Whether you're a business or a home owner who wants water that is healthier for the body, a reverse osmosis (RO) system can give you the results that you want. The process of reverse osmosis involves using high pressure to push water through a membrane while leaving contaminants behind. Particles in the water larger than water molecules are removed through the membrane, including potentially toxic substances.
One of the things that is removed through reverse osmosis is lead, which may be found in areas with old water systems. Too much lead in the body can lead to serious health issues, including brain and nerve damage, high blood pressure, and infertility. Children are especially susceptible to the effects of too much lead consumption.
Reverse osmosis can also filter out parasites, which may cause infections and other health issues. RO can also remove other chemical residues like iron and sulfur-based compounds. In fact, RO gives tap water a better taste by filtering out these chemical contaminants, which give tap water a metallic taste.
