Reverse Osmosis Water Filters
A reverse osmosis system is one of the most extensive methods of filtration.
It removes 98% of dissolved solids, which makes it healthier to drink.

Reverse osmosis filters remove contaminants from drinking water by pushing them through a membrane with tiny pores that blocks particles larger than water molecules.
Typically, they also come equipped with a carbon filter that helps with initial purification and extends the useful lifetime of the reverse osmosis filter itself. The carbon filter also reduces the levels of some contaminants that cannot be removed by reverse osmosis alone, such as disinfection byproducts and volatile organic compounds.
Reverse osmosis reduces chemical contaminants that carbon filters cannot effectively reduce, such as:
Nitrate - causes birth defects or, in higher doses, can be immediately toxic to babies.
Perchlorate - changes the thyroid function and harms children’s brain development.
Arsenic - impairs children’s growth, brain development and immune system.
Hexavalent chromium - can have impacts that children are more susceptible to, such as harm to the reproductive system and risk of cancer.
Reverse osmosis reduces other contaminants that can also be reduced by a carbon filter, such as lead, which harms children’s brain development, and the toxic fluorinated chemicals known as PFAS.
