Phoenix Water Softener
Hard water and the Phoenix Valley go hand in hand. Our water travels through a large number of rocks and minerals before it reaches our homes. The majority of our water comes from the Salt River, Verde River, and some from the Colorado River and aquifers. As the water travels through these mineral-rich areas the water absorbs the dissolved calcium and magnesium minerals which is what makes the water hard. Hard water is not uncommon and in fact, is extremely common. The degree of hardness varies from state to state, city by city, and can even vary by neighborhoods. The good news is that even though we have hard water, we do not have to…it is treatable.
No matter if you have slightly hard water or even extremely hard water adding a water softener or water conditioner can help to get rid of the effects of hard water. There are many Phoenix Water Softener companies out there and choosing which one can be an overwhelming task. We are here to help give you a few pointers on what some of the differences are in the types of systems to help you decide what system is best for your needs.
There are three main types of Phoenix Water Softener Systems, of course, there are other types, but these are the 3 most common choices. There are salt-based softeners, non-salt based softeners also called water conditioners, and reverse osmosis systems.
The Salt Based Water Softener
The salt system is an extremely common system and 10 years ago was the go-to choice for the Phoenix Water Softener system solution. This system is an ion exchange system. The salt is used in exchange for hard water minerals such as calcium and magnesium. This ion exchange works for making the water soft but does add excess sodium to our water that your body does not need. To combat this many people will add an extra under the sink filter or R/O system to then filter out some of this excess sodium and other contaminants. These salt-based systems also are wasteful on water and considered harmful to the environment. Some areas have banned then due to the waste and harmfulness, be sure you check to make sure you are allowed to have one in your area before purchasing.
Reverse Osmosis Systems
A Reverse Osmosis system is a water filtration system that removes contaminants and dissolved minerals in the water by sending the water through a filter. They will remove some of the calcium and magnesium that are the main culprits for your hard water issues but not as significant as other types of Phoenix Water Softener systems.
Non-Salt based systems
One of the main benefits of a salt-free Phoenix Water Softener system is the fact that you are not adding in any excess sodium to your water. You are also leaving the calcium and magnesium, only in a different form, which is actually minerals that are beneficial for you to have.
Magnesium and calcium both play important roles in our bodies functioning properly, so it is actually more beneficial for us to leave those minerals in our water for us to drink and absorb through showers and baths. I am sure you are then wondering how we can keep these minerals in the water and yet still make our water softer since they are the main culprits for causing hard water.
