Filtered Water vs. Water Bottles

Which Choice Is Right for You?

If you were to choose between bottled water and filtered water, what would you pick? Most people enjoy the convenience and availability of plastic water bottles, while others have committed to filling their reusable water bottles with filtered water only. In recent years, “water bottle culture” has shifted to eco-friendliness, hence why people opt for filtered water in their reusable bottles. It saves plastic and money, has virtually no odor, and is considered a healthier option than plastic water bottles.

We want to make it clear that plastic water bottles contain filtered water, however, that water is not fresh. Before it gets in your hands, a plastic water bottle goes through packaging, shipping, stocking, and other processes, so it could be months old by the time you drink it. On the other hand, a water filter allows you to enjoy clean water as you go, guaranteeing freshness and better taste. A water filter is optimal not just for drinking water, but also cooking, beverages such as coffee, showers, cleaning needs, and more.

How Reverse Osmosis Works

Filtered water is achieved through a process called “reverse osmosis.” Reverse osmosis (RO) is a process that uses pressure to remove contaminants, substances, molecules, and impurities from water through specialized membranes. Unlike osmosis, which is a passive process, reverse osmosis occurs when external pressure is applied to a highly concentrated solute solution (i.e., salt) before passing through a membrane to a lower-concentrated solution. Then, the membrane filters out contaminants, minerals, substances, and other impurities, leaving you with freshwater.

With this in mind, RO can be used in water filtration systems in homes. RO systems offer pre-filtration, reverse osmosis, drainage, and storage. This is why countless homeowners opt for reverse osmosis systems to filter their water. These systems help remove things such as:

  • Salts
  • Particles
  • Colloids: Oil and fat-based molecules
  • Organic bacteria
  • Pyrogens: Protein-based substances produced by bacteria that cause fevers when they enter the human body

Absent these contaminants and impurities, reverse osmosis water can help minimize health risks such as high blood pressure, low fertility, skin problems, increased carcinogens, and more. We break down each of the four steps to give you a better idea of how reverse osmosis filters work:

  • Pre-filtration: Uses a high-pressure pump to pass feed water through several filters that function to trap sediment and mineral deposits flowing into the RO chamber.
  • Reverse osmosis: The feed water is then pushed through a semipermeable membrane, which allows certain substances to flow through but not others.
  • Draining: The RO system drains out the contaminants that passed through the filters at each stage.
  • Storage: The treated water is stored in a small tank.
