Answer: 
Water spots are the residual of the solubles that are suspended in the water. Nearly all source water has some minerals and natural contaminants. City water may have traces of other things, fluoride and chlorine (bleach).
This filter alone will not eliminate water spotting. When placed in front of a three step filter (like Aquasana's whole house unit), the water you get will be darn near pure. That Read More
Water spots are the residual of the solubles that are suspended in the water. Nearly all source water has some minerals and natural contaminants. City water may have traces of other things, fluoride and chlorine (bleach).
This filter alone will not eliminate water spotting. When placed in front of a three step filter (like Aquasana's whole house unit), the water you get will be darn near pure. That water is less likely to spot.
As soon as you pour that clean water into a glass, residuals from the dishwasher (like soap and other chemicals) will dissolve in the into the water. Spill it on the counter and yes spots will be there, albeit less noticeable than unfiltered.
I sense you have something in your water that helps makes the spots. If you can identify what solubles you are dealing with, matching a solution becomes a lot easier. Your city water department probably tests the water and knows what is in it. If you are in Flint, you might want an independent test; most states do this for a modest fee--less than a service call.
There is not one size fits all with water problems. Two homes with same city water in different parts of town can have different issues--one gets water through leaded pipe, one does not, for example.
This filter softens; it does NOT remove solubles from your water. Water from this filter will not feel like water from a salt system, but it will be softened. A salt system will not prevent spots either. Dealing with what causes the residual will make spotting unproblematic. For clean water, Aquasana makes a nice system. Disclaimer: I do not work for Aquasana nor receive any benefit from them. I have their system so I know it. And I paid for it. Read Less

Answer: 
tom,
This system may assist in reducing the water spots but it is not guaranteed to clear it up completely. This system is not a salt system, therefore the minerals are kept in the water.
Thank you,

Answer: 
Filters are not as much time sensitive as they are flow sensitive. Look at your water bill (it has numbers about usage) when you purchase. Read details about the unit from the manufacturer; it will have recommended gallon use detail. Watch your water usage by the future water bills and gauge replacement according to real usage. Guessing with water quality is too much like government failure. Think Read More
Filters are not as much time sensitive as they are flow sensitive. Look at your water bill (it has numbers about usage) when you purchase. Read details about the unit from the manufacturer; it will have recommended gallon use detail. Watch your water usage by the future water bills and gauge replacement according to real usage. Guessing with water quality is too much like government failure. Think Flint.
Some filters (not this one) are fibrous and paper-like; these will be time sensitive. So even if no water is used if they are wet they have to be replaced regularly.
The quality of water at your source makes a difference. The guy from Bemidji had no idea what he needed. A softener is not an iron remover. The water in that part of Minnesota is miserable; the high iron will wreck water systems and left untreated will kill you with iron poisoning. ©2016 Read Less

Answer: 
The solution offered by this product depends on water flowing through the filter, not on the unit behind it heating the water. A tank water heater will in my personal estimation work slightly better because the tank itself will allow a mix of filtered (softened) water flatting highs and lows in filter output (even though slight, water pressure makes a difference).

The solution offered by this product depends on water flowing through the filter, not on the unit behind it heating the water. A tank water heater will in my personal estimation work slightly better because the tank itself will allow a mix of filtered (softened) water flatting highs and lows in filter output (even though slight, water pressure makes a difference).
A tankless system is all demand or no demand with no place for water mix after the filter. So if it works for a tankless heater, it should work for a traditional tank water heater.
My home system is a hybrid. A tank warms the water and a point of use heater bring the temp to hot. No problems. However, our city water is not at a high end of any particular soluble. If you have outlying and challenging problems, you need to discuss options with a local profession who knows your particular water. Different minerals pose different problems which means different solutions are needed to be effective. There is no one-for-all fix with water.
Aquasana's website lists no restrictions for this filter with respect to heater types. ©2016 Read Less

Customer Reviews

SimplySoft 2-Year 20 in. Salt-Free Water Softener is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from People not willing to actually read product descriptions, shouldn't be allowed to leave reviews. The description for this product clearly states that it DOES NOT take the hardness out of the water, it simply changes the composition of the calcium to where it passes through the piping and fixtures, rather than sticking and corroding elements and such. We wanted something to do just this, as we have very hard well water and wanted a tankless water heater. It works VERY well for this purpose..the VERY SAME purpose and function that is CLEARLY STATED in the description. I always check reviews before buying products..unfortunately you have to ignore over half of the ratings because of very ignorant consumers who just assume that a product will fulfill all of their wishes. Read the descriptions before you buy something, and certainly don't downgrade a product because it doesn't do what you want it to do, yet still does EXACTLY what it claims to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Using together with a Whirlpool whole house filter that is self-cleaning, etc. The two together provide me with crystal clear water - and I've stopped buying bottled water. My water now is clear, with no odor and no taste - exactly as pure water should be. Prior to installing, my city water was inconsistent - always a little off color (tending yellow hued), sometimes with a strong chlorine odor, always with some cloudiness (and sometimes with significant cloudiness), always with an aftertaste, and always requiring attentive cleaning to prevent calcium/lime deposits at faucets. It was never clear, odorless and colorless like it is now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware!!!! I wanted a source of softened water to feed my 50 gal bait keeper and be able to wash my vehicles. This unit is a complete flop. I even added a full house water filter in front of the unit. The water was clear when the tank was filled and after sitting for a half hour the water turns a rust color. I tried running the water for a good half hour to see if the softener had to be flushed No success. The cost of the unit is money wasted and i need to check and see if a gallon of minnows are alive.
