IS R.O. WATER GOOD FOR HEALTH? WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE?
R.O. is known as Reverse Osmosis. Some problems may arise, when water is purified through this technology. In the middle of a water tank, divide it into two through ‘semi permissible membrane’. Fill up one side of the tank with salt water enriched more with salt and the other half with less salt water. In few hours, same kind of water will come on both the sides. This is known as ‘osmosis’.
If you pass the salty water by pressure through the semi permeable membrane, the salt cannot pass through. But water will pass through. This is known as ‘Reverse Osmosis. If you give energy only, this action will happen.
There will be more salt in the water available in many places and with metal toxic substances. The technology to clear off them is R.O.
In the R.O. water, important minerals also will be removed along with the toxic materials. But we get these minerals from milk food products and not from the water.
However, important problem is wastage of water. 80% of water is wasted in cities. This is a blessed technology, for purifying the ground water and the sea water. But this technology is a waste, while using in the houses. Therefore this R.O. technology is banned by the National Green Tribunal in the houses in Delhi. There is nothing wrong in drinking the water but wastage of water is wrong.
