Electric current system v salt water softener?

Do the systems that send a low electrical charge through the main feed into the house work as well as a normal system with the big tank and salt etc? If they work I would assume this is the way to go, saves on salt and space in the garage. I am in Florida and I am moving into a new house pre plumbed for a softener. Thanks in advance for any help/info sent my way.

I am looking at this http://www.equinox-products.com/HardnessMaster.htm

Ive pulled out alot of those elec. softeners and i can tell you that in my experience they dont work. according to the national water quality assoc. a ion exchange water softener (one that uses salt) is the only softener that actually removes hardness and iron. Dont waste your money and make sure that if you buy a softener it is one that parts are readily available for. aka not a sears or kenmore. stay with a fleck valve or an autotrol valve or if you can find it a clack valve.
