What Is Reverse Osmosis?

Reverse Osmosis is a water filtering method that begins with untreated water containing a high concentration of contaminants being funneled through a semipermeable membrane. Contaminants in the untreated solution are not permitted to pass through the membrane resulting in water on the other side of the membrane that has considerably fewer contaminants. Reverse osmosis systems are good at removing specific chemicals from your water supply that affect the taste and quality of your water.

What Is Water Filtration?

Water filtration is a water treatment process that uses a filter to extract mineral buildup and sediment particles that contaminate your water supply. Professional plumbing companies can install water filtration systems into homes that perform this delicate water treatment process automatically so that you can cook, bathe, wash, and drink purified water. Installing a professional water filtration system can improve the health of your household and extend the life span of your appliances.

Reverse Osmosis vs. Water Filtration

Both reverse osmosis and water filtration systems effectively improve the purity of untreated water; they just remove different types of contaminants. Traditional water purification systems physically remove dirt and sediment particles from the water but do not eliminate dissolved chemicals. Reverse osmosis systems employ a polymer membrane that filters at a molecular level, extracting dissolved chemicals and salts that a standard water purification system cannot.
