Reverse osmosis water uses the process of osmosis in reverse to remove contaminants that are in drinking water.
It works by using energy to push water through a semi-permeable membrane that removes chemical contaminants and pesticides as well as sodium, chloride, copper, chromium, lead, arsenic, fluoride, radium, sulfate, calcium, magnesium, potassium, nitrate, and phosphorous as well as pharmaceutical drugs that may end up in our water system.
Modern RO units for the home combine membrane technology with carbon and mechanical filtration to produce highly purified, great-tasting water.
How does it work?
To put it simply, the water in modern home units is driven by normal city water pressure and flows through a sediment pre-filter which removes any dirt and small particles that are in the water. Next, a carbon pre-filter removes organic contaminants, including chlorine and its by-products. It then enters the reverse osmosis membrane-- a very tight, sheet-like filter-- which allows water to pass but rejects dissolved solids and impurities such as sodium, lead, and arsenic.
Some of the water entering the unit is used to cleanse the membrane surface and flows to the kitchen drainpipes. The purified water is stored in a small storage tank until it is needed. When the faucet mounted on the sink is opened, the purified water is forced through another carbon filter, which gives it a final polish and from there to the faucet.
