Is A Pre-Filter Needed With A Water Softener?
The goal is to get water that is as pure and healthy as possible. Under some circumstances, including city water problems, it may become necessary to combine two home water systems together to achieve this. For example, many people who already own a water softener system may wonder if they also require a pre-filter to assure good water quality. The initial answer to that question is maybe. We suggest that you have your water tested first before committing money to a pre-filter. The test will determine the quality of your water and indicate to a professional whether a pre-filter is necessary. We have the knowledge and expertise to test your water and analyze it. If we discover that you need a pre-filter, we stock them and our people have the expertise to install them.
Why A Pre-Filter?
It’s a good idea to consider the purchase of a pre-filter even if you already have a softener because it filters out contaminants that may be in the water. A softener system can’t do that on its own. The softener has the capability of removing minerals that contribute to hard water problems. For other conditions, you’ll require a pre-filter.
What Will The Pre-filter do?
Your water can be carrying all sorts of impurities from dirt, sand and sediment to rust and iron. The pre-filter removes this debris to ensure that your water is pure.
Water that includes dirt, sand, and sediment has a milky or cloudy appearance. If your water is stained red, brown, or black, then it’s possible that there are iron impurities in it. Using a pre-filter will definitely alleviate the problem.
Not only can the filter remove impurities, but it can also reduce other elements in the water that may affect its quality. Depending on the filter, elements that are reduced include:
- Organic and inorganic substances
- Dissolved solids
- Extremely fine particles
- Suspended particles
- Insoluble iron and manganese
In addition, the pre-filter offers protection for water-using appliances
Atlantic Coast Water Clinic advises all of our customers who already have a softener system for their water to have their water tested to see if an additional pre-filter is necessary.
The process is easy. We will send to your home a member of the company’s staff that is knowledgeable and skilled in testing to take a water sample. The sample will be returned to our store and tested. Within a few days, the results of the test will be relayed to you. If the test determines that a pre-filter is necessary, you can order one through us and a member of our staff will deliver and install it.
