3 Huge Differences Between A Water Filter And A Water Softener

water faucetWhen choosing between a water softener and a water filtration system, the most common question that needs to be answered is: what is the final quality of water that I get? Below I will outline 3 major differences between these types of systems and what kind of results you should expect.

Water Softeners

Water Softeners removes the hardness from the water. It removes contaminants such as calcium and magnesium. Water Softeners uses salt to modifying the properties of water.

Water Filters

Water filters refer to any system that removes contaminants from water. They remove:

  • Metals such as arsenic, iron, and copper
  • By-products from industrial and pharmaceuticals, such as pesticides and prescription drugs
  • Sediment and other organic material

1. These Systems Treat Water Differently

Water filters removes contaminants from your water, while water softeners removes minerals from the water that causes scale.

2. The Technology Is Different

Water filters removes contaminants by utilizing advance media beds. Water softeners uses salt and ion-exchange resins to remove calcium and magnesium from your water.

3. These Systems Has different Maintenance Needs

Water softeners need to be maintained on regular basis. One of the major maintenance tasks that need to be done is adding more salt. Yet, on the other hand, water filtration systems don't need much maintenance, but they are more expensive to install.
