Removing Salt from Water

Reverse Osmosis can treat salty water?

I would like to know if both the Reverse Osmosis and the Distilled Water Systems remove salt from the treated water. Has a test been conducted that I might see the results of water before treatment and after treatment? thanks.

The answer is Yes.

Both technologies, Reverse Osmosis and/or Water Distillation would remove the salt.

I’m not sure, but it appears that you do have a concern on water which is treated by a water softener, using sodium.

This is based on tests performed by the WQA (Water Quality Association).

The Water Quality Association is the international trade association representing the household, commercial, industrial, and small community water treatment industry. Among the systems that can treat salty water are Reverse Osmosis water filters and water distillers.

Reverse Osmosis

When looking for water filters by methods of reverse osmosis, common sense calls to look for units that were certified and validated for the WQA GOLD SEAL reverse osmosis S-300 certification.
