Water Softeners, Reverse Osmosis

Water softeners

As their name implies, water softeners soften your water by eliminating minerals that cause it to harden, such as magnesium and calcium, says

Hard water has many negative effects, says It can shorten the lifespan of your water appliances (washing machines, dishwashers, coffeemakers, etc.) by creating a scale buildup, and cause your hair and skin to feel sticky and rough after a shower.

However, installing a water softener in your home can alleviate these problems, as well as lower your monthly energy costs, says (For maximum effectiveness, you should have your water softener installed near your water heater, says

Reverse osmosis systems

A reverse osmosis system is, essentially, a home water purification system, says

When used in the kitchen, it purifies your water by removing several unwanted elements, including copper, lead, sodium, arsenic, and nitrates, says This leaves you with healthy drinking water.

Iron filters

According to aQuatell Canada, high levels of iron in your water can cause stains to appear in your bathtub, toilet, sink, and other fixtures.

An iron filter installed on your water main, however, can eliminate these problems by lowering the amount of iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulphide in your water, says aQuatell Canada.
