Water Softener


Does any one have experience with salt-free water softeners (conditioner)? For example those advertised as Easy Water and Free Drinking Water.

Water Softener


They are not water softeners. They do not remove anything from the water.

They are anti scale - descale devices and are supposed to make water act as if it is softened water. I have seen a couple 'work', they caused a white film like baby powder all over everything that the water was allowed to dry on.

Most do nothing but lighten your wallet.
