Bottled water is popular, but the vast majority of Americans still get their drinking water straight from the tap. Whether you get your water from a municipal water system or a well, you want to be certain it’s safe to drink and use. After all, there’s a bunch of nasty stuff that often ends up in your water, from heavy metals like lead and iron to microbes and bacteria that can pose a wide variety of health risks.
And it’s not just what’s in your water that could pose problems. What it leaves behind can be just as hard to deal with. Signs of possible water quality problems include foul odors, bad taste and residue left behind on clothes and plumbing fixtures.
Investing in a water filtration system ensures that you and your family remain healthy and satisfied with the water that comes out of your pipes. There are several different types of water filtration available, each one offering a different method of purifying your home’s water supply:

You may have heard the term “hard water” before. If not, here’s a quick primer: it’s short hand for any water supply with a high amount of minerals, usually magnesium and calcium. Hard water is an issue many homes commonly face, especially in areas with higher-than-normal mineral levels.
The extra mineral content can do a number on your home’s plumbing, mainly by leaving behind mineral deposits inside your pipes. The resulting buildup can slow water flow to a trickle, causing other, more serious issues later on. Hard water can also leave unsightly residue on shower walls and fixtures.
Hard water not only makes hard work for your plumbing, but you’ll feel its impact every time you bathe, wash your hands, clean dishes or do anything else involving water. The same mineral residue that ends up coating pipes can also coat your hands, dishes and laundry. Hard water can even sour the experience of drinking water straight from the tap.
That’s where water softeners come into play. Whereas water purification works by actively removing metals and other contaminants from your water supply, water softeners work by replacing calcium and magnesium ions found in hard water with sodium ions.
Most water softeners do this by using negatively charged resin beads. The beads themselves act like magnets, drawing positively charged calcium and magnesium ions as hard water flows past them. Every so often, water softeners go through a “regeneration” process where a brine solution flushes out the collected minerals, thus preparing the water softener for another round of mineral removal.
