The right water purification system or treatment for your home is determined by a number of factors including a professional water test and analysis of your families water usage.
- What water system are you currently using (municipal or well)?
- How many people are living in your home?
- What is your normal water usage?
- How many bathrooms do you have?

One of the biggest misconceptions about water softeners is that the salt is what softens your water. What actually softens the water are the thousands of resin beads inside your softener that filter out hard water minerals.
- Water softeners use a negatively charged ion exchange resin to collect the impurities from your water. The resin becomes charged when it mixes with a sodium or potassium solution. The salt in the water softener isn’t what softens the water; it is what enables the resin to collect and remove the hardness from your water.
- The EcoWater refiner softens your water, and also removes the chlorine taste and odor, which is often a result of water treated by cities and municipalities.
- Regeneration is the term for when the resin is being cleaned and recharged in the sodium solution.
Purified water is water that has been mechanically filtered or processed to remove impurities and contaminants like bacteria, chemicals, and toxins from tap water.
Filtered water involved running water through a type of filter, carbon filters being the most common. Carbon filters remove chlorine and improve the water’s taste. In these filters, the activated carbon helps remove unwanted contaminants like pesticides and arsenic, but leave minerals in.
