The most common form of filtration, carbon filtering works by forcing water through a compact layer of sediment. This causes contaminants within the water to be filtered out as only very small molecules are able to pass through the micro pores of the sediment layer effectively. However, this method leads to contaminant build up over time, which is why filters need to be replaced relatively frequently.
Ideal for reducing water hardness and radioactivity an ion exchange process works by replacing ions of undesirable chemicals with a more beneficial chemical. It is often used by salt based Water Softeners that replace calcium in water with sodium. However, this makes the water unsafe to drink. That's why we developed our salt free softening method to provide softened water that is fully safe to consume.
