Water Softener with Sediment Filtration

WATER SOFTENER SYSTEMS

Water softeners are typically installed to remove dissolved hard water minerals (calcium and magnesium) and dissolved iron or manganese in the water through a technology called Ion Exchange. To remove particulate iron or manganese, a properly sized sediment filter is required.  Hard water may result in scaling on plumbing fixtures and inside pipes, dull laundry, streaky glasses & dishware and will make it “harder to clean” than with soft water. For more information on hard water, see the link at the Water Quality Association website at Perceptible-Issues/Scale-Deposits.
