R.O stands for Reverse Osmosis. Reverse Osmosis is a process with which we can purify any liquid with the help of a permeable membrane. This name is used for a water purifying unit that we use within our homes these days. An R.O does not only purify the water but also makes it sweet in taste. This is all because of the membrane positioned in it which makes all the dirt and impurities get removed from water before allowing it to be bought in use for drinking. If you have got an R.O positioned in your house, it will require servicing after some time. If you call a mechanic for this purpose, you might be charged with a service charge. If you wish to service your R.O at home yourself, you can easily do this adopting these easy steps:-
