Water softening, water filtration and water purification – what do
they all mean? If you are wondering what type of water purification system
is right for your home, it is important to understand the difference.
While all of these processes are similar, they do address different problems.
For this reason, we encourage you to
schedule a free water analysis with Puronics today.
Water Softeners – What They Do & How They Work
When you have hard water in your home, you may find that soap is less effective
– leaving you with rings in your bathtub, dull hair and skin and
even spotty dishes. When you install a
water softener, all of the minerals and contaminants that cause your water to become
“hard” will be removed. These softeners use salt as the primary
chemical agent in modifying the properties of your water.
Not only will this help you to save money on laundry detergent and soap,
since soft water will make these products more effective, but it will
also extend the life of your appliances and plumbing. Scale build-up in
your pipes can keep your appliances from working as effectively as they
should be, but a soft water system can fix this by reducing the amount
of “hard” minerals in your water.
Water Filtration Systems – Are They More Effective?
The term “water filter” can refer to any number of products,
including those that filter the water throughout your whole house, those
that filter at point-of-use and those that use
reverse osmosis. While similar to water softeners,
water filters are designed to provide clean drinking water. Some of the contaminants
that a filter will remove include metals, byproducts and sediment.
Neither a water softener or a water filter is necessarily more effective
than the other – they simply use different processes to address
different problems. For example, if you are tired of dealing with lime
scale buildup in your home, a soft water system would be right for you.
If, on the other hand, your water tastes or smells strange, you may be
better off using a whole house water filter.
How Water Purification is Different from Filtration
Although water filtration can eliminate most of the contaminants in your
water, there are still some harmful pollutants that can be left behind.
When you invest in a
water purification system, you can benefit from reduced hardness and better quality water
that is safer for drinking and cooking. If your current water filtration
system isn’t fitting your needs, water purification may be right for you.
