How It Works:
With years of expertise in the production of countertop reverse osmosis water treatment systems, Nature’s Sunshine has developed an improved Nature’s Spring RO device to meet the growing challenges facing our drinking water. This unit is still designed around a semi-permeable membrane that allows only pure water, oxygen and a small amount of minerals to pass through, while sending everything else down the drain. This technology has been used for decades to purify seawater into drinking water.
When combined with the purifying abilities of activated carbon, reverse osmosis is a proven method for making great-tasting, high-quality drinking water for your family.
The new and improved Nature’s Spring is a four-stage system that offers one unit for all city water systems and solid-block activated carbon in the pre- and post-filters. It also has a special timer with indicator lights so you know when to change the filters.
The four stages of the improved Nature’s Spring RO unit:
Stage One.Water first enters a 5-micron pre-filter that is 12 inches long. It removes any large sediment or debris that may damage the membrane. Stage Two. A solid-block, activated carbon filter (inside the sediment pre-filter) removes excess chlorine to protect the PA membrane and assists in removing chloramines. Stage Three. An efficient Polyamide (PA) reverse osmosis membrane produces purified, highly oxygenated drinking water. Reverse osmosis effectively reduces total dissolved solids, including fluoride, lead and cadmium. Stage Four. A 12-inch, solid-block, activated carbon filter removes traces of any pollutants while improving the taste.
This improved Nature’s Spring RO unit features snap-on use, with a yield of 35 gallons of pure drinking water per day. One unit works on all potable water supplies. It’s also easier to service.
Treated water must be stored for use. Remember, since chlorine is no longer in the water, it is susceptible to harboring germs from the air. Keep it covered and cool in a glass or polycarbonate container.
