When choosing a water softener, you will find two main options the most common type of water softener is the traditional model which uses a salt solution to soften the water. The second option of water softeners, is an environmentally friendly option that uses citric acid, and has a membrane that hard water will filter through, leaving you with clean water. If you have especially hard water, you will want to go with a unit like the Northstar Water Softener, which can handle several gallons per minute of water. And while salt water softeners can be installed in a few hours, you will want to make sure that you have enough space in your basement or utility closet where your main water pipe comes into your home or condo. For applications where you have minimal space or applications where you only want to soften the water to your dishwasher or kitchen faucet, then a solution like the NuvoH20 saltless water softener is an ideal solution. With the NuvoH20 water softener system, all that you need to do is hook up the water line so that it filters though the NuvoH20 unit.
