Softening is the process of removing dissolved calcium and magnesium (lime and scale) from hard water. Dissolved calcium and Magnesium precipitate to a solid rock like form when exposed to heat and oxygen, damaging plumbing and appliances by clogging openings and causing corrosion. This buildup reduces efficiency and increases the cost of heating water by building an insulation layer on heat exchangers in hot water systems. Further, hardness in water is a large contributor to dry skin, static electricity in clothes, damage to fabric, difficulty in managing hair, and water spotting on dishes and fixtures. We recommend most homes should have water softener. Except for homes being provided with rainwater, which is naturally soft.

Sulfur in water produces a terrible odor often referred to as a "rotten egg" smell. Sulfur is removed through the use of oxidation media filtration, and in more concentrated sources, we use aeration and chlorine injection with a post carbon unit to remove the chlorine.

Microbiological protection is incredibly important, and the process to eliminate the risk is rather simple. Through the use of ultraviolet light, bacteria is destroyed as long as the light burns above 254 nm. Due to the strict intensity guidelines, the lamp must be changed every year.

Acid water is when the PH is off balance and drops below 7. This is treated through the use of calcite and corosex media which raises the PH to a normal level.

Sediment is removed through the use of rope-wound filters or filtration media depending on the application.
