Salt Free Softeners/Conditioners and WHY WE DON’T SELL THEM!
You will find supposed “Salt Free” Water Softeners and “Water Conditioners” all over the internet. If these pseudoscience devices actually worked, then we would sell them! See the four various types below. Don’t be scammed! Call us or email us for a true water softener quote today!
Electronic Wrap-Around Pipe Type
These are simply an electronic circuit board that connects to thin wires which wrap around the outside of your pipes. It is said that it would take the power from Niagra Falls to create enough of an energy field to make an electromagnet work against a small household pipe. Hardly scientific. Marketed as a “de-scaler” these self-installed devices absolutely do nothing. Please read the reviews about these online.
Tank and Media Without a Control Valve Type
These are nothing more than a fiberglass tank with filtration media inside (carbon and an “anti-scale” media). These sellers cannot substantiate their claims with laboratory test results because they won’t pass the test. They claim that they prevent scale and some boldly say that they softener your water but they do not. These types of scams are commonly called “water conditioners” so avoid the legality of being wrong about their false claims. Pelican and Aquasana are two of the brand names that sell these online and we have replaced many because they simply do not soften the water.
These are nothing more than an inexpensive filter housing with a water softening resin cartridge inside. The cartridge needs to be replaced very often at a high annual cost. Don’t waste your time and money as the monitoring and cartridge replacement is not something that you have room for in your busy life!
Magnetic Clamp Around Pipe Type
There are dozens of these cheap do-it-yourself “magnetic water conditioning” products on the Internet, but you will be hard pressed to find one in a local bricks and mortar store. These pseudoscience devices came about in the 1930s and have been fraudulently fooling customers since that time. They all carry money back guarantees which keeps the companies that sell these scams out of trouble.
