A salt based softener will dose with salt in-order to physically remove the limescale from the water. The unit is fairly large and is normally situated in a kitchen cupboard, and the plumbing is very involved. Storage is always a problem, as you need to buy the salt in bulk to get the best value, and you have already lost the use of a kitchen cupboard. On the plus side all the limescale has been replaced by sodium, but do make sure that you get a twin cylinder model to get constant protection. However, whatever you do, don’t forget about it as it does need constant monitoring to make sure everything is ok. And of course you mustn’t drink the treated water.
The Aquabion on the other hand needs no monitoring, and once fitted can be forgotten about. Once it has been installed, you will have constant protection for seven years. Aquabion doses with zinc and changes the aggressive limescale into a neutral non-adhering lime. Don’t forget you can drink Aquabion water and still benefit from the minerals. It only gets better as the Aquabion takes up no or very little space so you can forget all about limescale and the solution.
