Do Water Purifiers Soften Water?

by Water Purifier Anjan Sengupta (Service Head)

Have you seen the white stains on your clothes recently? Is your new soft towel stiffening? Do you have itchy skin? If you answered yes, then chances are that the water in your home is hard water.

You're probably aware of the negative consequences of hard water. Hard water can harm your household appliances and can impact your health.

Soft water is recommended for drinking, washing clothing, and even using household appliances. You've come to the right site if you're looking for information on how to soften hard water.

What is the need for converting hard water to soft water?

Minerals also exist in hard water, mainly calcium and magnesium. Hard water is bad for your body as well as your appliances. The minerals left behind by hard water can be harmful, for example, they can clog pipes, discolor tiles and glass, and diminish appliance performance. Aside from that, it shortens the life of appliances such as the washing machine, geyser, and dishwasher.

When you take bath in hard water, your skin becomes itchy, and the minerals residue in your scalp is left behind, which can cause dandruff. Your skin, hair, and nails can be seriously harmed. It is critical to converting hard water to soft water in order to avoid these negative consequences.

The difference between a water softener and a reverse osmosis water filters

A water softener is a device that is used to treat hard water, which is one of the most common issues with water quality. Drinking hard water for an extended period of time can produce dry skin and water stains on glasses and utensils. The ions that make water hard (typically calcium and magnesium ions) are removed during the softening process and replaced with sodium or salt ions.

A water filter is used to remove undesired particles from the tap or well water, such as contaminants and minerals. Sodium, chloride, chromium, copper, arsenic, lead, pesticide, radium, fluoride, sulfate, magnesium, calcium, nitrate, potassium, and phosphorus are examples of contaminants. RO stands out from other water purification systems because it uses a RO membrane that can remove 99% of TDS. 

A water softener, on the other hand, softens water while a reverse osmosis filter system cleanses it.

By using a water softener, you can enjoy:

  • Silverware and glassware that is spotless and shiny

  • Skin that is softer and more lustrous

  • Hair that is smoother has fewer clogs in the pipes.

  • Clothing that is softer

  • Water with a great flavor

  • Water appliances have a longer life span.

The following are some of the advantages of using a RO water filter system:

  • Water that is crisp, pleasant, and free of taste, odor, and color.

  • Much fewer contaminants—the molecular components smaller than water are removed by this drinking water filtration system.

  • The sodium ions that cause hard water problems are removed by reverse osmosis in soft water.

Is it important to buy both a water softener and a reverse osmosis system?

You must make your decision based on your requirements.

Both water purifiers are safe for the environment. Water softeners save energy and extend the life of household equipment, while RO systems can save hundreds of Rupees in bottled water costs.

Water can be softened using a RO system. Filtering hard water on a regular basis, on the other hand, wears out the water purifier faster. If eliminating water hardness is your first goal, acquiring a water softener will be a more cost-effective approach.

Using the RO water system, you can enjoy the delicious RO water. It's a clever, tankless RO with a 400 GPD flow rate and a 2-year RO filter life. It saves 70% of under-sink space, as well as money and effort spent replacing filters on a regular basis.
