Reduced Water Hardness

Hard water contains many dissolved minerals like calcium and magnesium, making it more difficult to clean surfaces and fabrics with regular detergents. A salt-free water softener helps reduce the hardness of your water by reducing the pH of your water. This means your detergents and soaps will be more effective, which can help you save money on costly products. Instead of removing minerals from your water, NuvoH2O salt-free water softeners use a process called chelation to bind and stabilize mineral ions, such as calcium and magnesium, to suspend them in the water. This allows water to pass through while preventing these minerals from binding to your pipes.

Improved Soap Performance

Using salt-free water softeners to reduce the hardness of your water also improves soap and detergent performance. Hard water can cause soap scum on surfaces, leaving residue behind that can be difficult to remove. This residue can also prevent detergents from fully dissolving and lathering properly, making it more difficult to clean surfaces effectively. When salt-free water softeners are used, soap scum is not created, which means soaps and detergents will work better in harder water conditions.

Reduces the Need for Extra Detergent

Hard water can also require more detergent to clean fabrics and surfaces properly. The minerals in high pH hard water create a barrier that prevents the detergents from fully saturating the surface or fabric, making it necessary to use additional solution. A salt-free water softener neutralizes these minerals and balances the pH, allowing for better saturation of soaps and detergents, reducing the overall amount of solution you need. This includes shampoos and hand soaps as well, making salt-free water softeners a great choice for those looking to save money on personal hygiene products.

Reduces Build-Up in Pipes and Fixtures

Salt-free water softeners also help reduce mineral buildup inside your pipes and fixtures. Hard water can cause calcium and magnesium deposits to accumulate on the inside of your pipes, which can eventually lead to clogs and blockages. A salt-free water softener uses a process called chelation to bind to these minerals before they have the chance to build up, helping to keep your plumbing system functioning properly. So, not only do salt-free water softeners reduce the amount of soap and detergents needed to clean your home, but they also help reduce the amount of maintenance required on your plumbing fixtures.

At NuvoH2O, we provide salt-free water softeners that use citric acid instead of salt to reduce the hardness of your water.
