Ion Exchange Water Treatment
Soap Scum, Mineral Deposits, Rust Stains?
The second essential step in a total water management system is Ion Exchange (Cation or Anion). Ion exchange is the best way to remove the common minerals that make water hard. Hard water causes dry skin and hair, faded clothing, rings and stains on bathroom fixtures and streaking on dishes and glassware.
Iron and manganese dissolved in your water can leave unsightly orange or black stains on clothes, fixtures and appliances and may lead to potential health complications. The problems caused by dissolved minerals can have a big impact not only on day-to-day living but also on your wallet.
With very strict tolerances and high operational costs, hard water can have an even more significant impact in commercial and industrial applications.
Did you know, according the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), consumers already spend approximately $1,000 per year because of the negative effects of hard water? Schedule a free consultation to find out how to reduce these costs by investing wisely in a Kinetico water treatment system and start saving money today.
Cation Exchange Water Softeners
Kinetico water softeners efficiently remove harmful minerals and metals dissolved in your water, including calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, lead, radium, and more. Ion exchange softeners operate by attracting minerals and metals in the water to negatively charged resin beads inside the water-softener tanks. The resin beads are then flushed of these minerals in a process called regeneration so the process can start all over again.
With a Kinetico Advanced Water Systems dual-tank softener, this critical regeneration process occurs in treated water so the minerals don’t contaminate the equipment making for a more effective exchange process. Additionally, Kinetico products are non-electric so you save money on electricity and protect the planet all at the same time. Kinetico water softeners deliver benefits you can see and feel:
- No more soap scum on dishes and glassware after running the dishwasher
- Less time spent cleaning shower enclosures, faucets, sinks, and toilets
- Softer, healthier skin and hair
- Brighter clothes, towels and linens
- Increased lifespan of water-using appliances
- Reduced expenses on soaps, cleansers, and detergents
- Save tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars in commercial water filtration systems
- Increased energy efficiency and reliability with water using appliances
Anion Exchange Systems
Less common dissolved contaminants like uranium, nitrates, and sulfates, can be removed using positively charged resin beads as opposed to the negatively charged beads mentioned above. Even though the charge of the resin is different, the exchange process remains unchanged. While compounds like uranium and nitrates have no color, taste, or odor, they most commonly occur in geographical areas of high susceptibility. Contact a Kinetico Advanced Water Systems professional and take the critical first step in learning more about what contaminants exist in your area that could be impacting your water supply and health.
