Reverse Osmosis

REVERSE OSMOSIS is a process which overcomes many of the shortcomings of distillation and deionization.

Reverse osmosis can be explained better after understanding the natural process of osmosis. Osmosis is the movement of water across a semipermeable membrane from the less concentrated (purer) side to the more concentrated (saltier) side. This movement continues until the concentrations reach equilibrium or the pressure on the more concentrated side becomes high enough to stop the flow. Osmosis is the natural process by which water is drawn into a plant’s root, or moved from one cell to another in our bodies.

Reverse Osmosis typically removes 90-99% of most contaminants
