Ordinary tap water is contaminated by substances harmful to delicate aquatic life. Municipal and well water supplies all contain fertilizers. Water treatment plants concentrate on human bio-hazards by removing bacteria and viruses before they get to your faucet. Dissolved fertilizers, like nitrates, phosphate, potassium, silicates, and iron, are kept at federal standards, which are hundreds of times higher than the acceptable range for an aquarium.These pollutants not only make your aquarium hard to keep clean, but it robs your tank of oxygen, lowers pH, and kills beneficial bacteria. They must be removed from the water to help insure your aquarium is one of worry-free enjoyment. The importance of using water purified by Reverse Osmosis cannot be understated.
Lessening the growth of algae is the goal of most aquarium hobbyists, and utilizing RO water for this purpose is a common practice. It is becoming more common for local water authorities to treat tap water with orthophosphates in order to prevent corrosion and scale formation in pipes. Unfortunately, this phosphate overload strikes freshwater aquariums with the plague of algae. In marine aquariums, high phosphate levels are even more problematic, especially when corals are present.
RO water minimizes the growth of algae and keeps dangerous toxins out of your aquariums.
For the marine enthusiast, it is well known that the waters surrounding coral reefs are among the cleanest and the most beautiful in the world. So, if you intend to bring the beauty of a coral reef into your home, you must provide the cleanest water possible.
In most Reverse Osmosis systems, tap water first passes through a high-efficiency, solid block sediment filter where silt, sediment and particulates are removed. Water is then forced through a solid block carbon which efficiently absorbs chlorine, chloramines, pesticides, and other harmful organic chemicals.
The water, now stripped of membrane-damaging particles and chemicals, then flows into the RO module. Here, pure water molecules are forced through a series of super-thin RO membranes, leaving behind salts, bacteria, viruses, hardness and other impurities, which are eventually flushed out of the system.
