5 Things To Consider Before Buying A Reverse Osmosis Filtration System

Home Improvement

The tap water is no longer considered safe. People are becoming well versed in the seriousness of the health complications that are caused due to contaminated water. Thereby, they are bound to take preventive measures so as to keep their family safe. The most effective way is to install a reverse osmosis filtration system. It is claimed that the reverse osmosis filtration system removes 99% of contamination that is dissolved in water by using pressure to force the water to pass through the membrane where the contaminants are trapped, allowing only pure water to pass on after filtration. Since there are many RO filtration systems available in the market, it becomes challenging for people to choose the best RO Filtration system. The Water Softeners from Fleck are always considered to be the top rated and highly appreciated, but there are also other models that worth considering. For your assistance, below is the short guide on things that you need to consider to make a wise purchasing decision.

The Water Sources

To buy the best reverse osmosis filtration system, you need to know the water source. There are two different types of water sources, the city water and well water sources. In urban areas, the water source comes from the water treatment plant and this water is treated prior to supply and hence it is less contaminated. So, the basic models of reverse osmosis filtration would be the best choice in such case. However, in suburban areas where the private wells are the water sources, the level of contamination would be higher, and hence you would require an RO filtration system with UV light sterilizer which can remove the microorganism from the source water.

Filtration Quality

Owing to the technology difference the rejection ratio of RO filtration system differs. Besides the reverse osmosis membrane filter, there are also post filters and pre-filters which would determine the efficiency of the filtration system. The best way to evaluate the effectiveness of the filtration system is by using the total dissolved solid meter which helps you to gauge the filtered water against the source water. Another way is to check the certification in NSF and WQA which proves its efficiency in filtering contaminated water.

Flow Rate

The flow rate depends on a variety of factors like water temperature and water pressure. Most of the RO systems are about to filter 50 gallons per day in an optimum condition. This is the amount which is 20% lesser than stated. So, if you have a more extensive family of 8 members, then ensure to go for RO systems that can produce 50GDP like Water Softeners From Fleck.

Water Pressure

Sufficient pressure is required for pushing the source water through fine membrane for filtration of the contaminated water. The filters with higher water pressure are always best to meet the filtration needs of the RO system. If the source water pressure is lower than 40PSI, then ensure buying a filter with s booster pump.

Budget

Finally, the budget of the RO system is what you need to decide. Check the initial cost, and the cost required for its maintenance and based on its value make the purchasing decision.

STAR WARS EPISODE 3- REVENGE OF THE SITH : MOVIE REVIEW

Entertainment Movies

2005 was the year when Star Wars fans around the world got what was due. The much-deserved closure was delivered with the release of Star Wars Episode 3- Revenge of the Sith. It was going to be an experience of epic proportions, the plot to end all schemes. Expectations were high from the ‘sequel to the prequels’ and boy, did it deliver. A whopping $848 million is no easy feat, but the question is, ‘Who does the movie owe its success to?’ As the Star Wars tradition goes, people came to the opening night, dressed as their favourite characters, spouting dialogues and monologues from the movie and having actual lightsaber fights in parking lots. Sure, it is amusing but also inspiring, watching the passion that drives these people. Inside that hall, the iconic intro music filled the massive room, only to be drained out by the cheers and shouts from the fans standing on their seats. And it is also available on the latest version of ShowBox app, you can get the latest version here. The movie had run its course by the time the credits rolled; it made me think. How would Darth Vader react if he saw his own story? Because if he did, I think he’d be doubtful.

THE PLOT

Spoiler Alert! It’s been 13 years since the movie has been out, so it doesn’t really matter at this point of time, but don’t say we didn’t warn you. The plot is set three years post the events of ‘The Clone Wars’. The Jedi Knights are leading a war against The Separatists (Led by General Grievous). The movie starts out with Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and his young apprentice Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) flying around, piloting pew-pew ships, fighting endless hoards of The Separatist minions on a mission to rescue Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) from General Grievous (voiced by Matthew Wood). Upon successfully doing so, Palpatine appoints Anakin as his representative to the Jedi Council, where he is denied the honour of a Jedi Master, which essentially marks the beginning of the fall of Anakin Skywalker. Meanwhile, he is reunited with his wife Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman), who reveals her pregnancy. To my surprise, Anakin didn’t look very happy by the news, which is explained by Anakin’s vision of Padmé dying in childbirth, worrying him. Palpatine tries to seduce Anakin into accepting the dark side of the force, tempting him with the power to save his loved ones. He is reluctant at first but then finally gives in and becomes Darth Vader in the climax of the film. The movie ends with the birth of Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker, Padmé’s death and Obi-wan going into exile.

THE REVIEW

As the movie began, it was evident that the CGI had improved multifold since the last two prequels in the series. Space had more depth, the models looked better, and the animations were breathtaking, but in my opinion, it was overused. CGI was used instead of a real-life set a couple of times, which killed the authenticity. It wasn’t all too bad considering Yoda, who started as a rubber toy was now a living CGI character, but still. George Lucas has always been a great story writer and this story is compelling, but his insecurities regarding the plot were greatly visible, especially with the dialogues. The necessity of putting every emotion the characters felt into words, was overkill and the delivery was deadpan, even cheesy and corny at times. The direction was flawed And made everything look emotionless. So much effort was put into choreography that the characters lost the spontaneity of the moments, which made it wooden. The acceptance of the dark side by Anakin was so abrupt that it caught me off guard like someone hit the switch and Bing! Welcome to the dark side. Sure, the movie had its moments as well, like when Grievous pulled out four lightsabers, that one had me jumping, and to hear James Earl Jones reprise his voice for Darth Vader was a treat, but it doesn’t cover up for the flaws of this production.

