Why Do I Need A Water Treatment System In Arizona?

Arizona’s unique desert climate presents specific challenges to water quality. A few of these issues include high mineral content and potential contaminants due to low rainfall and high evaporation rates.

An Arizona water treatment system from AquaZona can ensure water quality that’s clean and pleasant to use.

Do Salt-Based Water Softeners Put Salt In The Water?

A water softener does not put salt into the water. Salt-based water softeners use an ion exchange process to remove minerals like calcium and magnesium, which cause water hardness. During this process, ions of sodium (from salt) replace the hardness minerals in the water.

However, the amount of salt added to the water is minimal and usually not significant enough to taste or pose health concerns for most individuals. For those concerned about sodium intake, potassium can be used as a regenerant alternative.

What Is The Most Effective Water Filtration Method?

The effectiveness of a water filtration method depends on the type of contaminants present in the water. Reverse osmosis (RO) systems are regarded as an efficient solution for removing a range of contaminants.

This form of water purification can remove sediments, bacteria, chemicals and more using its semi-permeable membrane. This process ensures that the water from the system is pure and safe for consumption.

How Can You Tell If Your Water Is Hard?

Hard water is characterized by a high concentration of minerals, primarily calcium and magnesium. Signs of hard water include soap scum buildup on showers and faucets or spots on dishes and glassware after washing.

You may notice issues during or after bathing, such as reduced soap lathering, dry skin and dull hair. A more precise determination can be made using a water hardness test, which AquaZona can provide.

What Do Water Filters Remove?

Kinetico water filters are designed to remove a variety of contaminants from water. The specific contaminants removed depend on the type of filter used. Activated carbon filters are effective at removing chlorine, sediment and volatile organic compounds.

AquaZona offers whole house filtration to remove a broader range of contaminants. A few of these impurities include bacteria, viruses, heavy metals and fluoride. Specialty filters may target specific contaminants, such as lead or arsenic. It’s important to select a system that addresses the specific contaminants present in your water supply.
