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.

  • 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

Customer Questions & Answers

Zero hardness removal????

I thought it was a water softener, is this true?
Asked by: Marco
With research I've found this softener does not remove minerals but rather neutralizes them, therefore there is zero removal, but the effect is soft water from standpoint of scale deposits.

50,000 Grain 20 in. SimplySoft Salt-Free Water Softener is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Result not up to par I installed this to soften the water for a commercial dishwasher that cleans glassware. It may have reduced hardness somewhat but certainly not enough to use for this application. The glassware emerges from the dishwasher with a white hard-water stain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Softener not up to the rating This softener did not reduce the hardness of my water at all. I tried it as a softener for my RV and mounted it for a permanent solution to hard water in RV parks. I kept trying the water for softness with test strips but the only thing I did was to waste test strips. It did not meet the expectations I had for it after reading the brochure. I believe it was a total waste of money.
