Re: Water Filter

Thanks, Mike.  I noticed that serious RO units go down to 0.5 microns, but I wasn't sure what was really necessary.

Nearly all dissolved compounds are much smaller than 2 microns. You need to get down to the angstrom level before dissolved compounds are removed. Such a filter will remove many parasites but won't affect your TDS or DOCs.
