You may have heard that a salt-free system can save you money while reducing scale damage with zero waste. What exactly is a salt-free system and why should I want one?
First, let’s start with the science behind it. A salt-free system is a type of water-softening system that does not use salt to remove hard water minerals. Instead, it uses a process called ion exchange to swap the hard minerals for softer ones. This process not only saves you money on salt, but it also reduces the amount of scale buildup in your pipes and appliances.
On the other hand, traditional ion-exchange water conditioners leave behind a sodium and chloride solution that’s periodically drained away. With a salt-free system, you can reduce your carbon footprint, electricity usage, and water consumption.
These conditioners use a type of technology that conditions water without backflushing or salt, which can save you money on your water bill. This method is environmentally friendly because it has little to no environmental impact.
Let’s Look A Little Closer at How They Work
A salt-free water conditioner is a water filtration system that uses micro-crystals to remove magnesium and calcium minerals from hard water. These minerals can attach to pipes and water heaters in the form of scale, but the micro-crystals in the conditioner prevent this from happening.
As we already mentioned, traditional water softeners use a process called ion exchange to get rid of hardness minerals. In this process, plastic resin beads are rinsed with a solution that has been charged with salt ions. As hard water flows through these beads, the sodium ions replace the magnesium and calcium ions. The end result is softened water exiting the tank and into your house; however, there will be low amounts of sodium present as well from the softening process.
Although water softeners have gotten some bad press because of their sodium content, the amount of sodium they add is actually quite minimal. Salt-based softeners also use regeneration cycles to replace the resin beads with sodium ions. The result of this is an increased amount of brine in city water drain lines, which has caused some municipalities to ban water softeners. This has led people to seek out alternatives that don’t use salt.
Why a Salt-Free System is a Great Choice
A salt-free system can be just as effective as a traditional water softener, but without using any salt. This kind of system works by reducing the formation of scale from minerals such as calcium and magnesium. However, it doesn’t get rid of these minerals completely–it just stops them from forming into damaging scale.
This easy-to-use, anti-scaling media will protect your home’s major appliances and plumbing from scale build-up, making it a snap to clean out your tub or sink. Plus, you’ll never have to purchase salt for it!
