Reverse osmosis is when particles and contaminants are removed from water by forcing the water through membranes that filter it out, similar to an air filtration system. Reverse osmosis improves water for cooking, cleaning, bathing, and other uses. For example, have you ever noticed the buildup around the nozzle of your shower or bathtub head? That is typically calcium and other minerals that get deposited by the water and build up over time. Reverse osmosis can remove those minerals and keep your system from getting build-up.

One of the realities of living in the Texas Panhandle is dealing with hard water. The US Geological Survey rates very hard water as that which has more than 180 mg of calcium carbonate in a single liter. Amarillo can go to 280 mg per liter, making it super hard. Hard water causes spots on dishes and helps to build soap scum on bathtubs and showers. This hard liquid can clog up shower heads and aerator faucets. Hard water can also dry out a person’s skin, is harsh on clothing, and can affect the taste of beverages like coffee and tea. This hard liquid can even build up scale in water heaters and boilers, driving up energy costs and shortening the life of the equipment. Another concern that many Panhandle homeowners have is bacteria in the supply. While most municipal systems treat for bacteria, that does not stop them from getting into the supply. What can you do about Panhandle water? With treatment systems such as softeners and reverse osmosis, you can enjoy softer, bacteria-free water.
