The Water Shed supplies reverse osmosis (RO) systems for residential, commercial & industrial applications.

Reverse osmosis is an ultra-fine, high pressure filtration system that gives you safe, potable, good-tasting drinking water. Purification is achieved by physically removing contaminants found in water such as uranium, arsenic, and bacteria.

The removal happens at the molecular level and is similar to the way the human body’s cells absorb water. The pores in the RO system membrane are so small, only the water molecules will pass through. Contaminant laden material is rejected (just like the human body rejects waste) and is sent to drain.


Single Faucet System: The Osmopure RO 100 Under-the-Counter Drinking Water System

This reverse osmosis drinking water appliance processes, stores, and dispenses extremely pure, high-quality water. This RO system contains the largest membrane on the market for an under-the-counter system. Under normal working conditions, your appliance will process approximately 100 US gallons of water per day. It has a compact design and features an automatic shut off.

When used for all your drinking and cooking water needs, it improves the flavour of your beverages and food. It can also be used for watering house plants, in steam irons and humidifiers, and cleaning contact lenses, in addition to many other applications.


Whole-house Reverse Osmosis Systems

Whether you’ve drilled a saltwater well or draw domestic water directly from the sea, The Water Shed has the solution for treating your water. Our units are custom designed and constructed based on each client’s needs. Rates of production, storage capacity, and pre-treatment are just a few of the variables that factor into the development of the equipment.
