Reverse Osmosis Information
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
