WHAT IT DOES
Reverse Osmosis membranes used in water filtration systems can, on average, remove 95% of all total dissoluble solids (TDS) from your water supply. Regular filtration cannot remove TDS’s, only non-dissolved solids. This level of filtration gets down to the molecular level, .0001 microns or 1 angstrom.
Pure substances have a higher energy state than non-pure substances. It follows that pure water is at a higher energy state than non-pure water. The principle of osmosis states that whenever two substances of differing energy states are divided by a passable (semi-permeable) membrane, the higher energy solution will pass through the membrane until the energy levels are equalized.
Therefore, regular osmosis will move the pure water (higher energy level) through the membrane to the non-pure water until both sides of the membrane have an equal amount of energy.
REVERSING THE FLOW
When Rome utilizes Reverse Osmosis, we are essentially reversing the process. This means that instead of moving pure water to non-pure water, we are moving the pure water in the non-pure water over the semipermeable membrane to the pure water side.
We accomplish this in two ways. First we utilize pressure to push the pure water in the non-pure water across the membrane in the pure water side. But this can only happen until the pressure builds to 1,000 pounds per square inch (psi). To alleviate the pressure, we have a drain line that allows the non-pure water that did not have enough time to permeate the membrane to wash down the drain.
The result? Filtration at the molecular level. Reverse osmosis filters down to .001 microns or 1 angstrom. You can expect a 90-95% reduction in all total dissoluble solids including all bacteria and virus’. This is the technology our navy uses to desalinate water so that their sailors can stay abroad for long periods of time without the need to transport/store water.
The old adage goes, “Water! Water! Everywhere! But not a drop to drink!” With reverse osmosis, every drop is drinkable.
