There are many filtration systems
you can choose for your aquarium, and reverse osmosis is one of them. In reverse osmosis, a membrane acts as a filter, trapping in unwanted ions and molecules from different chemicals present in the water. Reverse osmosis is an effective system that is known to effectively cleanse the water.
However, reverse osmosis only works well when the membrane is kept clean. This can be done if the membrane is consistently flushed out. The Reverse Osmosis System Flush Valve Kit from Pet Store
is used for that purpose.
The valve should be placed between the membrane's debris port and the system's flow restrictor. The result is a flow of water strong and high enough to wash away the collected dirt and salt from the membrane. Other unwanted particles are also washed out in the process, from the inside of the membrane and from its surface.
Flushing is recommended to be performed right before shutting down the reverse osmosis filter system. This is done when the valve is opened for around half a minute and the water source turned off.
The Reverse Osmosis System Flush Valve Kit is small but it sure does a lot in keeping your aquarium a healthy environment. A little enhancement goes a long way in effective filtration.
