Eighty percent of your body is made of water. Without it, you can’t function properly. But does that mean that ANY water will do?

Water is widely considered a universal solvent. Given enough time it will wear down anything. It picks up a little of everything through which it travels: dirt, minerals, surface contaminants, and far more. And everything that it picks up goes into your body when you drink it…unless it’s removed first.

That’s where we can help!

Contamination The most common problem with water in Kansas is hardness. When rain falls through the atmosphere it picks up a small bit of carbon dioxide (CO2), forming carbonic acid. When it soaks into the ground it reacts with the limestone all around the state, neutralizing the acid and forming calcium bicarbonate (Ca(HCO3)2), more commonly known in the water industry as "hardness."

Water stores dissolved solids best at cooler temperatures; this is why pop that has been left out will go flat more quickly than pop in a fridge. What this means for your plumbing is that dissolved solids will drop out of your water in your pipes more readily than in the ground, as your pipes are not as well-insulated. This is much more prevalent in your water heater and heated pipes. Hardness, when no longer dissolved in water, becomes a hard, white substance that is best recognized as stalactite and stalagmite formations in caves. This builds up in your plumbing and water appliances, the same as it does on cave ceilings and floors.

How do you take care of this? With a water softener. Water softeners chemically treat the water to change calcium bicarbonate to sodium bicarbonate. Also known as baking soda, sodium bicarbonate is much easier to remove from dishes and does not build up inside of plumbing. While this process does increase the presence of sodium in the water, one of the reasons for having an RO in the house for drinking water is to remove up to 96-98% of all remaining dissolved solids in the water, including sodium ions.
