Salt based system require salt and water to soften the water. This has been an older methodology that many people adopted. The problem with this solution results in water waste and potential amount of salt that might get diluted in the water. It also uses some form of draining system to dispose of diluted salt and water. Some cities around the United States has banned this system due to water waste and shortage.
The salt-free based solutions are becoming the trend, but they are pricey. But there are a number of affordable whole house water purification/softener systems that are very affordable and reliable. The one system we came across is the Express Water softener/filtration system. When we first looked at this product, we were hesitant . There are not too many reviews about this product, but once we purchased it for our office usage, we could not been any happier with our decision.
They offer three types of whole home salt free water softener systems:
1. Standard- This system provides a general water purification system for the whole house.
2. Anti-Scale, and this system Prevent the formation of Scale and Corrosion - Shower without harsh chlorine - Protect your Appliances from Damage
3. Heavy Metal- This system Filters Dangerous Heavy Metals - Shower without harsh chlorine - Protect your Appliances from Damage
Here in our office, we have been using the Anti-Scale 3 stage filtration system. for the last few months our water system has become pure, delicious, and drinkable. Our water is clean and it tastes very good. We highly recommend this salt free water softener/filtration system.
