Why do systems have a discharge water outlet?
Many times we are faced with the common question whether a system has a discharge outlet. The perception of having a discharge outlet means there is a wastage of water.
The truth of the matter about water filters that have discharge is that the process of filtration that produces a purer version of water means something has to go. The discharge water outlet that is particular for Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems are such that it is flushing the unwanted water away so that the purity of the water is enhanced.
Think of it like a mini water factory that works so hard to get you the water.
For persons who want the assurance that the water is pure and safe particularly for persons with gut health issues or suffering from kidney issues, our recommendation that RO systems may work a lot better to safeguard the water. It doesn't mean that filters are not strong enough but this system just takes filtration up a notch.
Would the filters be changed more often? Unlikely as the discharge water is one filtration process and the membranes are another level of it so technically the filters would last a lot longer.
Knowledge is key when it comes to picking a dispenser of choice and RO systems are very popular in Europe, USA and some parts of Asia. The water quality is low and RO Systems gives peace of mind. It comes with a price too as it takes up electricity compared to the non-electrical undersink point of water filters.
We have incorporated alkaline mineral into the RO systems so that it doesn't just serve up plain water but it has an alkaline component to it. Very unique for the traditional RO systems that are already in the market.
Not all discharge outlet is bad. It is part of the process.
