Reverse Osmosis FAQs: Curated by One of the Leading Water Purifier Companies

15th Sep admin

Reverse osmosis, popularly known as RO, is the most advanced water purification technology used for domestic purposes. If you are planning to buy an RO water purifier, you are bound to have questions such as how RO works and what other water purification technologies are available. 

As one of the leading water purifier companies, we answer some of the frequently asked questions so that you can choose the right RO water purifier: 

Check out FAQs on RO water purifier, its mechanism, price and other important aspects 


  • What is reverse osmosis? 

To understand reverse osmosis, you must first understand the principles of osmosis. In simple terms, osmosis can be defined as the naturally occurring process whereby water is transported through a membrane. Osmosis ensures that all living organisms have adequate water pressure. 

In the human body, osmosis plays a very important role, in getting nutrients out of food and getting waste products out of the blood. In the biological osmosis process, the solvent naturally moves through a membrane. 

In reverse osmosis, pressure is applied to push the water through a semipermeable membrane. The water with a high concentration of contaminants moves to a low concentration of contaminants. But the contaminated water must pass through a filter. The contaminants get trapped in the filter and only let clean water pass through. 

  • What is the difference between RO and a regular water filter? 

Ordinary water filters only screen physical contaminants such as dirt and sediment particles. They do not remove dissolved chemical contaminants, biological contaminants and other impurities. In ordinary filters, all the dirt gets accumulated on the surface of the filter and thus clogging it. In RO water purifiers, only clean water goes through the membrane and impurities drain away with the rejected water. This keeps the surface of the membrane free from contaminants.

  • What are the benefits of RO? 

RO water purifiers offer myriad benefits such as 

  1. They remove microbiological contaminants such as viruses, bacteria, fungus and parasites. These contaminants cause diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea and typhoid.
  2. They remove metallic impurities such as nitrates, heavy metals and pesticides that make water unfit for drinking. 
  3. Combining RO water purification with UV or UF can give you water free of any form of contaminants. Our water purifiers come in a combination of RO+UV, RO+UF and RO+UF+TDS Controller + Essential Minerals Technology. 
  • Does RO water purifier improve the taste? 

The impurities can make the water taste salty. By removing Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), RO water purifiers can enhance the taste of the water. For better taste, our water purifiers have Essential Minerals Technology that helps in retaining essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, copper and zinc. These minerals give water a sweeter and better taste. 

  • How often should the RO filters and membrane be changed? 

The frequency of changing filters and membranes depends on the water quality. If the water has high TDS levels, filters need to be changed more often.

  • Is RO sufficient enough? 

There is no debate that RO is one of the most advanced water purification systems. It removes harmful chemicals and bio-degradable waste and bacteria but it also removes useful essential minerals present in the water. It is for this reason that all our water purifiers combine RO with other technologies so that you can get safe and mineral-enriched water. Look for the following features when buying our RO water purifier: 

  1.  Essential Mineral Technology: This ensures that minerals such as calcium, magnesium, copper and zinc are retained in the water. 
  2. Black Silica: Our select RO water purifiers come with Black Silica that is considered to improve immunity.
  3. Carbon: With NSF-Approved Carbon inside, our Crystal water purifier gives you antioxidant-rich water. 
  • What is the price of RO? 

The price of water purifiers depends on various factors such as the number of water purification stages, the material of the body and storage capacity.
