Popular Home Water Systems
While you can't beat the convenience of getting water from the tap, many Canadian residents prefer filtered drinking water. Others find that water treatment is necessary to filter iron or mineral deposits, opting for an iron filter or water softener to correct these problems. With multiple water quality issues and numerous water treatment systems available to address them, you can solve virtually any residential water or iron water problem you may have.
Among the more popular home water systems in Canada are:
- Water coolers and dispensers
- Water softeners
- Reverse osmosis
- Ultraviolet water treatment
- Iron Filters
Water Cooler / Dispenser Systems
When it comes to fresh drinking water, a water cooler is a popular option. Water coolers are available in traditional top loaded configurations, bottom loaded coolers, countertop water cooler models, and stylish stainless steel dispensers. You can opt for water bottle delivery or visit Water Depot's convenient U-Fill Water centre to take advantage of filtered water and cost savings at the same time.
Water Softener Systems
Hard water is a common complaint in households across Canada as it leaves mineral residues behind. This leads to a variety of unwanted side effects including: cloudy glasses, lime and mineral deposits, excessive soap scum, damaged water heaters, hot tubs, and pipes, and soap and shampoo have difficulty when lathering. Several types of water softeners exist including everything from an entry-level econo water softener to deluxe, platinum, and a 2-in-1 "Refineosoft" softener that softens and filters water.
Reverse Osmosis Systems
Reverse osmosis water systems are water treatment systems that filter water through a semipermeable membrane. It is a process that is the reverse of natural osmosis. With natural osmosis, water containing unequal concentrations separated by a semipermeable membrane tend to equalize as molecules move through the membrane. With reverse osmosis, pressure is exerted to allow water to move through the membrane while blocking solids such as salt ions, rust particles, and calcium carbonate chemicals. As a result, water is quickly purified. Residential reverse osmosis systems purify water on demand, making them both convenient and efficient.
Ultraviolet Water Treatment
If your residential water supply relies heavily on well water, a chemical free water treatment alternative exists: Ultraviolet. Using ultraviolet light rays, these systems deactivate the reproductive capacities of microorganisms and parasites (many of which are resistant to traditional water treatment chemicals such as chlorine).
Which water treatment is right for you? It depends on the water that flows out of your tap. You can visit any Water Depot water franchise for a free water test and expert guidance. Depending on the water test results, you may simply need an iron filter or a countertop water cooler. If your tap water is hard, a water softener may be the best choice for you.
