How To Maintain Your Brand New Reverse Osmosis System

We all want healthy and clean water to drink. Sometimes the water that is piped into our homes is less than desirable. Keep in mind a reverse osmosis system is a great way to get clean water that is high quality and healthy in your home. Making sure that your reverse osmosis system is properly cared for is the best way to ensure that it lasts.

RO System Maintenance

When it comes to your RO system, the first thing that you need to do is ensure that you are changing your filters regularly. You need to make sure you change your RO prefilters every 6 months to one year, or as needed, if your water is tasting strange. For your post filters, you should be changing them at least once a year. The membranes of your system also need to be changed out. Your hard water membrane needs to be changed every 2 to 4 years, while the soft water membrane needs to be changed every 5 to 7 years.

Another thing you can do is empty the RO storage tank every 2 weeks. This ensures that the water in the tank is clean and that no debris or dirt is hanging out in your tank. You also need to sanitize your tank to prevent bacteria growth. You can get a sanitizer that can be run through the system to help prevent slime and other nastiness that might be growing there. You also need to be getting proper maintenance. If you see a problem it needs to be taken care of soon so that more damage is not done to the system.

My RO System Is Leaking

The last thing you want to notice is that your system is leaking. A reverse osmosis system is a relatively enclosed system, and it is not something that is open or that needs a ton of constant care. If you notice leaking, you do need to get the help of a professional company or contractor to come and take care of your system.

They will be able to look at your system, suggest fixes and other maintenance and care that your system might need, and they will be able to help your system last longer. It is so much easier to take the time to get someone in to look at your system and take care of it before the issues get out of hand.
