Advantages of Using Salt-Free Water Softening
By Deepak Mishra
That 75% of earth’s surface covered by water is an exciting fact, but only less than 1% of this water is available for human use and that is a worrying fact. The situation is so dire that according to UNICEF 1 in 10 people lack access to safe water. With over 85% of the world’s population lacking safe water, it is imperative for home owners to look for ways to make use of the available resource. This is how water treatment has become such an important aspect in every household.
Brief Overview of Salt-Free Water Softening
Many ideas have been developed to make safe water more accessible to the population. Over the last 50 years, there have been tremendous advances in water treatment technology with salt-free water softening being among the most recognizable technologies with Magnetizer® leading this effort on the world stage. If you are looking for the best way to treat water in your home or office, it is important to get more insight on what this system offers in order to make an informed buying choice.
To appreciate what salt free water softeners are all about, it is important to start with the concept of water softening in general. The practical problem with water plumbing is the fact that water has high mineral content and acidity. This is what is referred to as water hardness and many devices and technologies have been made to deal with the problem.
Why Salt-Free Hard Water Softening?
In conventional water softening, the goal is to remove Calcium (Ca2+) and Magnesium (Mg2+) through ion exchange. A sodium particle is given off in exchange for the hardness minerals. This means the hardness minerals are removed from the water, making it soft.
Salt-free hard water softeners or water conditioners as they are mostly known, such as Magnetizer® help reduce the buildup of lime scale, which is a big concern in plumbing systems and cooking appliances. This is the chalky substance that remains on surfaces. The best thing about the salt-free water softeners is the fact that minerals are not removed from the water but are changed into hydrated structure that will not adhere to wall surfaces.
There are many reasons to go for a salt-free water softener: no adherence of hard minerals on appliances and plumbing, there is less water wastage, less soap usage, no-maintenance for the system, no electricity costs and no chemicals used. These systems cost less to operate and this is the way to go if you are looking for an affordable, effective and low-maintenance water softener.
Modern technology has now evolved, making it possible for homeowners to access new green Magnetizer® products, such as salt-free hard water softener like “RWE-S” for better tasting and healthier water, engine fuel energizers that save your automotive fuel by better burning it thus lowering the emissions, or biomagnetic treatment for home therapy and better health.
