This reverse osmosis system connects to a house COLD water pipe for a water supply. The system includes
replaceable sediment/carbon pre-filters and a membrane. The sediment/carbon pre-filter removes
sand, dirt, rust particles and other particulates as well as chlorine and
The EcoFlo Reverse Osmosis System gives you a continuous supply of sparkling clear, delicious water for drinking, cooking, hydroponics etc. Foods will look better and taste better too.
Osmosis is a process in nature that allows fluid of a lower concentration to pass through a semi-permeable membrane into a fluid of a higher concentration (See Figure 1).
Because of the difference in salt concentration, pure water flows through the membrane as though a pressure were being applied to it (Figure 2).
The effective driving force is called the osmotic pressure. As a rough guide, the osmotic pressure is equal to about 1 psi (pounds per square inch) per 100 ppm Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). When enough pressure is applied to the solution with a higher concentration it can then pass through the membrane into the solution of lower concentration. (See Figure 3). This is the basis of Reverse Osmosis.
