ZERO WASTE WATER!
Some of our competitors refer to salt-free hard water conditioning as a “salt-free water softener.” While this is technically not correct, this technology does provide most of the same benefits of a water softener.
When water begins to flow into the bottom of the treatment tank, the SP3 media is lifted and dispersed throughout the treatment tank in a fluidized bed which enhances contact with the calcium and magnesium ions in the water. A contact time of only 5 seconds is required for the treatment of up to 25 grains per gallon of hardness. Since the system is operated in a fluidized upflow configuration, the system will not clog with sediment and no backwashing is required.
The presence of elevated levels of chlorine, iron, manganese, hydrogen sulfide, copper, and certain other contaminants can damage SP3 media, reducing its effectiveness and shortening its life. While the media can handle the typical chlorine levels found in municipal water sources, to maximize media life, it is generally recommended that chlorinated city water be pre-filtered through Shell Water Systems Whole House Filtration to remove free chlorine before the Go Natural Salt Free system.
The 10 inch 5 micron post filter will remove fine sand, dust and silt. It also eliminates the large crystal formation from entering the home.
Benefits of Nucleation Assisted Crystallization Technology:
- Prolongs the life of appliances
- Minimizes hardness buildup on fixtures and pipes
- Makes cleaning easier
- Leaves in beneficial minerals
- No backwash – save thousands of gallons of water per year
- Simple operation with no day-to-day maintenance
- No salt, no chemical regeneration, and no brine discharge!
