What to do about HARD CITY water!
A whole-house filtration and conditioning system treats all the water entering a house. These systems are typically installed at point of entry, meaning your entire home would be filtered and treated to be as good if not better than bottled drinking water.
Whole home filtration systems typically use a combination of physical and chemical filtration methods to remove impurities from the water. They may use sediment filters to remove particles and debris, activated carbon filters to remove chlorine and other chemicals, and other types of filters to remove specific contaminants, such as iron, sulfur, or fluoride not to mention feces and pharmaceuticals.
On the other hand, water conditioning systems are designed to modify the chemical properties of water to make it more suitable for specific applications. Some of these systems use a process called ion exchange. Perfect example of this is water softening. In this example, a water softener exchanges the hardness minerals for sodium.
By coupling filtration and conditioning technologies together, whole home water treatment systems can provide a comprehensive solution for improving the quality of the water throughout the home. These systems can provide benefits such as improved taste and odor, reduced sediment and scale buildup, and protection against waterborne contaminants. They can also help extend the life of plumbing and appliances by reducing corrosion and mineral buildup within the pipe.
