What is Reverse Osmosis?

Aqua Fresh explains reverse osmosis and why it’s the must have water filtration system.


We know what you may be thinking, what on earth is reverse osmosis? In the water filtration world, reverse osmosis (RO) is considered the MUST HAVE water filtration system. It provides a better, safer way to hydrate, cook and make your favourite beverages.

To put it simply, RO is a water filtration process that works by removing contaminants from unfiltered water. By forcing the water through a semipermeable membrane that splits ions, it allows you to have fresh and clean drinking water that is 99.99% free of water contaminants, such as chlorine and fluoride.

This semipermeable membrane consists of small pores that allow water molecules to flow through but blocks the nasties. As water passes through the membrane, it becomes more concentrated, achieving equilibrium on both sides. After this process, the water will go through a postfilter to improve cleanliness before arriving in your faucet. The water produced is called permeate, while the water leftover is called brine.
