If you are looking for a system, deciding between a water softener and a water filtration system for your home is not a simple matter of preference. These two systems serve different functions. In some circumstances, using both would be prudent. In most cases, however, one or the other might be more beneficial to a homeowner.

Water softeners remove calcium and magnesium from the water. Using softened water improves the effectiveness of cleaners and prolongs the lifespan of appliances such as water heaters or ice makers. A water softener can also help prevent drainage issues in pipes by removing the source of mineral buildup. Water softeners use ion exchange in saline solution to remove minerals. Maintaining a water softener can be as easy as ensuring a proper power supply and monitoring the salt levels.

Water filters remove impurities by using physical or mechanical means. Pollutants such as heavy metals and chemicals are removed along with parasites and bacteria. Filters come in many styles, some more effective than others. The most effective filter systems combine multiple types of filters in sequence. Some filters include secondary functions, such as UV Light, to aid in the elimination of biological impurities. Filter maintenance is as straightforward as replacing a filter inside the housing.

Water softeners and water filters both help to improve the taste of water. Your exact need in this is based on what type of water you have. Many municipal water supplies are only lightly filtered for debris and larger impurities. Well water is rarely filtered by the pumping system. Filtering your homes water is the only way to know the quality of the water. Should your water supply be heavy in minerals, a water softener needs to be installed. All water piped to the interior of the home should be softened to remove mineral content that could potentially damage pipes and appliances.

Should your water supply be particularly bad, both in mineral and biological pollution, both a water softener and a water filter should be used. A clean, safe water supply is essential to healthy living.
