RO Membrane element  K-50 50gpd

This module is suitable only for filters Aquaphor Morion DWM-101, DWM-70, Aquaphor-OSMO-50K, DWM-41. Element WITH LOWER CONNECTING MEMBRANE's drainage!
Choose a new membrane carefully!

If you have an Aquaphor Morion DWM-101S *, you need a K-50S * membrane (top drainage)!

* S marking means that the drainage (water with impurities) is removed from the membrane module - upward, passes through the casing, and is drained into the sewer. In the previous model, DWM-101, drainage is removed from the bottom of the membrane module through a special drainage tube.

Reverse osmosis

Reverse osmosis is the purification of water using a reverse osmosis membrane. Water with this method of purification is passed through a membrane (a kind of “sieve”), the pores of which allow water to pass through, but do not let impurities dissolved in it (although the installation does not allow any impurities to pass — neither harmful nor useful).

The reverse osmosis system allows to obtain water of very high purity (close to distilled). Reverse osmosis can remove from the water even monovalent ions, for example, ions of sodium and chlorine.

Reverse osmosis plants must contain activated carbon, since the membrane itself does not inhibit low molecular weight highly volatile organics (such as chloroform) and bacteria.

The quality of water filtered by such an installation is stable.

However, this method has a number of disadvantages:

firstly, reverse osmosis plants are very expensive (cost - from $ 100 and up);
secondly, they have, as a rule, low productivity (20-25 liters per day), and therefore in some cases require the installation of a storage tank;
thirdly, the water in front of the reverse osmosis membrane must necessarily undergo a thorough mechanical filtration;
fourth, the water after such treatment becomes “too clean” and does not contain the trace elements necessary for the body, which requires their addition to the water after filtration;
fifth, when the reverse osmosis system is operating, up to 50-75% of the treated water is discharged into the drainage. At the exit, the user receives only 25-30% of water. True, the water is very well purified.
