Frequently Asked Questions

Water is a pure product that is contaminated by natural and manmade chemicals. These chemicals can be eliminated by careful and progressive filtration to revive the pure product. Although some chemicals are essential for health and wellbeing (e.g. minerals) we believe that eliminating the unwanted contaminants through selective filtration gives a desirable and refreshing product essential for our survival

frequently asked questions
what is reverse osmosis

Reverse Osmosis Technology

Assume a membrane is semipermeable allowing water to pass through while being closed to dissolved salts. Place a membrane between two compartments in a container. Then place a salt solution in one half of the container and pure water in the other half. Now a fundamental scientific principle comes into play. The two different concentrations of liquids will try to reach equilibrium on both sides of the membrane. The only way for this to occur is for the pure water to pass through the membrane to the salt-water side in an attempting to gain equilibrium. This is called osmosis. Reverse Osmosis is the reversal of the natural flow of osmosis. It is a technology where the goal is not to dilute the salt solution but separate the pure water from the salt and other unwanted contaminants. When the natural osmotic flow is reversed, water from the salt solution is forced through the membrane in the opposite direction by application of pressure and consequently the term REVERSE OSMOSIS has been created.

FAQ

QuestionsAnswers
What does a carbon cartridge do?Carbon provides the means to improve the taste and odour of water.
Do carbon cartridges vary in specification? Yes. Care needs to be exercised in selection of raw material i.e., vegetable and mineral and the physical properties of the carbon i.e., particle size, moisture content, hardness etc.
What is the difference between ordinary filtration and reverse osmosis technology? Reverse osmosis (RO) will reduce approximately 95% of dissolved minerals and salts.
What is the difference between distilled and deionised water? Distilled water is that which has been condensed from steam leaving all impurities behind. Deionised water has all ions removed.
Should a doctor be consulted before selection of a water treatment system for either home or the workplace environment? This practice is advisable if allergies are known.
Why should water filter cartridges be changed? Chlorine is injected into most municipal water supplies to control micro bacteria. Aqualife’s carefully considered opinion is that cartridges should be changed every 12 months because of the reduction in the level of chlorine in the treated water.
Does ordinary filtration remove fluoride? No. Fluoride is a dissolved heavy metal where reverse osmosis is the most secure method of reduction.
What does micron rating mean? Micron rating is the pore size which separates suspended solids.
Does micron rating have any impact on the chemical analysis of treated water? No.
Does Aqualife support its range of products in after sales service?Yes. This essential service is provided either directly by the company using our free call 1800 623 887 or through a carefully selected range of approved and authorised distributors or agents across Australia and the South Pacific.
