Its a process to filter water.... GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND. The process would not have fluoride in it, but I don't know if it removes the fluoride. I can't use on my water here because of the intense rust in the old pipes..

Stop the religious garbage and date threads. Your world is f**ked UP and its time to UNFUCK it. And it can only be unfucked by realizing YOU ARE GOD MANIFEST

Scratchinghead from what I recall it removes everything - sterile to the point of leaching minerals out of your body if no minerals are added to it after the process.

It's also quite possible I'm wrong Anon

EDIT: totally possible LOL that's distillation

It is a process, so it cannot be something that has something in it.

Osmosis is if you have a crate full of water and in the middle a membrane, a special kind. That will allow some particles but not others to go through.
Then for example if you put a lot of salt in one half of the crate, then on the other side of the membrane some particles might go trough the membrane to the part with the salty water. So both sides of the membrane have proportionally the same amount of salt and those particles.
It seems this happens in nature.

that is distillation, not reverse osmosis.

R/O membranes look like rolled up saran wrap. They are a molecular sieve that lets H2O molecules pass but not the vast majority of dissolved solids. Let's say you input two gallons of 100 ppm water into a R/O system. The output will be (roughly) 1 gallon of "saltier" water containing around 190 ppm TDS water which is the "effluent" that is discarded, and roughly 1 gallon of 10 ppm TDS water that is the product. Rejection rates amongst R/O systems vary and this is only an example. Usually, 2 gallons of water are discarded for every gallon of product water produced. Most R/O systems require hmoderately high pressure ot operate and the more efficient ones are fed by a booster pump at 150 - 250 psi to achieve higher efficiencies (i.e. lower effluent rates)

Hope that helps!

Oh, and Fluoride would be removed from the input water as would most other dissolved matter. Prefilters take out the undissolved particulates. R/O water is safe to drink in moderation since the food we eat has lots of salts that are easily dissolved in the R/O water once in our system, making it more absorbable by our bodies. If you drank only R/O water on a hot dry day and ate no food, it *could* strip minerals from your body, but almost no one does that so don't worry about drinking it. If anything, our bodies have WAY too many salts. Your urine should be clear or nearly clear. If it isn't then there are no issues drinking R/O water.

My yacht has an 800 gallon a day reverse osmosis watermaker.
I can drink seawater, never come ashore except for coke and hookers.
