Bottled Water vs. Reverse Osmosis System

by Dr. Jonathan Doyle - Updated July 12, 2020
How come the bottled water is not better than RO? Waterdrop will tell you why.
Reverse osmosis systems have become a favorite option for many families—but can these systems actually filter out enough of the viruses, bacteria, and other harmful substances found in tap water? Can filtered water compare to the safety of bottled water?

Scientists say that the particle of viruses is about 0.02-0.25 micron in diameter, which means you want a filter membrane smaller than that to block the virus. The filter membrane in Waterdrop's reverse osmosis system has a pore size measuring around 0.0001 micrometer (0.1 nanometer). With such an extreme difference in size, the filter can strain out the virus with ease along with many other unwanted substances.
Surprisingly, research has shown that reverse osmosis systems do a better job at providing filtered water than some companies that bottle water. The National Resources Defense Council reported that a minimum of 25% of bottled water is just tap water.
That means you greatly increase your chances of getting purer water if you use a reverse osmosis system—but what about the cost? If you choose Waterdrop's RO system, you'll pay only thirty cents per day to have unlimited purified drinking water that is convenient and also consistent in taste.
Waterdrop is a well-known and professional water filtration brand in the U.S. market. The Waterdrop RO system has been tested and certified by NSF International against NSF/ANSI Standard 58. The Waterdrop RO system has passed 400+ chemical lab tests indicating that this system does not contain 400+ chemical substances such as bisphenol A, formaldehyde, benzene, lead, cadmium, and so on. By using RO filtration technology with a filtration accuracy of 0.0001 μm, the system can remove most of the contaminants in your tap water, including TDS, heavy metals, chemicals, bacteria, and viruses. Embedded with a variety of sensors, it displays the water quality, filter life, and TDS value in real-time.
