What is Reverse Osmosis?
Osmosis is the natural process by which plants and trees take up water and nutrients from the soil around their root systems. When solutions of different concentrations are separated by a semi permeable membrane - which will only allow the passage of water and not the dissolved solids - water will naturally pass from the dilute solution to the more concentrated, in order to make the solution strengths equal. This phenomenon is called OSMOSIS.
Osmosis can be reversed by applying pressure to the more concentrated solution, then collecting the pure water which passes through the membrane. This ‘Permeate Water’ is virtually free of biological, chemical and dissolved organic substances. This is the principle of Reverse Osmosis.
