Commonly used in both commercial and residential applications, reverse osmosis is a water filtration process that is used to provide the purest quality water for drinking, food preparation and even life support.
While the reverse osmosis may seem complicated, it is actually a very straightforward process. The RO involves the use of pressure to force the water through a membrane that retains inorganic solids such as salt, while allowing the treated water to pass to the other side. Reverse osmosis (R.O.) membranes have a dense barrier, developed to allow only water to permeate while preventing the passage of dissolved solids such as salt ions.
