Hi Waterguy,
Can you explain to me in short form
how reverse osmosis works?

Larry H
Augusta, GA

Sure Larry,
reverse osmosis takes place when
pressure applied to a highly
concentrated solute solution causes
the solvent to pass through a
membrane to the lower concentrated
solution, leaving a higher
concentration of solute on one side,
and only solvent on the other.
Thanks for asking,

Here is my question:
I have a commercial reverse osmosis
system that is rated to produce 5000
gallons per day. We use it every day
for 5-6 hours. (5 days per week) How
often should we change the pre-filter?

Steve C.

Steve,
It is recommended you replace your
pre filter every 30 days. You may not
think the filter cartridge is dirty by
looking at it, but it is good practice to
change your pre filter every 30 days
to be safe.

Can you tell me why reverse osmosis
systems are used in car washes?

Linda J.
Fairbanks, Alaska

Linda,
When you go to your favorite car wash
and you select the spot free rinse
option, you are getting reverse
osmosis water. Reverse osmosis
removes the solids in the water that
make up the spots you see when your
car dries. By rinsing with pure water,
the water evaporates and all thats left
is a clean finish on your car. All good
car washes have the "SPOT FREE
RINSE" included in the options for
customers.
Thanks for asking Linda!

How does excessive suspended
matter effect reverse osmosis
systems.

Max L.
Billings, Montana

Max,
Feed liquids with high quantities of
suspended matter thats not
dissolved will foul out a membrane
quickly. Pre treatment is needed for
optimal processing of a fluid of this
type. Ultra filtration or micro filtration
are often used prior to reverse
osmosis.
Good question Max,
