what makes a water filtration system reverse osmosis??

I run a restaurant. Corporate is making all restaurants change to a certain filtration system I was thinking of installing the new one under my kitchen sink. It is an everpure industrial water filtration system designed to filter all the water in a restaurant without changing its 4 canisters for 6 months.. I think that it may do the trick for filtering my house water for over a year// EV9328-05 Everpure It is a $1200 restaurant system for free.. I looked it up and it says nothing about reverse osmosis. I guess my question is isnt a filtration system a filtration system or is there a difference between reverse osmosis and not???????

Here is a great article on How Reverse Osmosis Systems Work .
I'm going to move this to the General Hardware/Equipment section.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Give me a 0 ppm reading on a TDS meter and I'd call anything a "water filter"

The EV9328-05 Everpure lists closer to $800 although retails for over $1300. It has 3 MC 1/2 micron cartridges which is essentially works like an RO filter but won't remove everything like RO/DI does.

If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
