ANSWER: I do not sell or service machines like this because where I am, the drinking water is perfectly safe to drink right out of the faucet.  This is true for city water or well water.

If your in the market, do not even consider magnetic filters.  They do nothing.  Reverse Osmosis does a fine job of removing 90% plus, but also lowers the PH of the water considerably.  Distillers remove everything but the H2O but cost a bit to run.  I wouldn't even consider batteries for a distiller because the water has to be boiled and that would take a great amount of heat not available with small batteries.

RO's only work efficiently when the water pressure is upped to around 160 psi, which means running a high pressure pump which would also drain a small battery in short order.

Regarding point 3, If Water is high contaminated which is a better product among the two?. Electrical or non electrical?.

ANSWER: Definitely electrical.  Inline filters are practically useless.  Pressure is needed to make an RO work good and electricity is needed as it is for Distilled water.  The water is boiled and dropped into another canister in the device while all the contaminants are left behind in the first canister.  Just like rain water.  Only the water is turned into a vapor and lifted up into a cloud.

You would need a pump of some kind to get the water from the well into a pressure tank then into the purifier.  If your looking at a whole house type of filter, a cistern would be needed to contain the processed water.  Here we have a few salt water wells and people use RO to eliminate the salt.  Seems to work quite well.

I am a Water Well Driller and Water Pump technician. I own a business in Riverview, Fl. We repair motors and pumps in shop and in the field. We repair and replace submersible and jet pumps, galvanized and bladder tanks, and their controls. Water filtration is another one of our specialties.


I started drilling and repairing wells and pumps with my dad in 1958 at the age of 13 years. I worked with him on weekends and in the summer when not in school. After graduating high school, I worked for my Dad until going into the Army in 1968. I spent three years in the Army then went back into the Well Drilling/Repair field.

Many Forums including my own.

High school and a few courses after getting out of the Army. They were offered on the GI Bill.
