What is Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis

(RO) is a water treatment process that removes contaminants from water by using water pressure to force water through a semipermeable membrane. During this process, the contaminants in the water are filtered out and flushed away, leaving clean, delicious drinking water. Reverse osmosis is capable of removing up to 99 percent of 65 different contaminants (see partial list below), including lead, fluoride, chlorine, dissolved salts, and more.

Our Reverse Osmosis Systems Generally Have 3 Stages

Sediment Filter:

This pre-filter stage is designed to strain out sediment, silt, and dirt and is especially important as the sediment filter protects dirt from getting to the delicate Reverse Osmosis membranes that can be damaged by sediment.

Reverse Osmosis Membrane:

The semipermeable Reverse Osmosis membrane in your Reverse Osmosis system is designed to allow water through, but filter out almost all additional contaminants.

Polishing Filter:

In our 3 stage Reverse Osmosis System, a final post filter (carbon filter) will “polish” off the water to remove any remaining taste and odor in the water. This final filter ensures you’ll have outstanding drinking water.
