Saltless Water Systems provide an ideal alternative for those who prefer to avoid using salt or chemicals to resolve their water problems. Our proven Scale Reduction System (or SRS) doesn't run up energy bills and prematurely ruining appliances. Our whole house systems handle iron, hardness, and odor-causing impurities to viruses, bacteria, and cysts.
Salt free water conditioners have multiple benefits.
From helping reduce limescale build up, to keeping the minerals in your water like magnesium and calcium, a good salt free water conditioner can actually even help prolong the life of your appliances that use water, and even helps prolong the life of your clothes and plumbing in the house. Studies show that water heaters that have hard water in them have a tendency to lose half of the efficiency of the heater through it's life span. While water heaters with salt free water conditioners on them are able to retain the original efficiency rating. Even shower heads using hard water had lost 75% of the flow rate with-in 18 months. However, those with salt free water conditioners kept the original flow of water.
Another bonus to the salt free water conditioners is they do not waste water like some conditioners do. They cost less to operate and require less maintenance. Salt free water conditioners are versatile, being used from commercial use to residential. Many restaurants have even adapted to using the technology and are cost effective green-certified water conditioners.
When it comes to the water softening ability for salt free systems they achieve a 96% rating for the international scale prevention.
How does the CWG Filtersorb SP process work?
The Filtersorb SP3 anti-scale media is specially designed and manufactured to prevent harmful scale build up. Our anti-scale media is unique because the surface of the media is specially manufactured to be hard and similar to a ball bearing which protects the media from shearing off and results in a better operational product with a much longer life expectancy. As the inlet water flows into the water conditioner tank, the up flow pulls the water which then passes through the Filter SP3 media. When contact between the media and water has been made, the Filtersorb SP3 acts as catalyst and converts the hard minerals into in active nano crystal particles. These nano crystallized particles break off and flow freely through the system without attaching on to pipes and other hardware components. A secondary benefit is that Filtersorb SP3 media process has a descaling effect on the existing scale already present in pipes, hardware, and equipment. A third benefit is that the Filtersorb SP3 Media also prevents corrosion by adding a 30 micron protective layer to the surface of the pipes and hardware. The overall process of Filtersorb SP3 is virtually maintenance free and does not require back-washing, salt, or electricity.
What is the main difference between water-softening unit and Filtersorb SP3?
The “classical” water-softening unit operates on the basis of ion exchange; exchanging calcium and magnesium ions in water with an equivalent amount of sodium (salt). When a water softener is used, the result is not only soft water, but also increased sodium content in the water supply. This added sodium content has raised health concern by many government officials. Additionally, these softening units require water for back-washing and common Brine water “salt water” for regeneration. For example, in order to regenerate 100 liters of softening resin, up to 25 kg of salt per regeneration cycle is required. This means an added costly expense of salt is incurred for each and every regeneration cycle. The Filtersorb SP3 water media acts as a catalyst by accelerating the transformation of the calcium and magnesium minerals into harmless “Nano” particles. When the inlet water goes into the water conditioner tank, the up flow pulls the water through the fluidized Filtersorb SP3 media which then acts as a catalyst and pulls the hardness minerals of calcium and magnesium out of the solution and then transforms.
