Water Logic ensures Pure drinking water through technology Like RO Plants

Simple tips to save water every day

What should you consider before using reverse osmosis wastewater?

Before you decide to reuse water for other purposes, it is a good idea to determine the TDS level of the water you are discharging.

If the TDS level of RO wastewater is too high, it cannot be reused for most of the applications listed below.

How to check the TDS level of the water?

To be 100% safe, wastewater must be tested for inorganic and chemical contaminants such as sodium.

Some websites and many YouTube videos recommend checking the pH level of RO wastewater in addition to the TDS level. However, there should be little difference between the pH of the feed water and RO effluent. Therefore, you do not need to worry about the RO wastewater pH.

How is RO waste water stored?

The easiest way would be to throw the discarded pipe into a bucket. However, if the daily demand for drinking water is 20 litres, a reverse osmosis water purifier will, on average, produce about 60 litres of waste water.

Assuming you use a 15 litre bucket, you will need to empty it four times a day. And the hardest part is keeping an eye on the bucket so it doesn’t spill.

For many users, this may not be practical.

If you’re one of them, don’t worry, because we have a better solution for people like you.

You can extend the wastewater pipe by reverse osmosis and run it through a large tank outside the kitchen. This stored water can then be reused in the ways listed below.

You can use a small submersible pump (such as those used in water coolers) to pump water from this tank. Simply insert the submersible pump into the tank and connect it to the power supply.

You can then use the water hose connected to the pump outlet to pump water from the tank without using a bucket or reservoir. A larger tank also means you don’t have to worry about overflowing water, as you would if you used a bucket instead of a large tank.

The bucket, tank or reservoir used to store waste water through RO must be large enough to hold the water.
