How Temperature Affects RO Water Production

How Temperature Affects RO Water Production

Every year, thousands of dollars are wasted on unneeded membrane replacements because hobbyists overlook the negative effects of cold water on their reverse osmosis (RO) system performance. Assumptions are generally made that their membranes have fouled, when in fact, the temperature of the feed water has just dropped and caused the membrane production to be significantly reduced. Often, this is because hobbyists forget to take into consideration the lower feed water temperatures experienced during the winter season.

Removing Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)

Removing Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) are equal to the total weight of all solids (minerals, salts or metals) that are dissolved in a given volume of water, and expressed in parts per million (ppm) so water quality and purity is often measured by the amount of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in the water. Depending on how reverse osmosis filtered water is to be used, it is often necessary to further decrease the amount of TDS in the RO filtered water. For all aquatic animals lowering total dissolved solids is very important for osmotic regulation and hydration.

Are Smaller Micron Pre-Filters Better?

Are Smaller Micron Pre-Filters Better?

There have been several discussions lately on social media regarding reverse osmosis system pre-filter cartridges and micron ratings. We would like to jump into the discussion with information we think will help explain the purpose of sediment and carbon pre-filters in RO and RO/DI systems and what the various micron ratings mean. Here goes...

Aquatic Life 2-Stage Twist-In Drinking Water Filtration Unit with Faucet

NEW Aquatic Life 2-Stage Twist-In Drinking Water Filtration Unit with Faucet Installation

In this video, we take you through installing the Aquatic Life Twist-In Drinking Water Filtration Unit under a typical kitchen sink. This two-stage unit filters tap water through a sediment and activated carbon cartridge before flowing through the included chrome faucet.
