SOFT / CONDITIONED WATER

HYDRONIC CYCLE

All water from the beginning of time is still here.  Water (H20) will change it's properties from ice to liguid to steam but it never goes away.  Through all the processes it can absorb impurities and contaminants and that's why water treatment exists.

SOFTENING - CONDITIONING - REFINING 

These term are all basically the same.  Originally in the 50's "Soft Water" was the term that was used in the sale of equipment. Later, some aggressive sales people decided to call the process "Conditioned Water" so they could replace Water Softeners with a Water Conditioner.  Then more recently the term "Water Refiner" or "Water System" became popular.  CONTACT US  

ION EXCHANGE

No matter what the process is called if it uses Sodium(salt) the ion exchange in the regeneration it is going to give you better working water for use in your home.  If they use sodium (salt) and it is exchanged for an ion of calcium, magnesium, tannin or iron then there isn't any difference in the terms..  The exchange rate is different for each of the listed chemicals but basically it exchanges at the rate of 17.1 ppm per grain of hardness.

TREATED WATER

Treated water reduces the staining properties in the water and  permits soaps and cleaners to do their job in a more efficient manner.  With softened water you will use 75% less soap in your bathing, laundry and dishwasher.  Actually Maytag says that without soft water you should use 1 teaspoon of detergent for every grain of hardness in there dishwashers.  The same applies in the laundry.  Use of to much soap actually can cause damage to clothes, dishes and appliances.  Softened/conditioned water will generally pay for itself through the reduced soap usage and eliminating lime/iron staining.

SOFTENED WATERS EFFECT ON HOUSE PLANTS

Since softened water has a sodium content, you should not water your indoor plants with softened water unless you are going to care for your plants by periodically repotting with new soil.  Out door plants generally will not be affected by watering with softened water.

SOFTENED WATER AND FISH

Softened water is satisfactory for most aquarium fish.  Softened water does not have a toxic or undesirable effect on them. However, for salt water fish you may want to use Reverse Osmosis water so you can have better control of the sodium content in the water.
