The water is generally filtered with a 5-micron sediment pre-filter and is next filtered by a carbon block or granular activated carbon (GAC) filter (or both), before it is processed by the reverse osmosis membrane (the contaminants are literally separated from the water by the membrane and flushed down the drain). Next, the clean water is sent to a storage tank (typically 2-4 gallons in size) where it is available for use. Whenever water is called for, it passes through a post-filter of GAC to remove any unwanted tastes and is polished to an even higher quality. Most systems are also equipped with an automatic shut-off valve (ASOV), which stops the flow of water to the drain, when the tank is full.
Originally, RO systems were designed to fit under a kitchen sink, but in a new home that is not the only place where a RO system can be installed, nor is it the most practical place. There is limited space under a kitchen sink and the person who spends the most time in the kitchen dislikes having to give up storage space because of an RO system. Additionally, servicing a system under a sink is more difficult and and leaks are more common due to space constraints. Where else can an RO system be installed? It is very practical to install one in the basement, garage or utility room. This makes service easier and results in no loss of space under the sink.
