The average reverse osmosis waste water ratio is 4:1. This means for every gallon of clean water, an RO system can use or waste 3-25 gallons of water.

Considering a running tap puts out anywhere from 1-3 gallons a minute, you’re looking at 9-75 gallons of wasted water for every minute you spend washing dishes.

That said, a well-designed reverse osmosis system doesn’t waste water so much as it uses it. Fortunately, as RO systems become more advanced, you’ll find more and more options for systems that use significantly less water.

How to Tell if RO Membrane is Bad (6 Obvious Signs)
Aug .17.2023
The RO membrane in a reverse osmosis system lasts longer than the other filter stages, but it’ll still eventually need to be replaced.

In this guide, we’ve shared the 6 signs to look out for that suggest your RO membrane is bad.

Key Takeaways

The average lifespan of an RO membrane is 2 years.
Reduced flow rate, poor water taste or smell, membrane discoloration or cloudiness, lukewarm water, and elevated TDS are all signs that the membrane needs to be replaced.
Make sure the membrane specifically is bad, and not one of the other filters. Inspect the entire system and check the appearance of the other filters, too.
