If you have been running your Reverse Osmosis (RO) and remineralisation system for 3+ years, it’s time to add this to your cart.
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. The membrane should be changed every 2 years at the same time as replacing the polishing cartridge or if you notice a significant drop in water passing through the reverse osmosis system.
