In the water treatment industry, there are both municipal water systems and well water systems. In South Florida, most well water systems are custom designed and require additional pieces of equipment based on the results of a water test.
Municipal Water Treatment involves a limited number of applications, depending on what is important to the homeowner:
Conditioning, or softening removes hardness, consisting of calcium, magnesium, and sometimes iron. Hard water clogs plumbing, fixtures, leaves spots, and literally leaves mineral deposits on skin, hair, fixtures, and increases the abrasive action in laundry, compromising the appearance of clothing laundered in hard water. This treatment is located at the point of entry, where the water is delivered to the residence.
Carbon Filters remove chlorine contained in virtually all municipal water. Removing both dissolved minerals and the added chlorine produces a much better quality of water, both in savings of wear and wear and tear. The amount of detergent, soaps, shampoos, dishwashing soaps, are significant, as well as the wear and tear on water-using appliances and hot water heaters. Removing chlorine before it falls on skin in the tub or shower is a great improvement in protecting against chlorine and its byproducts which are known to be cardinogenic(trihalomethanes). In addition, the chlorine evaporation given off in a shower is considered to be a toxic substance.
