Water softeners can benefit homeowners by extending the life of their plumbing and appliances. But not all water softeners are created equal. In fact, on average, traditional water softeners dump about 150 gallons of heavy salt brine water into septic and sewer systems each week. This can allow large amounts of sodium to leak into fresh water supply, which can pose a serious threat to both the environment and human health.
The good news is that there is an alternative to salt-type water softeners. The NuvoH2O water softener uses an innovative process to eliminate the harsh effects of hard water without the harmful impact that traditional water softeners can have on the environment. Read on to find out more about what the NuvoH2O system is and what benefits it can provide homeowners just like you.
What is the NuvoH2O Water Softener?
The NuvoH2O Water Softener is a hard water softening and conditioning system with an innovative, environmentally-friendly design. This system works to deliver soft, clean water to your home that can easily rinse from surfaces without leaving behind residue. The system works by preventing calcium and magnesium in your water from forming hard water scale deposits in your plumbing, pipes, and water heaters, which can cause clogged faucets and shower heads as well as a loss of water pressure and other issues. According to one study by Battelle, the NuvoH2O system effectively prevented over 98% of scale formation over a 2.2 year testing period.
Not only does the NuvoH2O system prevent scale build-up, but it is also effective at removing existing scale and improving energy efficiency. The Battelle study found that water heaters treated with NuvoH2O showed a 25% shorter time in getting to a steady state of operation, as compared with those that were left untreated. Scale on untreated water heating systems acts as a barrier to heat transfer. This means that it takes longer for untreated systems to heat the water, which reduces energy efficiency and can cause an increase in energy costs.
