A water softener is a water treatment system that reduces the hardness in the water down to below one grain per gallon. In order to do this, chemicals such as salt are used in the treatment of the water. A salt-based water softener will provide brighter laundry using less soap and will prevent the buildup of scale around the shower. Many people love their water softeners for these exact reasons. The problem with a water softener system is that it uses salt which may be harmful to the environment. Salt is critical for the water softener to function. If you are environmentally conscious and are looking to get similar results without salt, then you NEED a salt-free water conditioner.
The benefits you will see from a salt-free water conditioner are somewhat similar to that of a water softener. A salt-free water conditioner will break up scale and prevent it from sticking together, making it easy to remove without the need of additional cleaners. Water treated by a salt-free water conditioner causes the calcium and magnesium to stick together in seed crystals through a physical media. Because a physical media is used in place of salt, a water conditioner is considered safer for the environment. A salt-free water conditioner makes a great choice for those that don’t want to purchase heavy bags of salt.
Because the salt-free water conditioner does not soften the water, your clothes will not be any brighter or whiter and you will use about 50% more soap. A salt-free water conditioner will also not make your dishes spot-free after a wash. Lastly, a salt-free water conditioner will not completely remove the scale buildup from your showers; it only makes it easier to remove. If you are looking for a these effects from your water, then you should really consider a Water Softener.
At Us Water Systems, we recommend the Green Wave Salt-Free Water Conditioner. The Green Wave is our premier brand with several models to meet any budget. The Green Wave has been lab tested to remove chlorine and prevent scale buildup. If you are looking for a salt-free water conditioner there really is none better.
The Green Wave uses a process called MEP which is the same as TAC. Arizona State University did a study and found this method to be 96% effective in treating scale. ASU tested the most viable methods and Nuvo wasn’t one of them. HERE are the results:
The Nuvo H2O adds citric acid to the water (which I am not crazy about). Theoretically, with enough citric acid, it could work, but I wouldn’t want that kind of water in my house. The Green Wave is proven technology that adds nothing to the water.
The Green Wave Water Conditioner Systems are salt free water treatment systems that create clean water, prevent scale and reduces your water of harmful chemicals like chlorine, without having to constantly buy salt for your water softener. We call our systems water conditioners, not salt free water softeners, because it is scientifically impossible to have soft water without salt, which would make it impossible to have a real No Salt Water Softener. With a Green Wave Salt-Free water conditioner, you prevent scale and remove the harmful contaminants, while leaving the beneficial minerals.
