How effective is Reverse Osmosis filtration compared to other methods?

Reverse osmosis, also known as hyper filtration, is the finest means of filtration available today.

RO is the most convenient and effective method of water filtration.

Reverse osmosis refers to the process of forcing water through a semi permeable membrane under pressure, which is rated at 0.0001 micron (equals to 0.00000004 inch!). This is the technology used to make bottled water; it is also the only technology capable of desalinating sea water, making it into drinking water.

Non-RO water filters are much less effective, and the pore size on these filter media are much bigger, generally 0.5 – 10 micron. They can filter out coarse particles, sediments and elements only up to their micron rating. Anything finer and most dissolved substances cannot be filtered out.

As a result, water is far less clean and safe compare to reverse osmosis filtration.
