SWT BioMaster Reverse Osmosis System
 
A maintained BioMaster™ Drinking Water System means you will never have to worry again about the quality of your water supply.
Each unit includes all hardware necessary for installation.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
SWT Residential RO Systems Guide
FEATURES INCLUDE:
Sediment filtration to remove particulate matter (grit, sand, sludge, silt, etc).
A special heavy metal pre-filter cartridge designed to extend the life of the RO membrane (a unique SWT design feature).
Heavy metal filtration (lead, iron, zinc, etc).
Pre- and post-carbon filtration for the removal of chlorine, taste, odor, color, pesticides, and a whole list of chemical compounds deemed unhealthy by the EPA (see list below).
A reverse osmosis membrane for ultra-fine (molecular) filtration. Primary agents filtered are sodium, nitrates, lead, fluoride, cryptosporidium, cysts, iron, copper, mercury, and arsenic. The RO element in the BioMaster™ will remove 93% to 99+% of these and other compounds (see list below).
An ultraviolet disinfecting chamber that sterilizes viruses, bacteria, mold, algae, and other harmful microorganism (see list below).

After the water has been filtered down to a sub-micron level, the water then enters an ultraviolet sterilization chamber where any viruses, bacteria, mold, and other living microorganisms are bombarded with special, intense light of a specific wavelength. The UV light penetrates the wall of the organisms and attacks their DNA structure leaving the organism unable to reproduce (or “dead”). UV technology is recognized by the EPA as one of four approved methods of sterilizing water, and is preferable over the other three methods (chlorine, iodine, and distillation) due to the cost of treatment and effectiveness of UV (UV works almost instantaneously, leaving no residuals or chemicals in the water). The SWT BioMaster™ UV module operates for a full year at 30,000 microwatt seconds/cm². As a point of reference, the table below is a list of common bacteria and viruses, and the dosage required to render them harmless.

GENERAL INSTALLATION AND SERVICE PARAMETERS
SWT’s BioMaster™ will work at peak efficiency on either municipal or ground water supplies that do not exceed the following:
Maximum psi
TDS
Iron
Hardness
Hydrogen Sulfide
Manganese
125 lbs.
1800 ppm
0.4 ppm
17 gr/gal
0.05 ppm
0.1 ppm
      
The SWT BioMaster™ RO System has been designed to give many years of trouble free service. To keep the system operating in peak efficiency, it is recommended that the unit be inspected every six months for possible prefilter sediment clogging (especially if there is a lot of sediment in the water supply). The manufacturer recommends that the system be serviced on an annual basis to replace the carbon filtration modules and the RO membrane module.*

* The RO membrane module may last for a much longer period of time on relatively good water. Check with your Water Treatment Professional for local water characteristics and testing.
