What is Reverse Osmosis Filtration?

Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a water purification process that uses a semi-permeable membrane (synthetic lining) to filter out unwanted molecules and large particles, also known as Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), such as contaminants and sediments like chlorine, salt, and dirt from drinking water. In addition to removing contaminants and sediments, reverse osmosis can also remove microorganisms like viruses, bacteria, and algae – which you certainly do not want to drink. It gets water clean down to a molecular level, leaving only pure H2O behind.

Water with high levels of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) often appear cloudy and can have “off” tastes and odors. Quench recommends reverse osmosis filtration for customers who rely on well water or have tap water with TDS levels of 400 parts per million (ppm) or higher. Reverse osmosis filtration technology is standard on the Quench 810 and optional on all other bottleless water coolers. All reverse osmosis equipped water dispensers require a drain line.

Why Use Reverse Osmosis Filtration?

Reverse osmosis differs from carbon filtration in that it can rid the water of up to 99.9% of all contaminants and sediments, or particles as small as .001 micron, whereas carbon filtration can only remove particles as small as 1 micron. Your local tap water could be award-worthy clean when it leaves the municipal plant but as it travels miles from the plant to your glass it could pick up a host of contaminants or it may have a naturally high number of TDS in the water, so it would be best to get a reverse osmosis filtration system to safeguard that your water is contaminant-free.

Get Reverse Osmosis Filtration with quenchWATER+

quenchWATER+ is our Quench branded mineral-infused drinking water. quenchWATER+ is filtered on demand through our proprietary 5-filter setup. Our filtration process produces the cleanest drinking water through our reverse osmosis system, but this process also removes beneficial minerals that can be naturally occurring in the water. To create quenchWATER+, we have added the Mineral+ filter to the filtration process. The pure water passes over compressed minerals in our Mineral+ filter to add back a blend of calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, and other healthy minerals to create alkaline and electrolyte-enhanced water, promoting faster and longer-lasting hydration.

Quench currently offers quenchWATER+ in our Q series machines, the Quench Q7 and Q5. Both machine series provide an uninterrupted quenchWATER+ refreshment throughout the day and offer advanced sanitization technology, including LED ultraviolet light and antimicrobial surface protection, to maintain water quality. Quench Q7 and Q5 tall ergonomic “no-bend” dispensing freestanding designs allows the quenchWATER+ system to be installed directly inside the base of the machine, creating a completely closed system.

Get quenchWATER+ to drink clean, feel hydrated, and save the environment. Visit our website to learn more about quenchWATER+ and check out our Q7 and Q5 product pages to see which Quench water cooler is right for you!
