What is a Water Softener?

What is a LifeSource Salt Free Water Softener?

Unlike other water softeners, LifeSource removes dirt and chlorine from water but leaves the healthy minerals such as calcium and magnesium. LifeSource's Salt-Free Water Softener Alternative conditions the minerals to reduce the problem of having water stick to counter tops, shower heads, mirrors, and dishware.

How does a Water Softener work?

A water softener is a water treatment device designed to turn hard water into soft water by removing healthy minerals such as calcium and magnesium in exchange for salts like sodium or potassium chloride. Some people confuse water softeners with water filters, but water softeners are not designed to remove dirt or chlorine. Water softeners simply convert dirty chlorinated hard water into dirty chlorinated salty water.

What is Hard Water?

Hard water contains high levels of healthy dissolved minerals. Most are not aware that hard water can be found in high quality bottled spring water, since the minerals contribute to the PH balance and give a superior taste to the water. Hard water does not only contain minerals that can be a nuisance in a home or business, it can also cause problems with water using appliances, such as dishwashers and washing machines.
