What is Ultrafiltration?
Ultrafiltration (UF) is a type of membrane filtration in which hydrostatic pressure forces a liquid against a semipermeable membrane. This is what a Reverse Osmosis system does. It takes about 3 gallons of raw water to produce one good gallon of water. Not to mention it would cost anywhere from $7500 to $15000 to put in a whole house system and your water bill will be through the roof. The best way to give you “ultra-filtered” water is to get a whole house water filter like the AquaOx.
*NOTE: Not all water contains all contaminants discussed. No water purifying system can remove 100% of every contaminant. If you have a concern about a specific contaminant, please contact us.
Purified drinking water is now enjoyed by billions of people all around the world thanks to the membrane filtration technology. Back in the old days, ultrafiltration technology is only enjoyed by hospitals and large municipals. Today, ultrafiltration water treatment systems are available as water filter systems installed in our homes.
In an ultrafiltration water system, feed water goes through a semipermeable membrane to separate impurities and leave households with clean and safe drinking water. With its 0.02 micron UF membrane, impurities in the feed water are unable to pass through the faucet. Only clean water and dissolved minerals are allowed to go through the faucet of the house.
What Makes Ultrafiltration Different
Ultrafiltration water systems deliver the next level of water treatment by eliminating contaminants without the use of chemicals. Since it uses state-of-the-art technology capable of removing 90 to 100% of pathogens in the feed water, UF water systems produce high-quality drinking water to households. The water system is capable of eliminating bacteria and various pathogens found in the water. The UF technology is renowned for its ability to eliminate impurities without removing the salt and essential minerals in the water.
Why Would You Want an Ultrafiltration Water System?
The UF water system is designed and built to provide the best tasting, clean, and safe drinking water through its semipermeable membrane technology. The membrane in the water filter system reduces the taste and odor of chlorine, lead, VOCs and MTE in the water. The remaining impurities are then removed by the finer membrane to produce premium drinking water. Since the technology was made to eliminate impurities, you can rest assured that the UF water system will do its job to keep your drinking water contaminant-free.
If you want to enjoy purified drinking water without losing its essential minerals, AquaOx’s reverse osmosis is designed to deliver high-quality water. Enjoy our low-cost alternative to a reverse osmosis system without removing the healthy minerals in your drinking water.