THE VERDICT

The force was strong with Episode III when it came to the storyline, but it turned over to the dark side with its production. Anakin deserved a better screen presence, and CGI lost itself in its complexity rather than conveying the depth of the situations. A little emotion in the dialogues would have made this movie the perfect end for the beginning. Nonetheless, it holds steadfast when it comes to being a part of the greatest saga ever written and is a spectacle to watch.

Star Wars Episode II: Movie review

Entertainment Movies

Star Wars is a film series created by George Lucas in 2002. Jonathan Hales helped him write it, but he directed the film himself. Episode II named ‘Attack of the Clones ‘ had Antony Daniels, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman and Ian McDiarmid as some of the star actors. The 4-star rating film is an epic opera film that captures the romantic story of a Senator and her guard. Episode II is an almost accurate representation of what humans imagine aliens to be.

Episode Summary

The Episode begins with a sensational chase through city canyons and brief scenes of planets and spaceships. It also includes a dialogue by two characters sharing what happened after ‘Episode I’ and helping the audience connect the dots and get the gist of the story. They also discuss the political climate of the Galactic Republic and muse over the political unease and the future of the Galaxy. The characters tell of the Separatist movement led by Jedi Count Dooku that threatens to plunge the Galactic Republic in the civil war.

Senator Padme travels to Coruscant to help the Jedi deal with this threat and ends up surviving and assassination attempt. She is put under the protection of Knight Kenobi and Anakin, his assistant. After a second assassination attempt, Knight Kenobi is assigned to search for the bounty hunter that saved Padme from her would be assassin and Anakin is left to guard her. The two fall in love with each other and the bigger part of the rest of this Episode focus on their romantic relationship. Knight Kenobi finds the bounty hunter and discovers a plot by the Trade Federation to bring an army of Clones to destroy the Galactic Republic. He is captured before he can relay the message to Anakin, but Yodu duels Count Dooku and saves Kenobi, and Anakin from sure death.

Movie Aspects

The dialogue in this film is such a letdown with the characters at the beginning of the film sounding like bickering lawyers instead of the heroes of the romantic fantasy of this Episode. They lack the thrilling and captivating tone that would set the mood for a hopeless romantic to enjoy the film. Padme and Anakin do a good job in bringing out the romance in the film but their dialogue is somewhat flat and almost seems robotic. The romantic lines are such cliches, except for one point when Anakin tells Padme, “I don’t like the sand. It’s coarse, rough and irritating-not like you.” At this point, the film starts to have some uniqueness and authenticity.

On the other side, the photography and computer-generated images are breathtaking, with the strange aliens and towering cities giving one pause. The directing also does a spectacular job of capturing the transformation of the young guard Anakin into the vicious, murderous man.

Conclusion

People have some pretty strange ideas about aliens, and Episode II of Star Wars does their imagination justice, especially compared to Episode I. I would recommend Attack of the Clones for you if you’re a sucker for romance and the ideals of good winning over evil.

Star Wars Episode I: Movie Review

Entertainment Movies

The plot for the movie has been set thirty-two years before the original film released by George Lucas. The movie follows a storyline in which the Jedi Knights and Obi-Wan strive to protect the queen in the quest of securing an end to an interplanetary trade dispute. They are joined by a Skywalker who possesses the extreme powers of the Force. While trying to settle the dispute, they discover the return of mysterious Sith race.The movie is another blockbuster brought to us by the mastermind George Lucas.

It begins thirty-two years before the start of the original storyline, where the trade federation is causing distress to the galactic republic resulting in jamming all communications to the planet Naboo with the intent of capturing the planet using a full-scale invasion. To maintain the normality, the Republic’s supreme chancellor reports the Jedi master (played by Liam Neeson) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (played by Ewan McGregor) to start a negotiation with the federation. During their operation, they meet a young Skywalker (played by Jake Lloyd) as well as the outcast jar-jar-binks and hence begins their adventure. The movie has been set against awesome backdrops.

The characters portrayed in “The Phantom Menace” dwell within a plot which is a tad more complex than many other science-fiction magazines. The dialogue produced by the characters is pretty flat and straightforward which gives it an impression of being seasoned with a quasi-classical formality. There are numerous rules established by George Lucas before planning for the movie, and within these rules, he has scripted a brilliant story. The key development in the movie is the meeting of Master and the young Anakin Skywalker. The Jedi Master immediately upon meeting the kid realizes that the powers are extremely strong around him. This then follows a few quite emotional scenes where Anakin is told to leave his mother and follow the Jedi to train under him. Lucas’ visuals in these scenes are great, and the movie’s energy level as a whole is much more cheerful than before; he refrains from sharing the fact that the future is a dark place.

The movie is filled completely with exhilaration. Almost each and every scene of the movie is filled completely with a sense of discovery, as Lucas tries new effects and ideas in the movie. He gives the viewers a threshold of the new age of epic cinema. A rich usage of digital cinematographic meant that the imagination of the filmmakers would not be limited just to the script. Having a length of 133 minutes, it is a little longer than typical George Lucas film. However, it is worth watching the movie, every second of it. I would gladly rate the movie 4.5 stars out of 5. Whether it is about the storyline, the acting, or the VFX, you are surely going to love almost everything about this movie.

So, in case you have somehow missed this amazing movie of the Star Wars series, I would highly recommend you just to go and watch, or you will miss a legendary movie of its time.
