Purified by Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis is a powerful water purification system that turns unpurified water into clean drinking water. It can convert seawater into fresh drinkable water by using it’s special water filtration technology. It is also used for water irrigation in drought ridden areas, and some models don’t require electricity but rely upon high pressure pumps to make purified water suitable for drinking.

How Does Reverse Osmosis Work?

Basically a Reverse Osmosis Filter is made up of membranes that allow water particles to pass through the membrane or filter but not larger particles like heavy metals, sediment, pathogens, chemicals or toxins.  It allows passage from an area of greater pressure or concentration to that of a lower one. It is a powerful way to strain out the unwanted things in a water source to make it clean and highly purified drinking water.
