Reverse Osmosis Systems -Kitchen

We offer a range of reverse osmosis systems for point-of-use (POU) applications. In addition, we also supply replacement membranes and replacement filters. Our water filtration and purification systems are independently tested and certified by the NSF.

All our membranes are high-quality Dow Filmtec membranes manufactured in the US. The reverse osmosis systems come as complete units and are easy to install requiring less than one hour for complete installation. We also offer modern design leading edge countertop RO systems that can dispense water into a removable receptacle that can be taken anywhere.

These systems require no installation other than connecting the water supply to the kitchen faucet. Using your own water purification system, instead of bottled water, can save you a lot of money.

Just make your own great-tasting chlorine and fluoride-free water and save heaps!
We also offer portable Reverse Osmosis Systems that can be used at home, in the office and anywhere you go. They simply connect to the kitchen faucet in a few minutes.

Buyer Beware: Be careful of water filter companies that promise you outrageous waste: pure water ratios of 1:1

The average cost of a litre of tap water in Australia is $0.003 (2012/2013)

The average cost of a litre of bottled water in Australia is $2.83

The variable cost of producing RO water is around $0.010 per litre. If you replace 1 litre of bottled water per day with 1 litre of RO water, your saving would be saving $1029 per year!

Australians drank 115 Olympic swimming pools worth of bottled water in 2014.

Reverse Osmosis Systems for Point-of-Use Applications

Removes Fluoride, Chlorine and Chloramines!
Reverse osmosis membrane filtration technology works by forcing water under pressure through the very tiny pores of a semi-permeable membrane. Modern reverse osmosis units for the home combine membrane technology with carbon and mechanical filtration to produce highly purified, great-tasting water. Our reverse osmosis systems include world-class dow thin film composite membranes, considered the best technology for residential and commercial applications.  Reverse osmosis is among the most effective technologies for removing perfluorochemicals (PFCs), trace pharmaceuticals and disease-causing bacteria and viruses from drinking water. The Dow membranes are manufactured in the USA.

In modern home units’ water, driven by normal city water pressure, flows first through a carbon pre-filter, which removes organic contaminants including chlorine and its by-products. The water pressure should be between 300 to 400 kPa.

Next, it enters the reverse osmosis membrane, a very tight, sheet-like filter, that allows water to pass but rejects dissolved solids like sodium and impurities like lead and arsenic, as well as fluoride. Some of the water entering the unit is used to cleanse the membrane surface and flows to the kitchen drain pipes.

The purified water is stored in a small storage tank until it is needed. When the ledge faucet mounted on the sink is opened, the purified water is forced by air pressure through another carbon filter, which gives it a final polish and from there to the ledge faucet. The reverse osmosis systems are available as either Direct Flow units or come with a NSF-certified food-grade water storage tank. The Direct Flow units available at capacities up to 800 GPD are ideally suited in situations, where there is limited space.

Pacific Water Technology offers the most popular brands incorporating leading-edge technology like the patented non-electrical booster pump making our units the most efficient reverse osmosis systems in the market. All our systems include all parts for installation. For low water pressures, we also offer Reverse Osmosis Systems with pressure boosters (either electrical or non-electrical boosting technology).

Replacement RO Membranes - Dow Filmtec

Removes Fluoride!
Available from 50 to 200 gallons per day replacements for most residential and commercial reverse osmosis systems. Reverse osmosis is among the most effective technologies for removing perfluorochemicals (PFCs), trace pharmaceuticals and disease-causing bacteria and viruses from drinking water.

The DOW FILMTEC elements help remove contaminants that can lead to health risks and reduce impurities such as calcium, magnesium, and iron. With a stabilised salt rejection rate of 99 percent at 75 GPD and 98 percent at 100 gallons per day, in standard sizes (1812 configuration), DOW FILMTEC BW-60-1812-75 and TW30-1812-100HR home drinking water elements offer premium water – faster. The new 75 GPD membrane uses new Dow membrane chemistries which have been customised to maximize element performance. The 75 and 100 GPD elements offer a balance of flow and high rejection, producing more water with 20 percent higher flow rates at standard test conditions.

DOW FILMTEC residential elements feature longer lifetimes that can potentially reduce operating costs for OEMs and brand owners, as well as National Safety Foundation (NSF) safety certification and the ability for NSF data transfer to help reduce certification costs.

DOW FILMTEC RO elements are manufactured in an ISO-certified facility in the United States. They are NSF/ANSI 58 listed for material safety requirements, which means their safety and performance have been evaluated by NSF International, the leading global provider of public health and safety risk management solutions. NSF is an independent, not-for-profit organization that tests millions of consumers, commercial and industrial products around the world.

DOW FILMTEC reverse osmosis (RO) membranes for home drinking water treatment units are the most reliable and consistent elements in the industry. Advanced membrane technology and automated fabrication allow Dow to precisely produce each and every element to tight, pre-defined specifications. Dow’s advanced and consistent RO element quality helps customers deliver systems that reliably provide low-impurity drinking water. DOW FILMTEC elements are shipped dry for convenient handling and long shelf-life. The membranes should be used with activated carbon or carbon block pre-treatment. Post-carbon polishing of the purified water is also recommended.
