize the impact on your wallet.

Don’t forget, your system does have filters that need to be replaced, stick to the schedule and you’ll extend the life and efficiency of your RO filter.
