Many people have heard of "reverse osmosis" or even "reverse osmosis water," but most don't know what "reverse osmosis" actually is.
In the 1950's, reverse osmosis was employed in the quest to desalinate saltwater in an effort to make potable drinking water. Since then reverse osmosis systems have been used in homes where water is less palatable due to a high mineral content or other contaminant levels.
Reverse osmosis (RO) systems are also used in manufacturing processes to provide water that can be used in clean rooms or sterile environments. They are also used in bakeries and restaurants to provide water for steam ovens. Pharmacies and dialysis systems utilize water filtered by a reverse osmosis system for patients who may be particularly susceptible to contaminants, bacteria, and cysts in unfiltered water.
