Salt-Based Water Softener Reviews

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.

We all know the effects hard water can have. It leaves residue everywhere that’s not easy to clean, your pipes and water based appliances in the home get clogged up and need replacing more often than they should, and for those of you that have really hard water, working up a nice froth with your shower gel can be a real chore.
For these reasons, I have decided to let you in on the Fleck 5600SXT 48,000 grain water softener

It came to me that not everyone likes to live in a house because they’re free spirited and roaming the many great Sates the US has to offer is a way of life. This is why I have decided to include the Watts PRO-1000, or as it’s sometimes referred to the M7002. This little beauty of a water softener has changed the way in which you use water when you’re either on a camping trip in an RV or if you prefer to live in a motor home.

To me, salt based water softeners appeared to be a challenge, which is why I’m so excited about this one. There is a lot of confusion out there concerning this type of water softener and how effective it is, but because salt based systems have been around for so long it is what many people still turn to when dealing with hard water problems.
