5 Stage Reverse Osmosis Filtering

23 October 2018

5 stage reverse osmosis is one of the best methods of water purification. While most water filters only remove large chunks of contaminants, 5 stage systems remove heavy dirt particles as well as 99% of the contaminants.

5 stage reverse osmosis is recommended for areas with very hard, unpleasant smelling and tasting water. People living in the Pilbara will be able to relate to having unpleasant drinking water, but to our surprise, we are finding more and more homes with poor quality water in Perth also.

To check the quality of your drinking water, we start with a Total Dissolved Solids reading, or TDS reading. TDS is measured in milligrams per unit volume of water (mg/L) and also referred to as parts per million (ppm).

Unfortunately in Australia, there is no maximum concentration level set but many countries around the world have set the maximum TDS at 500ppm. You may be surprised to learn that most of the TDS readings we do across Western Australia are above this level!

Our 5 stage reverse osmosis systems produce clean and pure fantastic tasting water with a TDS under 50ppm, which is as close to rain water as you can get.
