Hard water vs soft water
terms, hard water is water containing excessive quantities of natural minerals.
Water mineralised to such a degree can adversely affect plumbing, complicate
daily cleaning, and pose hazards to the body.
water, is water that has been treated to remove these minerals, so that homes
can use the water without complications. The softening of water is carried out
by a filtration system using specially formulated salts.
water is formed
water is formed when natural water gets filtered through layers of sedimentary
formation. Limestone is one of the most common sedimentary rocks that cause
water to accumulate minerals before it reaches the water table.
filtration removes several unwanted constituents of
ground water, but in the process it infuses ground water with natural minerals
at high levels of concentration.
common minerals that find their way into water passing through sedimentary rock
are calcium, magnesium and manganese. This
mineral-heavy water is what is drawn out of the earth and pumped into your
water is the standard source of water for homes and establishments built over
water tables that accumulate water filtered through sedimentary layers.
effects of hard water
present in hard water are not actually harmful in themselves. In fact, in small
quantities, these have beneficial value for the human body. The trouble is that
hard water carries excessive amounts of these
minerals. The effects of hard water can range from troublesome to dangerous.
casualty of hard water is your home’s plumbing system. Pipes, taps, basins,
tubs all develop grit and grime over time as the hard water passes through
them. The sediment builds over time, and these can be
difficult to clean; often it becomes necessary to buy cleaning agents to remove
water is also bad for washing utensils, clothes, hair and for bathing.
It leaves behind a gritty film on dishes and utensils and prevents
clothes from retaining their smoothness. People often complain about their hair
and skin feeling rougher because of bathing in hard water.
biggest danger lies in the consumption of hard water. Excessive build-up of
mineral deposit in the body can cause clogging of
arteries with plaque. It can pose a serious threat to the kidney, which is
unable to completely filter the large quantities of deposit that accumulate in
the body regularly.
water also affects industrial units adversely. Corrosion of units, clogging of
larger pipes, massive maintenance costs - these are all major concerns for
commercial establishments dealing with hard water.
standard filter will not be able to separate the
minerals from the hard water - they are too small and fine to be trapped by
solution to the problem of hard water is to install a water softener.
A combination of a softening system and special salts, which interact with the filter, can successfully remove the
hardening elements of water. The resulting soft water is safe for daily use.
softener is a device fitted to your water mains. It consists of a filter tank
that holds several tiny resin beads within it. These
beads are large enough to trap the minerals within them, as well as be trapped
themselves by the softener’s filter.
special salt is added to the tank, the chemical reaction with the resin beads
causes electrically charged ions to form. This is
called ionisation, and it results in the minerals attaching themselves to the
charged ions, and thus to the beads.
attached to the ions, they get filtered out as the water passes through the
softener’s filter and into the pipeline. Thus, the
water finally entering your home system is cleansed of the minerals and is soft
of using a softener
You will immediately enjoy the positive
benefits a water softener brings with it:
·Less time spent cleaning and washing, as soft water leaves no stains and grit
·Cleaner and longer-lasting pipes, taps and fittings
·Cost-savings, as you no longer require cleaning agents,
excessive detergent, fabric softeners etc
·Large-scale savings for commercial units as maintenance
costs come down significantly
·Ease of bathing and washing. Users enjoy the beneficial
effects of soft water on their skin and hair
·Healthier water entering your body, protecting you from the
dangers of mineral build-up
choosing a water softener, consider the capacity, efficiency and longevity of the
appliance. We offer the following water softening options:
