Reverse Osmosis History Click Here.

Reverse osmosis (RO) has found
increasing use as a home treatment
method for contaminated drinking water.
RO is probably best known for its use in
desalination projects (turning seawater
into drinking water); however it is also
effective for treating water quality problems in the home.

RO can reduce the amounts of organics,
inorganics, bacteria
and particulates that can be found
in contaminated drinking water.


RO systems range from $300 to $400 installed. Filter replacement costs
about $60 dollars a year. The main filter of the four costs about $100 dollars
every three or four years. Dollar values are provided as a
rough guide to comparative costs of different systems.
