The taste of water in your home does not meet your expectations, and home appliances continuously breaks? The reason may be hard and polluted water.
You can decide to buy bottled water, but it is quite expensive solution. Filters that purify water from harmful compounds, soften water and protect home appliances against scale become more and more popular.
To choose the right method of filtering water, you should consider what the water will be used for.
Domestic water treatment stations
Domestic softeners improve the water pH, remove excess of calcium and magnesium ions. Softeners are the best protection for dishwashers, radiators as well as washing machines and small household appliances. What is more it eliminates the appearance of scale on fittings, bathtubs and showers, extends service life of our equipment and increases the effectiveness of washing and dissolution of detergents.
Filters improving the quality of potable water
In order to improve the quality of drinking water, we use different types of filters, which are selected for the type of pollution we can find in the water.
The most popular filter that is installed on the water system of the house is a mechanical filter. It retains solid substances such as sand, gravel, rust or stone pieces. Its task is to protect water treatment equipment and other elements of the installation at home.
Previously mentioned water treatment stations are softening filters, which mainly reduce water hardness.
Carbon filters improve the taste and smell of water and remove harmful chlorine. The Polish manufacturer Dafi offers filter cartridges that have activated carbon. It removes chlorine and its derivatives as well as substances that destroy the taste of tap water. It also has bactericidal properties.
Another variation of the filter is reverse osmosis, which thoroughly cleans water, removing harmful micronutrients from it. Unfortunately, reverse osmosis also eliminates valuable components such as calcium, magnesium and potassium that are necessary for our body.
