To understand how a water softener and water filter can work in tandem to help improve your home’s water system, it’s important to understand what each one of them actually does. A water softener is a whole-house filtration system that removes hardness-causing magnesium and calcium minerals from your water. If you do have hard water in your home, a water softener can help address and prevent the issues that would otherwise arise if you didn’t do anything about hard water.
