All About Reverse Osmosis
Updated: May 30, 2020
All of our water filtration systems at Neptune Water Systems use Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration process, to find out what that means read on as we explain a little bit about what RO is, and why it matters.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a high quality water filtration process that reduces impurities from drinking water. The process forces water through a specialized semi-permeable membrane resulting in impurities being removed. This membrane is pretty thin, around the thickness of cellophane and acts as a physical barrier to almost all contaminants in the water including pesticides, salts, chemicals and hazardous metals. Once the water passes through the membrane it removes most of these contaminants, leaving clean and refreshing water behind. It is one of the most convenient and effective filtration methods available and is the same technology capable of desalinating sea water to be made into drinking water.
Filters that do not use reverse osmosis can filter out coarse particles, sediments and other elements, but anything finer including most dissolved substances cannot be filtered out.
The benefits of RO filtered water are:
Helps reduce levels of certain chemicals and pesticides
Helps reduce levels of dissolved solids in water
Helps reduce levels of contaminants such as chloride, fluoride, sodium and nitrates
Improves taste by reducing the number of contaminants, excellent for cooking
Reduces unpleasant odours from water
Saves money, no more need for bottles
Better for the environment thanks to the reduction in the plastic
At Neptune Water Solutions, we want you to have the best drinking water which is why Reverse Osmosis is just one step in our 5-stage filtration process.
