Hard Water In Arizona

What causes hard water in Arizona? Is a very frequently asked question. There is a lot of particles in our water, magnesium and calcium are the two major minerals in our water that cause hard water. These two minerals combine they create hard water. Hard water will build up inside of you pipes, on your plumbing fixtures, and your dishes. This can cause low water pressure and plumbing parts or fixtures to deteriorate and fail over time.

Water Softener Vs Water Conditioner. How Do They Compare?
Both water conditioners and water softeners are used to improve the quality of water in our households. However, they are very different. To explain difference, let’s look at how they compare with the following information.

Water Quality

Water quality is one of the main differences between water conditioning system and water softener system. Water softeners only eliminate water hardness through ion exchange and don’t focus on filtering the contaminations in our water such as pharmaceuticals, pesticides, metals, toxins, and more.

On the other hand, water conditioners are responsible for filtering water and removing impurities and contaminants. It also will through Catalytic process converts calcium and magnesium into harmless micro crystals preventing scale build up.

Price

Water Softeners tend to be slightly more expensive versus the salt free water conditioner.
