Minerals help keep our bodies strong and functioning properly. So, having minerals like calcium, magnesium, sodium, and zinc in your drinking water is great, right? The answer is not as simple as you’d think!

Excess Minerals

Although minerals are amazing for your body, they can be harmful to your plumbing and belongings. Water with high levels of minerals is considered hard water. The excess minerals in hard water create limescale. Limescale causes water spots, stains, and buildup in your pipes and appliances. Keep your belongings clean and avoid expensive damages by adding a water softening system to your home!

Drinking Water

Softeners and filters remove excess minerals, but don’t you want minerals in the water that you drink? You do! In fact, many people want more minerals in their water. Mineral water and alkaline water both have added nutrients that help promote health and general wellbeing. The water you drink should have minerals!

Softening vs. Filtration

When looking to fix hard water, it is important to keep in mind that softening systems improve the water you use to run your home. If you want to improve your drinking water, a filtration system is a better option! Filtration systems focus on supplying better-tasting, cleaner water that is free of harmful contaminants like chemicals and metals. Though minerals are removed during the purification process, they can be restored through remineralization! At Orbit, we install filtration systems that add magnesium, potassium, and calcium back to the water.
