If you’ve ever tasted a glass of water that came from a Reverse Osmosis system, you know that crisp, refreshing taste of pure, clean water that is incomparable to anything else.
Reverse Osmosis is defined as “a process by which molecules of a solvent tend to pass through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one, thus equalizing the concentrations on each side of the membrane.” Reverse Osmosis is simply the opposite of that process.
Reverse Osmosis or RO is a highly advanced and innovative process of filtering water. An RO filter has a semi-permeable membrane that by applying substantial amounts of pressure, allows clean water molecules to flow through while rejecting contaminants, dissolved solids, and other particles; thus removing sediment, toxic metals, bacteria, and chemicals.
A Reverse Osmosis system works in multiple stages. First, water passes through the particle filter to remove impurities like salt and sediment. Then the water passes through an activated carbon filter that removes minerals and contaminants such as chlorine, mercury and pesticides. The water is then forced through the membrane’s tiny holes where the smallest impurities are trapped and only clean water passes through. Finally, the water flows through another activated carbon filter as a final polish to ensure all contaminants have been removed.
The Reverse Osmosis filtration process is highly effective and proven technology that removes over 99% of harmful contaminates including: Fluoride, Lead, Chlorine, Pesticides, Detergents, Nitrates & Sulfates. In addition to removing harmful contaminants, a Reverse Osmosis system also removes harmless nuisances that may change the look, smell or taste of your water. With an RO system, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your office is drinking clean, healthy and pure water.
