Softeners and Filters - The Difference!
Filtering separates out and collects particles when water moves through a media. Water filters work great for removing sulfides and other particles that give water a bad flavor or odor. Filters are effective for small volumes of water. Filtering water, however, does not remove dissolved minerals, such as iron, calcium and magnesium. These dissolved minerals are removed by using a water softener as described in the How does a water softener work section.
