Frequent questions

Is Reverse Osmosis Water Bad?

The water purified through reverse osmosis by AQUALUX water purifiers is absolutely safe and healthy. The Reverse Osmosis process effectively eliminates any contaminants and provides clean, high-quality water.


It is a fundamental point to underline that, contrary to a common belief, the human body does not assimilate mineral salts from water, but rather from food and any supplements. Oligomineral water is considered ideal for daily intake, as it is healthy, light and helps maintain correct hydration.


AQUALUX Water Purifiers are designed to provide low-mineral water, maintaining an ideal composition that promotes well-being without compromising the purity of the water. This makes AQUALUX Water an excellent option for anyone who is health conscious and wants to ensure they always have pure, light water available.

In summary, the water provided by AQUALUX Water Purifiers is not only safe, but is also in line with the recommendations for healthy hydration.

Does Reverse Osmosis Water have no mineral salts?

Reverse Osmosis removes practically all the impurities and dissolved substances present in the water, however, this does not mean that the purified water is totally free of mineral salts, therefore that it is distilled or harmful to health.

AQUALUX Water Purifiers are approved to supply oligomineral water, i.e. with low fixed residue, a category which includes the very pure waters from mountain sources and some brands of bottled water.


In AQUALUX Water Purifiers, a post-filter is installed which replenishes the mineral salts of calcium and magnesium which allows you to enjoy healthy, light and pure water.

Furthermore, you can customize the post-filter to also provide Alkaline Water on demand.


However, let us remember that the minerals necessary for our body are obtained through nutrition and supplementation and not through water.

Several scientific studies demonstrate that drinking water rich in mineral salts causes an accumulation effect in the organs, which over time can cause stones and calcifications.

Water purified through Reverse Osmosis by AQUALUX offers a safe and healthy way to hydrate, while ensuring excellent taste and superior water quality.

What is Alkaline Water?

Alkaline water is a type of water that has a pH above 7, which is a neutral value. pH is a measurement that indicates how acidic or alkaline a water is. AQUALUX alkaline water purifiers are designed to increase the pH of water by 1 point or 1 and a half points.

Here are some of the main benefits associated with drinking alkaline water:

  1. Body pH Balance: Alkaline water can help balance the body's pH, which tends to be acidic due to our modern diet full of sugar, caffeine and processed foods.

  2. Improved Hydration: Alkaline water has been found to hydrate the body more effectively than regular water, thanks to its molecular structure which allows for better absorption of water molecules.

  3. Antioxidant Support: Alkaline water can provide antioxidant support, neutralizing free radicals that can cause cell damage and premature aging.

  4. Detox: Alkaline water can contribute to the detoxification of the body, helping to eliminate accumulated toxins.

  5. Digestive Support: Alkaline water can help promote healthy digestion, alleviating problems such as stomach acid.

Thanks to the alkaline water provided by AQUALUX purifiers, you will have the opportunity to integrate these benefits into your daily routine. The ability to have alkaline water directly from your purifier allows you to enjoy pure, high-quality water, helping to promote your overall well-being.

How much does a Water Purifier cost?

The cost of a water purifier can vary significantly based on various factors, including the brand, technology used, filtration capacity, materials and additional features. However, it is important to consider that a low price can often indicate lower quality.


Many cheap water purifiers available on online platforms such as Amazon may come from East Asia and are often made with lower quality materials and components. This can have a negative impact on their efficiency, durability and, above all, on the quality of the water they produce. Filtration systems may be less effective and the materials used may not be up to the safety and quality standards you expect.

Is the water from the purifier safe?

Absolutely yes, the water supplied by AQUALUX Water Purifiers is safe and of high quality. Our purifiers use Reverse Osmosis technology, recognized as one of the most effective methods for eliminating any contaminant that may be present in water, including bacteria, viruses, chlorine, heavy metals, pesticides, arsenic, PFAS and other harmful substances.

Furthermore, AQUALUX purifiers are designed and built following strict quality and safety standards. Each unit undergoes thorough checks to ensure that it functions correctly and provides safe and pure low-mineral water, maintaining a low-mineral composition that is ideal for promoting your well-being.

As we always point out, the human body does not assimilate mineral salts from water, but from food and supplements, which is why low-mineral water is the ideal choice for our health.


The safety and satisfaction of our customers are our priority.

Does Reverse Osmosis waste water?

Reverse Osmosis is a very effective process for purifying Water, but it is true that during this process, a certain amount of Water is used to rinse away impurities and is then discharged. However, it is important to put this into perspective.


Firstly, the Water used during Reverse Osmosis serves to keep the membranes clean and efficient, thus ensuring high quality Water Purification.

Furthermore, AQUALUX Water Purifiers are designed to perform and minimize the use of water. Thanks to advanced technologies, our Reverse Osmosis systems have a very competitive water recovery ratio compared to other products on the market.


Furthermore, thanks to AQUALUX purifiers you will no longer need to buy bottled water, which has a much more significant environmental impact if we think about the production, transport and disposal of plastic bottles.


Finally, there are ways to reuse wastewater, such as garden irrigation or other non-potable uses. In this way, you can further contribute to the optimization of the use of resources.

Reverse Osmosis is a responsible and sustainable choice that provides pure and safe water for you and your family, while contributing to the protection of our planet.

Is it harmful to drink tap water?

Tap water is subjected to treatments that ensure its drinkability, but unfortunately "drinkable" is not synonymous with "good to drink" or "ideal for our health".

Aside from the problems that may arise with very old pipes, unfortunately, like all things, water also suffers from environmental pollution.


In most cases in tap water we can find chlorine, limestone, pesticides, heavy metals, arsenic, PFAS, agricultural waste, industrial waste and other unwanted substances.

AQUALUX Water Purifiers, thanks to reverse osmosis technology, eliminate all these impurities ensuring pure, high quality water.

Is it safe to drink bottled water?

Bottled Water is generally safe, but the disproportionate use of plastic from it is causing more and more damage to our environment. However, there are also cases of contamination. In addition, plastic over time, and when exposed to light and heat sources, releases substances into the Water, which according to several studies go on to disturb our endocrine and hormonal systems.


Let us also not forget that by Law, Water can remain bottled for up to 2 full years.

By opting for an AQUALUX Water Purifier, you choose a more eco-friendly and safe solution for our health.

Why choose Purified Water?

Choosing Purified Water with Reverse Osmosis means guaranteeing yourself and your family light, healthy, pure Water free of any harmful substances, for drinking, cooking, washing fruits and vegetables or preparing tea and herbal teas.


AQUALUX Purifiers therefore allow you to have purified Water at km 0, freshly produced directly in your kitchen, no longer needing to buy bottled Water and thus helping to drastically reduce the environmental impact of plastic.

Is a Reverse Osmosis or Microfiltration Purifier Better?

While microfiltration removes only the largest physical particles, Reverse Osmosis is capable of removing a much wider range of dissolved contaminants, such as heavy metals, pesticides, limestone, etc.


AQUALUX Reverse Osmosis Purifiers are therefore a superior choice for those seeking the highest purity and safety of Water.

In fact, it can be easily seen that the taste of Tap Water and Microfiltered Water is very similar. Read more about this topic in the section "Filtration Systems."
