Reverse Osmosis is a process in which water is forced by pressure (min. 100 psi) through a semipermeable membrane. The good water passes through the membrane while the dissolved and particulate material are sent down the drain.
The RO process uses membranes to remove dissolved solids, organics, pyrogens and bacteria from water. RO also removes sodium, chloride, hadness fertilizers, insecticides, arsenic, heavy metals and many other contaminants from water.
Most importantly, RO reduces total dissolved solid (TDS) content of the water. The membrane consists of tiny holes as small as 0.0006 microns. To give you some perspective, the smallest known bacteria is 0.02 microns
