Everpure has developed a reverse osmosis (RO) system which reportedly produces significantly less water waste than other systems.
With conventional RO systems, nearly four gallons of water go to drain for every gallon of pure product quality water produced, the company claims. The MRS-Envi-RO however, can produce up to four gallons of pure product water for every one gallon of water going to drain.
This is due to a patent-pending dual headed pump that eliminates membrane back pressure, ensuring constant and effective permeate water production. In contrast, the single headed pumps used in conventional RO systems have to fight the back pressure imposed by downstream storage tanks.
The system can produce up to 600 gallons of pure RO water per day and has a flow rate of up to 0.7 gpm.
