12 Jun The True Cost of Salt Based Water Filtration Systems are Higher Than You Know
Who doesn’t want fresh, clean water in their home? As you begin to research filtration systems, it’s important that you understand that not every system is the same. Many filtration systems on the market use salt and potassium to soften and filter water. The problem with these systems is that they can cause expenses that you didn’t even anticipate.
It all comes down to the fact that salt is corrosive over time. Even a small buildup of salt can cause damage with enough time. Think of salt deposit from your water filtration system hanging out in your pipes, swishing around your washer, and swirling in your washer. This salt will slowly corrode your pipes and your appliances. In fact, we’ve seen cases where homeowners have had to replace their hot water tank every three to five years! Water heaters are not cheap.
When comparing different water filtration systems, keep the true cost in mind. WATERBOY™ does not use any salt or chemicals to purify water.
