Water Problems and Treatment
What is hard water?
Hard water is water that contains a high level of dissolved minerals, mainly the minerals calcium and magnesium. According to a World Health Organization report (2003), hard water is generally not harmful to your health, but it can be extremely damaging to your home’s plumbing and water-using fixtures and appliances.
What is soft water?
Soft water is water that has very low levels of dissolved hardness-causing minerals. Water in some areas is naturally soft. More often, an ion exchange water softener will be used to soften water. These water softeners will remove the hardness minerals of calcium and magnesium from water, and replace them with sodium or potassium. ‘Softening’ water is an industry term that refers to this ion exchange process.
What’s the difference between a water softener, a water conditioner and a water filter?
A water softener will remove hardness minerals, and to a lesser extent, iron and manganese, from water and replace these lost minerals with sodium or potassium. A typical water softener will allow soaps to lather better, will cause water to feel more slick on the skin, reduce water spotting, and reduce future hard water build-up inside plumbing and appliances. It is not designed to remove unhealthy contaminants, or to remove existing hard water build-up.
A water conditioner is any water treatment system designed to affect a change in your home’s water. The EasyWater® No-Salt Water Conditioner™ is considered a water conditioner, and not a water softener, because it does not remove calcium or magnesium from water. Rather than removing the hardness minerals, the EasyWater® No-Salt Conditioner™ physically changes them to keep them from adhering to surfaces. In this way, the EasyWater® No-Salt Conditioner™ will protect against scale build-up, even though the minerals remain in the water.
A water filter is any system that removes contaminants from water. Specific filters are designed to remove different contaminants. Iron Shield+, Toxin Shield+, Toxin Shield Cartridge and RevitaLife are all water filters. Contact us to learn which filtering option is best for your home.
What kind of water problems can EasyWater products treat?
EasyWater products were designed to improve the quality of your water, whether you use well water or water from a municipal source. Common water problems that EasyWater products treat are hard water, rusty water, rotten egg odor, brown water due to tannins, acidic water, and bacterial contamination. We also have water treatment options for removing chemical contaminants from drinking water or household water.
If I have city water, isn’t it treated and safe?
Water that comes from a city or municipal supply is monitored regularly to ensure that the water quality complies to regulations set forth by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Unfortunately, there are potentially tens of thousands of contaminants in water that are not being regulated or tested. In addition, post-treatment system breaches can leave your water supply vulnerable. Point-of-use water treatment systems like the EasyWater systems are essential in order to provide your family with high quality drinking, cooking and bathing water.
Is installation included in the price?
When you purchase EasyWater products through one of our dealers or in-home consultants, the cost of installation is typically included with the price. You also have the option of purchasing an EasyWater® No-Salt Conditioner™, Toxin Shield Cartridge, Bacteria Shield and RevitaLife directly through EasyWater. In this case, the cost of installation is not included.
Do I need to use an EasyWater dealer?
