Water softeners remove minerals such as calcium and magnesium that contribute to hard water and those horrible rings in your bathtub, soap scum buildup, and clogged pipes.
So how does a water softener work?
As water is forced through a bed filled with beads covered with sodium ions, the calcium and other chemicals that make water “hard” then exchange their ions with the positively charged sodium ions. When this happens, the calcium is no longer in your water.
A water filtration system helps remove contaminants and dissolved solids from the water you drink, shower, and cook with.
In addition to improving the taste and smell of your water, a water filter also has the important job of reducing or removing harmful contaminants from your water such as lead, chlorine, and bacteria that can make it unsafe to drink.
Although a water softener may help make your water less hard, it does not make it a cleaner or safer drink. Water softeners do not filter water, they only remove calcium and magnesium minerals to address hard water. In order to remove contaminants, so water is safer for drinking, cooking, and showering — you’ll need a water filtration system, even if you already have a water softener installed.
