Water Softeners vs. Water Filters
It’s true that water softeners and water filtration systems both tackle water quality concerns, but these two classes of products focus on treating different types of contaminants and address separate issues with your home’s water supply.
Whole-House Water Softeners
A common issue for many Broomfield area homeowners is that of ‘hard water.’ Hard water can cause a variety of ‘limescale’ problems ranging from soap scum deposits in sinks and tubs, dry skin and hair, to powdery deposits on faucet and shower aerators. In addition, hard water can shorten the lifespan of automatic water valves in icemakers, water dispensers, dishwashers and washing machines, even the seals in your sink and shower flow controls. Lastly, hard water can negatively impact the performance of your water heater.
By having a whole-house water softener professionally installed, you can treat the hardness problem at the root. A high quality water softener removes the minerals in your water that cause hard water—typically magnesium and calcium compounds—and leaves you with household water that’s safer for both you and your home.
Whole-House Water Filters
Whereas water softeners focus on removing specific minerals to treat the hardness problem, whole-house (inline) water filters can address a much wider spectrum of concerns. Inline water filters remove residential water supply contaminants like rust, pesticides, and other undesirable chemicals that may or may not be a health concern, depending on levels they are present in, and the homeowner. Plus, whole-house water filters can treat taste and odor issues with your water.
Your water can contain varying levels of:
- Chlorine (fairly common for water treatment)
- Organic chemicals
- Pesticides and fertilizers
- Plant hormones
- And more
Some homeowners enjoy some of the benefits of a whole-home water filtration system from point-of-use water filters. While many of these are great at what they do, our team recommends considering a whole-house water filtration system, which can address a wider range of potential concerns, while covering your entire home.
Choosing the Right Products for Your Home
If you want to find out if a water softener or water filtration system makes sense for you to consider for your home, the first step is to have your water tested. Our team at Save Home Heat Company provides in-house water quality testing, as well as outside laboratory testing if a more in-depth analysis is required. Once we identify the chemical and mineral levels in your water, we can provide you with low-pressure recommendations to resolve issues that may be a concern.
In some cases, just a water softener or an inline water filter may be the proper solution. In other situations, using both products in tandem may be the best course of action to consider. Our expert plumbing department takes all factors into consideration when offering our advice, and always works with your best interests in mind to find a solution to your water quality concerns that you’ll be completely satisfied with, now and in the future.
