We’ve all heard the term “hard water,” but are you really familiar with what it means? It is referred to as “hard water” if calcium and magnesium are present in your water source. It can also make you eczema-prone, dry out your hair, clog up your fixtures, shorten the lifespan of your appliances, change the color of your clothes, or leave white spots on the surfaces of your dishes, preventing them from ever shining perfectly. If you want to know if you need a filter, call us. Matthews, North Carolina, has some really hard water. By using an ion exchange mechanism, a softener gets rid of these minerals. Resin-like plastic beads are the softeners’ resin-like components. The minuscule salt molecules that are attached to this resin will be exchanged with the minerals. Think of the salt as a weaker magnet to the calcium and magnesium; as the minerals pass by, they push the salt aside and adhere to the resin, a process known as ion exchange. The minerals must be removed through washing as the calcium and magnesium build up. In order to restart the system after a particular amount of gallons have passed through, softeners need a brine tank that is loaded with salt. Since the hardness of each water supply varies, each system needs to be replenished at a different period. During the testing, the hardness of your water will be indicated in grains; the harder the grain, the more salt the system needs.
Measured in Grains Per Gallon (GPG)
Soft: 0 – 3.5 GPG
Moderate: 3.5 – 7 GPG
Hard: 7 – 10.5 GPG
Very Hard: 10.5 GPG +
When the output valve is shut, the water softener starts pushing a highly concentrated salt solution through the resin, pelting out all of the magnesium and calcium and replacing them with salt. This process is called rejuvenation. To prevent the wash’s contents from harming the surrounding region, the leftovers are poured into a drain throughout this process. Until the brine tank needs to be filled with new salt, this process continues continually. You may be confident that the water coming from the softener is of the best quality possible because this only adds a tiny amount of salt to your water supply, not nearly enough to notice a difference in flavor.
At this time, chemicals—from fuel to cleaning products—are a part of our daily lives. Do you want to put any of these chemicals into your body, though? Even if you use a Brita filter and only consume filtered water, your body still absorbs pollutants such as chlorine and other volatile organic compounds through your skin when you take a bath. To eliminate any potentially harmful bacteria in the system, the city of Matthews is mandated to administer chlorine to your water supply. To treat your water and keep you safe, many more chemicals are added; nevertheless, some of these compounds can give your water an unpleasant taste and odor. Carbon Filters rid your system of any chemical that may produce a smell or taste from the water giving you bottled water quality out of your tap. For the purpose of removing VOCs from your water supply, this filter uses active carbon that acts as a sponge. Zooming in on the active carbon makes it resemble a sponge in appearance but with far more adsorption potential because it is much finer. We can test your water here at Superior Plumbing and Drains, LLC, if you’d like to know what’s in your water call us at 704-289-6858. You can also book online here!
Humans are not harmed by an ultra violet filter, however tiny bacteria are severely harmed. Bacteria and viruses are killed when their DNA is destroyed by UV radiation. The atmosphere serves as a barrier, blocking a significant amount of the UV light produced by the sun, despite the sun also producing some of it. It is easy to easily kill bacteria and viruses before they reach your home when a UV filter is used since it lets 100% of the power through.
One of the most fundamental filters that can be installed in your house is employed in well-equipped homes to stop sand-like particles from blocking your pipes. This has a similar effect to a net, catching anything larger than a red blood cell (5 micron), or roughly 30 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair, which is incredibly small.
Reverse Osmosis Filter
A reverse osmosis filter will provide you with the purest drinking water possible. Everything that is bigger than a water molecule will not flow through their semi-permeable membrane, including viruses, bacteria, salt, and chlorine. An RO filter’s only drawback is its time-consuming nature. An RO filter allows you to save water for later use in a tank. The only cap on RO filters depends on how much money you want to invest. Some manufacturers sell whole-house filters that can be connected to anything from a 500-gallon tank that you may use whenever you’re ready to a 2-gallon tank that sits under the sink. The only constraints are time and money, which depending on the type you desire might easily range from less than $1,000 to well over $100,000. Prior to making a decision, always seek advice from a professional. We are here to assist.
