Shell Water Systems, Salt Based water softener with Vortech technology REMOVES hardness from the water. Water pressure through the mineral tank, the positively charged calcium and magnesium ions are lost to negatively charged resin beads. After so many gallons used or days reached the system will pull a brine solution that flushes the mineral tank and recharge the beads. Unlike regular filter tanks that use gravel and are prone to channeling, where the water can by-pass the media and travel up the side of the tank, the Vortech tank prevents channeling. This increases the softening capacity and the amount of backwashing saving you thousands of gallons of water and salt usage. Our unit requires 30% less time to backwash and cleans the tank of residue and particulate matter better than any other design!

We've had this Shell Water System for about 5 months and really like it. I recently had a question about the system and they were super helpful and friendly. At somepoint within the year, I hope to install their RO system which also adds back the minerals (this was important as i was doing my research and something I was concerned about). We live in Houston and water quality is a big priority/concern for us. I'd for sure recommend

In the Bathroom: Your soap and shampoo will lather better. Your hair and skin will feel noticeably cleaner, softer and not as dry. Additionally, there will be no soap scum or mineral deposits to clean off sinks, showers, tub and toilets.

In the Kitchen: Dishes will clean up more easily, and be spot-free, without the gray film glass gets when etched by mineral laden wear. Plus hands will feel softer and look better.

In the Laundry: Clothes will be softer, cleaner, whiter and brighter, and last longer. Using soft water and pure soap products increases the life of clothing, towels and linens up to 33%. Without hard water service issues, washing machines will last longer, too.

Plumbing and Appliances: Appliances that use water will last longer and run better. Why? Because water heaters, washing machines and dishwashers using hard water can wear out 30% faster.
