Soft water doesn't mean pure water. While water softeners remove hard minerals from your water, other contaminates may exist. Chlorine and hydrogen sulfide gas can make water taste and smell bad.
Carbon filters are great at removing these impurities, providing great tasting and smelling water.
Let's face it, we live at the beach. With beach living comes sand and sediment. These particles can get into your water heater and even come out of your faucets. Simple sediment filters can remove these contaminants, saving you money on repair bills.
Rust is more commonly associated with well water and can leave reddish-brown stains on in your toilets, tubs, and sinks. It can also alter the color of your hair and clothes! While water softeners and sediment filters remove some rust, for severe instances, a Greensand Iron Filter is needed.
Greensand filters use a similar Ion-Exchange method as Water Softeners, but instead of Resin, the tank is filled with greensand and instead of salt, the system is cleaned with Potassium Permanganate.
