Reverse osmosis filtration is a method of filtering water closely at the molecular level. This is done by forcing water through a highly advanced thin plastic membrane. Water molecules are slowly forced through the pores in the membrane, and then stored in a reservoir holding tank until needed. Larger molecules are pushed past the pore openings and down to a drain. These membranes are manufactured to reject up to 99% of certain dissolved solids from water.
Reverse osmosis water is one of the purest forms of water that can be made without the use of chemicals or heat. Recent advancements in technology have allowed reverse osmosis systems to be made at an affordable price for the homeowner. A properly maintained system will reduce total dissolved solids; reduce salts such as sodium, nitrates heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, and mercury.
