In order to better understand the term Reverse Osmosis, let’s start out by defining Osmosis. Osmosis is produced by nature and membrane technology by the passing of one solvent with low concentration through a semi-permeable membrane into a solvent of higher concentrate in attempt to balance or dilute the more concentrated side.

In Reverse Osmosis, pressure is exerted on the concentrated side to force the water molecules through the membrane to the pure water side. This is the opposite of Osmosis, thus the term Reverse Osmosis.
In water purification, Reverse Osmosis is commonly used in residential and commercial applications. Private boats all the way up to large ships use Reverse Osmosis for desalination of sea water as well. Reverse Osmosis can also be used to purify other liquids with undesirable purity.
