Reverse OsmosisReverse osmosis systems use an ultrathin membrane, which sits in the water line so that all water entering the home must pass through it. Water molecules are able to pass through the membrane without problems. However, larger particles like lead, as well as a number of viral and bacterial varieties, will not be able to. These are collected in a waste receptacle in the system, to be disposed of later. A reverse osmosis system is great for preventing harmful materials from making it into your home.
Water SoftenersA water softener is designed to address the problem of hard water, which is water with a high amount of magnesium and calcium particles. These particles form lime scale in the plumbing pipes over time, restricting the flow of water and requiring professional repairs to fix. A water softener replaces the magnesium and calcium particles in the water with sodium, which is harmless. This softens the water, and protects the plumbing pipes.
