How Do you Treat Extremely Hard Water?

How Do you Treat Extremely Hard Water?

You asked, we answered! A common recent internet search topic has been “How Do you Treat Extremely Hard Water?”. One reason that this may be so hot right now is that in our area TDS (total dissolved solids) has increased over the past 3 years. In central Florida, in-home tests that we have conducted has averaged between 20 and 23 grains per gallon. This is twice what (10+) that the Water Quality Association classifies as “very hard water”. In this post, we explore the best hard water treatment systems for extremely hard water on the market.

Water Softeners

Invented more than a century ago, Water softeners revolutionized the quality of life in residences grappling with the challenges of hard water. Employing an ion exchange process, water softeners replace calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions. Typically installed at the point of entry, these systems necessitate professional setup and regular upkeep. Although they offer a more enduring solution compared to refrigerator or drinking container filters, they demand substantial maintenance. In light of the prevailing severe hard water conditions in Central Florida, a common occurrence is the breakdown of these systems within a year or two, particularly for low-cost filters from well-known national brands.

Water Conditioners

Water conditioners also employ an ion exchange mechanism for softening water. Comprising a tank filled with resin beads infused with sodium ions, they efficiently capture calcium and magnesium ions as hard water courses through the resin bed, effectively replacing them with sodium ions. A notable advantage of water conditioners is their incorporation of a carbon filter, which reduces chlorine and lead levels in the water, making it more suitable for consumption.

Reverse Osmosis (RO) Systems

Reverse osmosis systems, typically installed on a smaller scale, fit beneath a specific sink or faucet. These systems effectively eliminate a broad spectrum of impurities, including minerals responsible for water hardness. They operate by utilizing a semipermeable membrane to separate contaminants from the water. Generally installed under a sink, RO systems provide high-quality drinking water due to their compact size. They yield purified water suitable for cooking, as well as washing fruits and vegetables. However, it’s essential to note that if the system is situated beneath the sink, it may not address hard water issues throughout the entire household and its potential impact on plumbing and appliances.

Whole Home Water Systems

These would be any system to addresses hard water for the entire household, and could be more advanced than water conditioners, though some companies use this term for a water conditioner.

The Purity Bay 10-stage whole home water system provides more than 40 benefits, spanning environmental benefits, improved health outcomes, and economic advantages. Using top quality components, the system addresses hard water and provides filtration without the bacteria created by other water filters. Our commitment is to deliver the finest home water systems available in the market, enabling you and your family to enjoy the highest quality water in your everyday life.

Finding the Right System

Getting the right system includes testing your water to understand what’s in it. Keep in mind a water conditioner addresses the hardness of the water, it does not necessarily remove all the contaminants to ensure it is ideal for drinking.
