Key Points

  1. Water contaminants that contribute to stomach issues
  2. Removing contaminants using iSpring’s reverse osmosis water filtration systems
  3. When to seek medical help 


If you have persistent stomach pain and cannot discover the root cause, the problem may be hiding in your drinking water. Though it is uncommon for water contaminants to be the source of stomach issues for most, do not rule out the negative impact these toxins can have if they find their way into your water.


If your water contains high levels of sulfate, this may cause diarrhea. High levels of sulfate can also lead to dehydration, leaving your body craving more of what is causing it trouble. Other contaminants that might be contributing to your upset stomach include germs such as E. coli, Cryptosporidium, Campylobacter, and Giardia. Each of these typically enters otherwise clean water when sewage overflows, the sewage systems are not working properly, or there is polluted stormwater runoff. 


Though the latter can be removed from your water by boiling it, the removal of sulfur is more complicated and requires a water filtration system. All are effortlessly removed by employing a reverse osmosis (RO) water filtration system that will ensure all of these and any other contaminants are removed. 


Three of the recommended systems iSpring offers to guarantee you are enjoying water free of toxins are our RCC7AK, our RO500AK-BN, and our RCD100. Each of these reverse osmosis systems removes up to 99% of contaminants from your water, leaving nothing behind but confidence in your drinking water. 



  1. uses a 6-stage Alkaline Remineralization Layered Filtration, exclusively designed to restore the natural alkalinity and mineral balance of your water
  2. employs an ultra-fine RO filter to remove contaminants down to 0.0001 microns
  3. is NSF/ANSI 58 certified
  4. features a second-stage GAC filter and a third-stage carbon block filter to effectively eliminate chlorine, unpleasant tastes, odors, cloudiness, and sediment
  5. uses a pressurized tank to ensure a stable water flow
  6. produces up to 75 gallons of filtered water per day
  7. can be connected directly to the refrigerator’s water supply

Our RO500AK-BN is the next-generation, tankless reverse osmosis filtration system that

  1. functions four times more efficiently than traditional RO systems providing a faster water flow and a higher pure-to-waste ratio saving water waste by up to 400% compared to traditional RO systems
  2. contributes to reduced water bills and less water going down the drain because of its industry-leading pure-to-waste ratio of up to 2.5:1
  3. employees a 1st-stage 2-in-1 composite Sediment and Carbon Block filter, a 2nd-stage advanced RO Membrane, and 3rd-stage Carbon Alkaline Filter 
  4. restores the natural alkalinity and mineral balance of water
  5. produces up to 500 gallons of filtered water per day

Our RCD100 is our premier reverse osmosis countertop system that, like the RCC7AK and RO500AK-BN, can remove up to 99% of over 1,000 harmful contaminants such as vinyl chloride, chlorine, fluoride, lead, arsenic, asbestos, calcium, sodium and more. This filter

  1. requires no installation and only needs a plug-in to operate
  2. has a revolutionary instant heating function that quickly allows a customized experience by providing four temperature settings
  3. uses a five-stage filtration system
  4. boasts a large-capacity water tank that holds 1.3 gallons of water
  5. employs an innovative wastewater circulation technique that enhances the filtration performance, achieving a remarkable and unbeatable up to 2.5:1 pure-to-drain water ratio
  6. can produce up to 100 gallons of contaminant-free water per day
  7. includes convenience features such as a self-cleaning mode, a smart panel display, a twist-and-lock design for filter replacement, an energy-saving mode, a child safety lock, and a quiet operation


Though you can feel certain our systems are doing their job in removing harmful impurities from your water, if your stomach issues persist, you may have a medical issue such as IBS, a stomach ulcer, or Gastroparesis and will need to seek medical attention.
