Can You Drink Softened Water?

Water softeners use sodium or potassium ions to eliminate calcium and magnesium from your tap water. While most soft water is perfectly safe to drink, high levels of sodium may present health effects for some people. Our technicians can inspect your home to help you make the best decision for your water softener installation.

Why Invest In A Reverse Osmosis System?

A reverse osmosis system purifies water by forcing it through a semipermeable membrane. These types of systems eliminate the highest number of contaminants in residential water. In fact, with a reverse osmosis system installation, you can remove 99% of dissolved particles in your tap water.

How Does A Water Softener Work?

Water softening systems are designed to eliminate hard water minerals from your residential tap water. The two most common minerals in hard water are magnesium and calcium. With a water softener, water from your main line enters a water tank where resin beads attract and hold onto hard minerals. Soft water is then delivered to faucets and fixtures throughout your home.

Difference Between Water Softening And Water Conditioning

Both water softeners and water conditioning systems are water treatment devices. In general, water softeners function to remove hard minerals from your water. Water conditioning systems eliminate contaminants that cause off-smells like chlorine. No matter your water goals, we at Environment Water Filtration have the water treatment system installation that’s right for your home.

How To Tell When Your Water Filter Needs Replacing

Just like every home appliance, your water treatment system requires routine maintenance to stay efficient. Depending on your system – whole-home water filters, reverse osmosis, etc. – you may need to replace your filter every 3-6 months. Our technicians can inspect your system and walk you through the right maintenance schedule for your filtration system. Reach out to our team!
