Salt-Based Water Softeners

I have done a lot of research on all types of water softeners, and you will find a great cross section as you browse my website. However, this page is dedicated to water softeners that use salt. The difference between salt based water softeners and salt free softeners is this type will completely remove and replace calcium and magnesium (the water hardening compounds) with sodium or potassium, depending on the kind of salt you use.

Salt based water softeners may be at the more expensive end of the market, but if you want to make sure your water is totally free of hard water compounds, this is the answer you’ve probably been looking for.
