Advantages of using Water Softeners and Water Filtration Systems
Posted: Apr 19, 2016
Water Softener is essentially a device that, depending on the technology used, reduces or neutralizes the hardness in the water. To understand the advantages of using a water softener in India, let us first get a grip on the hard water facts and the consequences of using hard water.
Water is considered hard if the content of calcium and magnesium ions (hard salts) in the water is more than the permissible limits. Such water is called hard water. The level of hardness in the water can be accurately measured by analyzing the water in an accredited laboratory. However, the presence of hardness in the water can also be understood by certain typical characteristics of hard water. For example usage of hard water can form scales in pipes and plumbing accessories, water-using home appliances that can reduce the efficiency and life of these items, soaps don’t lather well in hard water, if used for bathing it can leave soap scums on the scalp and body that leads to dry skins and hair fall. Besides, regular usage of hard water can also damage fabric richness and leave spots on kitchen utensils.
Hard salts can be removed from the water by using a Water Softener. Two types of water softeners are used in India. ie., Products that use the ion exchange process and the one that uses the scale inhibition technology.
In the ion exchange water softening process, the hard salts in the water namely calcium and magnesium are replaced with sodium, a soft salt. High-efficiency cationic resins and rich brine solutions are used to enable this process. Popular brands like Zero-B and Kent use this technology in their water softeners in India. These brands also offer fully automatic water softeners where the regeneration process is fully automated.
On the other hand, 3M Water Filtration Systems use sequestering agents that bind the cations present in the water and thereby neutralizes the scale-forming capabilities of the hard salts present in the water. In addition, a whole house 3M Water Filtration System also removes excessive physical impurities in the water using its in-built 5 micron filter

Kent, a popular brand in the water segment in India, also sell their point-of-use water softeners and the fully automatic water softeners through their distributors and retail stores across India. Zero B, the pioneer in the industry sell their water softeners through their own employees in India.
What needs to be noted here is that the design and specifications of water softeners and water filtration systems are determined by the characteristics of the raw water that is proposed to be treated. So it is important to do a laboratory analysis of your water before deciding on a water softener and water filtration system.
