What Is "Hard Water"?
You've probably heard the term "hard water" before, especially here in Florida where our water is considered very hard. Water that is "hard" contains a large amount of minerals, which while not dangerous to health do still affect the water's quality.
Hard water can cause a number of problems ranging from dry and itchy skin and hair to mineral buildup and corrosion of your plumbing fixtures, pipes, and appliances.
How Do Water Softeners Work?
A water softener essentially removes water calcium in a process called ion exchange. The two most common ion-exchange methods are softening and deionization. Softening is used primarily as a pretreatment method to reduce water hardness before reverse osmosis processing.
Deionization beads ion exchange either hydrogen ions for cations or hydroxyl ions for anions. The hydrogen ion from the cation exchanger will unify with the hydroxyl ion of the anion exchanger to form pure water.
What Are the Advantages of a Water Softener?
Water softener installation can help you reap the following benefits:
- Healthier skin, hair, and nails
- Easier lathering of soap and shampoo
- Cleaner laundry and dishes
- Longer lasting appliances, including water heaters, dishwashers, and washing machines
- And more
Why You Should Consider Installing a Water Purifier
While our water here in Florida is generally safe, that doesn't mean that it is as pure as it could be. It's a good idea to consider adding a water purification system to your home. Why?
Purification systems reduce the number of potentially harmful chemicals and minerals present in your water supply, such as:
- And possibly chromium-6 depending on what type and brand of purifier you use
These are just some of the many minerals and organic chemicals that can be present in municipal water.
Signs You Need a Water Purification System
Wondering if you need a water purification system? You can tell a lot by the appearance of your water. If your water is foggy, or a color other than clear, that's a pretty big indication that your water quality is subpar.
Municipalities occasionally clean piping which causes a rusty color, for example, and most municipalities use chlorine and other chemicals to treat water. Excessive chemicals in water can make it taste poorly, not to mention that's just putting more chemicals in your body than is natural.
If you get your water from a well instead of from the city, a purification system is still a very important measure to take to ensure a healthy water supply. Water pumped from a well does not get tested on a schedule like municipal water, so purifiers may be added as a preventative measure.
