Which water softener is right for you?

When it comes to choosing the right salt-free water softener system for your home, NuvoH2O has a wide range of premium, effective solutions. Our salt-free water softeners use citric acid instead of salt to bind to minerals and reduce scale build-up in your water. This means that minerals such as calcium and magnesium are effectively bound to the citric acid, and prevented from forming limescale. NuvoH2O salt-free water softeners are more efficient than salt models, saving you money in the long run. But how do you know which of our whole-home water softeners is right for your needs? One of the first things you should determine is what size you'll need. Below, you'll find more information about how to find the best salt-free water softener size for your home.

We want to make sure you are getting the system that will suit your needs and give you the results you are looking for.

NuvoH2O® Water Softeners are designed for different sizes of homes and to last through specific water usage. For instance, the NuvoH2O Home Water Softener is designed for homes of 1,500 square feet or less and will need a cartridge replacement every 20,000 gallons. The NuvoH2O Manor Water Softener is designed for homes with a square footage greater than 1,500 square feet and will need a cartridge replacement every 50,000 gallons. On average, our customers need to replace their cartridges every six months.


Different salt-free water softeners' sizes should be based on the number of people in your household. The larger the household, the greater the water demand, and therefore a larger salt-free water softener model is necessary.

For instance, if you have a large family that uses a lot of water, you may need to consider buying a salt-free water softener that can handle the increased demand. On the other hand, if you live alone or with a roommate, then a salt-free water softener that is designed for smaller households may be more appropriate. We offer a wide range of salt-free water softeners that are tailored to the needs of different households.


The size of your salt-free water softener also should depend upon how much water your home uses. If you use more water, then the salt-free water softener needs to be larger to keep up with demand. 

Furthermore, if you have a large salt-free water softener and don’t use much water, then it may be overworking itself. This can cause damage to the salt-free water softener and reduce its efficiency, resulting in higher energy costs. Our team can help you determine which size may be right for you based on your specific household water intake. 

Water pressure is another important factor when considering salt-free water softener sizing. Low water pressure may mean a salt-free water softener needs to be bigger than normal because it will need to work harder to process the same amount of water as one with higher pressure. On the other hand, if you have high water pressure, then you may be able to get away with a smaller salt-free water softener model.


Finally, you should consider what your goals are for salt-free water softener usage. If you want to soften all of the water in your home, then you may need a salt-free water softener that is larger than normal. On the other hand, if you only want to soften certain areas such as your dishwasher or water heater, our point-of-use systems that target specific areas of your home may be best.
At NuvoH2O, we offer salt-free water softeners in a range of sizes and styles to meet the needs of any household. Our team is here to help you find the salt-free water softener size that fits perfectly into your budget and lifestyle.
