What is soft water? And what do drinking water systems do? What is the difference between both of them and do I need one or the other or both?
Soft water is water free from minerals deposits. Don't worry they are not the kind of minerals that are what you need in your diet. We are talking about calcium and lime. It's the stuff you see built up on your shower walls, the fading on your glassware and what clogs up your pipes in your home. Once you get rid of the hardness in your water you can use way less soap, hair is softer, and skin is less dry. A drinking water system makes the same water you see from those machines you see in the grocery store. But instead of lugging around a big bottle, carrying it out to your car and hauling it inside your home you can just make it right from a spout on your sink. We do both rental system, purchase or rent with option to buy, your choice.
What about those SALT-less water softeners I have been hearing about?
If those things really worked we would be selling them. The fact is that they DO NOT remove hardness from your water. If you go to their website and look for the fine print you will see where they say that their unit does not remove dissolved minerals. The only way to remove calcium and lime is to use ionic resin featured in a water softener. Sorry folks but its true. Call us or any water treatment company and they will tell you the same thing. Believe us if they really did work we would sell them too.
I want to know more info but I don't want a pushy salesperson in my home or have someone telemarketing me.
H2O Solutions has been around too long to play those games with people. We are straight shooters and will tell you what you want to know without a long drawn out sales pitch or a pushy salesperson twisting your arm. However, to truly know what equipment you need it's best we test your water. When we do a water test we look for what your TDS is (total dissolved solids), GPG (grains per gallon or how hard your water is) and what size your pipes are. It is also important we see where your water system will be installed because sometimes it's a very simple job, other times it takes a lot of work. If you want to talk with one of our water professional please feel free to call or make an internet inquiry. We can get back with you at any time that is good for you…days, week nights, weekends…your choice.

Glossary of Water Treatment Terminology
Action Level: The level of lead or copper which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Activated Carbon: A water treatment medium, found in block, granulated, or powdered form, which is produced by heating carbonaceous materials, such as coal, wood, or coconut shells, in the absence of air, creating a highly porous adsorbent material. Activated carbon is commonly used for dechlorination, organic chemical reduction and radon reduction, and is recognized by the US EPA as the best available technology for reduction of organic chemicals from drinking water.
Acute Health Effect: An immediate (i.e. within hours or days) effect that may result from exposure to certain drinking water contaminants (e.g., pathogens).
Aquifer: A natural underground layer, often of sand or gravel, that contains water.
Alkalinity: The quantitative capacity of water to neutralize an acid; that is, the measure of how much acid can be added to a liquid without causing a significant change in pH. Alkalinity is not the same as pH because water does not have to be strongly basic (high pH) to have high alkalinity. In the water industry, alkalinity is expressed in mg/l of equivalent calcium carbonate. There are three kinds of alkalinity: carbonate, bicarbonate, and hydroxide alkalinity. Total alkalinity is the sum of all three kinds of alkalinity. Different tests are used to determine the quantity of the different kinds of alkalinities present in water.
Amoeba: A single celled protozoan that is widely found in fresh and salt water. Some types of amoebas cause diseases such as amoebic dysentery.
Automatic water softener (or Automatic Filter): A water softener (or filter) that is equipped with a clock timer, meter, or sensor which automatically initiates the backwash and/or regeneration process at the preset intervals of time. A predetermined number of gallons of water usage or as determined by a sensor. All operations, including bypass of treated or untreated water (depending upon design), backwashing, brining, rinsing, and returning the unit to service are performed automatically.
Bacteria: Unicellular microorganisms which typically reproduce by cell division. Although usually classed as plants, bacteria contain no chlorophyll. Different types of bacterial organisms are often found in drinking water.
Barrier Layer: This refers to the active layer of membrane material that actually separates the impurities from the product stream or permeate. This barrier layer is supported by a micro-porous support layer, usually made from polysulfone, which is cast on a non-woven support material.
Best Available Technology: The water treatment(s) that EPA certifies to be the most effective for removing a contaminant.
Brine: A strong solution of salt(s), such as the sodium chloride or potassium brine used in the regeneration of ion exchange water softeners, but also applied to the mixed sodium, calcium and magnesium chloride waste solution from regeneration.
