Soft Water...  the Facts

UNDERSTANDING  THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOFT WATER & ELECTRICAL SCALE REDUCTION

WHAT’S THAT OLD SAYING... "IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE; IT PROBABLY IS!"

Some manufacturers of electrical devices that attach to your pipes make the claim that this process produces soft water.  These devices can have the ability under certain circumstances to help reduce the amount of scaling inside your pipes and fixtures…but these devices do not remove calcium so they DO NOT produce soft water.

To get soft water, you need to remove the calcium.  Presently, there is only ONE practical way for homeowners to soften their water and that is through an ion exchange water softener. 

This website provides you,  the consumer, the facts you need to analyze the many product claims in the marketplace and have a better understanding about what you are buying.  

Knowing the basics about the science of soft water can help you know what questions to ask when trying to determine what’s best for your home
