The home water treatment system you choose will depend on your goals. Some water treatment systems methods only remove the physical impurities of your tap water, some remove chemical impurities, and others will remove both types of impurities. Here are some of the most popular home water treatment systems and what they can do for you.
Home Water Treatment System Options
- Water Softeners – If you have tap water in your California home that leaves a white residue on glasses and dishes, you may need a water softener. This type of home water system turns hard water soft by removing the high level of minerals in it. Once the calcium and magnesium are removed from the water, it offers a much better quality to drink and use.
- Reverse Osmosis – Homes that contain particulate matter in the water may benefit from a reverse osmosis home water treatment system. Reverse osmosis removes all of the inorganic solids from your home’s drinking water by utilizing a semipermeable membrane to filter the particles. This type of home water system makes the water taste so much better.
- Salt Free Water Conditioner – A salt free water conditioner is an alternative to a water softener. Conditioners use different techniques to ‘alter’ the behavior of the water without removing the hardness. A conditioning system often can help with the prevention of scale buildup.
- Chloramine Solutions – Chloramine is a common addition used by water districts to help treat the water supply. It is often used as a secondary disinfectant to help prevent the growth of bacteria in the water supply. These solutions can be combined with other home water treatment systems to address a variety of problems and helps prolong the life of other home water treatment systems.
