Water softeners are an increasingly popular way to reduce the amount of minerals in your water supply. While they are effective at removing these impurities, they can also affect the taste of your drinking water. To ensure that you have access to clean, safe drinking water, it is important to install a separate drinking water tap if you have a water softener. In this article, we will discuss why this is necessary and how to go about installing one.
What Are the Benefits of Installing a Separate Drinking Water Tap?
Installing a separate drinking water tap allows you to have access to clean, safe drinking water without having to worry about any potential contaminants or unpleasant tastes caused by the water softener. This is especially important if you have children or elderly family members who may be more sensitive to these issues. Additionally, having a separate tap will save you time and energy as you won’t need to worry about filtering your drinking water each time you need it.
How Does a Water Softener Affect Your Drinking Water?
A water softener works by removing minerals from your home’s water supply such as calcium and magnesium by using salt. While this can be beneficial for reducing limescale build-up in pipes and appliances, it can also affect the taste of your drinking water.
How Can You Install a Separate Drinking Water Tap?
Installing a separate drinking water tap is relatively straightforward and can usually be done in just one day with minimal disruption in most cases. While this may be a simple job for the competent DIY-er, for most it’s best to employ a professional plumber.
Is There an Alternative?
If you are searching for a way to keep your home free from limescale and would prefer not to install a separate drinking water tap, thankfully there is an alternative – you can install a water conditioner. Unlike water softeners, a water conditioner doesn’t use salts to soften your water, so you won’t experience drawbacks such as the need to install a separate tap for drinking water, or the environmental downsides often associated with salt softeners. The Halcyan Water Conditioner offers a quick and painless solution to hard water. With a very simple installation, you can enjoy the benefits of softer behaving water as our conditioner changes the way hard water behaves in your home, without impacting your drinking water supply.
Having access to clean, safe drinking water is essential for everyone’s health and well-being. If you have a water softener installed in your home, it is important that you also install a separate drinking water tap so that you can avoid any potential contaminants or unpleasant tastes caused by the softening process. You could look at an alternative way to have the benefits of soft water in your home by installing a Halcyan Water Conditioner, without the need to install a separate tap for your drinking water.
