Why filter water before a water softener?

Installing a Cintropur sediment filter in front of water softeners is a common and recommended practice for several important reasons. A pre-filter before the water softener helps improve the efficiency of the water softener and ensures better water quality for your domestic use.

Here are some essential reasons why it is advisable to install a filter with various fineness sleeves and a propeller upstream of your water softener:

Protection against coarse contaminants:

Filters like those from Cintropur are designed to remove solid particles and sediments present in the water. These contaminants, such as sand, mud, rust, and debris, can clog the components of the water softener, reducing its efficiency and potentially causing breakdowns. The pre-filter ahead captures these impurities, thus safeguarding the water softener from damage and extending its lifespan.

Improved efficiency of the water softener:

When the water entering the water softener is clean and free of solid particles, the water softener can operate more efficiently. Water softeners primarily remove calcium and magnesium ions responsible for water hardness. By eliminating upstream sediments and impurities, the pre-filter allows the water softener to focus on its primary task, which is reducing water hardness.

Enhanced water quality:

A pre-filter can also contribute to improving the water quality at the outlet of the water softener. By removing impurities and contaminants present in raw water, the filter helps produce cleaner and purer softened water, which is particularly important for uses such as drinking water and protecting household appliances.

Reduced maintenance:

By preventing sediments and particles from entering the water softener, you reduce the need for frequent cleaning and maintenance of the water softener. This can save you time and money in the long run. Cintropur fine screens are much cheaper than traditional cartridges. The sleeves of 150 and 300 ┬Ám are washable!

In conclusion, installing a filter upstream of your water softener is a smart measure to ensure better water quality, protect your water softener from potential damage, and improve its efficiency. It also contributes to extending the lifespan of the water softener and reducing maintenance frequency. By investing in a pre-filter, you can enjoy the benefits of high-quality softened water for all your domestic needs.
