FAQ Reverse Osmosis Water System

FAQ Reverse Osmosis Water System


Q. How does Reverse Osmosis (also referred to as “RO”) work?

A. RO works by passing water through a semi-permeable membrane that separates the pure water into one stream and the salt water into another stream. The process is called “Reverse Osmosis” because it requires pressure to force pure water across a membrane, leaving the impurities behind.

Q. Why do they call it “Reverse Osmosis”?

A. In regular “Osmosis,” such as the process utilized by plants, water flows from a lower concentration of salts to higher concentrations. In “Reverse Osmosis,” the application of pressure greater than the osmotic pressure reverses the water flows from higher concentrations to much lower concentrations, producing pure water.

Q. What Does RO Remove?

A. Among the many things RO systems remove are: Virus, Bacteria, Lead,Chlorine,Fluoride,Arsenic,Asbestos,Pharmaceuticals, PCB, Pesticides and Herbicides.
