Get the Hard facts about “Salt Free” or "Non Salt" Water Softeners.

So you want to buy a salt-free water softener or a non-salt water softener? 

We would love to help you but we are unable to due to the fact that SALT-FREE or NON SALT water softeners do not exist. If they did, we would be selling them.

Having been in residential, commercial and industrial water treatment since 1998 we have found very few products that are effective “Game Changer” type products that actually do what they say that they do.

The salt-free or non-salt water softeners are mainly sold by marketing companies. These marketing companies do a fantastic job of creating effective literature and images touting their systems as a great alternative to salt-based water softeners. They present certifications and testing results from foreign certified labs and customers that provide amazing reviews. Unfortunately what is not provided are actual system certifications or testing results on the effectiveness of the “salt-free water softeners” by companies based in the U.S. The Water Quality Association (WQA) has not certified the system as an effective form of softening water. The certifications that are put on these systems basically state that the systems are safe. The certification states nothing in regards to the system and how effectively it softens the water. These systems do not, by definition, reduce the water hardness level by reducing the hardness of the water to below 1 grain per gallon. That is how the WQA defines soft water > 1 GPG. The results of a hardness test performed on water that has passed through a salt-free water softener remain unchanged. What does this mean? It means the water is not soft. It is as simple as that. Salt-free water softeners will not soften the water. It will also not provide the true benefits of having soft water such as using less soap, less cleaning products, and keeping clothes soft and lasting longer. 

Effectively Soften Your Water with Less Salt

If you are truly interested in softening your water and using far less salt, we suggest you consider upflow type salt-based water softeners. We sell a very reliable upFlow water softener in our Genesis Upflow line of water softeners. Conventional water softeners typically regenerate in a downflow manner. The Genesis Upflow water softeners are far more efficient using as little as 6 lbs. of salt per regeneration compared to older downflow systems that consume 15 lbs of salt per regeneration on a 32,000 grain water softener. Our Genesis High Efficiency water softeners also reduce water usage on each regeneration by about 2/3 over the older down flow water softeners. All of our Genesis Upflow systems also carry a more comprehensive warranty up to 10 years on the mechanical portions and lifetime on the tanks. And yes, our Genesis systems are tested and certified by the WQA for effectiveness for softening the water.
