Disadvantages of Water Softeners

Is There a Good Reason Not to Invest in a Water Softener?

The major disadvantage to softening water is the potential health risks for people that might be on low sodium diets. The exchange of hardness minerals for sodium adds 7.5 milligrams per quart for each gpg of hardness removed. In addition, calcium and magnesium are eliminated from the homeowner’s diet.

A half-gallon of softened, extremely hard water will contain about 480 mg more sodium than unsoftened water from the same source.

Other disadvantages of installing a water softener – There is some home care required. You will need to replace salt in order to keep your unit in good working order. You will also need a cupboard to store the softener.

We don’t always think about anything other than decreasing limescale build up when we consider installing a water softener. This is where a water conditioner comes into play. Conditioners don’t strip out all of the minerals that are actually good for us and don’t increase sodium levels. The AQUABION is installed on the incoming mains, so doesn’t require any additional cupboard space.

Problems with Domestic Water Softeners

Plumbers often report that domestic salt based softeners aren’t being looked after by their owners and when they are called in to repair these systems, customers have not been replacing the salt. For some people, the regular cost and maintenance required isn’t right for their personal circumstances, meaning that a softener is the wrong limescale solution for them. That doesn’t mean that there is no other option of course. A water conditioner gives all of the amazing benefits that a softener does, but it doesn’t require as much maintenance as far as the consumer is concerned.

Water Conditioners

AQUABION water conditioners are proven to be effective in preventing limescale build up and whilst there may be a little residue to easily wipe away, this is far more cost effective for domestic consumers in the long run. An AQUABION  unit does not rely on salt so there’s no need to worry about adding more and on top of that there is no compromise to the water quality. Water treated with a conditioner remains safe to drink and safe for the skin. AQUABION units also require zero maintenance or additional costs for 7 years.

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

Since we have had this product fitted our water has been great for our skin, great for our dishwasher and washing machines as we notice our clothes feel fresher.  I would recommend this product to my friends and further suggest that this product will save you money in the long term as it will reduce issues with pipe clogging up. All new homes being built in a hard water area should have this product fitted as a mandatory instruction for all builders
