How to Choose the Right Reverse Osmosis System

Are you in the market for a RO system? Choosing a reverse osmosis system that is most suitable for your needs might be a tricky undertaking especially if you have no prior experience or any knowledge at all about reverse osmosis water purifiers. Below are some important guidelines on how to choose the right reverse osmosis system. We hope the information will help you make an informed decision when purchasing one.

How to Choose the Right Reverse Osmosis System

Consider the following factors when choosing a RO system

Your Source of Water

Different sources and types of water require different types of RO pumps. Water sourced from the municipal council is already pre-treated to great levels and does not need much filtration. Therefore no need to invest in a more expensive RO system that is meant for water with high concentration of pollutants.

On the other hand, borehole water, river water, dam water, sea water etc, have a high concentration of pollutants and therefore require a more robust RO pump to purify the water.

Flow Rate/output capacity

How much water can the pump filter per hour? The higher the capacity of the output the better the RO pump. This can be determined by your needs however. You should therefore acquire one depending with your needs. For an average household you just need a domestic reverse osmosis pump. However for a commercial plant that needs a lot of water per hour should go for a high output capacity pump. These also have different output capacities.

Choose one that suits your needs. Get in touch with us if you need advice on which RO pump would be ideal for your needs.

Quality of filtration using a TDS meter

A TDS(total dissolved solids) meter is what is used to determine the efficiency of the RO pump. The higher the value the better the pump is. It gauges the difference between the filtered water against the source water. However this is just one of the ways to determine the effectiveness of the pump and not the only way. As discussed above output capacity is also a factor.

Generated Pressure by the pump

Because the pump uses pressure to push water through a membrane, the higher the pressure the pump can produce the faster it can do so which results in bigger output and more efficiency.


Your budget also should be a consideration. Evaluate your needs against your budget to settle for a pump that is within your budget but still serves your needs as best as possible. Get in touch with us if you need advice on making this choice.
