Product Overview

Protect your home appliances and plumbing from the adverse effects of iron and scale buildup and extend the life of your washing machine, water heater, dishwasher and other appliances. Aquasana SimplySoft is better than just a softener. Unlike salt-based softeners, SimplySoft won't demineralize your water by chemically removing minerals nor will it put excess salt or chemical waste into our environment. SimplySoft uses advanced NSF Certified NAC salt-free softening technology to naturally and safely reduce scale buildup in hard water without the use of salt or chemicals.

  • Extends life of tankless water heaters, pipes and appliances by reducing harmful effects of scale buildup
  • Does not require electricity, drainage for wastewater, or complicated salt replacement
  • Low maintenance - lasts 2 years and doesn't require heavy bags of salt for replacement
  • Will not chemically remove healthy minerals from water

Customer Questions & Answers

We are using this as a whole-house softener. How long should we expect the cartridge to last, with a 2-adult household? I don't see a rating for the number of gallons of water it is expected to treat. We are starting to see more spots and residue on our glasses and silverware. BTW: We use it in conjunction with a whole-house filter and we are very pleased.
Asked by: VegasVic
The manufacturer states a new filter should last 6 months or 50,000 gallons. The filter that came with my Aquasana was only a partial so if that's the one you're using it will not last as long. It appears to be about a 1/3 full of media compared to the new filter I purchased at the same time I installed the Aquasana. Every household will use water at different rates. The best way to know when your filter needs changed is to watch your usage and add it up from your monthly water bill if you're on city water.

will this replace my old water softener

will this replace my old water softener
Asked by: david2
Yes. It is designed to prevent hard minerals such as limescale from attaching to your pipes, appliances, shower walls, etc. The difference is that your water won't feel nearly as slippery as a salt based softener because the minerals are still in your water. They are just bound with phosphorous so they don't cling to things and build-up. You will notice improvements in limescale buildup. You will likely notice a decrease in water pressure that you wouldn't get with a traditional salt softener.

Does this include a cartridge, or do I need to order the 1st cartridge with it also?

Does this include a cartridge, or do I need to order the 1st cartridge with it also?
Asked by: Erica
Mine came with a partially filled media cartridge. It looks like it would last about a third the time of a full cartridge since it appears to be only filled with media about 1/3 full. I went ahead and bought a full cartridge and will use the partial when the filter runs out until I order and receive and new one.

What is the red button on top of the filter?

Asked by: Roy
It's an air purge. You must push it and hold until water comes out from around the red button at first install and every time you open the housing to change the filter. You will also want to purge it if the city works on the water lines and you notice air coming out of your faucet.

SimplySoft 2-Year 20 in. Salt-Free Water Softener is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 15.

Dishes are coming out of the dishwasher cleaner and without hard water spots. Not only is the lime scale build-up in the appliances (most notably the dishwasher) halted but it appears to be removing some of the build-up from before the Aquasana was installed. I can feel a slight difference in the feel of the water in the shower. The only drawbacks so far is that we did lose some water pressure but it's only noticeable in our house at the kitchen sink. The pressure is still more than adequate. I don't notice any pressure loss from the shower. The only other drawback that I have noticed is that changing the media filter is a bit of a pain because you can't drain the water in the Aquasana reservoir prior to unscrewing it so it can be a bit messy. Make sure you have a bucket underneath. Not too big a deal. It would also be nice if there was a way to tell when the filter needs changed. It's supposed to be good for 60,000 gallons if I remember right so I'll just have to watch the water bills on usage. We'll see how that goes. Overall, so far, I'm very happy. Installation for me was a bit complicated because I had to go from copper to PVC on one side and pex to PVC on the other. I am a pretty experienced do-it-yourselfer so, with a little ingenuity I was able to get it done without too much trouble. Depending on your particular installation and experience level with plumbing or lack thereof, you may want a professional to install. I've seen where others have reported issues with the connectors being cheap and leaking but I'm not having that issue at all. Could be user error.

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.
