Pure Performance

Innovative Technology

SCM salt-free softening technology naturally and safely reduces scale buildup on internal pipes and plumbing without the use of harsh salt or chemicals. Learn more about SCM technology » Compare the benefits of SimplySoft vs. Traditional Softeners »

Scale and corrosion without SCM protection can build up in your plumbing and appliances.

Innovative Salt-Free Softening Technology

Scale Control Media uses water flow to naturally alter the structure of hard mineral ions into a crystal structure that prevents the minerals from binding and forming scale buildup. SCM salt-free softening is proven to reduce scale on internal pipes and plumbing. Unlike salt based softeners, Aquasana SimplySoft will not demineralize your water, harm your pipes with harsh salt, or put excessive amounts of sodium waste into our communal water supply.

Rhino Softening Technology

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works We have had this installed for 2 weeks now. It does not soften the water the same way a salt-based system does. However, my wife has noticed that her hair feels better after washing. However, the main reason we purchased this was the de-scaling feature. We discovered that it worked yesterday when we made jam. Previously, when boiling water to sterilize the jars the water became cloudy, the jars had film on them and the pot had a white ring around the edge. Yesterday, that was all gone. We were both just amazed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally no more hardwater Well, this is my very first hard water experience and I refused to go with a salt solution for solving this problem ...... it was relatively easy to install. Our Aqusana Simply-Soft Salt-Free Whole House Water Softener has given us instant satisfaction and "normal/soft water".....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only the Softener I really have not had the system long enough to give a solid review. I have noticed a bit of black staining in my toilets, but have not cleaned them yet to know if it comes off easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised. Easy install. Used as a water softener

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes Aquasana filters are a great product and simple to install and maintain. I really like have a salt free water softener because we have an on site septic system as salt is bad for septic systems it causes hard pan in the soil. I also like how long the main filters last and the filter cartridges are easy to replace

Aquasana FAQs

  1. How will the water feel on my skin? Is there a slimy feeling?

    Because SimplySoft does not replace hard minerals with salt, your water will not feel slimy or slippery as it would with salt-based softeners.

  2. What grains of hardness or grains per gallon (GPG) can SimplySoft handle?

    SimplySoft is designed to handle hardness levels below 25 GPG and works best with hardness levels at 15 GPG or below.

  3. Will I use less soap and detergent with SimplySoft?

    Yes. Aquasana SimplySoft allows you to reduce your soap and detergent usage by up to 40%, saving you money.

  4. How long will it last?

    The SimplySoft EQ-AST-WH is designed to last up to 6 years.

  5. How do I know when to replace it?

    It is recommended you change out your SimplySoft tanks every 6 years for optimal performance.

  6. Does it eliminate scaling?

    SimplySoft is designed to prevent the harmful effects of scale buildup in internal pipes and plumbing. Our system uses your water's flow to alter the charge of hard mineral ions so they do not bind together to create scale buildup. Unlike salt-based softeners, SimplySoft does not need to remove the hard minerals from your water in order to reduce buildup.

  7. Will the system reduce my hardness or TDS levels?

    No. Our system uses your water's flow to alter the charge of hard mineral ions so they do not bind together to create scale buildup. Unlike salt-based softeners, SimplySoft does not need to remove the hard minerals from your water in order to reduce scaling. Because hard minerals are not replaced by salt or other chemicals, TDS levels will still remain the same even though scale formation is inhibited and SimplySoft is working to protect your internal plumbing.

  8. I still see calcium deposits on my dishes. Is my salt-free softener working?

    Yes. Unlike salt-based softeners that replace minerals like calcium with salt, SimplySoft instead uses the flow of your water to alter the charge of hard minerals so they do not bind to one another to create scale. Because SimplySoft alters the charge of hard minerals to inhibit scale formation and does not replace them with salt or chemicals, hard minerals remain in your water and will pass safely through your pipes and down the drain. If the calcium levels in your water are high enough, harmless calcium spots can still occur on areas where water is left sitting and can evaporate, leaving hard mineral deposits behind on surfaces like glassware, countertops, pots, pans, chrome faucets or stainless steel. SimplySoft is designed to protect the internal pipes and plumbing in your home from harmful scale buildup.

  9. What is hard water?

    Hard water contains a higher than average amount of dissolved minerals (primarily calcium and magnesium), and a higher concentration of multivalent cations (Ca2+ and Mg2+). Hard water is mostly a nuisance as these dissolved minerals can clump together to produce scale, which can harm your internal pipes, plumbing, and home appliances.

  10. Does having hard water mean it is contaminated?

    No, hard water is more of a nuisance than a health issue, and is not considered contaminated. Most water sources in the USA are considered hard. Is hard water safe to drink? Yes, hard water is healthy enough to drink.

  11. Does having soft water mean it is clean water?

    Soft water does not mean clean water. Your water can be soft and still have contaminants present in the water. Is it safe to drink? Yes, soft water is considered potable as long as the water has not passed through a sodium-based water softener. Drinking water from a sodium-based softener increased your daily intake of sodium, which can lead to health problems in sodium-sensitive individuals.

  12. What is a salt-based water softener?

    A salt-based water softener is a system designed to remove/reduce calcium and magnesium from the water by exchanging it with sodium. This is done through an ion exchange resin that alters the molecular structure of the calcium and magnesium from a divalent ion to a univalent ion, making the water "softer." Do softeners reduce chemical contamination? Softeners do not remove chemical contamination themselves, but softeners sometimes have a carbon filter working in conjunction with the softener to treat contamination.

  13. Do I need a licensed plumber to install the whole house filter?

    Yes, Aquasana recommends you have a licensed plumber install the system for you, to ensure that the system is installed properly. Since most licensed plumbers carry insurance to cover any damages caused by an installation error, having a licensed plumber install the system for you will give you the security that the work was done properly and that the installation is backed up by the plumbing company's insurance plan. Not having the system installed by a licensed plumber will void the warranty of all our whole house filter systems.

Is this a filtration system as well? Or just a softener?

Asked by: Fishfly73
Thank you for your interest in Aquasana. This is just a descaler system. If you want to filter your water as well, you will need to utilize a filtration tank in conjunction. Please feel free to contact our team at 866.662.6885 so that we can assist in building a system that fits your needs. Thank you, Aquasana Customer Support.
