What Are the Alternatives to a Water Softening System?

Dealing with hard water is not only a nuisance, but it can make you lose money and deteriorates your property and your own health over time.

Hard water contains high levels of minerals such as limestone, chalk, or gypsum, which lead to build-ups inside the pipes, staining of your bathroom and kitchen fixtures, deterioration of your appliances, shorter lifespan of your clothes, deposits on your dishes, and a poor health of your skin and hair.

What Is Water Softening?

Since hard water causes so many problems, many homeowners and businesses are looking for ways to soften or condition the water in their water system.

One of the most commonly used methods for water softening is ion-exchange, in which calcium and magnesium particles are replaced by sodium and potassium. We will discuss more about this method below.

There are alternatives to this method, which are used more and more in modern days to promote more sustainable water softening solutions.

What Are Salt-Free Water Softening Solutions?

Culligan’s salt-free water conditioner system helps reduce limescale buildup in your kitchen and bathroom. However, it does not remove the minerals found in hard water. Our system uses an anti-scaling resin to alter the chemical structure of the minerals, which can make it easier to clean buildup from your faucets and drains. You can also pair our salt-free water softener with a pre-carbon filter to help reduce foul odors and chlorine, so you have water that tastes, smells, and feels better.

Culligan Water’s salt-free conditioner is an affordable alternative to complete water softening systems, and can still benefit you and your home in several ways:

  • Improve the feel of your water.
  • Reduce time spent cleaning your kitchen and bathroom fixtures.
  • Help maintain the efficiency of your water using appliances.
  • Reducing wear and tear on your plumbing and fixtures, thus saving money in repair and replacement costs.
