Why do You need a Whole House Water Filtration System?
Phoenix has some of the highest temperatures in the country, making our water warmer in the summer months. Consequently, city municipalities in the Phoenix area increase the amount of chlorine in our water to prevent the growth of potentially harmful bacteria. Chlorine is an excellent sanitizing agent, but it has downsides as well. Chlorine has a strong chemical odor and causes skin irritation; it also deteriorates our clothing fabrics and oxidizes faucets and fixtures.
Earth Wise Technologies provides whole house water filter systems to combat hard water and contaminants like chlorine and volatile organic compounds. Whole home water filtration refines the lifeblood of your home by eliminating chemicals that cause skin irritation and dryness and oxidation on your faucets and fixtures.
A whole house water filtration system combines water softening technology and/or water filtration capabilities into one system. Our H2O Miser™ systems are on the cutting edge of the water industry, designed by us and built by us to our specifications for all water conditions. If you are looking for the best quality water from every faucet in your home, We have the solution to your water issues!
For most of us, our home is the biggest investment and our most valuable asset. Taking care of your home can be costly and time-consuming. Most of the things we purchase for our homes do not preserve or protect them. A quality water conditioning system is an investment in your home that will save you time and money! Installing an Earth Wise Technologies water system is like having a 24 hr a day maintenance department protecting your home against harmful hard water. Conditioned water shields your water using appliances and fixtures from hard water scale build-up and corrosive chemicals, making them more efficient, thus allowing them to last longer.
The process of water softening or water conditioning works by connecting your main water line or available, “Water loop” into the inlet side of the water softener or conditioner. The outlet side of the water softener or conditioning system is connected back into your home’s plumbing. This ensures that all the water in your home will be treated.
Water Softener operation
In the case of a water softener, The incoming hard water passes over the softening resin. The resin is contained within the resin tank (sometimes called a mineral tank). Water softener resin has a negative charge. Calcium and magnesium, which make the water hard, have a positive charge and adhere to the resin when they pass over them. Eventually, after several gallons of water have passed over, the resin will become completely saturated and water cannot be softened further.
Next, the water softening system will go through a regeneration process, which will re-charge the resin. During this process, a strong brine solution of chloride dissolved in water and held in the brine tank will be slowly introduced into the resin tank and will pass over the hardness saturated resin. The chloride solution will be exchanged for the hardness minerals. (This is called ion exchange.) The resin now has a positively charged chloride ion attached to it.
Finally, the water softener system will then go through a fast and settling rinse; the brine tank will re-fill with water and go back into service to start producing softened water again. This process continues over and over in the water softener.
