What's the Difference Between Water Softener Systems and Water Filtration Systems?

Difference between water softener systems and water filtration systems infographic

Water softener systems are designed to remove minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, that can leave deposits on dishes and plumbing fixtures while water filtration systems are designed to remove contaminants and foul odors found in drinking water.
 
You may have hard water if you are experiencing:

  • Stiff laundry after the cycle
  • Dry hair and skin after showers
  • Mineral spots on dishes after running through the dishwasher
  • Mineral spots on fixtures and appliances that use water

You may benefit from filtration if you are experiencing:

  • Off-putting odors from ice or drinking water
  • Foul flavors in ice, drinking water or homemade beverages
