Water Softeners vs. Water Filters
Water quality can be addressed by both whole-house water softeners and inline whole-house water filters, but each device solves a different type of water quality concern.
Whole-House Water Softeners
By using a water softener, you can address one of the common water quality issues that a Lafayette area homeowner may face—hard water. ‘Hard water’ is the result of minerals like calcium and magnesium being present in your water supply, often leaving behind what is know as ‘limescale.’ The effects of hard water can include failure or shortening the lifespan of water valves in a wide variety of home appliances (icemakers, washing machines dishwashers, faucet seals…) to soap scum deposits in tubs and sinks, and powdery deposits on shower and faucet aerators.
In addition to contributing to dry skin and hair, hard water can also have a negative impact on your water heater’s performance and durability. Hard water can get expensive, in cases where levels are too high. The right water softener, matched with the needs of your home, will remove the ‘hard’ limescale minerals, leaving your water ‘softer’ and safer for you and your home.
Whole-House Water Filters
A whole-house water filter addresses a different and wider range of chemicals that may be present in your water. Chlorine, rust, and pesticides are just a few of things that the right whole-house water filter can eliminate from your water supply. Inline, while-house water filtration systems are custom-tailored for the specific needs of you and your home. For example, a water filter can resolve rust, taste and odor issues, and also address particulate filtration.
Substances that could be found in your water:
- Chlorine (fairly common for water treatment)
- Organic chemicals
- Plant hormones
- Pesticides and fertilizers
Point-of-use water filters can deliver improved quality drinking water at the tap, but the scope of potential contaminants covered by these products is much narrower than what a quality whole-house water can provide. In addition, whole-house filters cover your entire home, fully safeguarding you in all locations, along with all of your plumbing investments.
Water Conditioners & RO Water Filters
While having both a whole house water filter and water softener provides the greatest level of effectiveness, a whole home water conditioner is a great option in homes that don’t have major water quality issues. You will still enjoy the benefits of improved water quality as well as the benefits of a filter and softener.
Our well-versed plumbing department as installs high quality point-of-use reverse osmosis (RO) water filters. A great addition to a number of areas in your home such as the kitchen and oft-used bathrooms, a whole home water conditioner provides a boost to the cleanliness and purity of the water you use. When added to a whole home water systems, these point-of-use RO water filters need less maintenance, too!
