Galway Water Solutions, guarantee best price, quality, reliability and factory warranty of reverse osmosis systems supplied DIY or supplied and installed, or as part of a reverse osmosis discount package with a water softener in Ireland.
We have extended our reverse osmosis filter range to include reverse osmosis systems with the lowest running costs and easiest servicing, with the longest manufacturer warranties from the longest established and largest manufacturers.
The highly reliable, US made Clack manifold Microline reverse osmosis and the European Aquaphor Morion 50B reverse osmosis systems both with 5 year manufacturer warranties are supplied at the best reverse osmosis system prices and lowest running costs. These are the longest domestic RO manufacturer warranties officially available for water treatment products.
Reverse osmosis has the longest track record for offering safe domestic drinking water in the hyper-filtration range of a ten millionth of a millimetre particle removal size (0.00000001 mm). Most common filter cartridge systems employ conventional filters with particle removal in the order of 0.02 - 0.001 mm or 20 micron to 1 micron, as opposed to the RO 10,000th of a micron filtering ability.
Reverse osmosis purification systems employ a mixture of pre-filter cartridges and cross flow membranes with multiple filter stage combinations. We supply a range of reverse osmosis systems that are none electric yet covering common water pressures.
Also now available in the Aquaphor range are RO systems with 6 to 10 levels of filtration, yet using fewer combined cartridge stages, half the water usage, lower servicing costs and potentially saving €30 to €50 euros extra each year in electric costs in addition to water savings and filter cartridge savings.
Aquaphor are the only company in the world to offer none electric, wide pressure range RO, with additional ultrafiltration and multiple silver carbon high capacity cartridges.
Galway Water Solutions are the only company to have range of reliable, 5 year factory warranty, highly specified reverse osmosis filter systems bought direct from from both of the leading RO manufacturers. We import, distribute and install reverse osmosis manifold filter systems and twist lock cartridge reverse osmosis systems.
reverse osmosis history and current trends
In 1959, UCLA in California developed reverse osmosis (ro) with the first plant producing 22 m3 per day in 1965. This industry is now the fastest growing form of sea recovery desalination and has 3,000 large reverse osmosis plants, each producing 4,000 cubic meters (4 million litres) of drinking water daily from a total of more than 12,000 municipal pressure driven desalination plants - 30% of global desalination, producing more than 40 billion litres per day.
With the growth of world population and the need for fresh water supplies becoming more acute, and the technology of reverse osmosis greatly improving with reduced unit costs, the numbers of municipal reverse osmosis plants are rapidly accelerating, with significant improvements being monitored for ideal water balance. The trend of municipal reverse osmosis has been followed by organisations such as the World Health Organisation, and their report out later this year gives major backing to the benefits that large and small scale RO plants offer for the future in a world of ever diminishing natural fresh water resources, where access to infinite sea water and inland water sources has major untapped potential. Reverse osmosis is quickly becoming the way to solve many of the world's water shortage problems.
Reverse osmosis has been commonly used for domestic ‘point of use filtration’ for high quality water since the 1960's. Typical domestic reverse osmosis systems based on 95% mineral extraction and 99.9% heavy metal extraction, allow plenty of mineral balance, for example at levels of 20 ppm on incoming water hardness of 400 ppm. Many of the biggest selling brands of bottled water quote chemical analysis on bottle labels as being under 20 ppm of calcium.
As bottled water can be 1000 times the cost per litre of municipal tap water and has massive carbon foot print and land fill concerns, the technology of reverse osmosis using chlorinated / fluoridated tap water or suitable borehole well water feed sources, filter these to exceptional levels of quality and safety, yet without the carbon footprint concerns and with costs between one tenth to one twentieth the cost of bottled water. Domestic and commercial reverse osmosis has been in use for over 3 decades and is the fastest growing acceptable, safe water technology.
Reverse osmosis systems are the only domestic filter systems able to remove impurities at the hyper-filtration range. Properly specified reverse osmosis systems provide chlorine removal at over 99% and the efficient removal of sodium, toxic metals, nitrates, fluoride, cryptosporidium, bacteria and an extensive list of harmful parameters found in water.
RO systems can deliver minerals above 20 ppm without modification depending on original water hardness and can raise mineral content to levels ten times or more above this using special cartridges which are rarely if ever required.
Reverse osmosis pre-filters are changed every 1 to 2 years, membranes last from 3 to 5 years depending on the water used and can be tested at anytime for performance.
There is a full list of water softeners, iron and manganese water filters, odour and colour removal water filters, grit and turbidity removal water filters, ultra violet sterilisers, reverse osmosis water filters and other specialist water treatment equipment in our pdf brochures on the home page.
