The Difference Between Filtration and Softening

Oct 28, 2014

Your family deserves the cleanest water possible. With a water conditioning system, that dream can now become a reality. An unfiltered water supply can create health problems from impurities like chlorine, mercury, lead, zinc, sediment, trihalomethanes, and pesticides. Both water filtration and water softening will give you and your family the safest, purest water for drinking, bathing, washing, and more.

You are probably scratching your head trying to find out what system is better than others. Both have positives and negatives but they do share one consensus: both systems are safer and more economical than bottled water.

What is Water Filtration?

  • Absorbs minerals using carbon
  • Can be small or large depending on the need
  • Doesn’t stop hard water
  • Blocks harmful chemicals

…And Water Softening?

  • Uses sodium to separate minerals from water
  • Or uses an electrical charge by “descaling” the minerals from water
  • No need to change filters
  • Eliminates hard water
  • Doesn’t prevent chemicals from a water line

If you have hard water and you want the best of both worlds, a combination water filter and softener might be the right solution. The technology in both systems has come a long way in the past decade. With both systems, you can eliminate the need for expensive water bottles. You’ll have pure, tasty water that is also great for your skin and clothes.
