Protect your home appliances and plumbing by reducing the adverse effects of corrosion and scale (calcium, barium and magnesium buildup). Conditioned water extends the life of your plumbing and appliances and can even help reduce existing buildup, prolonging the life of your home assets. The Aquasana SimplySoft Salt-Free Water Softener employs NSF certified SLOW PHOS slowly-soluble polyphosphate beads engineered to prevent scale formation and corrosion by altering the charge of hard mineral ions including calcium, magnesium, and barium. This process allows beneficial minerals to remain in your water and eliminates the negative impact of salt waste on the environment.

  • NSF certified media reduces effects of Ca, Mg, and Ba
  • No salt added into your water or the environment
  • Excellent salt-free conditioning extends the life of your pipes and appliances by greatly reducing the adverse effects of scale and protecting plumbing from pipe corrosion
  • Gently and naturally conditions water using innovative salt-free water softening SLOW PHOS technology designed to prevent scale formation and protect from corrosion

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No Regrets! This Aquasana..50,000 Grain 20 in. SimplySoft Salt-Free Water Softener made a big improvement in the quality and taste of our well water. We had a lot of calcium buildup around our faucets and in our toilets and this product has solved this problem. I did have to have it professionally installed because I did not feel confident in installing the needed connections. I have yet to have to replace the filter, so I don't know exactly how often I will need to replace it or how expensive it might be. So far, I am very pleased with this product. January 22, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not as advertized Product is advertized as a water softener. Doesn't do it!!! Not at all. Does not remove anything from the water. Water is just as hard as it was before I installed the produce. Same brown stuff I was getting without it is the same brown stuff I'm getting with it. This unit will cause white clothes to be ruined and you will have to use much more soap than with a water softener that uses salt. Water softener that uses salt gets rid of it and softens the water. Was hoping to get away from the salt, but I will have to return to it. March 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent... but not for everyone! :( The Aquasana water softener was a quick install, looked great and had good water pressure. Unfortunately, our (well) water is so hard that the chelation style softener simply doesn't work. The calcium remains in suspension and so it does not have as much of an effect on washing clothes, etc. If you have slightly hard water this may be a great solution for you, but if you are getting your water straight out of the limestone you probably need to stick with a more traditional style softener.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Softner I have extremely hard water where I live. I opted to get this unit because I didn't want to lug salt downstairs regularly. This system has dramatically softened my water. The only downside is filter replacements are expensive (though I knew this going in). And replacing the filter basically gets water everywhere! Still would choose this over traditional softners. December 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by simply soft salt free softener so far it is doing a great job removing calcium from our water. I installed this as a back up to a H2O Nuvo filter because it was not removing the calcium. Only issue I have is the replacement filter is very expensive around $100 MDN June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No more frizzy hair! I was skeptical at first thinking that this would not work as described and without salt. But, I was wrong! My water is finally soft and my hair no longer looks like I stuck my finger in a light socket. Great product. August 26, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Took a huge hit in water pressure after installation I have no idea why, but I took a huge hit in water pressure after installing this unit. I have attempted to contact the company through their website link, but have yet to speak to someone about the issue. Bummer, it is exactly what I wanted. April 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by More Bubbles Water is softer but not like a regular softener. Works perfect for me as I am single. I don't recommend for a large family. October 1, 2014
