What is Reverse Osmosis (RO)?
The Reverse Osmosis process was used as a way to desalinate seawater by moving the water supply in a reverse flow passing through semi-permeable membranes. With the popularity of filtered bottled drinking water, in-home RO water filters installed at the point of use are a cost-effective and sustainable alternative for great tasting water. Quality reverse osmosis water filters have a pore size of .0001 microns and, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), is highly effective at removing multiple contaminants from drinking water. Point of Use RO water filtration systems have a three to five stage water filter that uses a sediment filter, one or more activated carbon filters plus a membrane filter to remove contaminants from the water. The first stage of this RO water filtration traps sediment, silt and other larger particles from the water. The Reverse Osmosis drinking water filter second stage pressurizes the water pushing it through the RO membrane, which filters out impurities, chemicals, and harmful contaminants found in the contaminated water. The third stage in the filtration process is one last water filter to ensure filtered water at the sink is fresh, pure, odor free and tastes incredible.
