Water Contaminants

Common Home Water Problems

Water softeners and water conditioners are the same, these are interchangeable terms. A water softener or water conditioner is a device used in homes, restaurants, carwashes and many other industries to remove dissolved minerals from water. Soft water is considered water that is free from hard minerals - typically calcium and lime - from your city or well water.
