Water Softeners

Contrary to popular belief, most traditional water softeners cause at least as many problems as they solve. To be sure, water softeners typically succeed at the central task for which they have been designed: removing those minerals in hard water that can cause scale buildup in pipes and water heaters. However, both the removal of such minerals and the means by which most systems remove them present serious drawbacks.

Perhaps most important among these drawbacks is the often-overlooked fact that our bodies actually need most of the minerals in hard water. Indeed, the very calcium and magnesium which typically build up and damage the health of our homes' plumbing are essential to our bodies' plumbing. By robbing our drinking water of these minerals, then, water softeners protect our homes' well-being at the expense of our own.

Water Softeners Damage Pipes

Worse still, the lion's share of whole house water filtration systems actually do as much to damage our pipes as they do to protect them. By using salt and other corrosive chemicals to remove hard water's scale-building minerals, these water softeners effectively substitute scale buildup for piping breakdown. If that does not sound like a significant improvement to you, you are not alone.

How can anyone hope to protect their plumbing and their own health at the same time? This question has driven top water filtration experts for years. And for the first time, the leading experts in the field finally have a comprehensive answer.

An Innovative Alternative to Water Softeners

The best new systems neither remove healthy minerals from hard water nor replace them with corrosive salts, but rather restructure those minerals in a way that allows them to pass through our homes' plumbing and safely into our own bodies. Nothing unhealthy added, nothing healthy taken away--just safe, clean drinking water.

The key to this remarkable alternative to water softeners is a proprietary technique based on carbon filtration. This technological alternative to water softeners, salt-dependent systems, and reverse osmosis simultaneously converts calcium and magnesium into less adhesive forms and removes the objectionable smell and taste of chlorine. When you consider the fact that such carbon filtration systems actually pay for themselves by extending the life of your pipes and water-dependent appliances, this alternative becomes even more appealing.

The Choice is Yours

Now that the premier water treatment systems combine the nutrition of hard water and the safety of soft water, there is no longer any reason to make impossible choices. If you know where to look, you can have the best of both worlds. With the health of your family and your home on the line, why settle for less?
