Cons Of Reverse Osmosis System

As with all technical devices, an osmosis system not only has advantages, but also disadvantages. On the one hand, large amounts of wastewater are produced and on the other hand, the energetic structure of the water is destroyed. And the question of contamination is also hotly debated. However, these disadvantages can easily and reliably be remedied or compensated for by suitable measures.

  1. Amounts Of Wastewater:

Between 2-10 liters of tap water are required to produce one liter of osmosis water. A reason for many to keep their hands off such systems. However, considering the amount of energy required to produce purchased bottled water and the possibility of significantly reducing the amount of wastewater, this aspect should not speak against the purchase of an osmosis system.

  1. The Structure Is Destroyed:

Unfortunately, water loses its naturally occurring harmonic structure once it is pumped under pressure.

Since both our pipe system and osmosis systems work with pressure, the natural structure of the water is destroyed. The only thing that helps here is subsequent energizing, for example with crystals, or positive thoughts. More on that another time.

  1. Risk Of Contamination:

As with all filtering techniques, there is also the problem of contamination with the water filter cartridge of the osmosis system. The danger that the germs get into the filtered osmosis water is basically low. After all, the pores of the membrane are too small even for germs and spores.

Thorough maintenance and regular care can minimize these problems, as can a germ barrier. It becomes problematic if the osmosis system is left unused for a long period of time. Because then germs and bacteria can damage the sensitive protective layer of the membrane.


Despite the disadvantages of the osmosis system, there is still no equivalent alternative for the production of ultra-pure water. A large part of the disadvantages can be remedied or greatly reduced by taking appropriate precautions. So there is no reason not to use a reverse osmosis system.
