Salt-free conditioners are not to be confused with salt-free softeners. Softeners use a negatively charged resin bed to remove magnesium and calcium from your water. Conditioners on the other hand, do not remove the magnesium or calcium, but rather they transform it, and stop the minerals from clinging to surfaces and precipitating into the scales that build up over time. This process removes the necessity of flushing the minerals down a drain while keeping your water clean and smooth at the same time – saving both electricity, and water. You’ll even have brighter laundry and less soap usage!
The best way to tell whether or not you want a salt, or salt-free, system is to have a water analysis done. So, give us a call for more information, assistance, or our Southern Water Service

Salt Free Water For Commercial Use
Hard water contains a lot of minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Unfortunately, these elements can be hard on skin, machinery, drains, and more. To avoid these issues, you can turn to water softening, but most softeners rely on salt. Luckily, there are options — if you need commercial water softening, you may want to turn to a salt-free water softener.
Here’s what you need to know.
Benefits of Salt-Free Water Softeners
Here are some of the benefits of investing in a salt-free water softener:
- Perfect for brine-free areas — Traditional water softeners are not allowed in brine-restricted areas, and if your commercial facility is located in one of these areas, a salt-free water softener can help you improve the quality of your water, without using salt.
- Flexible options — You also have a lot of different options. You can choose a large water softener that softens all the water coming into your facility, but alternatively, you can opt for an under-the-sink filtration system that just works on the drinking and cooking water that comes out of your tap.
- Less waste — A salt-free water softener doesn’t waste water like a traditional water softener.
- More affordable — Often, salt-free water conditioners are more affordable than other types of solutions. If you run a commercial enterprise, you need to keep your costs as low as possible, and this type of softener helps you with that goal, without forcing you to sacrifice water quality.
- More effective than magnetic treatment — To avoid salt, some people turn to filters with magnets. Extensive research indicates that magnetic water conditioners do not work, and there is no beneficial effect to using these systems.
How Salt-Free Water Softeners Work
Typically, water softeners rely on ion exchange to soften the water. Ion-exchange resin beads with the opposite electrical charge as the elements you’re trying to remove from your water, sit in a water-tight tank. When the hard water passes through the tank, the ions attract the hard minerals, pulling them out of the water.
When this process involves salt, you have to refill the salt in the softener, but if you opt for a salt-free water softener, you never have to worry about replacing the salt. Instead, you simply trade in the tank as needed when the exchange ions are no longer able to soften the incoming water. When hardness levels appear at 25 gpg (grans per gallon) or higher pre-treatment or additional media may be required. Please consult a specialist for this condition.
Why You Need a Water Softener
Hard water often has a sub-par taste, meaning that it is not ideal for drinking or cooking. If you are in an area with hard water and your business produces foods or drinks, you need a water softener to protect the quality of your water as it’s directly tied to the quality of your products.
Additionally, hard water can be very damaging on equipment that uses water, and that includes everything from hot water heaters to coffee machines. Water softeners can help to prevent limescale, mineral deposit build-up, or other issues that affect the lifespan of your equipment, and that can save you money on repair and replacement costs.

Saltless Water Softener is a new technology which transforms the calcium (hardness) of the water into mechanically stable and heat resistant calcite crystals (nano meter size) which no longer cause lime deposits. The calcium is simply rinsed away.

Water Softener SaltWater Softener Salt
The salt used in the brine tank of a water softener does not directly soften the water, but is used to regenerate the resin beads in your water softener. These actually soften the water from your well by removing the hard water ions, calcium, magnesium and iron.

Industrial Water Softeners remove hardness ions from water through ion exchange, which exchanges hardness ions for more harmless ions, such as salt.Hard water is water that has calcium and/or magnesium salts dissolved in it. The degree of hardness is directly related to the concentration of these salts. Hard water consumes soap and adversely affects washing and cleaning operations in the home and throughout industry. Hard water salts form scale in pipe lines, boilers, heat ex changers, hot water heaters, water chillers & UV shells.
