WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WATER SOFTENER AND REVERSE OSMOSIS?

Find out with us why these two types of water treatment are so different.

Softener and reverse osmosis for a better quality of life.

The increased attention given by a growing number of people to health has led to more informed choices about nutrition. Not even those who have decided to install a reverse osmosis water softener or water purifier in their home . These two systems aim to eliminate unwanted and harmful substances often present in tap water in our homes.

 

Water softener: the ultimate solution to problems caused by limescale.

Speaking of water softener means referring to an equipment able to prevent limescale deposits , guaranteeing a longer life expectancy for pipes and household appliances. It is characterized by its ability to reduce water hardness . It is precisely the excessive hardness, determined mainly by the presence of calcium and magnesium , to bring, in the long run, the pipes to be encrusted. Those who buy a water softener have at their disposal a device that performs an effective protective action on the entire sanitary system, considerably reducing the wear of pipes, coils , tanks, boiler elements, dishwashers, water heaters and allowing savings, both in terms of energy and replacement of damaged parts, on the costs of running the house.

 

The operation of a water softener is based on the use of ion-exchange resins. The water is conducted in a pressurized tank inside which there is a bed of ionic exchange resins , loaded with sodium. It is precisely such resins, when water passes, to replace calcium and magnesium ions with equivalent sodium ions, reducing their hardness. The optimal levels of concentration of the various elements are thus restored.

The sodium transferred during this process is automatically restored by the centralized softener valve during the regeneration cycle . In terms of savings, this machine ensures lower maintenance costs , reduced consumption of household and personal products, lower bills and minimal pollutant emissions.

 

Reverse osmosis purifier: pure quality water for the whole family.

The  reverse osmosis purifier , on the other hand, comes into play when dealing with drinking water, ie with the water that is drunk and used every day for cooking , washing fruit, vegetables and many other domestic uses. . This purifier connects directly to the kitchen faucet (under the sink) and allows you to filter the water making it healthier and lighter. This water purifier, thanks to a special osmotic membrane with which it is equipped, is able to filter any pollutants contained in the water in addition to chlorineand to the iron oxide developed by the corrosion of the aqueduct distribution lines. In fact, despite the countless daily checks to which it is subjected, the water could contain many pollutants such as arsenic, nitrates , pesticides, phosphates and many other pollutants that, although falling within the limits of tolerability of current legislation, could adversely affect the characteristics organoleptic and quality of the water supplied by the public aqueduct.

The percentage of substances eliminated by a reverse osmosis purifier is extremely high, ranging between 90 and 98%. By proceeding with the periodic replacement of the filters and complete hygiene of the system, to be carried out at least once every 12 months, maximum hygiene safety is guaranteed. The reverse osmosis process represents a natural physical mechanism; for this reason, a water purifier based on this system does not resort to any chemical substance. The result is an excellent mineral water , pure, light, healthy and of high quality .
