What Is Reverse Osmosis?

Reverse Osmosis Water Purification

The real flavor of water refreshes and satisfies. But today, enjoying a drink of water may not be as simple as filling your glass from the tap. Even when treated by an approved municipal water system, the goodness of water is often marred by minerals, organic matter or chlorine.

Reverse Osmosis is a filtration process used for water. It works by using pressure to force a solution through a membrane, retaining the solute (dissolved solids) on one side and allowing the treated solvent (water) to pass to the other side.

The membranes used for reverse osmosis water systems have a dense barrier designed to allow only water to pass through while preventing the passage of solutes (such as salt ions). This process requires that a high pressure be exerted on the high concentration side of the membrane. Contact us today.

The Final Barrier

The Water Quality Association describes the "final barrier" as "the use of drinking water filtration systems to ensure quality drinking water is available at the water faucet". Use of the "final barrier" can address the following:

  • Harmful by-products formed during chlorination.
  • Corrosion, which may damage appliances.
  • Microbiological contaminants.
  • Trace levels of unregulated contaminants, such as pharmaceuticals.
  • Improved water quality for pregnant women, children, seniors
    and anyone who prefers a healthy lifestyle.

Focus On The 1% percent

Only one percent of the water you use actually goes into your body. This is why providing water treatment at a central location to drinking water quality standards is wasteful and inecient. After all, 99 out of every 100 gallons of municipal water is used to water lawns, flush toilets, fight fires, wash clothing and automobiles, showering, brushing and a host of other external uses.

By focusing on the 1% of the water used to drink, it becomes much easier to protect you and your family from the harmful contaminants listed below:
