North Port, FL Salt Free Water Softeners
What are the benefits of a salt free water softener?
After you’ve finished installing a water softener, the water coursing through the veins of the home (i.e. the plumbing) is now soft.
Easier cleaning – no more hard water stains on fixtures, appliances, or clothing
Less soap and detergent detergents and soaps required
Increased longevity of water-using appliances (no mineral buildup on their insides!)
Softer skin and hair
Cleaner, spotless dishes and cutlery
How a salt free water softener works:
A salt-free water conditioner is a water filtration system that crystallizes magnesium and calcium minerals prevalent in hard water. These micro-crystals are unable to leave solution and attach to pipes and water heaters in the form of scale. Water conditioners do not remove hardness minerals, they physically alter them and render them unable to form scale build-ups.
Traditional water softeners eliminate hardness minerals through a process called ion exchange. In an ion exchange process, plastic resin beads are rinsed with a salt solution that charges each bead with a sodium ion. When the hard water flows through these beads, the sodium ions exchange with the magnesium and calcium ions. The water exiting the tank and into the house is now softened, but does contain low amounts of sodium as a byproduct of the softening process.
