Is a Water Ionizer Much Better than a Reverse Osmosis Unit?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On July 25, 2017 7:00 am

 
Reverse osmosis water units are important in survival situations or in war zones where the usual water infrastructure has broken down, for example.  The idea is that dirty water is pumped through a semi-permeable membrane, which removes salt, some bacteria and other contaminants.

Reverse Osmosis = dead water.

Will My Water Ionizer Work with Reverse Osmosis?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On October 25, 2016 7:00 am

We’ve written about Reverse Osmosis (RO) water here before, and truth be told, it hasn’t always been in exactly glowing terms.  In short, RO water is entirely free of vital minerals, so while it’s great in an emergency, drinking it frequently, over any significant period of time, can actually cause harm.

Reverse Osmosis water can be safe if used with an ionizer.

Reverse osmosis. It’s a fancy scientific term to describe a process of water purification, but most people probably don’t know what reverse osmosis (RO) actually is.

Ridiculous scientist with chemistry liquid

That, in itself, is an issue because without understanding the process it is difficult to see the disadvantages of reverse osmosis. After reading this, you will understand that reverse osmosis water is not safe for human consumption long term, nor for the environment.

Is Alkaline Water As Good For You As Reverse Osmosis Water?

A quick read about Reverse Osmosis water and it sounds great…the water is filtered to remove any of the bad stuff, and what splashes into your glass is pure and clean liquid refreshment.  Well yes, it is.  But that’s all it is.  It’s the watery equivalent of a wasteland.  No life, no minerals. But you could manage without them, maybe?  Take a supplement?

Tyent Water Ionizers vs Reverse Osmosis Part 2 (Version 2)

Posted by: acray On January 27, 2015 6:19 pm

Yesterday we looked at the way in which the process of Reverse Osmosis works to purify water.  In a nutshell, this is how RO works:  water is forced by pressure through a semi-permeable membrane that allows the water molecules to pass through but not larger molecules like iron, salts and minerals.

The final product is water that contains fewer impurities, but also has had all the important minerals and salts filtered out.

What is Reverse Osmosis Water and is it better than Tyent Ionized Alkaline Water?  That is an interesting question. We first need to describe what osmosis is before reversing it. 

Nope. Not learning by osmosis.
Nope. She’s not “learning by osmosis.”

Osmosis is a process that occurs naturally in the world.  When plant roots extract water from the ground or your kidneys extract water from the blood that is the natural process of osmosis.

Reverse osmosis or RO, is not a type of water.
