If you live in Central Texas, treating your water is almost always a good idea, as it tends to be very mineral-rich–which can cause buildup and leave residue with everyday use. Luckily, there are several ways to treat your water… But which way is best? At Clear Water of San Marcos, we believe a salt-free water softener (conditioner) is the right way to go.
Below we take a look at 5 reasons to consider Salt-Free vs Traditional Water Softeners
1) You don’t have to check the salt levels every month
Since there’s no salt, you naturally won’t have to worry about checking the salt levels every month-month and a half.
2) You don’t have to buy salt
Just like with number one above, there’s no salt, which means you save money. Who doesn’t like to save money??
3) There are no salt bridges to eliminate
You don’t have to worry about moisture causing the salt to crust (since there is none!). These are especially troublesome because once one forms and you break it apart, more are likely to form quicker–but not with a salt-free system.
4) Less chance of equipment malfunction
Salt-free systems are less prone to malfunctioning by design–there’s fewer moving parts to worry about. However, we still recommend checking your system every few months.
5) You never have to clean the brine tank
Usually with a salt-based system, you’ll need to clean your brine tank once or twice a year… and it’s not the most fun task. Once again, with a no-salt system, you’re in the clear.
As you can see, salt-free water softening systems generally require much less maintenance than their counterparts. They take advantage of newer technology, which in turn makes your life a bit easier; you can enjoy the benefits of treated water without all the hassle.
