They are systems that integrate technologies such as UV (ultraviolet light), activated carbon and Reverse osmosis RO.
Ready-to-connect water purification equipment under the sink and in the refrigerator.
Types of water purifiers
There are different types of filters for your kitchen, and each one has its important differences.
Purifiers should be placed under your sink to connect to the cold water line. These water filters are usually the most economical, and with very good efficiency to eliminate the pollutants that the water can bring from the municipal network. Another benefit of these purifiers is that they can be easily adapted for use with any water connection in your home. This could include a line for the refrigerator or an ice machine.
One thing to remember with the filters that are placed under the sink, they use their own faucet, independent of the one you use to wash your kitchen utensils. And they must make an additional hole to place this key. This is for the cartridges to last much longer, if the purifier were used to wash everything they would have to be changed more frequently. It will also allow you to use the hot water from your kitchen sink, because you will not use the purified water tap.
Reverse Osmosis Water Filter
Reverse osmosis (RO) purifiers use a multi-stage filtration process, and being a very closed membrane that produces the best quality of water that exists for drinking, but when producing with some slowness the water is stored in a tank for always have water available.
The stages of this team are:
Water filter for sediments greater than 5 microns
Two 5 micron mesh activated carbon cartridge cartridges (removes organic contaminants and removes chlorine that can damage the reverse osmosis membrane).
Reverse osmosis membrane with 10 angstrom filtration, which removes virtually all organic and inorganic contaminants from water, including microorganisms.
Activated carbon in-line post cartridge.
Reverse osmosis systems are widely recommended as the most effective water purification option, due to their ability to treat almost any type of water, even if it contains arsenic or fluorides.
One of the drawbacks of an RO system is the need for the system to have constant self-cleaning, which makes it reject a part of the water that enters the equipment. It could be considered to be a waste of water, but it could be solved if it can somehow be sent to the garden or to a nearby deposit, in the end it is totally safe water. Another thing to consider with an RO system is installation, and the costs can be more than other types of under-sink water systems.
Many reverse osmosis systems are being manufactured with an easier to install design. RO system cost is usually higher than other systems, but remember that you are getting the highest quality water purification available.
How does a water purifier work?
One of the reasons that under-sink systems are so popular is the simple design, the system does not have to be filled with jugs of water. They are designed to fit under a sink and in a completely hidden closet.
An under-sink water filter works essentially like a water purifier like the ones we know, using the same steps but in a small way. The water line that comes from your main water supply connects to the purification system so that the water flows directly through your cartridges and up to your tap.
