Reverse osmosis is a very effective treatment technology that can remove salt, dissolved solids, and other impurities from water. RO systems can be used for a variety of applications including drinking water, wastewater treatment, desalination, and more.
Here at the Pure Water blog, we know a lot about reverse osmosis. We’ve designed treatment processes that use RO technology and we’ve operated and maintained many of these systems. We also have these filters in our homes to purify our family’s drinking water.
We’ve prepared the following articles to share our expertise about reverse osmosis to help you learn more about this treatment technology.
General Information About Reverse Osmosis
Reverse osmosis is a filtration process that uses pressure to force water through a membrane. The pores in the membrane are small enough to allow water to pass through, but not larger molecules such as salt or dissolved solids.
In this section, we have a list of articles that provide general information about reverse osmosis. You can learn how RO works, strategies to optimize their performance, and how to install and maintain them.
Reverse osmosis can effectively remove a lot of contaminants from water. In these articles, we discuss how well RO can remove specific contaminants, special considerations, and other important information.
We hope the information in these articles will help you better understand reverse osmosis and how it can be used to improve your water quality.
