Disadvantages of Water Softeners - Disadvantages of Water Softeners

When searching for a solution for hard water problems, water softeners are what most frequently come to mind. However, water softeners are not always the best option, for numerous reasons. We are continuing our series discussing the downside of water softeners. Our previous articles covered the fact that purchasing a water softener is expensive, requires professional installation, takes up floor space, and increases water bills. Today, we will look at more of the disadvantages of choosing a water softener over an electronic descaling system.

Not Eco-Friendly

Water softeners are not environmentally friendly, period.  In addition to utilizing extra water as we discussed in our previous article, they also require salt and discharge chlorides into the waste stream. On the contrary, an electronic descaling system does not require any chemicals and does not discharge anything into the water stream, making it an ecofriendly water softener alternative.

Requires Ongoing Maintenance

A water softener requires a lot of ongoing maintenance. In addition to purchasing salt and resin on a regular basis, owners of water softeners must inspect the system, clean and adjust valves, and sanitize the resin and water tanks.  The beauty of the ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system is that it’s an ecofriendly water softener alternative that requires no ongoing maintenance.
