Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water purification process that uses a partially permeable membrane to separate ions, unwanted molecules and larger particles from drinking water.
Reverse osmosis can remove many types of dissolved and suspended chemical species as well as biological ones (principally bacteria) from water, and is used in both industrial processes and the production of potable water.
Reverse osmosis treatment systems have the ability to remove up to 99 percent of all dissolved solids (TDS) as well as the taste and odor of chlorine from tap water. This will improve the taste of your products dramatically.
A reverse osmosis system produces delicious water for pennies per gallon which can save you money over buying bottled water. Not to mention the convenience of having it available at the kitchen tap.
Hard water is the number one cause of espresso machines breaking down. The minerals from hard water build up in the valves, boiler, and shower heads in espresso machines preventing the flow of water. Mineral deposits can also cake onto the level sensors and heating elements causing over heating which can destroy very expensive components.
