What Does Reverse Osmosis Do for My Home?

What is Reverse Osmosis? How does it work?

Reverse Osmosis is a technological advancement that uses a tissue which is only permeable to liquids. This, in turn, sieves out large particles including stones, soil particles and other unwanted particles in your drinking water. The process is also used to sieve out ions and other small bacterial carrying microorganisms which are often found in water. If a reverse osmosis system is installed in your home, it can produce purified water straight from the tap.

Reverse Osmosis can also be used in desalination of sea water. Seawater contains a high percentage of salt chlorine in it making it unsafe for household usage. Many people in Virginia Beach uses sea water in their day to day activities in their homes.

This system can be installed by our team of experts who have a vast experience in the field.
