Where to Get an Effective Salt-Free Water Softener for Your Home in Austin, TX

Salt-Free Water Softener Austin TX

Are you researching water softeners online before you buy one for your Austin-area home? If so, you’re undoubtedly running across all kinds of information—some of it contradictory—about water softeners. You may have read warnings about potential health risks that are created by water softeners that use sodium in the water conditioning process, and perhaps that has piqued your interest in choosing a salt-free water softener for your home.

Fortunately, if you’re convinced that a salt-free water softener is the best option for you, Sweetwater Home Services can provide one of the best sodium-free water softening systems on the market. Manufactured by a recognized leader in the residential water treatment industry, the water softeners we provide to homeowners throughout Central Texas have been independently tested and certified as effective. Like our sodium-based water conditioners, our salt-free options are built to last and backed by the manufacturer’s exceptional Limited Lifetime Warranty. However, the minerals used in our no-salt options tend to be pricier than sodium. Would you like to learn more before you make an investment? Read on for some valuable information.

How Does a Water Softener Work?

The most effective water softeners use a method called “ion exchange.” This process removes the concentrated dissolved minerals—specifically, calcium and magnesium—that cause hard water by exchanging them for another mineral that won’t cause water woes in your home. The most common mineral substitute is sodium chloride, a naturally occurring substance. However, potassium chloride is another naturally occurring mineral that makes a great substitute for salt in the ion exchange process. It isn’t as plentiful as sodium, so a salt-free water softener will likely cost more in terms of the minerals you purchase to replenish your ion exchange system.

Why Choose a Salt-Free Water Softener?

Some health experts warn that most Americans consume more sodium than is healthy without adding salt to their tap water for conditioning purposes. However, the reality is that salt-based water softeners add only a minuscule amount of sodium to drinking water. Even so, when you partner with Sweetwater Home Services, we’ll be happy to discuss your needs and help you choose the best water softener to meet them.
