Most of our under sink reverse osmosis (RO) water filtration systems come standard with an European style long reach goosneck drinking water faucet. The minimum hole required on the sink or countertop is 7/16"in diameter. However, the included faucet will fit in holes up to 1 ¼" in diameter.
If the sink has a spare pre-drilled hole you may use it or drill a ½" hole for the faucet in a location convenient for dispensing filtered water and where the faucet stem is accesible from below the sink. Soap dispenser or spray hose holes can be used for the faucet as well.
Alternatively, you can replace your regular kitchen faucet with a luxury triple faucet that lets you connect hot water, cold water and RO filtered water lines.
What is whole house reverse osmosis?
Reverse osmosis or RO, as it is commonly referred to, is the process of purifying water with the use of a permeable membrane to remove unwanted substances from the water. These substances range from contaminants, chemicals, minerals, and impurities. This process is used to turn poor quality water into

Reverse osmosis (RO) was first commercialized at UCLA in the 1960s. Now it is used throughout the world at the advanced, end stages of water treatment. The quality of water output from these RO systems is high. This makes the water safe enough for people to drink and can be pure enough for use in industrial processes.
RO effectively removes dissolved salts that can contribute to water hardness as well as metal ions like lead and mercury. The pore size of RO filters enable proper removal of protozoa, bacteria, and viruses from water. The pores are an order of magnitude smaller than nanofilters and three

The article will aim to help assist you in the understanding of determining the water processing equipment you may need while also providing clarification on some of the small details within determining the correct equipment and chemicals to use within your house or place of business.
To first begin we can discuss why water processing is so important. I don’t have to tell you the importance of water as it is used from everything from drinking water or consumable products, to use within energy systems, boilers and many other applications. The one trouble however that water poses is that it is a universal solvent. It has the ability to dissolve many different chemicals or substances. Now depending on the substance, it may dissolve more or less but most things
