Water Softeners vs. Water Filters
Whole-house water softeners and whole-house water filters both address water quality issues, but perform distinctly different functions, and address different types water quality issues.
Whole-House Water Softeners
‘Hard water’ may be a common issue for some Louisville area homeowners, and to treat this problem a whole-house water softener is the solution. ‘Hardness’ in our water supply is due to the presence of minerals such as calcium and magnesium suspended in the water, producing what is known as limescale. Some of the effects of hard water and limescale are soap scum deposits in sinks and tubs, powdery deposits on showerheads and faucet aerators, and dry skin and hair. The list goes on: hard water can also cause the failure of automatic water valves in icemakers, water dispensers, washing machines, and dishwashers, as well as the seals in faucets and other household water controls – it can even reduce the performance of your water heater and shorten its lifespan. Very annoying in many cases, and potentially expensive, in others. By having a whole-house water softener installed, you can remove hard water minerals from your water supply and eliminate these frustrating issues.
Whole-House Water Filters
A whole-house water filter differs from a water softener in that it treats a different spectrum of potential water contaminants. Instead of a focus on removing specific minerals that affect hardness, water filters can treat a broad range of unwanted substances such as pesticides, carbon, and fluoride, among many others. Water filters can also assist in improving taste and odor issues with your household water.
Your water can contain varying levels of:
- Chlorine (fairly common from muncipal water treatment)
- Organic chemicals
- Fertilizers and plant hormones
Point-of-use water filters do a fairly good job of treating your water at one of more locations in your home, however, they are limited in scope compared to what a whole-house filtration system is capable of treating. In addition, keep in mind that point-of-use filters don’t provide the whole-home blanket protection that an inline whole-house water filter can achieve.
Water Conditioners & RO Water Filters
A whole home water conditioner is a water treatment option that affords the benefits of both a whole house water filter and a whole home water softener. It’s important to note that a whole home water conditioner is not as effective as having both of those products individually, but in homes where water quality is not a major concern this is a great option to consider. Our Save Home Heat Company team also installs quality point-of-use reverse osmosis (RO) water filters. Point-of-use RO filters are a good solution for greatly improving water quality in specific areas of your home such as a master bathroom or kitchen, for example.
These are a great addition to any whole house water treatment system, and you’ll enjoy less maintenance on your point-of-use RO water filters when installed into a whole home system, too.
