An oxidizer is used to eliminate hydrogen sulfide ("rotten egg smell") and remove iron in water. This is achieved by spraying water through a compressed bubble of air in an enclosed tank. The spray increases water's surface area and enhances dissolving of air. The increased surface area provides an intermediate to enhanced oxygenation of hydrogen sulfide to sulfuric acid. These compounds acidify water and lower the pH. The water collects at the bottom of the tank, is drawn off by a bottom feeding tube, and exits the unit.

Water Softeners are "ion exchangers" that completely remove hardness ions from your water addressing both hardness scale and soap interactions. Hard water — water with a high calcium/magnesium content — enters the softener via a control valve, where it goes from top to bottom through a specially prepared resin. This resin consists of specially manufactured beads that have been saturated with sodium ions. Hardness minerals attach to the resin and are "exchanged" for sodium. This process creates soft water.
Well-designed water softeners include metered on-demand regeneration. Through this process, the hardness minerals are washed down the drain and the resin bed is rinsed, resettled, and recharged with sodium and made ready to continue softening your water.
Carbon filters are a very effective de-chlorination method. Activated carbon is ideal for eliminating chlorine, organic chemicals found in many kinds of pesticides, THMs like chloroform, and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that are components of gasoline, solvents, and industrial cleaners.
Carbon removes contaminants in two ways: the first way is through adsorption — contaminants are attracted to the surface of the activated carbon and held in the same way that a magnet attracts and holds iron filings. The second is by acting as a catalyst to change the chemical composition of some contaminants.
Ultraviolet Purification Systems are used to destroy illness-causing microorganisms by attacking their genetic core (DNA). This powerful dose of UV light eliminates their ability to reproduce, and organisms simply die. The water is purified by running it through a watertight chamber that contains an ultraviolet lamp. As water flows past, microorganisms are exposed to a lethal dose of germicidal UV energy.
