Why Soft Water?
First of all, what is soft water?
According to the US Geological Survey, 85% of the United States has what’s called “hard water”, this means the water has an excessive amount of the hard minerals calcium and magnesium, most excessive in well water.
When calcium is heated, it can create calcium deposits causing havoc in appliances. These minerals are not harmful to drink (except for being linked to kidney stones over long periods of time), however they can cause all kinds of problems with your skin, hair, household appliances, pipes, clothes, and not to mention scum all over everything.
The Hydrotech™ salt water system removes these pesky hard minerals including all other unwanted pest such as bacteria and heavy iron. The water can now be called "soft water".
You may have heard about “Salt-free” water softeners, but in reality they don’t exist. True soft water is defined as less than one grain per gallon (gpg) of minerals in your water. The so called “salt-free” softeners cannot do this.
Hard water is a pest that we don't have to live with in a civilized world.
