How to Know it’s Time to Replace the RO Membrane Reverse Osmosis or RO is one of the finest technologies to purify water containing high TDS levels of more than 500 ppm. Reverse Osmosis Plant Exporters explain the technology as a separation technology where dissolved and invisible impurities in water are separated with the help of semi permeable membrane or RO membrane that works under high pressure. Constituents of impurities and dissolved solids are magnesium salts calcium iron nitrates lead fluorides arsenic etc. These constituents usually found in ground water. In urban areas and cities ground water is distributed through municipal pipelines and sometimes water tankers are also employed to meet the demand of water supply. Though minerals like calcium and iron are good for human body but other impurities like lead will harm in the long run. RO membrane is critical part of reverse osmosis system. It is a thin film that is made up of microscopic pores. In normal operation the membrane used in RO elements can become contaminated by biological matter mineral buildup insoluble organic contaminants and colloidal particles. Apart from contamination membrane can get clogged to the extent that they can become ineffective in removing the dissolved salts effectively or cause a drop in the output of filtered water or both. This is why most RO purifier models designed

for domestic use are fitted with UV purification feature to eliminate the chances of contamination. It is important that water should first flow via a pre-filter in order to protect the delicate RO membrane to extend the life and to prevent frequent fouling. This pre-filter cartridge will filter the water and make it free from the dirt sand silt and other suspended sediments. You need to change this filter every 6-9 months or as per the water quality supply you are getting. If you take this filter lightly or ignore it too long it can foul or get clogged. This will affect the life of your RO membrane. RO water purifiers are an expensive but superb way to remove toxins and contaminants from water. Servicing of RO plant is also costly as the pre filters and membranes of these plants cost more. This is why Reverse Osmosis Plant Exporters always advice to maintain your RO purifiers. Regular replacement of membrane can save your money that you may need to spend on repairs. If you have any doubt about RO purifiers ask experts. They will tell you how to maintain your purifier.
