Discover Well Water Solutions from Kinetico
Kinetico offers two types of well water solutions. Each solution result in crisp, clean water but target different areas of concern. If you’d like to improve your well water, Kwater recommends treatment options including Whole House Reverse Osmosis and Water Softener systems.
Water softeners treat hard water, meaning that your home or business’ water is considered mineral heavy. A buildup of minerals affect hair, skin, and even laundry. Hard water doesn’t allow soap or detergent to properly dissolve, leaving a frustrating, soapy residue on appliances.
So, how do Water Softeners really work? Essentially, water softeners trade mineral ions, resulting in what’s referred to as an “ion exchange”. In order to do this, the tank is filled with salt-coated resin beads. The beads flow through the tank and affect the mineral cased on positive and negative charges.
Whole House Reverse Osmosis (also known as RO) takes a different route to tackle water impurities. RO systems go directly to the source, using osmosis to remove minerals and other dissolved solids from your water.
To achieve this, the water is pushed through a semipermeable membrane. Think of it like a filter; the water passes through, leaving behind the contaminants such as lead, detergents and soaps, nitrates, sulfates, chlorine, chloramine, fluoride, pesticides, and more.
