How Does RO Work?

If you don’t currently own or lease your own drinking water system in your home such as reverse osmosis, you may know someone who does. If still this doesn’t relate to you, then you may know less about tap water these days than you thought. Sure, the United States has some of the best drinking water in the world but even the water treatment from public water systems isn’t perfect and can contain contaminants that put you and your family’s health at risk. Between the contaminants that are not tested or regulated to those that get into your water between treatment and entering your home’s pipes, RO systems are an advantage to any household big or small.

But for many, there are mysteries associated with reverse osmosis. How does RO work? Where do the contaminants go? Is the resulting water really that much better? Knowing how RO systems work can certainly help solve some of the mystery and help grow an appreciation for the wonders of drinking water technology these days.

Reverse osmosis drinking water systems come in all shapes and sizes as well as effectiveness and efficiency. The main principle is the same, however. The key word for this process is “reverse.” Likewise, the word “osmosis” means the passage or diffusion of water or other solvents through a membrane that blocks the passage of dissolved solutes. To explain a little further in depth, the RO system works by forcing water under pressure through a special synthetic semi-permeable membrane. The membrane has the astounding quality of attracting water molecules and repelling dissolved impurities, even those smaller than the water molecules themselves.

We are excited to share this advantage with the world – we waste less water and produce more quality drinking water. Enjoy safe, pure tap water without the worries that unfiltered water can produce.
