What Is Reverse Osmosis?

How Reverse Osmosis Works

If you want to take your water filtration system to the next level, look no further than reverse osmosis. You may be scratching your head right about now, wondering what is reverse osmosis and what does it have to do with my water? Let us explain how it works and what the benefits of reverse osmosis water are.

How Does Reverse Osmosis Work?

Let’s start by talking about desalination, which is the process of removing salt from seawater. In order to separate water from salt to make it safe to drink, it must go through the reverse osmosis process. Reverse osmosis happens when pressure is applied to a highly concentrated solute solution (in this case, the salt water) to pass through a membrane to a lower concentrated solution. This process leaves a higher concentration of solute (salt) on one side and only the solvent (fresh water) on the other. What it boils down to is cleaner, more pure water. The same reverse osmosis method can be applied to help remove other minerals, substances, molecules and impurities from the water that runs throughout your house.

Why Is Reverse Osmosis Relevant?

When it comes to water filtration and getting the best quality water to drink, reverse osmosis can really make a difference. Reverse osmosis systems work to help remove minerals that may cause hard water, bacteria, sediment and other impurities. There are many benefits of reverse osmosis water. For example, when you drink reverse osmosis water you can minimize the risk of drinking water that may contain lead, arsenic or chlorine since a reverse osmosis system can help effectively remove these contaminants.
