Alternative to a Water Softener? Go Salt Free with Easy Water



Some Form of Water Treatment is Necessary

Many places across the country have hard water problems or need some form of water treatment. In fact hard water is so widespread it sustains an industry all by itself. Not only does Culligan, Kinetico and a slew of other companies make their money selling and or installing softening equipment but there thousands of companies across the U.S. that do nothing but sell and install different types of water treatment systems. Not to mention the plumbing contractors that install water softeners when customers needs them.

So now we’ve established that water treatment is a necessity in many places around the country due to hard water we should probably talk about what kind of treatments can be done to lessen the adverse effects. The following are the most common issues related to hard water in a home:

The Ionic Exchange process goes like this :

Incoming water enters the softener and passes over plastic beads or Zeolite that carry a small electric charge and are covered with sodium ions. As the hard water runs over the resin bed the hardness minerals are attracted to the bead and displace the sodium ions. As the process continues and the sodium is replaced, the resin beads contain nothing but calcium and magnesium. At this point the softener stops softening and the regeneration process begins. The regeneration process begins by soaking the beads in salt, basically the same process in reverse. The calcium and magnesium are replaced with sodium and the salt water and hard minerals are flushed down the drain. Water softeners and ionic exchange are pretty simple in concept and the equipment works well for the most part, however it isn?t without it?s drawbacks.

Here some of the common drawbacks or complaints people have with water softening:

So is there another way to treat water that will take care of some of the hard water water problems but eliminate some of the drawbacks? The answer is a resounding yes. A company called Freije has been making water treatment solutions for the commercial and industrial market since the late 80s. Freije has released a product called Easy Water based on the same technology that drives their commercial products.

Let me say one thing right now to dispel any confusion about this product. This product does not soften water if you want soft water this is not the product for you. Some people have incorrectly labelled this product as a saltless water softener. This is not true it is a saltless water treatment system. So what does Easy Water actually do? It sends electronic frequencies through your potable water pipe walls to change the shape and charge of the heavy minerals present in your hard water. These minerals are now able to flow/float with the water and will not stick together. The results of this innovative process are as follows:

Easy Water is particularly effective in removing hard scale from water heaters, both tank type and tankless. In fact an experiment was done on an 80-gallon domestic water heater servicing an apartment complex. The water in the area was 24 grains hard and the heater had 5? of hard scale built up on the bottom of the tank and flues. After 15 months both the bottom of the tank and the flue were entirely free of scale.
