Water Softeners vs. Water Filters
While both whole-house water softeners and whole-house water filters both address water quality issues, they perform far different tasks. Once you have a better idea of your potential water quality issues, it will be important to understand the function of these different products before diving in. In some cases, a combination of both products might be the best approach to address your full scope of water quality concerns. Accurate water testing will direct the discussion.
Whole-House Water Softeners
Denver area homeowners may be familiar with ‘hard water,’ which is the result of minerals such as calcium and magnesium being present in high levels in your water. Hard water, which often leaves behind its companion, limescale, can be a major annoyance and cause a host of unwanted effects. These issues can range from soap scum deposits in your sinks and tubs, powdery deposits around faucets and showerheads, to dry skin and hair. But that’s just the beginning: Limescale from hard water can cause premature failure of water valves in dishwashers, washing machines, icemakers and water dispensers, as well as causing seal and gasket failure in faucet, shower and other water controls. Lastly, hardness can impact the performance and shorten the life of one of your most important plumbing appliances, your water heater – even the very copper piping that delivers water all around your home.
A properly sized, professionally installed whole-house water softener will remove the minerals that cause hard water, saving you countless levels of aggravation and helping to avoid a variety of costly repairs.
Whole-House Water Filters
While whole-house water softeners deal with the minerals that cause hard water, a whole-house water filter addresses a wide range of other substances that may be found in your water supply. These potential contaminants include chlorine, arsenic, rust, pesticides, among many others. Whole-house water filters can even address taste and odor issues. A whole-home water filtration system can be tailored to remove the specific contaminants present in your water.
Your water can contain varying levels of:
- Chlorine (fairly common from municipal water treatment)
- Organic chemicals
- Fertilizers and plant hormones
Some homeowners enjoy the benefits of quality point-of-use water filters installed at one or more taps. While these products can do a good job, they are limited in the range of contaminants they can address in comparison to the whole-house water filters, and they address water delivered only to specific areas of your home, as opposed to the blanket coverage provided by a whole-home system.
Water Conditioners & RO Water Filters
Whole home water conditioners are a water treatment option that combines the benefits of having both a whole house water filter and a water softener. Albeit less effective than having each of those products independently, a whole home water conditioner still provides improved water quality. This is a great option to consider when water quality issues aren’t of major concern, yet the benefits of both a filter and softener are desirable. You can also depend on our team to install high quality point-of-use reverse osmosis (RO) water filters. These are great filtration solutions for a wide range of spots around your home.
These point-of-use RO water filters are especially useful in kitchens and master bathrooms where you see a majority of water use. RO water filters are a great addition to your whole house water treatment system, and provide exceptionally clean water. When used together with a whole home water system, these point-of-use products won’t require maintenance as often.
