Why Do I Need a Water Softener and Filtration System for My Jacksonville Area Home?

Every homeowner deserves clean drinking water. And though the water in most homes is filtered by city regulations, there can still be some contaminants that are not removed in the process. And if you get your drinking water from a private source, such as a well, it may not be safe from microbiological, chemical, or other types of harmful contaminants.

Here Are a Few Common Reasons Homeowners Decide to Purchase a Water Softener and Filtration System For Their Home:

  • Water smells or tastes like chlorine or other chemicals

  • Valves, pipes, and other fixtures are showing signs of corrosion or hard water scale

  • Filtered water can improve the health of your family and pets

  • A filtration system can extend the life of plumbing pipes and fixtures

  • Organic chemicals and chlorine are both proven health hazards often found in unfiltered water. A filtration system removes them from your home’s water.

  • A filtration system can remove/reduce many volatile organic chemicals (VOC) as well as pesticides, herbicides, chlorine, benzene, trihalomethane, compounds, radon, solvents, and hundreds of other man-made chemicals often found in water.

  • A filtered water system ensures you have safe and pure water throughout your home to drink, shower/bathe in, and for washing your clothes.

  • Save money on bottled water, since you can drink from the tap of a filtered water system.

How Do Water Softeners and Filtration Systems Work?

Water Softeners

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.

Water Filtration Systems

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.
