disagree  Susana Martin Dudoignon: Respectfully, I don't think it's a play on the word 'pure'; I'd rather say it's an idiom in English, a way of saying it. In Spanish I would simply say 'Hechos' as title. Nothing more.

  -> Respectfully though, why have they used "hechos puros" in the above ucm.es reference?

A Reverse Osmosis filter is designed to remove the minerals in water. You might think drinking water that is truly “pure” is the most healthful water you can drink. But, if that were true, then why is there no place on earth where water without minerals can be found? Even the most remote and unpolluted mountain springs have natural occurring minerals. It is these mineral that give water its taste. More important than taste, is the healthful benefits these minerals have for our bodies.

So in your search for “pure” drinking water, remember that trace minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium are an essential part of that water.









Six facts about osmosis

Osmosis is the movement of water through a cell membrane.


The pressure that moves water in and out of cells is called water potential.


Water moves from a region with a high water potential to a region with a lower water potential.


Pure water has a high water potential and so water is very likely to move into cells if they have water around them.


Solutes lower water potential and so cells have a lower water potential than pure water.


Plant cells take in water by osmosis until the cell wall pushes back on the cell's contents with the same pressure.

agree  M. C. Filgueira: Sí, yo también optaría por apartarme del original y utilizar un título general que suene bien en castellano, como "Ventajas y desventajas/inconvenientes de la ósmosis inversa", "Características de la ósmosis inversa" o cualquier otra cosa por el estilo.
