Recently we have received several calls to install water filtration devices, more specifically Reverse Osmosis filters. This was curious to me since it seemed be more than usual. I have come to find out that Home Depot was running some kind of special on these devices.

There are a couple things one should know about Reverse Osmosis water filters. First is that they are extremely inefficient and have a ration of 3:1 meaning it takes 3 gallons of water to produce 1 gallon of filtered water. If you are installing this system for your entire house, be wary of the inflated water bill you are about to receive! The reverse osmosis system also requires an increase in water pressure since it takes so long to go through the filter.
