Water Filtration Systems vs Water Softeners
Water softeners and water filtration systems are two different things. Water softeners are specifically designed to remove hard minerals, whereas water filters are designed to remove an even broader range of contaminants. Iron, sediment, and chemicals are contaminants that are commonly found in water. They can, however, be combined in a single unit. Jim Dandy can install both. Call 206-633-1141
There are two types of iron that are found in water supplies. Ferrous, which is also known as dissolved or clear water iron, can be removed via oxidation or ion exchange. Ferric, also known as rust or red water iron, can be removed with a sediment filter. Sediment refers to particles such as dust, dirt, sand, rust, etc. that are visible in the water. They need to be mechanically strained out. Carbon filtration can remove most chemical contaminants. Chlorine is the most common chemical disinfectant found in municipal city water supplies, and they can be removed with a carbon filter.
What you should look for when choosing a water filter
Filter size: the bigger the filter the longer the service interval, and the more water and greater pressure will flow.
Flow rate: determines the amount of water that is available to run your bathtub, shower, dishwasher, etc. Flow rate is measured in gallons per minute.
Port size: the ideal port size on a whole house water filter is one inch.
Filter life: sediment filter life will vary depending on the sediment’s quantity and quality.
Stand-alone carbon filters with carbon beds (as opposed to carbon filter cartridges) will only last much longer if they have a regular back wash cycle as well as a backwashing valve.

How to Get Your Water Filtration System
The first step to a new water filtration system is to locate and find out what exactly is in your water. You can start by getting a copy of your water quality report from your local water utility/authority. This quality report states the certain levels of contaminants that are detected in the water and how it compares to the EPA’s drinking water standards. Then you need to decide what contaminants you want to reduce. There is no safe level of lead exposure in your water. To help reduce lead in your water, simply run the water until it gets as cold as it can get – up to two minutes or so – when the faucet has not been used for at least six hours. When choosing a water filter, consider filter types that best fit your family’s budget as well as your family’s water consumption. It is important to understand that not all filters can reduce all contaminants. There are water filters to fit all your needs.
