Drinking Water Systems

Contaminated water is a critical issue that poses severe threats to public health and the environment. It occurs when pollutants, such as chemicals, bacteria, heavy metals, or toxins, infiltrate the water supply. Consumption of contaminated water can lead to various health problems, including gastrointestinal illnesses, long-term diseases, and even fatalities.

Moreover, contaminated water impacts aquatic ecosystems, making it unsafe for aquatic life and disrupting the balance of the environment. Access to clean and safe drinking water is a fundamental human right, and addressing contaminated water problems is a global imperative to ensure the well-being of communities and the preservation of our natural resources.

Efforts to monitor, treat, and prevent water contamination are essential to safeguard our health, ecosystems, and the planet.

Drinking Water Filtration FAQ’s

Water Treatment Solutions
It’s important to note that no single filter or treatment process can effectively eliminate all contaminants. For instance, if your water contains silt and dirt, a combination of whole-house sediment filtration and a drinking water system may be necessary. In cases where testing reveals the presence of bacteria and viruses, an ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system might be the ideal solution. Point-of-use carbon filters or reverse osmosis systems are designed to work at your kitchen tap, typically installed under the sink. These systems effectively remove contaminants such as arsenic, lead, and nitrates. With the right drinking water system and filters in place, you can confidently consume your well water, knowing it’s clean and safe for drinking.
Understanding Municipal Water Quality
Municipal water supplies are sourced from wells, rivers, lakes, or other water sources. Public water suppliers are obligated to adhere to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards and issue an annual water quality report to their customers. During the treatment process, chlorine is added to ensure the water is safe for consumption. Nevertheless, municipal water supplies are not immune to contamination. Errors during the treatment process can affect chlorine levels in the water supply. Contaminants may enter the water system through deteriorating pipes, and sewage releases during floods can contaminate municipal water sources.
Addressing Forever Chemicals In Your Drinking Water
Per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), often referred to as “forever chemicals,” are a growing concern in both municipal and well water supplies. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), PFAS do not break down in the environment and can accumulate in fish, making their way into soil and contaminating drinking water sources. The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) suggests that elevated levels of certain PFAS may lead to increased cholesterol, changes in liver enzymes, an elevated risk of kidney cancer, and other health issues. Our experts at Mid-Atlantic Water Services can enhance the protection of your city water supply by installing a drinking water system in your Annapolis residence.

Reverse Osmosis FAQ’s

What is Reverse Osmosis

Reverse osmosis (RO) systems stand out as highly efficient and cost-effective solutions for obtaining clean, great-tasting water. Let’s delve into the world of reverse osmosis, explore its benefits, and understand how this innovative process operates.

In essence, reverse osmosis works by exerting a high-pressure force to propel water molecules through a thin, semi-permeable membrane. During this journey, contaminants and pollutants are trapped within the membrane’s pores, allowing only pure water to flow into a storage tank for future use.

How Do Reverse Osmosis Systems Function

A typical reverse osmosis system comprises pre-filters and post-filters flanking the membrane. These filters play a crucial role in ensuring the water reaching your faucet is clean and delicious. The reverse osmosis process unfolds in a few straightforward steps:

1. Carbon and sediment filters remove larger pollutants.

  • Carbon filter: reduces chlorine, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), and other substances that could harm the RO membrane.
  • Sediment filter: eliminates dirt, sand, and other particles that may clog the RO system.

2. Then, the water passes through the reverse osmosis membrane, effectively removing smaller pollutants, which are flushed down the drain.

3. The purified water is directed into a storage tank, where it is stored until required. Most storage tanks hold between 2 to 4 gallons.

4. Before reaching your faucet, the clean water undergoes a final post-filtering process to ensure any remaining tastes or odors are removed.

Rather than waiting for reverse osmosis filtration each time you turn on the tap, the storage tank allows you to access clean, delicious water instantly.

What are the advantages of RO

Reverse osmosis offers numerous benefits for you, your family, or your business, making it an exceptional choice:


Reverse osmosis efficiently reduces contaminants such as bacteria, nitrates, pesticides, lead, chlorine, and various chemicals.


RO systems remove approximately 97% of total dissolved solids (TDS), including salt and sodium.


Reverse osmosis not only purifies water but also eliminates undesirable tastes and odors, making it comparable to bottled water.


With proper care, RO water filter systems can last for 10-15 years. Regular maintenance, involving the replacement of pre- and post-filters every 12-18 months and the RO membrane every 2-4 years (based on water quality and usage), ensures longevity.


Despite its perceived size, a reverse osmosis system is relatively compact, fitting comfortably beneath most kitchen sinks.


Once installed, reverse osmosis requires minimal effort, apart from regular maintenance. This technology is versatile and suitable for various settings, from homes to commercial establishments.


RO systems save money on bottled water and utility expenses while providing clean, safe water.


An RO water treatment system ensures cleaner, safer water for drinking, cooking, and pet care.
