Reverse osmosis water filters are complex, multi-stage systems that are recognised as one of the most efficient filters for removing even the most problematic contaminants. RO filters don’t require intense monitoring, however – as with any water filter – you need to change the filter cartridges and the RO membrane that make up the system. Sometimes, you may also need to clean the storage tank and monitor the health of your filter cartridges and reverse osmosis membrane. To help you better maintain your system, here are some of the must-have accessories for your reverse osmosis filter:
Expressed in mg/L or ppm (parts per million), total dissolved solids (TDS) refer to the total amount of dissolved minerals, salts or metals, anions or cations in a given volume of water. When TDS levels rise in your water, it’s an indication that your water has certain contaminants in it. A TDS meter can help you measure the level of total solids in your water, and determine whether your RO membrane and pre and post-filter cartridges need replacing.
