Saltless Systems

Some critics have called the no salt water softening system a scam, partially because of the many dubious claims made by the manufacturers. These systems aren’t capable of removing minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, which is necessary to truly “soften” water. These no salt systems simply try to break down the hardness in the water, with little to no efficient outcome.

Independent studies have shown that salt-free water softeners are not as effective as a traditional salt-based water softener. When both salt-based and salt-free systems were tested in clinical trials, it was found that the salt-free system had very little to no effect on the chemical and physical composition of the water. It was further shown that these salt-free systems were unable to reduce mineral deposits left in water pipes and faucets. Salt-free systems were unable to rid water of any type on iron or manganese that may or may not be in the water as well.

The traditional salt-based water softener is still the one to rely on for great overall performance and cost-effectiveness.

TX Membrane

TX Membrane

The TX Membrane system is the most advanced salt-free water system available. It’s completely non-electric and does not use salt like conventional models. The TX Membrane system can take on iron, odor-causing impurities and chlorine. The semipermeable membrane filter traps these contaminants so only water can pass through. The TX also features a disinfection generator, a large capacity tank and finishing-stage carbon filters for premium taste appeal.

Scale Reduction Systems

Scale Reduction Systems

Much of our water supply passes through rock, so it often contains hardness minerals like calcium and magnesium. When the temperature of water increases, the hardness minerals form scale, which clings to pipes, heating elements and fixtures. This scale buildup makes any water-using appliance that heats water (such as your water heater and dishwasher) work harder and can decrease its useful life. Scale reduction systems do not work the same as water softeners. They do not remove the hardness minerals and do not soften water; they change the structure of the minerals in the water so they don’t form scale.

RO Whole House Treatment Systems

RO Whole House Treatment Systems

These systems use semipermeable membranes to trap contaminants, iron, hardness and odor-causing impurities before they enter your home. Because of their expense, they are often reserved for the toughest and most complex water challenges.

Ultraviolet Disinfection Systems

These systems work by using ultraviolet light to kill microorganisms and make your water microbiologically safe to drink. While UV systems are very effective at disinfecting your water, that is their sole function. To resolve issues like hard water, iron and odor-causing impurities, you would need to add another saltless system like the SRS or a whole house treatment system.
