Unlike salt-based softeners, Aquasana's Salt-Free Water Conditioner won't demineralize your water by chemically removing minerals nor will it put excess salt waste or chemicals into our environment.

Pure Performance

Innovative Technology

SCM salt-free 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 » Water Conditioners vs. Traditional Water Softeners

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

Protect your home and appliances with an Aquasana Salt-Free Water Conditioner.

Innovative Salt-Free 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 technology is proven to reduce scale on internal pipes and plumbing. Unlike salt based softeners, Aquasana's Salt-Free Water Conditioner will not demineralize your water, harm your pipes with harsh salt, or put excessive amounts of sodium waste into our communal water supply.

Rhino Descaling Technology

Pure Performance

Low Maintenance

Never lug around heavy bags of salt again! Long lasting systems are easy to replace and last 6 years. Aquasana's Salt-Free Water Conditioner does not require electricity, drainage for wastewater, or complicated salt replacement.

How It Works

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gereat Value This product is without a doubt the most ecologically friendly unit on the market. We could not be happier

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pricing, fast delivery! The system I bought was available quickly and as a separate component as opposed to more complicated systems. I only wanted a soft water (not filtration) system and that is what I got at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Salt! We bought the Salt Free Water Softener recently. We have enjoyed getting soft water again after our previous water softener bit the dust. I like the no salt feature especially.

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 5 out of 5 by from great product Don't use the supplied 1" to 3-4" adapters included in the kit...they leak even with Teflon tape! Instead, get the brass ones from your local store, they are super expensive, but won't leak. However... very easy to install if you have basic plumbing and-or mechanical skills. I have a tiny utility room and had to be creative with the install, but was easy to set up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install and water improved Installed the water conditioner about 3 weeks ago. Installation was not complicated. My installation was done outdoors in the sun. I painted it to protect it and the piping to protect it from the sun. The water feels and behaves less hard. I would recommend the SimplySoft Salt-Free Whole House Water Softener

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Works! Before we had this installed, our faucets (kitchen, vanity, bathtub, showers) were covered and rotting away from scale buildup. We've also had two washing machines destroyed by these buildups. My hair was dry, brittle and badly damaged. I wasn't aware that the hard water from scale had built up so much that it took most of my hair out before I researched and found that "scale" and hard water can contribute to hair loss. I'm seeing much changes happening since the installation: No more spotty build-up around faucets. I still continue to use vinegar to rinse my dishes after washing because I believe it will take some time for pipes to return to normal state (from buildup inside).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from finally clean bathroom bowls! I had a lot of trouble with calcium built up on my appliances and toilet bowl from our hard well water. I purchased this whole house water softener to save my appliances. My husband installed it in about half a day. We had to cut some pipes and move our hot water heater to make room for this filter. I am so happy and releived now that my toilet is clean looking and so far it works. Compared to other systems, the filter is reasonably prices and the whole system was also a great price. It didn't take too much room between our well tank and our hot water heater. This should also save our hot water heater. I am satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Filtering Having a well, couldn't believe how much sludge was being filtered out. Replaced water softener with Aquasana 600. My morning coffee tastes so much better and I have stopped buying bottled water.
Date published: 2017-11-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive but effective My renter complained about the hard well water at our property and I researched a few whole house softener options. I was wary of the salt-free softeners since I had read mixed reviews but was also apprehensive about traditional softeners that required regular salt additions as well as had adverse environmental impact. I settled on Aquasana purely on a whim. So far my renter is happy :): "...our skin and hair is back to normal and the dishes are looking amazing...". Overall, initial (second hand!) impressions are good (couple weeks of use) and we'll keep an eye on future maintenance and durability.

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 conditioner 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.

Can your salt free water conditioner be used with a osmosis system. To remove traces of arsenic from our well water?

Asked by: Anthony J
Hello,   Thank your for your interest in Aquasana. The Whole Home system does not remove fluoride or arsenic. Both require Reverse Osmosis to be removed/reduced from water. We do offer a Point of Use Reverse Osmosis for your drinking water, and many of our Whole Home customers purchase it in combination.   You may read more about our Reverse Osmosis system at: https://www.aquasana.com/drinking-water-filter-systems/reverse-osmosis-claryum If you are interested in a system, please call 866.662.6885 or e-mail sales@aquasana.com and a representative will be happy to discuss your needs and options.   Thank you,   Aquasana Support
