What Does A Reverse Osmosis Filter Do?
Reverse Osmosis or RO for short filters, use a specialty designed filter to remove contaminants from your water supply, by pushing water through a membrane that is microscopic in size. Reverse Osmosis has been used for years to desalinate water and can treat even the worst water and make it safe for drinking. In fact most commercial bottled water suppliers use industrial reverse osmosis filters to treat water, before it’s bottled. All of the RO systems work the same way, the major difference is the type and quality of the reverse osmosis membrane and system itself. For example, system that use more pre-filters will greatly extend the life of the RO filters, which means that you only have to replace the reverse osmosis filter every two to three years, instead of every year.
How Does A Reverse Osmosis Filter Work?
A reverse osmosis filter works by pushing water under pressure through a semi-permeable membrane. The membrane will allow water to pass through, but stops impurities and contaminants from passing through the system, which are flushed down the drain. It is one of the most effective and cost effective ways to purify your tap water.
What Does A Reverse Osmosis Filter Remove?
Reverse osmosis filters, will remove virtually everything from your water that you would want. They have super small micron membrane that can filter out even microscopic bacterial and viruses from your water. The end result is you are left with clean, fresh drinking water that you whole family can enjoy.
