What is Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment?

A clean glass of drinking water isn’t always guaranteed. Even homes hooked up to city water aren’t necessarily drinking from the cleanest water possible. And say nothing of well water. A water softener is one easy solution to remove large amounts of calcium from your drinking water. A reverse osmosis water filtration system is another.

A reverse osmosis water filter can drastically remove the number of contaminants in your home’s drinking water.

What is Reverse Osmosis?

The role of the reverse osmosis (RO) system is simply to remove contaminants from your water source. It’s another means of purifying your water by removing ions and other unwanted molecules. A scientific process is undergone in the background of your home’s water filtration system that ultimately supplies clean and reliable drinking water. [While it’s not mandatory, for best results, the RO system should be used in conjunction with a functioning water softener.]

What Does an RO Filter System Do?

What specifically does an RO filter system do? How does it remove unwanted contaminants from your drinking water? The fact is there are contaminants that cause taste and odor issues that aren’t regulated by the EPA. One way to combat these impurities is by installing a modern RO water filter. Water is pushed through a semipermeable membrane that works to remove the contaminants, creating clean drinking water by the process of concentration.

Watts Pure Water Reverse Osmosis Filtration System

At Hudson, we take clean drinking water very seriously, and we stand behind the Watts 4-stage reverse osmosis filtration system. This unit includes sediment, pre-carbon block filter, membrane, and post-GAC inline filter. This specific system breaks contaminants down to 1/10,000 of a micron. In addition to the manufacturer’s warranty, we also extend a 2-year labor warranty.

Are RO Systems Truly Worth the Investment?

The good news is that reverse osmosis system installation costs are very affordable. If your water source is known to have excessive amounts of bacteria or parasites, a reverse osmosis system would be a wise investment to help purify the water coming into your home.


Pure drinking water is never guaranteed, even for homes hooked up to city water. Contaminants can seep into good aquifers and then find their way into your home.
