What is the difference between water filter, purifier and softener?

Generally we think water purifier and water filter is same and similar features of softener too. Some industries, mistakenly, use the term interchangeably and think that the process behind each is similar.

Obviously all three are using for making the water clean and safe to drink and use but there are some difference among them. Today we will discuss about the basic differences among the water filter, purifier and softener.

Why do we need to clean water before drinking?
Before knowing the differences among the water cleaning appliances it is important to know the reason of cleaning. At a glance water may found net and clean but it does contain harmful elements too. Those are the responsible to make us sick. There are some heavy metals like lead, mercury, arsenic etc. which needs to be removed from water because human body cannot get rid of these heavy metals and they keep on accumulating in the body causing health problems. Water from many sources contains germs, bacteria, viruses which cause water-borne diseases like cholera, typhoid and dysentery etc. Therefore it is mandatory to make sure about the purification of water before drinks.

Basically three methods are known to clean the water before drinks. Differences among the cleaning appliances are discussing below.

Water filter
Water filter is one of the common water cleaning appliances used in home and office. Due to have no installation cost and electricity use water filter is popular to use in terms of making water jam free. Water filter help to remove or reduce impurities such as chlorine, lead, mercury, magnesium, chromium, chromium, copper, nickel, iron, hydrogen and sulfide and more. The key element to remember in terms of a water filtration system is that they focus largely on impurities. There is a limitation too. Water filtration does not work on removing bacteria and viruses.

Water purification
Similar to water filtration, the process of water purification works to remove impurities from water. Most of the time it is been define that water purification means removing all types of harmful elements from the water but it does not include chemical contaminants such as the ones water filters remove (as mentioned above). Water purification is mainly focus on eliminating bacteria and viruses from the water. This is why water filtration and purification systems are often used in conjunction with one another.

Water softener
Water softener is totally difference from filter and purification. Unlike filtration and purification water softener removes scale from the water. Basically water softener use to reduce the TDS of the water and make water soft to drink. Water softeners do not target impurities in your drinking water or make it any safer to drink they just filter out minerals that result in inefficient appliances and help to prolong the life of your home assets.

Combination of all three cleaning appliances can be use for making water fresh, bed smell free as well as healthy water.

Be happy and drink safe water.
