You might understandably assume that water filtration and water softening are the same thing, but they are different processes that achieve slightly different but complementary results in terms of improving water quality. Read on to learn more and find out what Hydrosmart water conditioning systems can do for the quality of your water.
What is Water Filtration?
Water filters can neutralise contaminants and remove pollutants from your drinking water using a range of water purification procedures. Activated carbon, reverse osmosis and sediment filtering are the most prevalent ways for eliminating contaminants and achieving chemical reduction. The water filter system is often installed at the point the water supply enters your property, ensuring you can enjoy filtered water throughout.
Contaminants are captured and then either eliminated by system cleansing or contained in a cartridge membrane that must be replaced after a set amount of time, depending on the kind of filter.
What is a Water Softener?
Ion exchange is used by water softeners to extract calcium and magnesium from hard water, reducing limescale damage in your home or business. Resin beads in tanks attract these minerals, which are then replaced with sodium ions to provide soft water. The softener is installed where the water enters your building. Once the water has been softened, it can be distributed throughout your property, giving you soft, limescale-free water.
Clean and Soft Water
As we can see, the combination of a water softener and water filtration will result in clean and soft water, with limescale and chemical reduction. By utilising Hydrosmart systems your water can be both filtered and softened to deliver the very best in water quality.
