Small water softener vs Aquabion water conditioner
Why chose an Aquabion WATER CONDITIONER when YOU can have a small water softener?
Water softeners are great but they do have lots of drawbacks which you must think about before committing valuable cupboard space, time and money needed to maintain them.
You can get a small softener if it is suitable for your home however, can you plumb around the drawbacks? You don’t need to do this with a water conditioner, which is installed on the incoming main pipework and does not require any additional space. Water softeners also require regular maintenance and ongoing costs, e.g purchasing salt and cleaning of the unit. It is also recommended by the NHS, WRAS and DWI that you should not drink softened water and should have a separate untreated water tap for drinking. AQUABION treated water is safe to drink, saving you having to install a separate drinking water feed.
Usually the smaller the softener, the fewer people it can cater for. For example, the smallest softener available can only cater to the needs of 1 person per household, so would not be an option if you have a big family, and you would still need to use up a cupboard to store it. The bigger the family, the bigger the water softener, and the more valuable cupboard space being taken up! This of course is the same for a water conditioner but as they are often installed in-line the extra space is minimal. Lots of households who have loads of space for a water softener still choose water conditioners because of the ease of use. It is the same with household name customers who have the space for water softeners but choose Aquabion because there is no maintenance, among many other benefits.
