Reverse Osmosis Systems
Reliable & high performance reverse osmosis filter systems
Water has unseen impurities in the form of bacteria, viruses, cysts, minerals, and other contaminants which make it unfit for drinking. Often the water is treated with fluoride and chlorine which removes most of these impurities leaving a noticeable taste and odour to the tap water. While it is a common problem for most households, it doesn’t make the most appealing way to quench your thirst.
With an increasing number of problems in drinking water reported in Ireland every year, it becomes essential to improve the water quality in your home.

Say No to Bottled Water
All plastic bottles have to go somewhere. But many types of plastic cannot be recycled, and takes years to decompose. Single-use plastic bottles often end up in landfills or ocean beds, thus damaging the environment.
You may be shocked to know Ireland is the top producer of plastic waste in Europe; generating an average of 61kgs per person every year – almost double what the UK produces.
Filtered water is a simple and effective way to begin eliminating single-use plastic from the environment. Using filtered water means that much less plastic ends up in landfills to pollute the planet and fewer fossil fuels are utilized in the production of plastic bottles.
Be the change and do your part to help the environment.
Savings from First Day
Buying bottled water is like pouring money down the drain. In fact it is nearly 2000 times the price of tap water.
Ditch the cost of buying single-use water bottles every week by switching to filtered water. Great tasting water from CWS reverse osmosis systems cost just 2c/litre which means you’ll be saving more than €600 every year on bottled water.
Filtering your drinking water with high-quality RO systems from Celtic Water Solutions can do more than save you hundreds of euros in bottled water costs, it can also guarantee pure, clean drinking water for you and your family.
Easy Maintenance and Service
Keep your drinking water system in top-notch condition by changing the filters periodically. That’s the only ongoing cost associated with an RO unit.
An average family of 4-6 members with average drinking water use can expect the filters to last approximately nine months to one year.
Our service team will contact you when your service falls due, so you never miss a service.

Frequently Asked Questions
Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that removes unwanted contaminants, solid substances, large molecules and other unwanted particles from water by using pressure to push it through a specialized membrane.
Installing a RO system delivers clean and filtered water straight from your kitchen tap. The semi-permeable membrane is designed to remove 99.9% of known contaminants from water. The additional filters remove odour and improve the taste of filtered water.
One of the biggest advantages of a reverse osmosis water filter filtration system is its efficiency. It is the best way to ensure clean and filtered water at a fraction of the cost of bottled water.
At CWS we provide an extensive range of reliable, highly specified reverse osmosis water filter systems. Reverse osmosis systems are used most commonly to purify drinking water by removing impurities that cause a bad taste, smell, or colour.
Reverse osmosis filtration systems employ a mixture of conventional cartridges and cross flow membranes with 3 to 5 filter cartridges combinations. They use a semi-permeable membrane which only allows water to pass through it and in the process eliminating all other contaminants.
Cross flow allows the membrane to continually clean itself off. As the fluid passes through the membrane, some of it continues downstream. This causes rejected and unwanted particles to be pushed away from the membrane.
RO requires a strong driving force to push the fluid through the membrane. Most reverse osmosis systems require a booster pump to force water through exceptionally small pore sizes in filter cartridges and membranes at high pressure. This ensures you only get pure drinking water.
Reverse osmosis systems remove dissolved minerals and metals such as aluminium, arsenic, barium, chlorine, chromium, copper, fluoride, magnesium, lead, mercury, nitrate, selenium, silver, sulphate and zinc.
They are also highly effective with microplastics, bad taste, colour and odour producing chemicals, particulates, total dissolved solids, turbidity and radium. When using appropriate active carbon pre-filtering (commonly included with most RO systems), additional treatment can also be provided for such volatile contaminants as benzene, MTBE, trichloroethylene, trihalomethanes (THMs) and radon.
This is probably the most common concern we hear from potential customers and rightly so. Excessive fluoride exposure has been linked to several health issues.
An RO system is highly effective in the removal of fluoride from water as fluoride molecules are larger than water molecules. Again, this effectiveness still depends on proper care and maintenance of the RO filter.
Reverse Osmosis technology is effective at filtering out most forms of bacteria such as cysts and cryptosporidium. However, it would not be able to remove E.Coli. If you draw water from a private source, it would be best to install a UV filter to remove bacteria.
As with all filtration systems, however, for RO to effectively remove bacteria, the filter must be replaced regularly and installed correctly.
The price for a reverse osmosis filter depends on many factors such as brand, size, type of RO system and number of filtration stages. You can expect to pay anything around €300 – €600 for a good quality filtration system. In most cases, this price includes the charges of installing the unit.
The filtration performance of cartridges decreases over time, which is why you must replace them as specified by the manufacturer. In general, most filter cartridges last 6 months but you may have to replace them sooner than the recommended replacement time depending on the quality of water in your home.
- Sediment Filter – Average life of 6 months
- Carbon Block Filter – Average life of 6 months
- Granulated Activated Carbon (GAC) Filter – Average life of 6 months
- RO Membrane – Average life of 12 months
- Taste/ Odour Filter – Average life of 6-12 months
Replacing all these filters should cost you anywhere between €90-€170 depending on the type of your RO system.
CWS offers annual servicing for your water filter which consists of the replacement of all filters on your unit by one of our experienced technicians. Our office will remind you whenever you are due for servicing.
If a reverse osmosis system is serviced and maintained as parts wear out (like the faucet and storage tank), the system can last easily for 10 to 15 years.
Reverse osmosis technology removes more than 95% of all the contaminants in water, including essential minerals present in drinking water. It can do so because their molecules are much larger than water molecules.
Our selection of reverse osmosis systems include systems with remineralizing filters which add back those healthy minerals which otherwise would have been lost in the filtration process.
In short, Yes. As RO water is free from harmful chemicals or impurities that may be hazardous to your baby’s health, it is safe to prepare baby’s formula using it.
Reverse osmosis works best on microbiologically safe water. In an event of a boil water notice, you may continue to drink water from RO if the water is contaminated by cryptosporidium. For any other bacteria such as E.coli, the safest thing to do is use a UV filter.
After a boil water notice, it is recommended to get your water filter sanitized as it prevents the spread of bacteria in the tank.
No, in fact, a water softener can help extend the life of the RO membrane. Calcium and magnesium (limescale) are two of the hardest minerals for the RO membrane to remove, and sodium (added to the water by the softener) is much easier on the membrane as it rejects 98% of all sodium in the water.
