Can Reverse Osmosis Help with Hard Water? –
The answer is NO – Reverse Osmosis (OS) cannot help if you have hard water. You may need to consider installing a water softener for your home or business.
It is extremely difficult for any Reverse Osmosis system to remove calcium and magnesium – minerals that are found in hard water. This is because they tend to clog the system and interfere with its working. Thus, if you have hard water, you first need to install a traditional water softener. Allow it to soften your water before it goes through your Reverse Osmosis system. This simple step will protect your system and save you money in the long run.
Even though a Reverse Osmosis system cannot soften your hard water, it will remove unnecessary salt that is left behind from the water-softening process. This will leave your water clean and delicious for everyone to enjoy.
Back in 1977, Cape Coral, Florida began converting salt water into drinking water using Reverse Osmosis on a large scale. Since then, communities all over the world have used that same process to provide safe drinking water where previously there was none. Read about that fascinating story in our blog article, “Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink.”
