It can be said with a lot of authority that RO systems plants, as they are commonly referred to, are the single best water treatment plants that ensures clean and odorless water supply not only for your house but also in your business. Reverse Osmosis plants are developed with the aim of making the water filtration process through the application of pressure to ensure that the natural osmosis process as we know it, is reversed. Osmosis is a movement of a solvent, from the areas of low concentration, to the areas of higher solute concentration through a membrane to establish some form of equilibrium on both sides of the membrane. This generates osmotic pressure. Application of external pressure to reverse the flow of a solvent is what is referred to as Reverse Osmosis.
RO Systems make use of a semi permeable membrane through the permeation principle to allow the natural infiltration direction to take place by applying pressure to the concentrated solution that pushes the clean water to penetrate the membrane and eventually out of the tap. Reverse Osmosis systems are manufactured with the technological advancement that employs a membrane separation method. This process makes sure that all the soluble water pollutants, such as unwanted salts, are separated to produce clean water for consumption among other uses.
In comparison to other forms of water purification methods, Reverse Osmosis Systems are without any doubt the most efficient. The scientific know-how that is applied in designing this system ensures that every source of any kind of water, no matter its level of contamination is potentially a viable source of drinking water. From mud puddles to swimming pools, rain water or even water from a river, Reverse Osmosis systems ensure that all the micro-organisms, viruses, bacteria, harmful chemicals, etc. that contaminates untreated water from any source are filtered and separated from the clean water that is the end product of a Reverse Osmosis process.
There are four significant stages in a Reverse Osmosis System, namely the sediment pre-filter, the carbon pre-filter, the reverse osmosis membrane and the post carbon filter. The Sediment Pre-Filter is the part whereby sediments, dirt particles are removed up to 5 microns. The Carbon Pre-Filter cleans water upto10 microns, and here is where chemical components such as chlorine, taste, and odor are eliminated. The Osmosis Membrane is the part where up to 95% of all the dissolved solids are removed. Finally, the Post Carbon Filter acts as the polisher just before the water is ready for consumption.
However, there has been a theory that the drinking of Reverse Osmosis purified water apparently depletes your calcium and magnesium minerals due to the thoroughness in which an RO plant cleans water. The theory in itself lacks merit in raising concerns of such magnitude considering the fact that the primary source of the above minerals is food and not water. It is far-fetched, to say the least. Get out there by all means and get yourself an RO plant, the advantages of drinking clean water by far outweighs drinking dirty water that has minerals.
