Alkaviva UltraHome Salt Free Water Softener
What is the “softener” agent/process used, since salt/chemicals aren’t used?
The principle behind the way our EnviroSoft Technology works is relatively simple: it changes scaling calcium into non-scaling calcium. Water becomes hard or “scaling” when the calcium and carbonic acid are out of balance. EnviroSoft media helps return hard water chemistry from this state of imbalance towards proper balance – just like in soft water. As nature intended.
In other words, minerals are neutralized so they don’t stick to surfaces, not removed from your water using harmful chemicals.
The EnviroSoft media is made up of inert NSF-certified polymer beads that work in a fluidized bed - meaning the beads move around and bump into each other. The surface of each inert bead looks like a mini-template of organized holes, technically referred to as “nucleation sites”. These sites act as a catalyst to change scaling calcium into nano-sized crystal structures that are able to absorb minerals readily, yet stable enough to not attach themselves to the surfaces of your plumbing or appliances. The calcium crystals eventually release from the templates into the water stream making EnviroSoft self-regenerating – meaning you never have to replace the media.
Nothing is added to the water. Back in the water stream, the calcium crystals become templates (or “seed” crystals) themselves, and can perform the same function just like the media. This is especially important with hot-water appliances like your coffee maker or hot water heater because heating water increases its scale potential. However, the seed crystals are able to absorb the calcium that would otherwise form scale.
So while EnviroSoft does not technically soften the water, it also doesn’t come with the ongoing hassle, expense or eco-issues that salt-softeners create. At the same time, EnviroSoft conditions your water to protect your plumbing and appliances. EnviroSoft also leaves in the healthy minerals (softeners do NOT). EnviroSoft is eco-friendly, needs no maintenance, never has to be replaced and is hassle-free and cost effective. Water as nature intended.
Since the healthy minerals like calcium are left in the water, will that allow any mineral buildup/scale in the homeowners pipes, sinks and tubs?
No, that will not. The process as described above, does in fact leave the natural minerals but also physically alters so that they cannot form scale. In fact the system helps remove existing scale throughout your water system.
Will the system work effectively on any level of hardness?
Our system is effective up to 450 ppm (26 grains) of hardness. If your hardness is higher than 450 ppm don’t fret! Contact us and we can customize the amount of media to meet your unique needs.
Will the system sufficiently address the needs for ANY size home… Regardless of square footage amounts?
Our systems are designed for average sized homes with 2.5 bathrooms or less but can be customized. If you have a larger home, well water, specific contaminant concerns, our WQA experts are happy to customize a personalized solution for you.
Does the Water Softener system have to be backwashed?
No, our salt free system does not backwash at all. Ever. Easier to install. Easier on the environment and your pocket book!
What are your Salt-Free system’s advantages over salt-based water softeners?
Many! First, is you spend ZERO time and ZERO money on ongoing maintenance. No monthly salt to add. No media replacements. Typical annual maintenance costs for a salt-based softener installed in a two to three bath household of four adults is $716 between monthly salt replacement and annual media replacement. Spread over 10 years that is well over $7,000. If you run RO to remove the salt at the tap, then that cost increases. Not to mention the hassle you incur. During the same period, you have no cost and no hassle with the UltraHome Salt-free System. That’s huge!
The UltraHome Salt-free System is more environmentally friendly. You use no power and you will not waste a drop of water by back flushing.
