Thinking about getting a GE reverse osmosis water system? So were my family and I, until we did a little more research and discovered a few health and safety concerns that came with using them in the home.
First of all, the reverse osmosis process was initially designed for the photo, printing, and medical fields- all of which used machines that needed water that was free of suspended solids, particulate, salts, and minerals.
Now this is fine for mechanical use, but there have been some concerns from experts as to how healthy and safe this kind of water is for humans.
Most people think that the “pure” water we are suppose to drink is just hydrogen and oxygen. But in reality, our bodies are built to run on water and the natural trace minerals that are found in it. In every source of natural water, there are traces of minerals like calcium, iron, potassium, sodium, and magnesium.
Many experts are saying that drinking demineralized water over the long-run can increase your chances of developing mineral deficiencies, and even cancer, at some point in life. Increased free radical production can also negatively impact your health, and even stimulate the natural aging process.
On top of this, since virtually all synthetic chemicals are molecularly smaller than water, a GE reverse osmosis water system cannot effectively remove them without carbon filters.
If you’re anything like me, then you are also probably looking to spend as little as you can for a filtration unit without sacrificing quality. A GE reverse osmosis water system runs for at least $ 275 initially. Then, replacement filters can cost anywhere from $ 50-$ 75.
When comparing these systems to other types of filtration units, I found that there are others on the market that:
* Do a better job removing harmful contaminants in tap water.
* Refrain from removing all the healthy minerals and salts our bodies have evolved to run on.
* Cost a whole lot less initially, and over the long-run.
* Produces more filtered water each hour.
* Don’t need to be plugged in and run on electricity.
The system my family and I ended up going with uses a multi-stage filtration process with different filtering technologies to remove 99% of most harmful contaminants in tap water (without removing the beneficial minerals). And unlike a GE reverse osmosis water system, the one that we got only cost $ 100. And every time we filter a gallon of water, it only costs us 9 cents to assure that it’s safe, healthy, and pure.
