The Lowdown on Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration Systems

Reverse Osmosis may sound like a bit of a complex procedure for a home water filtration system. However, it has proven to be an effective way of ensuring that a home is always supplied with clean water and here is a closer look at how it works.

The Process
The Reverse Osmosis (RO) process ultimately results in the production of purified water which has the capability of extracting contaminants while also separating small molecules and ions. Essentially, the RO process is one that is capable of removing salt from salt water and turning it into drinking water. That kind of process can be applied to home based systems in which water is purified. An RO system typically treats three different kinds of water: saltwater, fresh water and brackish water. Fresh water is…
