I often hear people say that they like their reverse osmosis system and therefore are not interested in the Nikken PiMag Waterfall. If they only knew what they were actually getting, and not getting, from their reverse osmosis water filter.
From an environmental standpoint, the biggest problem with a reverse osmosis water filtration system is that it is very wasteful. For reverse osmosis to work you need a lot of water pressure. Commercial systems can end up flushing 30% or more of the water down the drain. Household systems, where the water pressure is usually much less, can flush up to 90% of the water that enters the system. That means that it can take up to 10 gallons of water to get 1 gallon of clean drinking water from a reverse osmosis water filter.
From a health perspective, the problem with reverse osmosis is that the resulting water is acidic. How is that possible when water is pretty much the definition of neutral on the pH scale? A reverse osmosis system creates very clean water, there is no denying that. The problem is that water wants to dissolve things, so this super clean water immediately pulls carbon dioxide from the air and becomes acidic. If you don’t believe me, get a litmus test strip and check it for yourself. I was shocked when I did it.
For most people, the concern they have with their water is what went into the water at the local water “treatment” facility. In other words, they want to remove the chlorine and other chemicals that were put into the water, and they should because the chlorine was put there to kill things and it doesn’t stop killing just because it came out the faucet. It turns out that a good carbon filter is more than up to the task of removing these chemicals. Also, a carbon water filter system doesn’t waste all the water that a reverse osmosis system does.
What is so special about the PiMag Waterfall then? Check out the size of that carbon filter in the picture above. It is a lot bigger than those puny things that you can screw onto your kitchen faucet. It also has a large storage capacity and the mineral rocks in the bottom add minerals to the water to make sure it stays alkaline. And it doesn’t cost anywhere near as much as a lot of other systems.
A PiMag Waterfall Gravity Water Filter doesn’t have to be attached to a faucet or other water source. It is stand-alone and can be placed somewhere that is convenient for everyone.
