0 Remineralization is the process of adding the essential minerals back into desalinated or reverse-osmosis treated water. Reverse osmosis is not a selective process with respect to removing contaminants from the water. In addition to removing harmful constituents such as bacteria, heavy metals, etc. it also removes useful nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium...
