If salt-less water systems really worked don't you think Culligan would
have them too? Water hardness is nothing more than calcium & lime
dissolved in your water. Water hardness is a physical substance, just like
water impurities in your drinking water. There is no magic wand you can
wave and make them disappear. There are no magnets or electrical systems
to wish away, hope away or pray away water impurities. If you read the
fine print on these salt-free systems you will clearly see where it says *"Does
NOT remove water hardness". *The theory with these electric units is that
somehow the dissolved rock (water hardness) is modified so that it will not
stick or plug up your plumbing. Even if this was true this has nothing to
do with all the reason homeowners look for a Culligan water softener.
Softer hair, smoother skin, spot free dishes and greatly reduced dry skin
are the real reason most people look for a water softener. All of these
benefits cannot be attained by a magnet or electric water system. We do
admit that the gimmick of a salt-free systems sound great, but eventually
folks will realize that their water feels exactly the same as it did
before. If you truly want soft water free of hard water minerals the only
choice is a genuine Culligan water softener.
If you have any doubt we invite you to test the water yourself. Better yet
grab a water sample from your neighbor, then get a sample from one of these
salt-free water systems. We guarantee you that you will find no change
from the two water samples. For over 75 years Culligan has been sticking
with what really works, not gimmicks or hype. But if there is any doubt we
encourage you to do a simple water test and see for yourself.
