The Pura Vida Reverse Osmosis(RO)

Filtration Process

How RO Works
Reverse osmosis is a filtration system using various filters to first remove large particles and impurities, then contaminants, chemicals and biohazards in the water.

Types of filters

Types of filters used at Pura Vida Water:

  • Sand – removes larger particles
  • Carbon – removes contaminants (including arsenic, chlorine, copper, lead, nitrates and pesticides.
  • Salt and Resin – acts as a water softener.
  • Pre-Filter – screens impurities down to 5 microns in size (A micron is a unit of length equal to one millionth of a meter)
  • Cellophane – like RO Membrane screens out impurities down to 0001 microns in size.
  • UV Light – converts some of oxygen into ozone to get rid of any remaining impurities and viruses.
  • Ozone Generator – pumps and introduces more ozone into the water.

The result is crystal clear, healthy and safe drinking water for life.

What`s Wrong With Chlorine?

Chlorine is the most common addictive used to kill microscopic living bacteria and microbes in water, and has  greatly reduced  the number of water-born illnesses and deaths worldwide

However, overtime research has linked and drinking and bathing in chlorinated water to several cancers, asthma and heart disease. It also leaves behind an odour and bad taste in water and if pipes accumulate with biofilm, it becomes Less effective.

There is a very real long-term hazard to drinking and cooking with chlorinated water. Many cities around the world now disinfect water supplies with ozone and UV Light instead of chlorine for public safety. Carbon Filtration removes the Chlorine in addition to other harmful contaminants, and is part of the Pura Vida Water RO System.

We use a combination of  Filters, UV Light And Ozone, giving you a crystal clear, healthy and safe drinking water for life.

What is Ozone?

03= Ozone
3=3 oxygen atoms that compose ozone

The 3rd atom is weak, and binds with other organic substances (bacteria and viruses) and oxidezes them(gets rid of them).
When Ozone disinfects or breaks down harmful bacteria or pollutants, there are generally no byproducts, unlike most disinfecting agents.

Ozone degrades to regular oxygen, leaving no harmful residual in the water and is much more effective than chlorine.
Ozone treated = disinfected and pure. It is cleaner, clearer and safer drinking water, and improves overall water quality.
