You can see that in most cases, the EasyWater® No-Salt Conditioner™ will do a much better job than a traditional softener. Now the challenge will be to determine which of these things are most important to you, and the degree to which they’re important – because each system will do almost everything on the list, to some degree.

What does a water softener do?

A water softener will remove hardness minerals, and to a lesser extent, iron and manganese, from water and replace these lost minerals with sodium or potassium. A typical water softener will allow soaps to lather better, will cause water to feel more slick on the skin, reduce water spotting, and reduce future hard water build-up inside plumbing and appliances. It is not designed to remove unhealthy contaminants, or to remove existing hard water build-up.

What does the EasyWater® No-Salt Conditioner™ do?

The EasyWater® No-Salt Water Conditioner™ is considered a water conditioner, and not a water softener, because it does not remove calcium or magnesium from water. Rather than removing the hardness minerals, the EasyWater® No-Salt Conditioner™ physically changes them to keep them from adhering to surfaces. In this way, the EasyWater® No-Salt Conditioner™ will protect against scale build-up, even though the minerals remain in the water.  Because there’s no need for salt, the EasyWater® No-Salt Conditioner™ is more environmentally friendly, better for your health, and easier on your wallet.
