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.

While chlorine serves an important and necessary purpose in disinfecting municipal water as it is being treated at a large scale for municipal water supplies, chlorine presents a very real and serious risk to our health and should be removed from our homes at the point-of-entry. Chlorine-removal is the process of eliminating chlorine at the point it enters the home, so that the water used throughout your day—from drinking water and showering to watering your plants and washing your dishes—is chlorine-free.

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.
