Can the water softened by the water softener be directly drunk?
Views : 1 Update time : 2022-03-12 11:41:16 As the "terminator of scale", "the secret weapon for protecting home appliances", and "the magic weapon for beauty and beauty", water softeners have gradually become popular in my country in the past two years. However, many owners have such doubts that the water filtered by the water softener Can I drink it? If the water filtered by the water softener can be drunk, on the one hand, it can completely solve the problem of scale, and it can also solve the problem of healthy drinking water. For families, wouldn’t it save a lot of money?
1. Increased sodium ionsAt present, most of the water softeners on the market are traditional ion exchange technology. Through the exchange of functional ions on the resin with calcium and magnesium ions in the water, the excess calcium and magnesium ions in the water are adsorbed to remove scale (calcium carbonate or magnesium carbonate). the goal of.
Due to the removal of calcium, magnesium ions and other ions, and a large increase of sodium ions, excessive intake of sodium salts will cause the intake of other electrolytes, such as potassium ions, which play a vital role in maintaining the function of the heart Therefore, excessive intake of sodium ions will cause the intake of potassium ions in the heart to decrease, so that calcium ions enter the heart in large quantities, which strengthens cardiac contractility (cardiotonic effect), increases blood pressure, and can seriously cause arrhythmia and even ventricular fibrillation. (very serious heart disease), therefore, the intake of salt in the human body should be controlled within a reasonable range.
According to experts, a daily intake of around four grams of sodium is reasonable. Therefore, the water filtered by the water softener cannot be directly drunk, and it is not suitable for daily drinking water and kitchen cooking water.
2. Can only handle domestic waterThe household water softener can effectively reduce the hardness of household water, use soft water to reduce various gastrointestinal calculi, maintain the performance of water heaters, central air conditioners, and floor heating systems, and prolong the service life of equipment. Soft water for washing, bathing, moisturizing the skin, smooth and delicate. Wash your clothes with soft water to keep them soft and shiny as new!
(1) Personal care:
The rich, easy-to-clean shower foam leaves skin smooth and wrinkle-free. Avoids the formation of soap scum that clogs pores and maintains smooth, hydrated skin for a long time. Shampoo hair is not dry, yellow, no split ends, elegant and shiny.
(2) Clothes washing:
Clothes are no longer yellowed, faded, deformed, remain soft and compliant, and the colors are more vivid. The towel is soft, fluffy and highly absorbent. Detergent usage is reduced by 55% and laundry fibres are washed 32% more often.
(3) Appliance cleaning:
Tableware and utensils are easy to clean, without water stains and stains, and are crystal clear. The small holes of the shower head no longer have white scale, and the water flow is unobstructed. Toilets, sinks and bathtubs are no longer yellow, scaled, and smelly.
3. It won't work if it's boiled
The water filtered by the water softener boils only to kill some viruses and bacteria. It cannot change the content of single molecules in the water. If the water is hard, heating will reduce calcium and magnesium ions (crystallization). The water softener mainly softens the water quality and solves the trouble of domestic water. , and the real solution to the drinking water problem requires the installation of a direct drinking machine to fully filter harmful substances in the water to meet the standard of raw drinking.
