How You Will Clean Your Home Water

  • Water Softener Vs. Whole House Filtration System



    When making the choice between of  water filter dubai softener system and a whole-house system, the main question to be answered first is: what is the quality of the incoming water? Most municipal and rural systems take ground water (wells) as the primary source water. This water tends to have higher percentages of dissolved minerals than surface water. High mineral content is commonly referred to as hard water. Water softeners concentrate on removing minerals from water. Whole house filtration systems address a broader spectrum of water quality issues.


     


    Water Softening


    The most common water purifier dubai softening systems are salt-based systems, which replace hard water minerals with salt ions. Also common are non-salt softening systems which do not add salts to the water but are vulnerable to even trace amounts of oil or hydrogen sulfate. For small volume uses, magnetic systems will pull metallic minerals from water.


     


    Softener Advantages and Disadvantages


    Salt-based water softeners add sodium (and some potassium) to the water. They require regular maintenance, including restocking consumable salt, and are in the $1,000 to $3,000 range to install. Non-salt systems require less maintenance and shower filter dubai start around $1,500 but are damaged by trace amounts of oil. Magnetic systems have the least maintenance expense; can be installed for under $1,000 but have no effect on non-metallic dissolved materials.

    These are usually two-stage filtration systems.


     The first stages of shower filter dubai traps particles larger than 10 to 100 microns in size, and the second stage traps smaller particles. This arrangement allows a much longer useful lifetime for the finer membrane (and more expensive) second stage filter. Unlike softening systems, filtration systems filter out all particles larger than the membrane rating of the second filter. Buy water dispenser dubai This means they remove metals, non-metals and biological particles such as bacteria. All filtration systems will require as much or more maintenance (back-washing, filter replacement, etc.) as the most maintenance-intensive water softening systems. The more effective systems have higher installation costs than the most expensive softening systems, as well.
