Article Summary: 

Reverse osmosis is a specialized type of water filtration that removes both large and microscopic particles from your water using a semi-permeable membrane. Reverse osmosis systems use a multi-stage process, which includes a basic sediment and carbon filtration process, the reverse osmosis stage, and two final filtration stages. Reverse osmosis is more effective in removing the smallest particles, such as dissolved solids and arsenic, ensuring your water is always safe to drink. Reverse osmosis offers several benefits such as removing lead and mercury, reducing sodium, improving taste, and producing the healthiest possible water for you and your family. With proper maintenance, a reverse osmosis system should last 10 to 15 years. Reverse osmosis is also more environmentally friendly than relying on bottled water for clean-tasting water. However, it does produce wastewater, but you can reduce it by installing a permeate pump or retaining it for landscaping.
