Factors to Consider When Choosing the Best Reverse Osmosis Systems in Kenya
The need for clean safe to drink water is equal to every household no matter their social or economic status. Unfortunately this is a need that is not very well met in this country and a lot needs to be done. To be able to help meet this need Saset Ltd is in the frontline in offering the right solutions. We are a leading supplier and installer of Reverse Osmosis Systems in Kenya.
What is reverse osmosis?
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a process by which water is forced through a tight membrane that restrains passage of solute, particulate matter, bacteria, and endotoxins, among other things, to produce pure water through pressure. It’s one of the processes that makes desalination of seawater possible. It’s also used for water recycling and wastewater treatment.
Use of Reverse Osmosis Systems in Kenya
Reverse Osmosis Systems in Kenya are used to mostly purify borehole or well water because of its salinity nature in most parts of the country. However there are some regions in the country where the water is not saline and the residents especially those in the lower income level just boil the water.
Another type of water that the reverse osmosis systems are used in Kenya is to desalinate sea/ocean water of the Indian Ocean. However in this case it’s mostly used for domestic use and not for large scale use like for municipal distribution. Otherwise Mombasa city would not be having water challenges it has in some sections.
It’s also used to produce highly purified water for drinking water systems used to make bottled water, industrial boilers, food and beverage processing, cosmetics, pharmaceutical production, and many other applications.
Factors to consider when choosing the best Reverse Osmosis Systems in Kenya
The source water pretty much dictates the types of reverse osmosis system that you need. If the water source comes from a water treatment plant like municipal water it has been treated beforehand hence it is often contain less contamination. In this case, reverse osmosis system is ideal.
If a borehole or well is the water source, the contamination normally are quite high as it contains living microorganisms, viruses and bacteria. To get rid of these contaminations, a system with UV light water purifier is highly recommended to eliminate the microorganism in the water.
Water pressure is a crucial factor for a reverse osmosis system to push the water through the membrane to filter off the contamination and produce clean water.
The filtration ratio of reverse osmosis water filter system is used to determine the effectiveness of the system. One method to gauge the effectiveness is using a total dissolved solid (TDS) meter to measure the filtered water against the source water. However this shouldn’t be the sole method to gauge the effectiveness.
Flow rate is how much water the system is able to produce per day. The flow rate depends on different factors such as water pressure and temperature. Hence, if you have a huge consumption need you need to go for a RO system that can meet your needs.
Before buying any reverse osmosis water filtration system, you should consider two types of cost; the initial cost of installing and maintenance cost. Maintenance cost are costs for filter and faulty parts when replacing them.
