Water Softeners – Water Softener Reviews
Water Softeners Overview
Water Softeners are used to treat hard water. They work by replacing the calcium and magnesium in the water with sodium. They may also remove a small amount of iron or manganese, but for high levels, it is not recommended.
Water Softeners will generally require a professional installation, and they are relatively expensive to both purchase and maintain.
For hard water treatment you may wish to use a magnetic water conditioner as they are signficantly less expensive alternative to water softeners. Although some people claim they don’t work, there is a great deal of anecdotal evidence, and some scientific research, to suggest they are equally as effective as water softeners in treating hard water.
