Water Softeners vs. Water Filters
Water softeners and water filters are both excellent tools to help improve your home’s water quality. However, each of these systems treat different issues and types of contaminants. In brief, water softeners treat ‘hardness’ issues that result from limescale buildup, while water filtration systems can remove a wide variety of other potential contaminants that may be present in varying levels in your water supply.
Whole House Water Softeners
‘Hard water’ can lead to a number of problems for both your household items and your family. Limescale buildup of the common culprits calcium and magnesium can cause soap scum and powdery deposits to show up in sinks and tubs, or on faucet and shower aerators. Not only are these an eyesore and a pain to clean, but water hardness can also impact the lifespan of various appliances. The water valves in ice makers, dishwashers, and washing machines, for example, can be damaged by this buildup, and the performance and lifespan of your water heater can also be negatively impacted. Add to that potentially drier skin and hair, and less effective soap products all around your home, and hard water starts to look like an issue that shouldn’t be ignored, if present in significant levels.
Whole House Water Filters
In contrast to a water softener, which treats hardness, a whole house water filtration system has the ability to remove a wide variety of other products that may be present in your water supply. From chlorine and fluoride to a range of heavy metals and other potential contaminants, a properly specified water filter can be just what’s needed to solve specific water quality concerns. Whole house water filters can also address taste and odor issues, as well.
Potentially Harmful Contaminants That May Be Present in Your Home’s Water Include:
- Calcium & magnesium (hardness)
- Chlorine (fairly common in municipal water treatment)
- Organic chemicals
- Pesticides and fertilizers
- Plant hormones
Water Conditioners & RO Water Filters
Whole house water conditioners are a versatile water treatment product that offer some of the benefits of both whole home water filters and water softeners in a single package. When improved water quality is your goal and there are no specific overwhelming issues with your home’s water supply, a high quality water conditioner could be just the right fit for you and your home. There are a variety of water conditioners available, so make sure to perform your due diligence and learn all about your water conditioner options before making a purchasing decision.
Our expert plumbing team also installs high quality, point-of-use reverse osmosis (RO) water filters, which are particularly popular in areas such as kitchens and master bathrooms. Point-of-use RO filters can be a great addition to virtually any whole house water quality system, providing you the cleanest water possible. When used in tandem with a whole-house system, your RO filter won’t require routine maintenance as often, which is a nice bonus.
Water Testing to Ensure the Highest Water Quality for Your Erie Home
No two homes and families are identical, so it’s important to speak with a specialist to find the best solution for your needs. While there are certain issues that are particularly common in our area, the first step is to have your water tested. At Save Home Heat Company, we provide reliable in-house water testing for the most common issues, such as hardness, pH, and several common metals. For more in-depth analysis, we also offer outside laboratory testing to cover a very broad range of other elements or material that may be present in your water.
In many circumstances, a single product may be sufficient to solve your problem. However, certain situations may require both products working together to provide the most efficient and long lasting solution. For instance, a home that has very hard water and also significant concerns with heavy metals may be best served by a dedicated water softener and a water filtration system focusing on the other potential contaminants that have been identified. Whatever your potential water quality issues, you can count on our team at Save Home Heat Company to provide you with advice and recommendations that will be effective stand the test of time.
