What is Reverse Osmosis?

BLOG Posts

Healthy, tasty water at home is a privilege that everyone should have—with water treatment systems, that’s now possible. Water treatment systems filter your water to ensure clean, drinkable water pours from the faucet.

At 1st Choice Water Solutions, our drinking water systems use reverse osmosis filtration to purify your water and improve its quality. But what exactly is reverse osmosis and how does it work? This highly effective way of filtering water may sound very scientific, but it's not too difficult to understand. Let’s dive deeper into the logistics of reverse osmosis.

What Is Reverse Osmosis?

Before learning about reverse osmosis, we must first discuss what osmosis is. Osmosis is a scientific process where molecules of a concentrated solvent pass through a semipermeable membrane (filter) to a less concentrated solution—equalizing both sides. Reverse osmosis takes this process and does exactly what it says—reverses it. Instead of two solvents becoming equally concentrated, a reverse osmosis filter uses your home’s water pressure to push impurities to one side only, leaving you with pure, clean water.

Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System

The 1st Choice Water Solutions reverse osmosis drinking water system has four stages to remove minerals, contaminants, and other impurities from your drinking water. These stages include a prefilter, a membrane, and a postfilter, all housed in a single cartridge. The fourth stage is an in-line carbon filter placed between the tank and faucet to get any remaining sediments out of your water.

How Does Reverse Osmosis Help Your Water System?

If you want to improve your water system, using a filtration system that makes use of reverse osmosis has a number of excellent benefits. These types of filters don't require any complicated plumbing so they're easy to maintain. You just need to clean the main cartridge, which is simple to do. The effective system removes large amounts of contaminants and impurities, filtering your water better than standard water filters. It can remove over 99% of impurities, resulting in much cleaner and safer water.

Not only will your water be softer and healthier, but it will smell and taste better too. There's no sodium aftertaste, which can be an issue with other types of filtration. You won't have to rely on bottled water, which is expensive and heavy to transport to your home. You can even save money on other drinks because you'll add less of them to your water to make them taste great.
