Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration Systems in Atlanta
Regardless of whether you have hard water or soft water in your home, there is a chance that your water is carrying chemicals that can damage your pipes, cause your water to taste unpleasant, and end up costing you money from undue stress on your plumbing systems. Salts and other chemicals used to clean water for public consumption can leave it with a poor taste or smell. However, this can be remedied by installing a water filtration system, such as reverse osmosis.

Why Choose a Reverse Osmosis Water Purification System?
Reverse osmosis (RO) is not only cost-effective, but it is also a very adaptable system that works well whether you have an unaddressed hard water problem or use a water softener. This filtration can be adapted to serve only one area of your home or the entire household. Its multi-level filtration setup allows for various contaminants to be removed, including taste and odor that can be unpleasant.
- Point of use filtration systems are most often installed in the kitchen, as this is where drinking and cooking water originates. The RO filter system is attached to the water line of your sink and sometimes refrigerator to filter out approximately 95 percent of the impurities that cause your water to taste and smell bad.
- Whole-house systems (also known as point of entry systems) are installed on the main water pipes providing your home with water. In this way, regardless of which faucet is used, the water is pure and drinkable. Which you need is based more on the way you use water, what kind of water you have (hard or soft), and your personal preference.

How RO Water Filtration Works
With a RO water filtration, the water pressure itself pushes water through a series of filters, each designed to remove certain impurities. By utilizing the multi-filter system, water is subject to more processing, which helps to remove additional impurities. Once the pure water is through, the impurities are washed down your drain.
Parts used in this process include:
- Sediment filter – This filters out dirt and sediment.
- Carbon filter – This is designed to remove chlorine and other damaging chemicals.
- Reverse osmosis membrane – This removes the majority of the contaminants that get through the carbon filter.
- Polishing filter – This removes any remaining foul taste and odors in the water.
Reverse Osmosis FAQs
Is reverse osmosis water better for you?
Yes and no. Whether the RO system is right for your family depends on what you’re trying to remove from your water and whether you’re dealing with poor taste, unpleasant odor, or another water issue. Filtered water is nearly free of impurities and contaminants, helping to avoid the risk of ingesting chemicals, viruses, and bacteria. This process also tends to remove minerals from your water, which can improve the taste but means you don’t get minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron. However, if you eat a balanced diet, this isn’t a concern.
What water impurities are not removed by this process?
RO removes most impurities from your water supply. Some pesticides and herbicides may not be removed in the filtration process, and small amounts of chlorine may also remain. However, in most cases, the average homeowner’s water supply shouldn’t contain pesticides or herbicides in the first place.
How much does it cost to install a reverse osmosis water system?
The cost of RO system installation depends on the type of system installed and whether you opt for a point of use or point of entry (whole-house) system. Call the team at R.S. Andrews today at 770-983-6042 to discuss your needs and get a quote!
