Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Systems are a great means of providing purified drinking water on tap. One way to ensure years of great tasting water is to sanitize the system when changing the filters.
When a Reverse Osmosis Drinking water system is not properly cared for, bacteria begins to grow and multiply wherever the water sits, including inside R.O. tanks and hoses. This bacteria can grow even on chlorinated supplies as some of the R.O. filters remove chlorine and chlorine will dissipate over time and lose their effectiveness.
At Charger, we carry the Pro Products Sani-System sanitizer packets. The Sani-System Liquid Sanitizer Concentrate is the only EPA and NSF approved sanitizer for use in reverse osmosis systems. It is proven to kill 99.9% of harmful bacteria without the use of chlorine, oxidizers or acids that can harm the system. When used as directed, Sani-System kills bacteria such as Staph and e coli. It eliminates odors and sanitizes tanks lines and faucets.
