How Does RO Work?

You know how pure and energizing water tastes if you’ve ever sipped from a glass that came from someone’s house who has a reverse osmosis system. Or maybe you’re worried about the quality of the water and want to make sure your family is drinking clean water that has the fewest toxins possible. The purest option for any home is drinking water that has undergone reverse osmosis (R.O.).

What is reverse osmosis?

Let’s define osmosis first in order to comprehend reverse osmosis. Osmosis, as defined by Brittanica, is the process by which water or other solvents pass through a semipermeable membrane while the barrier is holding back particles. The direction of natural osmosis is always from the water with the highest concentration to the water with the lowest concentration. Osmosis is the mechanism by which a plant’s roots extract water and nutrients from the soil; to visualize this process in action, visualize how a plant draws water and nutrients from the soil.

Reverse osmosis is fundamentally the same as osmosis in that it involves molecules passing through a semipermeable membrane to remove impurities from water. The main distinction is that reverse osmosis does the opposite of what occurs naturally, hence it needs extra pressure to push the water through the membrane. Compared to the higher concentration on the other side of the filtration membrane, the unfiltered water contains a lower concentration of pure H2O. Therefore, external forces must push the water for it to go through the system. The fresh, uncontaminated water is left on one side of the reverse osmosis membrane while the contaminants are on the other side since the membrane inhibits both large and small contaminants.

The reverse osmosis membrane in the reverse osmosis system functions like a form of a filter when thinking about reverse osmosis with reference to the water in your home since it contains incredibly tiny holes that help eliminate microscopic impurities from the water you drink by straining them out. The semipermeable membrane in reverse osmosis drinking water systems only allows water molecules to pass while other impurities are gathered and washed away. The end product is pleasant, fresh, and high-quality filtered water that can be drunk.

How does RO work?

The focal point of the Reverse Osmosis system is its RO membrane, but RO systems also have other types of filtrations. Depending on their price and quality, they are made up of 3, 4, or 5 stages. They have one or more of these below-mentioned filters:

  • Sediment filter – Reduces Dirt, Dust, and Rust particles.
  • Carbon filter – Decreases the amount of volatile organic compounds such as chlorine and other substances that give the water a sour taste and smell.
  • Semi-permeable membrane: Removes almost 98% of the dissolved solids in the water.

A Step-By-Step Water Filtration Breakdown

  • After entering the RO system, the water goes through prefiltration first, which includes carbon and a sediment filter to remove the sediments and chlorine that may damage the entire RO membrane.
  • Then the water goes through the RO membrane, where the tiniest dissolved particles are removed.
  • Once that is done, the water flows into the storage tank, where it is kept until needed for consumption. The RO system filters water until the storage tank is full and stops automatically.
  •  On turning on the drinking water faucet, the water comes out of the storage tank. It passes through another postfilter to polish the drinking water before it gets into the tap.

Uses of RO water

1. Safe Drinking Water

Drinking water that has undergone chemical treatment puts stress on the liver and kidneys, however, RO-filtered water will make it simple for us and our family to get access to safe, fresh, and clean drinking water.

2. Better Taste and Smell in RO Water

Tap water is frequently tasteless due to contaminants like lead, iron, nitrates, sulfur-based compounds, and different chemical residues. These impurities are eliminated through reverse osmosis treatment, which also improves the flavor of drinking water.

3. Multiple filtration processes:

The fact that RO Water has numerous filtration processes is one of its most significant advantages. Six to eight stages of water purification are found in a decent water purifier. Each level has a significant job to do. Through many levels, odors, smells, and dust particles are eliminated. The reverse osmosis membrane controls water’s TDS level. UV rays cause harm to bacteria and viruses. Water is made suitable for drinking and cooking at these stages of filtration.

4. RO Purifiers don’t destroy essential minerals

 The RO water machine doesn’t affect the water’s naturally important minerals. Only the excess minerals are removed by the Livpure water purifier (which can be harmful to health).

The built-in mineralizer replenishes your water with necessary minerals like calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper, and more to guarantee that it has the right mineral levels

Maintenance costs

An RO water purifier‘s ease of maintenance is another important advantage. The internal components need to be properly inspected regularly, in addition to dusting or cleaning the external system with a clean cloth everyday or every other day.

The professionals you bought your water purifier from are typically the ones who do the checking and replacement process. The best option is to choose a full examination once every six months. If a component exhibits symptoms of dysfunction, the experts will recommend a replacement. Your RO system should last between 10 and 15 years on average.

Water wastage

The amount of purified RO drinking water you use and the amount of water wasted or rejected by a RO water purifier will be roughly equal.

This leftover water can be put to good use. Watering plants in your lawn, cleaning your automobile, and even washing clothes are a few popular uses. In each instance, you can test to see if the water is causing any harm first. For example, some plants might not thrive or the garments might get linty.
