How It Works
Two-in-One Carbon Filtration & Water Softener
Chlorine and chlorine byproducts are a common concern. Although municipalities do a great job at managing chlorine levels within the distribution system, the interaction between the chemicals and aging infrastructure can lead to unwanted tastes and odors in the water, as well as common byproducts like chloramines.
Hard water is terrible water. Hardness minerals will coat your faucets in white flakes, leave a dirty film on your dishes, keep soap from lathering properly, and create concrete-like buildup in your plumbing and hot water appliances (which can also cost you a lot of money to fix or replace).
To address both the chlorine in your water and the hardness, the first part of the VIQUA Beyond Taste system is a dual-purpose water softener. The media in the bottom of the tank softens your water by absorbing the calcium and magnesium that makes it hard, and the carbon in the upper part of the tank removes chlorine taste and odour. No more crusty plumbing fixtures and no more swimming pool water!
Next comes the sediment filter, which removes dirt or rust particles in your water, making sure the water is nice and clear. Depending on the age of the infrastructure where you live, sediment can be a significant challenge, especially when municipal work is occurring in the area. The filter isn’t fine enough to screen out other contaminants, though, like bacteria, viruses, minerals, and chemicals.
UV Disinfection System
This is an often-overlooked process in residential water treatment, but one of the most critical. The removal of chlorine leaves a home with no method of disinfection. But UV disinfection is a chemical-free solution that inactivates harmful biological contaminants, including viruses, bacteria, and even chlorine-resistant organisms like Cryptosporidium and Giardia. It’s the same technology that many bottled water companies use to sterilize their product, and that many large cities around the world (including Vancouver, New York, and Paris) use to treat municipal water supplies.
Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Filter
The final stage of this complete home water treatment system is a reverse osmosis system, to remove dissolved solids, like heavy metals (lead, mercury, cadmium) pesticides, pharmaceuticals, radium, fluoride and sodium, a byproduct of water softening processes. The RO system is installed under the sink, usually in the kitchen, or in the basement connected to a single faucet, to provide an additional treatment barrier at the tap most often used for drinking water.
