Water Treatment

Water treatment is, collectively, the industrial-scale processes that makes water more acceptable for an end-use, which may be drinking, industry, or medicine. Water treatment is unlike small-scale water sterilization that campers and other people in wilderness areas practice. Water treatment should remove existing water contaminants or so reduce their concentration that their water becomes fit for its desired end-use, which may be safely returning used water to the environment.



Reverse Osmosis

WHAT IS RO?

      Reverse Osmosis works by forcing water against a semi-permeable membrane. The excess invisible chemicals and dissolved solids present in the water are prevented from passing through this membrane, only water molecules are allowed to pass through giving you clean and healthy drinking water. Reverse osmosis (RO) is water treatment system in which almost all water impurities are removed through reverse osmosis membrane. Reverse osmosis systems work by using pressure to force water through a semi-permeable membrane of pore size 0.0001 microns, which is 620,000 times finer than a human hair, 10,000 smaller than a red blood cell, 2,500 times smaller than bacteria and 20 to 500 times smaller than any virus. The RO is suitable for almost all areas where water impurities are reported. RO can reduce the physical impurities, biological impurities, dissolved salts, pesticides, chemical impurities and heavy metals.

Effective

      RO water filters work very effectively and can remove a variety of contaminants which have a molecular structure that is larger than that of water. The semi-permeable membrane traps these contaminants and these are drained away. They are excellent for clearing turbidity and removing contaminants like salts, iron, lead, manganese and calcium. They make an excellent choice where it is desired that the product after purification be free of Chemicals.

Clean drinking water

      RO water filters are marketed as drinking water purification aids and can provide clean drinking water which is free of contaminants. A majority of health problems are embedded in the quality of drinking water which should be free of disease causing agents. RO water filters ensure that purification of water by removing harmful contaminants.

      Municipal additives like fluoride which are found in some areas can also be removed by RO filtration. The filtered water can then, be used for drinking, food-preparation, making beverages, cooking or ice-making.

Convenience

      Fitting a reverse osmosis water filter can provide the welcome convenience of having clean, potable water on the tap. While bottled water and mineral water are popular alternatives, they require one to make sure that supplies are replenished regularly.

Functions of Water in the Body

      The human body is anywhere from 55% to 78% water depending on body size. A rule of thumb, 2/3 of body is consists of water, and it is the main component of human body. Did you know that your tissues and organs are mainly made up of water? Here is the %:

The functions of water in human body are vital. The water:

      Every cell in your body needs water from head to toe. That is why it is so important to drink enough fluid. Take for example, brain consists of 90% of water, if you do not supply enough water to your body, your brain cannot function well, and you will get headache or migraine. Hence, next time, if you feel fatigue and headache, it may be the sign of dehydration.
