Improve the quality of residential water

Homeowners want safe, clean drinking water and soft water for bathing, laundry, and dish washing. In today’s world, however, drinking water may contain a broad range of impurities and contaminants, depending on the source of the water supply and the quality of water treatment. Along with water-borne diseases, some of these contaminants can lead to health risks, along with significant household maintenance problems.

With more than 30 years of experience in water treatment and a proven track record of performance and reliability, DuPont Water Solutions offers a range of proven residential water-treatment options for clean and safe drinking water, leading to a better quality of life and peace of mind.

Eliminate the effects of hardness and heavy metals in feed water 

Hard water contains significant quantities of dissolved minerals like calcium and magnesium that can have many adverse effects in the home, costing homeowners in the long run. Hard-water buildup can take a toll on household appliances and cause problems, such as spots and residue on dishes, dull hair, and dingy-looking clothing. In addition, heavy metals, such as arsenic, lead, and mercury, can be found in tap water and pose serious health risks.

Our residential water softening technology uses ion exchange (IX) resins to protect hot water heaters and piping, eliminate spotting on glassware, and decrease the amount of detergents needed.

Get purer, safer tap water

Homeowners demand clean drinking water — and safe drinking water — that tastes good and can be used for cooking and bathing. Tap water, however, may contain naturally occurring contaminants, such as pesticides and fungicides used in agriculture, organic solvents, trace pharmaceuticals, and heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, and mercury. 

Reverse osmosis (RO) is among the most effective technologies for removing contaminants and disease-causing bacteria and viruses from drinking water. We offer a range of reverse osmosis (RO) elements for under-the-sink and counter-top water filtration units. These solutions offer families a convenient, affordable, and very reliable water purification alternative. 

Improve taste and safety of drinking water

We offer ion exchange (IX) resins that work in home water pitcher filters. These filters help remove hardness and heavy metals in water, with active carbon to improve taste — transforming it into great-tasting, safe, and clean drinking water.
