The Water Shed Brings You the Only True “No Salt” Water Softener

A salt-free water softening system may be appropriate for well owners who have a very high level of hardness in their water, especially if the level is over 50. This is found in certain rural areas in Nova Scotia, where hardness levels even reach 100. When your water is this hard, it means you would need to use a large amount of salt in a typical salt-based water softener—as much as one bag per week. This amount of salt is apt to have a taste and leave a residue on dishes. It will increase your costs and you’ll be flushing the excess salt into either your dry well or the septic field.

The Luxury of Ultra Pure Water Throughout Your Home

Why settle for just filtered or softened water in your home when you can have pure water at every usage point. These systems provide the best water available that will be crystal clear and free from odors and tastes. Also they provide all the benefits of softened water without the need for cumbersome salt bags. These systems are truly the "No Salt Softeners".

Why You Need or Want it

These systems are designed for the discerning customer that wants sparkling clear water throughout their home. These systems will remove almost all contaminants that make your water aesthetically displeasing. They are even employed in situations were other treatment methods are unsuccessful at remedying the problems.

How It Works

Nano-Filtration and Reverse Osmosis provide filtration at the molecular level Nano-Filtration and Reverse Osmosis provide filtration at the molecular level which allows them to filter out hardness, iron, tannins and other contaminants that conventional filtration cannot remove. This technology provides a very pure product without the need for more cumbersome and invasive methods such as chlorination, ion exchange and sedimentation. Water is squeezed through a membrane that separates the water from the unwanted materials that are carried by the water. We choose the correct membrane to achieve the results you desire.

How do they make the water pure?

Systems can be tailored to leave the water with some remaining alkalinity to balance the pH. You don't have to live with corrosive water that is produced by competitive systems.
Typical Results• Soft water without adding sodium•• No-Salt or need to carry those heavy bags or worrying about the environment.• No color or cloudiness in your water and odors are gone.• Trace contaminants reduced at every tap.• No spotting of dishes and no need for wiping.• Excellent secondary barrier against micro-organisms.

Nano-Filtration Pre-Treatment• Quite often not required.• Municipal water requires activated carbon for de-chlorination.• Surface or lake waters require sediment filtration.• Water containing high hardness may require chemical scale control.

We provide water testing – as one of our longstanding services.
