What is the Difference Between Drinking Water, Purified Water and Soft Water?

Dec. 25, 2020

As a Ro Water Purifier Supplier, share with you.

1. Direct drinking water: As the name suggests, it refers to water that can be directly drunk.

At present, nano-filtered water, ultra-filtered water and pure water belong to the category of direct drinking water.

2. Purified water: All purified water can be called purified water.

This range can be large. According to the current purification process, coarse filtered water, ultra-filtered water, nano-filtered water, purified water, etc. belong to this category.

However, many people mistakenly think that purified water is water that can be directly drunk. In fact, they confuse the concept of purified water and direct drinking water. Most of the purified water can only be used for daily cleaning, washing a bowl, taking a bath, etc. , Of course, if you mean after boiling, just drink it.

3. Soft water: refers to water that does not contain or contains less soluble calcium and magnesium compounds.

Natural soft water generally refers to river water, river water, and lake water. If you want to get soft water daily, you can boil it or use a water softener.

After reading this part, do you have a preliminary impression of various water quality?

With this initial impression, you can quickly tell which filters can be used to drink water directly, and which ones need to be boiled. General water purifier vendors can't fool you!

In the second step, let's take a closer look at the characteristics and functions of various types of water quality.

Since there are too many types of purified water and the effect is not outstanding, we will not expand it in detail here. We will focus on distinguishing between the more common ultra-filtered water and pure water in direct drinking water, as well as the more distinctive soft water, which is also great The three waters most people care about most.

Before the specific introduction, let's rank them according to the water quality:

Pure water>ultrafiltration water>soft water

Soft water

The concept of soft water is relative to hard water. Ordinary household tap water is alkaline and harder. By reducing or removing calcium and magnesium ions, the water quality can be changed from hard to soft, that is, soft water.

Pure water

Pure water refers to H2O without impurities. From an academic point of view, pure water, also known as high purity water, refers to water with extremely high chemical purity. Because it does not contain substances other than H2O, it is also the safest water.

Drinking water

Compared with raw water (usually tap water), it removes rust, silt, suspended solids, bacteria, algae and other harmful substances, and retains minerals and trace elements that are beneficial to the human body. But it cannot remove all metal ions, nor can it filter out calcium and magnesium ions.
