Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that is used to remove dissolved inorganic material from water, such as salt, magnesium and calcium carbonate. When attached to a home's plumbing system a reverse osmosis system will use water pressure to force the water through a semi-permeable membrane. This thin membrane allows the water to pass through, while trapping impurities and flushing them down the drain.
Why Use a Reverse Osmosis System?
The advantage of a reverse osmosis system include:
- Better tasting and smelling water
- Highly effective at removing particles and dissolved solids
- No energy consumption
- Flushes contaminants away reducing the need to clean or replace the filter as often
- Very low cost per gallon filtration
