In simple terms, “osmosis” means “seeping through.”  For example when you put a tea bag in water, the water seeps into the tea bag and the tea seeps out. 

Reverse osmosis means using pressure to force pure water molecules to seep through a special fabric called a membrane.  The pores of the membrane are so tiny that other larger molecules cannot pass through. 

Reverse osmosis was originally developed for desalination – in other words to turn salt water into fresh water.  However, it was later discovered that the process is extremely effective at removing other impurities.
