Best alternative to reverse osmosis

The Premiere zero waste membrane water purification system (PS-PURUF) easily takes the place of outdated reverse osmosis and ultraviolet systems which can have significant waste water issues. The PS-PURUF has ZERO waste water- yep, ZERO! This is the perfect water filtration system for places with water use restrictions including California. There is significantly less space required and it works well under low pressure conditions.

What is Reverse Osmosis?

A reverse osmosis (RO) water purification system separates pure water from contaminated water by removing ions, molecules, and particulates from drinking water. A reverse osmosis system also improves the taste, odor, and look of drinking water. 

A reverse osmosis (RO) system provides:

  • Healthy, safe water. An RO system removes harmful contaminants including bacteria, viruses, agricultural run-off, (such as pesticides and fertilizers), dissolved metals (such as lead, arsenic and iron), perfluorocarbons, and trace pharmaceuticals.
  • Clear, refreshing water. Not only is RO water safe, it tastes great! Other water may be cloudy due to sediment and particles, but the reverse osmosis process removes these particles producing water you can truly see the difference in.
  • It’s economical. Forget a pitcher or faucet filter- these are cheap temporary solutions that do not deliver purified water and end up costing way more than a reverse osmosis in the long run.
