REVERSE OSMOSIS WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM
Reverse Osmosis (RO)technology goes beyond the abilities of typical waterfiltration by using a semipermeable membrane to remove impurities from water. Reverse Osmosis water filtration provides a low-maintenance, chemical-free option to help achieve clean, great-tasting water each and every day. Our large selection of reverse osmosis will ensure the right RO system for your home or business. Learn more about benefits of reverse osmosis systems.
What does a Reverse Osmosis Filter System do?
Producing Drinking Water Using Reverse Osmosis
Although Reverse Osmosis seems like a complex system it is really a simple and straightforward water filtration process. And it’s not a new process. High-pressure (pump driven) reverse osmosis systems have been used for years to desalinate* water –to convert brackish or seawater to drinking water. Having a better understanding of how a reverse osmosis system works will eliminate the mystery and confusion you may feel when you look at a reverse osmosis system — with its many colored tubes and multitude of filters. Read on to enhance your knowledge of residential reverse osmosis systems.
The most important points to remember:
- All RO Systemswork the same way.
- Most RO (Reverse Osmosis) systems look alike.
- All RO Systems have the same basic components.
- The real difference is the quality of the filters and membranesinside the RO.
How does a Reverse Osmosis Membrane work?
Reverse Osmosis is a process in which are removed from a solution (such as water). This is accomplished by household water pressure pushing the tap water through a semi permeable membrane. The membrane (which is about as thick as cellophane) allows only the water to pass through, not the impurities or contaminates. These impurities and contaminates are flushed down the drain.

Ultimately, the factors that affect the performance of a Reverse Osmosis System are:
- Incoming water pressure
- Water Temperature
- Type and number of total dissolved solids (TDS) in the tap water
- The quality of the filters and membranes used in the RO System (see operating specs)
Advantages of Reverse Osmosis
