Reverse osmosis systems are used all around the world to give more and more communities access to clean water. You can use a reverse osmosis system for a single faucet or to protect every tap in your house, so that all of the water in the home is safe. This is different than a traditional water filtration system, which may only be effective for eliminating a small number of contaminants. Reverse osmosis systems can remove a larger number of pollutants that are most harmful to your health.
Reverse Osmosis water filters uses a semipermeable membrane to treat water at the molecular level by applying pressure to the “dirty” water and forcing it through a filter. That membrane can be designed to remove many types of molecules and ions from the water. This is a very simplified explanation of reverse osmosis systems, while more complicated than filtration systems, reverse osmosis systems can product excellent water quality and are commonly used in drinking water purification, purification of seawater and removal of other effluents materials from water molecules.
