Lifestream Water Systems offers saltless water softening technology. If you are looking for an alternative to traditional salt based water softening systems, please contact us today, and we can discuss some of the options available for your water softening application, such as a TAC media saltless water softening system.
TAC media anti-scale systems are not water softeners in a technical sense as they do not remove anything from the water and do not change the total hardness of the water. Rather, TAC media anti-scale systems nucleate hardness ions in the water, such as Calcium and Magnesium (commonly referred to as lime scale) so they ions do not adhere to plumbing infrastructure. Please see image for basic representation of this process.
If you have any questions regarding the performance of saltless water softeners, please see the following ASU Scale Control Study which compares 4 different saltless anti-scale technologies. The study found TAC media to be the most promising technology with scale reductions of over 90%.
Please see the Watt’s Scale-Net System brochure located here as an example of saltless water softening systems we provide. Lifestream also supplies commercial water softeners Colorado.
