    What is Reverse Osmosis? Reverse Osmosis (RO from hereon in), is a process to de-mineralize or de-ionize water by pushing it under pressure through a semi-permeable, one-way RO Membrane. The membrane works to separate contaminants from the water you want to use. Think of it as a very fine mesh with holes large enough to let through molecules of water but too small to allow “unwanted” particles to pass through. RO can remove many types of dissolved and...
