How It Works

NuvoH2O provides healthy, innovative products that prevent AND remove the effects of hard water.

When it comes to whole-home water softeners, there are many options on the market. It can be difficult to decide which one is right for your needs and your home and to do so, it's important to understand how each whole-home water softener works. NuvoH2O is a whole home water softening system that uses salt-free technology. It works by using citric acid and other compounds to prevent hard water minerals from sticking to surfaces in your plumbing system, resulting in softer water throughout your whole house.

Two Factors

What contributes to the efficiency of NuvoH2O's water softeners?

NuvoH2O's systems effectively softens water by eliminating the negative effects of hard water with the use of citrus, not salt. It does this while retaining the beneficial minerals resulting in softer, healthier, and better-tasting water.

There are two factors that contribute to the efficiency of NuvoH2O's water softeners:

The first factor , that contributes to the efficiency of our water softeners is a decreased amount of measured pH in your home’s water. pH is a measure of acidic or basic as the water passes through pipes. By reducing the pH of water, NuvoH2O salt-free water softener systems are able to reduce or eliminate the formation of scale by keeping the hard minerals from sticking to surfaces.

Secondly, instead of removing beneficial minerals the way traditional salt softeners do, the NuvoH2O salt-free water softener system binds and isolates the hard mineral ions with a process known as chelation. Once bound to CitraCharge®, NuvoH2O’s binding agent, the minerals in your water become unable to form scale, which can damage your appliances and plumbing systems.

A Salt-Free Softener That Actually Works

In a study conducted by the Battelle Group, it was determined that the NuvoH20 salt-free water softeners do indeed prevent scale from forming. Additionally, it was found that NuvoH2O can also reverse existing hard water issues, making it a great whole-home solution for both prevention and remediation. 


Finally, NuvoH2O whole-home water softeners will protect your plumbing from damage due to scale build-up. Generally, when there is hard water scaling, it can lead to reduced water flow and damage to pipes over time. By using a salt-free whole-home water softener, you can prevent this kind of damage and keep your plumbing working as it should.
