Does Reverse Osmosis Kill Minerals?

Unfortunately, it is not possible for a water treatment product using the reverse osmosis technology to distinguish between harmful substances and beneficial minerals. Our goal with reverse osmosis is to remove all harmful substances from the water and in the process, useful minerals disappear, too. The principal purpose here is to purge the water we drink of minerals that are harmful to human health. And also we almost get all minerals we need from our diet. One must drink 10 glasses of milk, a bottle of soda or a tub of water at the same time to cover their daily mineral needs solely from liquids.

As in A. O. Smith’s water treatment products, a water treatment product with a well-designed reverse osmosis system effectively removes all harmful bacteria and viruses, heavy metals, agricultural and pesticide residues and all other harmful substances that can be present in drinking water. You can get cleaner water as long as you renew your filters as prescribed by the manufacturer.
