What Are Residential Water Conditioners?

Aug 26, 2022
A glass of water from the kitchen Tap Have you noticed an odd odor coming from your home’s tap water? Perhaps you’ve even noticed crusty mineral deposits on your water faucets. These are both tell-tale signs you have hard water running through your home’s plumbing. So, what do you do now? You have a water conditioner installed. Water conditioners are devices that remove unwanted contaminants—such as chlorine and volatile organic compounds—from residential and commercial water supplies. These are a few of the chemicals that cause hard water, which is the culprit for many water issues in homes throughout Florida. Let’s take a closer look at the contaminants you may have in your water supply, and then we’ll discuss if a water conditioner is a wise investment for you.

Chlorine, Chloramines, Organic Gases & More

You’re not imagining that metallic smell coming from your home’s water supply. Many homeowners unknowingly have contaminants and chemicals in their water that come from disinfectants and minerals. While these pesky problems most likely won’t impact your health, they can be a nuisance. In fact, aside from foul-smelling water and faucets with mineral buildup, hard water can also cause a slew of other issues to arise in your home, such as:
  • Odd-tasting food made with tap water
  • Mildew and residue growth in sinks, tubs, and showers
  • Dry spots on dishes after washing
  • Faded and rigid clothing, bedding, and towels after washing
  • Dry and flaky skin after washing your hands
  • Brittle hair after bathing
What’s more, hard water could even shorten the lifespan of your water-using appliances. When water is heated up in your dishwasher or washing machine, it leaves scale behind. The buildup of scale could result in malfunctioning machinery, and you may have to invest in expensive repairs or replacements. If you wish to eliminate these problems in your home, a water conditioner can get the job done quickly and easily.

What Does a Water Conditioner Do?

While water softeners remove minerals like calcium and magnesium from water supplies, water conditioners remove troublesome contaminants and chemicals. This helps to fix the unpleasant taste and smell of your tap water. Additionally, water conditioners do not require much maintenance or upkeep, and they’re exceptionally simple and efficient.
