What is reverse osmosis?
Reverse osmosis (RO) has become a common home water treatment method for drinking water that might be contaminated. The reverse osmosis process requires a driving force to push the fluid, such as feed water, through the RO membrane. One of the best methods of water filtration is reverse osmosis. This is so unique that it has been referred to as hyper-filtration. Drinking Water goes through a RO membrane that can remove almost anything. To ensure the membrane works properly, there are also pre-filtration units, as well as a storage tank for the RO purified water. This Reverse Osmosis system is not as costly as many think, but it could take up space. It's a miniature drinking water treatment plant below your kitchen sink! http://www.allgoodwaterfilters.com/06/2007/reverse-osmosis-water-filters-explained.html

How can you remove sodium from drinking water by Ultrafiltration process?
There are two ways to remove sodium from drinking water--ion exchange and reverse osmosis. Ion exchange uses a special resin that's formed into beads. You pass water through a cartridge full of these beads, and the resin exchanges the sodium in the water for the potassium in the beads. The other way is reverse osmosis. There's a membrane in the reverse osmosis machine. When you pump water at high pressure up to the membrane, the water goes through without the sodium ions in it. Needless to say, the ion exchange cartridges are cheaper, but reverse osmosis works better because it strains out all sorts of other things too. Reverse osmosis works so well you can put dirty, germ-infested sea water into the machine, like the Army does, and get clean, safe drinking water out of it.
