The Reverse Osmosis Membrane is a thin film that is made up of microscopic pores. In normal operation, the membrane used in RO elements can become contaminated by biological matter, mineral buildup, insoluble organic contaminants, and colloidal particles.
Apart from contamination, the membrane can get clogged to the extent that they can become ineffective in removing the dissolved salts effectively, cause a drop in the output of filtered water, or both.
- This membrane is what removes fluoride, biological matter, mineral buildup, insoluble organic contaminants, and colloidal particles
- The membrane should be changed every 2 years
- Replace at the same time as the polishing cartridge or if you notice a significant drop in water passing through the reverse osmosis system
If you have been running your Reverse Osmosis (RO) and remineralisation system for 3+ years, it’s time to add this to your cart.
NB: All the replacement filters on our website are made in the USA and therefore do not use the British standard hype thread. Instead, they use NTP (National tapered pipe thread). This it the reason why we supply the fittings with the RO system and you need to re-use the same fittings that are supplied when replacing your filters.
