Does it remineralise the water and is the water acidic?
Question by: nextlev on 29 Dec 2018, 13:31
Great question, thank you. The final filter in the system contains calcium and magnesium active ceramic balls. They have the effect of adding around 20-30 ppm in total to remineralise the water. Reverse osmosis as a process does not affect the pH (hydrogen ion), however because of the purity of the water CO2 is dissolved from contact with the air as soon as the water is purified which forms carbonic acid. You can observe using a digital pH meter the pH slowly falling as a glass is left standing over a few minutes. The remineralisation ionises the water to counteract the carbonic acid, however the resulting pH entirely depends on the level of CO2 in the water as well as in the air (so depending on how long the glass is left out). When you drink the water, as soon as this reaches your stomach, containing hydrochloric acid of pH 2.0, whatever the pH of the water you drink, it becomes acidic straight away, we focus on the purity, the alkalinity (not measured by pH but by the mg/l of mineral content). We also recommend to use this water from our machine with the Osmio Hydrogen Water Bottle to free hydrogen around 1-1.5 mg/l in order to further enhance the health benefits of drinking water. Please do give us a call if you would like any further advice.

Hi, can you use different qualities of water or river, pond etc like the gravity filters or just tap water, and can it only be used with electricity or can the cold water option be used without electricity? Many thanks
Question by: Emiy on 3 Jan 2019, 17:59
Hi Emily, this system needs to use power and also water which is microbiologically safe. The reason for that is because if the bacteria multiplies in the membrane then that filter stops working and will let a high level of TDS (total dissolved solids) through it.

Hi, could you please confirm what particles/substances are filtered and in what ratio - could you share any report? does the filtration capacity decrease with (filter) usage? Many thanks
Question by: Elisa Mendes on 29 Dec 2020, 09:13
Hi Elisa, we have not had this particular system put through any independent third-party testing which is what we are allowed to publish by the WQA guidelines. We have for the Osmio Clarity filters as these are 0.2 microns, instead, the Osmio Zero membrane is 0.001-0001 micron. So the tests we have done are with South East Water Labs normal portability analysis Schedule 10 parameters, so we know the levels it does and some parameters work more consistently over time, in short, gases can be less well filtered out as the carbon block ages, as it absorbs like a sponge. So it's important to change that every 6 months. Reverse osmosis and distillation are preferred to be the best ways to do water quality because it avoids having to test for most things, there being more than 20,000 we could test for.

Hi,
In the more information is says, "the system should be replaced after 5 years"
Can you explain why the system only lasts 5 years? Is it not serviceable?
5 years seems like a very short lifetime for a product costing this much.
Thanks.
Kind regards.
Question by: Tom on 7 Feb 2021, 12:10
Hi Tom, it's really more than that and all the parts of the Osmio Zero are available and the system is servicable, so the system could be refurbished after 5 years. It's normal for a reverse osmosis pump to last less than 10 years but these can be replaced and the system carry on. We often trade in 5-7 year old ones to be reconditioned to provide for resale on our ebay store which sells only used or graded items or we give them away to Charities.

Hello, the machine makes quite long and loud noise when filtering, especially at the end just before refilling, it lasts over 15 mins. Is it normal? thanks.
Question by: Meg on 8 Feb 2021, 09:18
Hi Megan,
This can happen when a filter in the supply pitcher is not pushed to the very bottom. Please check and re-install the filter in the supply pitcher,. If the problem still persists please get in touch with us via email info@osmiowater.co.uk or give us a call on 03301137181.

Does the Osmio Zero remove oestrogen from the water
Question by: Nina on 9 Feb 2021, 21:21
It is efficient for the reduction of hormones. The typical efficiency of Reverse Osmosis Membrane is - 93-96 %. This includes hormones.
Answer by: Irina Orlenko on 10 Feb 2021, 18:17
Hi Nina yes it does reduce to below detectable levels <0.1mg/l. In short, any filters that use activated carbon filters are capable of removing around 50% of estrogen-based on the type of cartridge. All distillers, reverse osmosis and some ceramic filters (such as Coldstream) are also an efficient solution when it comes to hormone reduction.

Hi there I just wondering If this filter consume a lot of power?
Question by: Bunsong Wongsatham on 7 Mar 2021, 01:34
Osmio Zero has an instant heating element, and the system only consumes high power when water is dispensed at 65C, 85C, or 100C. The system is very energy efficient, as it is heating water on a cup by cup basis. When filtering or dispensing ambient water - it is consuming very little.
Answer by: Irina Orlenko on 10 Mar 2021, 17:37
Hi,

Does the Osmio machines give warnings when the filters need to be changed or would I need to automatically change them every 6 months?

Many thanks
Claire
Question by: Claire Keogh on 13 Mar 2021, 10:58
Hello,
The system will give a warning if filters are blocked or exhausted.
We recommend changing filters every 6 months. We will send the filter remainder to the email used to place the order.

Is the calcium/magnesium remineralisation filter compulsory, or will the system work without it inserted?
Question by: Sue J on 1 May 2021, 16:39
you can replace the post filter with an empty one from the sanitization kit.

You mention the OSMIO is BPA free, does the heated water, once filtered go through plastic tubing that could add phthalates or other PFA's to the water ?

Is the internal tubing metal or plastic ?
Question by: Stephen Locke on 10 May 2021, 15:27
The filtered tank is made from virgin polypropylene. When water leaves the filtered water tank it goes through rare earth coated heating element and silicone tubing.
