Do you have hard water coming through your taps? If so, you can expect to have dry hair and skin problems, along with white film on your glasses/silverware and scale build-up inside your pipes, appliances, fixtures and shower heads.
Hard water has minerals in it– many people use a water softener in order to physically remove the hardness minerals whereas sodium (salt) is put in its place. While water softeners are popular, people don’t always like that they have to add salt, have a drain nearby, use electricity to run the softener, waste some water and then their soft water “feels slimy or slippery.”
Salt-Free Water Conditioners
What about salt-free water conditioners? They’re available and they use technology that can condition water without salt or chemicals. Besides preventing scale formation, this method of softening water produces no discharge and doesn’t require electricity!
So how does it work? Well, it can get technical, but suffice it to say it’s thanks to a process called template assisted crystallization where minerals are transformed into harmless nano-sized crystals that stay in the water. All of this is done without the use of salt!
If you don’t want to deal with salt, then consider a saltless water conditioner that doesn’t take up much space, helps conserve water, doesn’t use chemicals and won’t mess with your sodium intake. Salt-free conditioners won’t add or take away anything to your water. They don’t require maintenance and they’ll, in turn, help your appliances last longer. Tired of slimy or slippery soft water? That won’t happen with salt free options. Plus, you’ll save money because you won’t need salt, electricity or backwashing.
