Reverse Osmosis System for water ionizers from AlkaViva (with water remineralizer, permeate pump and water reservoir)
Protect Your water Ionizer
More and more people are coming to realize that the “perfect water” system would combine the purity of Reverse Osmosis (R.O.) water filtration pumps with the tremendous benefits provided by alkaline, ionized water by a water ionizer. Historically, this has not been easily achieved for a variety of reasons. The WQA certified experts at AlkaViva have solved the problem of combining these two phenomenal water technologies. Now you can have perfectly clean and remineralized water and perfectly healthy ionized alkaline water with AlkaViva reverse osmosis alkaline water system!
The AlkaViva Reverse Osmosis Alkaline Water System is the ultimate R.O. water filtration solution and comes complete with a water remineralizing filter, pump and 5 gallon water tank.
The simple, yet revolutionary Permeate Pump (ERP1000) uses no electricity as it is powered by the hydraulic energy of brine water usually lost to the drain.
In other words, the reverse osmosis pump forces product water into the storage tank, reducing membrane back pressure and maximizing available feed pressure.
It also dramatically improves the efficiency of R.O. water production, reducing wastewater by up to 80%.
Other benefits of this Permeate Pump (as well as a higher delivery pressure) are up to 4 times faster reverse osmosis pump production, superior water quality and extended water filter/ membrane life.
With an extra large tank and re-mineralizer water filter, this reverse osmosis alkaline water system is an ideal solution for extremely hard water or unhealthy as water is first thoroughly cleaned and then the beneficial minerals are added back into the filtered purified water.
To keep AlkaViva Reverse Osmosis Alkaline Water System functioning at an optimum level, its water filters(carbon water filter, taste and odour water filter, water remineralizer filter) need to be changed annually.
Additionally, the R.O. Membrane needs to be replaced every two years.
AlkaViva Reverse Osmosis Alkaline Water System includes
1. Sediment water Filter
2. Carbon Block Filter
3. R.O. Reverse Osmosis Membrane
4. Inline Re-mineralizing water filter
5. water Tank
6. Taste and Odor water Filter
7. Permeate Pump
The Issues with Reverse Osmosis filtered water
Reverse Osmosis is by far the most popular water filtration /treatment technology in use in the USA today. Reverse osmosis pumps utilize a technology called nano-filtration (typically .009 micron) to physically filter water and remove virtually all suspended and dissolved material in water. To put a micron into perspective: a postage stamp is more than 25,000 microns long, the eye of the typical needle is usually 749 microns wide, a human hair is 40 to 120 microns in diameter, a grain of salt is about 70 microns across. The smallest particle visible to the naked eye is about 30-40 microns. R.O. filters to 9/1000th of a single micron. The quality of R.O. membranes vary but typically between 90% and 98% of all suspended materials in water (good and bad) are removed and flushed down the drain.
R.O. water filtration and water ionization are often thought of as polar opposites in terms of their effect on the water. Water made with a reverse osmosis pump is typically acidic and virtually mineral free, while ionized water is high in pH and rich in alkalizing minerals. The negative impact of more acid in our body (that is already too acidic due to chemicals, stress, poor food, and lack of healthy exercise) is obvious. Furthermore, many health experts believe that mineral-free water can be harmful and can actually lead to a de-mineralization of the body. Pure water molecules attach to molecules they come in contact with and flush them from the body. This includes the flushing of beneficial alkaline minerals, which is detrimental to our delicate acid/alkaline balance.
The good news about reverse osmosis pumps are that with them, virtually all dangerous contaminants are removed so you get virtually pure water. There are however some very difficult issues with Reverse Osmosis R.O. – especially when you attempt to mate it with an water ionizer. First, in addition to removing all the contaminants, Reverse Osmosis R.O. removes almost all the naturally occurring minerals from the water. water ionization / electrolysis needs the minerals / electrolytes to work, so an water ionizer will not usually work well on Reverse Osmosis R.O. filtered water. Thus you need to remineralize the Reverse Osmosis filtered water
Secondly, R.O. membranes process a very small volume of water and need a storage water tank so water is available when you need it.
How much water will AlkaViva reverse osmosis alkaline water system produce?
R.O. Reverse Osmosis storage water tanks consist of a container with an internal rubber bladder. The water tanks are rated by the volume of their external shell, but the actual amount of water that can be extracted from the water tank is much less. On a typical storage tank, approximately 3.2 gallons are available with an extraction capacity of only around 1.5 gallons.
Since water ionizers split alkaline and the acidic streams, one can expect to draw about .84 gallons of alkaline water and .66 of acidic before the tank runs dry with a traditional sized tank of 3.2 gals. Therefore, the AlkaViva reverse osmosis alkaline water unit includes a high capacity 5 gallon storage water tank.
