The RO membrane method was first performed in 1748 by Jean-Antoine Nolet. The RO method remained a laboratory method for 200 years. In 1949, the University of California in the United States first used the RO method with membrane membranes to purify seawater.
Later research by this University and the University of Florida led to the successful production of drinking water from seawater in the mid-1950s, but the volume of drinking water thus still remained inefficient for commercial use. Over time, with the gradual advancement of technology until the late 2001, 15,200 drinking water production projects which used this method were implemented worldwide.
Why do we need a home water purifier?
All people in the world should use a home water purifier to purify their drinking water at home, which includes water for drinking, making tea and coffee, cooking and even washing vegetables and fruits.
But why water purifiers? To date, two things are done on sanitary water that is supplied by water organizations and distributed through water supply networks throughout the world:
Through physical methods (such as sedimentation ponds and the use of garbage collectors) some suspended matter in the water is removed.
By using chemicals (mainly chlorine and its derivatives) disinfection is performed.
But this amount of purification and disinfection is not enough for that part of water that is used for human consumption because harmful substances that are present in water (such as nitrate, nitrite, arsenic, agricultural pesticides, heavy metals, etc.) are not removed from the water by this method and enter the human body. But water purifiers with reverse osmosis filter are able to remove harmful substances dissolved in water so that the water coming out of these devices is free of any harmful substances
