Reverse osmosis is a highly specialized way to treat your water so it makes sense that it might require some special accessories as well. One of the best of these is special reverse osmosis faucets. These are both practical and aesthetically pleasing and make a great addition to any kitchen, bathroom, wet bar or anywhere else you may need one. Reverse osmosis removes dissolved solids from your water, solids that make your water “hard” and unpleasant to drink.
Reverse osmosis concentrates the dissolved solids on one side of a semi-permeable membrane, allowing the chamber on the other side to hold only the pure, clean water. This results in water that is far more healthful for you than untreated water, and it tastes much better, too.
Striking Reverse Osmosis Faucets
The beautiful sleek lines of these faucets will make you want to install a reverse osmosis drinking water system even if you don’t already have one. The higher end models of these faucets, which are still reasonably priced, have tons of extra features as well. Many have multiple lines leading from them: one for the pure water, one for the dirt water, and a third for the drain.
Look for faucets that have an automatic TDS monitor built right in to them. TDS stands for Total Dissolved Solids, and monitoring this number is how you know when it is time to replace your filter. Some faucets are set up so each glass of water you pour will automatically trigger a TDS reading, meaning you can always be sure that your family is drinking only the safest, cleanest water.
