The Myth of Reverse Osmosis
Filtration Types & What They Filter Out
Sediment Filtration(50µ - 10µ)
Sediment filtration is widely used in both commercial and residential scenario and comes in various forms and sizes. Their main purpose is to remove larger particles that are in the water and block them from entering to the next stage of water filtration. They are relatively inexpensive and have a higher capacity due to the nature of the contaminants that they filter out See our whole line of Fortitude V Sereis Sediment Filtration.Dirt Sediment Rust Silt Sand Scale
Carbon Filtration(10µ - 1µ)
Like Sediment filtration, carbon filtration is also widely used in both commercial and residential scenario and comes in various form and sizes. Carbon filtration can remove contaminants that often associated with taste and smell, hence, are often used in kitchen sink faucet, refrigerator where it serves as a basic type of filtration for drinking water.

Sub Micron Filtration(1µ - 0.5µ)
Sub-Micron filtration is a type of carbon filtration but with a much denser microscopic pore that allows them to adsorb contaminants that a standard carbon filtration can't. They are usually used in a point of use scenario due to their lower capacity but is very effective in removing contaminants that are detrimental to human health.

UF Ultrafiltration (0.1- 0.01µ)
Ultrafiltration is a thin strain of membrane that can have a pore size down to 0.01µ (micron). They are not as popular as reverse osmosis due to manufacturing cost, but they are a great alternative to people who want to have clean water but don't want to strip everything from the water such as calcium and magnesium. They are meant for point of use application due to their lower capacity and are most often time found pair up with carbon and sediment filtration to help extend their usage.

Reverse Osmosis is the most effective and widely accepted water filtration for both residential home and large water treatment plant. Originally designed as an affordable solution to desalinate ocean water and make them potable, they can remove contaminants all the way down to 0.0001µ and produce pure water as a result.
