What are the pros and cons of drinking RO or Reverse Osmosis filtered water?

Updated: Jun 1, 2021

Reverse Osmosis, generally referred to as RO, is a mechanism in which water is demineralized or deionized by moving it through a semi-permeable Reverse Osmosis Membrane under pressure.

Let us discuss the advantages and disadvantages of consuming RO (Reverse Osmosis) purified water.


1. Excellent Water: RO technology can eliminate 95 to 99 percent of total dissolved solids (TDS), as well as chlorine taste and odor, from water.

2. Better-tasting food: Many people have noticed that cooking with reverse osmosis water improves the flavor of almost any meal. To enrich a soup or a hot beverage, nothing beats utilizing clean, impurity-free water. It's no surprise that most restaurants now cook using RO filtered water.

3. Drink water instead of cola: An RO system may provide great-tasting water for drinking and cooking. Water is the healthiest drink for our bodies, and many families with children have discovered that after installing a RO drinking water system, they are drinking more water instead of sugary beverages and sodas.

4. Low cost: A reverse osmosis system may create tasty water for pennies per liter, which can save you money over bottled water, not to mention the convenience of having it at your kitchen tap.


1. Slow Process: Reverse Osmosis takes time since it uses home water pressure to force tap water through a semi-permeable membrane. You must give time for the RO process to replenish the holding tank if you require a large amount of filtered water at once and empty the system's holding tank.

2. Clogging: An RO system's tiny pores can get blocked, necessitating frequent maintenance. An RO system can be harmed by even ordinary chlorine. As a result, many reverse osmosis system owners either purchase a pre-filter to prevent the RO unit from fouling or couple it with a whole-house conditioner in order to maintain their system.

3. Maintenance: After you've purchased and installed the system, you may get water for pennies per liter. However, the cost of frequent filter replacements and maintenance is ongoing. Despite the fact that RO systems are almost maintenance-free, they should be cleaned and disinfected once a year.

Despite the drawbacks of RO, crores of homeowners have chosen RO drinking water systems for their homes because they believe the benefits exceed the drawbacks.
