Water softener ban update

Water softener ban update

Earlier in the year, I wrote about the ban (which has now taken place), of salt-based water softeners in the USA. The problem is simply this what do you do with all the salt being flushed down the drain? Most people don’t realize that a salt based softener will use in excess of 6,000 litres of water year, simply because this is normally done at night. This can cause levels of salt in rivers to get too high.

So what could be done?

They could hit all residents with a four fold tax hike to build a $5,000,0000 facility to remove the salt, or simply ban the wasteful salt-based water softeners. Surprisingly some residents didn’t mind“…when a local water agency offered Dennis Levens a rebate to get rid of his salt-based water softener, Levens of Rancho Cucamonga didn’t think twice. “It was seven years old, and I was about to replace it anyway and get something more efficient,””

So is this ban a trend?

I think it will defiantly catch on in all areas where salt in the water systems causes problems. There just simply isn’t an alternative.

“(They) pose a major threat to our water supplies because of the huge amounts of salt they discharge into the sewage treatment system,” IEUA’s board member John Anderson said… “

 

 

 

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

Your AQUABION – system has been operating successfully in our company for
some time in a humidifier of an air – conditioning system.

A truly remarkable piece of kit. Like everyone I was a bit sceptical at first but this unit has been fit and forget and so easy to install. We are a hard water area and limescale was an unsightly problem but is now a thing of the past. Unit starting its 5th year in use and no deterioration in performance noticed yet.

We have very hard water and lime scale is a problem for all appliances and particularly the shower. Had a refit recently and incorporated an Aquabion Mini …. only a month in but looks good. Will be adding one to washing machine soon … as we have been through 3 machines in 10 years
