What is the Difference Between a Water Softener and Electronic Water Conditioner?

I’m Confused, What is the Difference Between a Water Softener and Electronic Water Conditioner?

There is a big difference between a water softener and an electronic water conditioner.  A water softener will replace calcium in the water with salt, while an electronic water conditioner, like ScaleBlaster, will not remove anything from the water.  Water softeners are expensive to maintain, have only a 5 to 10 year lifespan, and require continuous maintenance.  They take up a lot of floor space and require ongoing purchases of salt.  The hassle of lifting 40 pound or more bags of salt is not fun.   Additionally, water softeners are harmful to people on salt restricted diets and should not be used.  An electronic water descaler like ScaleBlaster is the perfect solution.  While acting as a limescale remover, the calcium remains in the water, which is good for you.  ScaleBlaster is a salt-free water conditioner – a healthy alternative to water softeners.

Water softeners also make the skin feel dry and the water feel slippery and makes soap suds difficult to remove.  It will also increase water and sewer bills greatly while discharging chlorides into the water stream.  ScaleBlaster, a lime scale remover, requires no salt and is safe for people on salt restricted diets.  It is non-intrusive to the water and does not require any additional water usage.  ScaleBlaster is a great alternative to water a softener and will make water feel “silkier” while allowing for soap suds to wash away easily.   ScaleBlaster is also an ideal solution for tankless water heater and will prevent the heat exchanger in the heater from fouling up with scale deposits.
