Existing Lime-Scale Problems – Not Anymore!
If you don’t already know, lime-scale is due to the build-up of two minerals: Calcium and Magnesium. When these substances get together, they can cause all sorts of untold damage to the appliances in your home, and it doesn’t bear thinking about what goes on in your pipes or water heater.
I have decided to add the following review because it’s one of the only products I’ve come across that will not only soften your water, but will also help to reduce the amount of lime-scale build-up you already have.
You may not believe it, but Nuovo has developed a water softener called the nuvoH2O home complete salt free water softening system that doesn’t need salt (obviously), doesn’t use magnets or electricity, and best of all doesn’t waste water. How they have managed this, I couldn’t begin to tell you but this product deserves a place on my website simply because the company has thought about the environment as well as eliminating hard water issues in the home.
A Bit of Information on How It Works
I did say I couldn’t begin to tell you how Nuovo has managed to develop this marvellous water softener, and that’s true, but I can give you an idea of how it works. When you’re doing away with hard water, the principal is to deal with the two minerals I have mentioned and to do this effectively you need to be able to the lower the level of pH in your water.
This manufacturer has used patented technology which involves a process known as chelation (that’s where my technical experience ends I’m afraid). However what happens is the ions causing hard water are attracted to the chelating agent and it keeps the minerals soluble, thus eliminating their ability to form that crusty substance we all know (and hate) – lime-scale.
More Important Information
What’s even more astounding about this softener is its size. It’s a mere 24 inches long and 5 inches wide which makes it perfect for smaller homes such as apartments and condos. The parts used are both NSF and FDA approved which gives you peace of mind that your water is healthy, soft and safe to drink.
What you must be aware of however, is this softener is designed to remove existing lime-scale and keep it at bay in homes that are between 1,100 and 2,000 square feet in size. Any larger than that, and you probably won’t get the results you’re looking for.
When it comes to replacement filters, these should be changed every six months or after 45,000 gallons of water has been passed through it, and you can save some money on the cost if you opt for automatic billing as well as a reminder that it’s time you bought a new one.
The only slight downside to this water softener is the price, it’s one of the most expensive on the market right now. The technology Nuovo use is ground breaking though, and it has taken no less than 30 years to bring the finished product to the market. They are so confident this softener will change the way you feel about the water in your home, they offer a risk free 90 day money back guarantee and lifetime warranty.
In my opinion, this water softener is one of the best out there.
