I need to replace my water softener. I am debating buying one that uses salt and one that doesn't. I know both keep pipes clean, but how do they affect hair and clothes? I use color on my hair and they recommend soft water. Would the one without salt work the same on my hair? I have researched Pelican and Aquasana. Both are expensive. You mentioned another one whose name I can't remember. Help!
I'm personally a fan of salt-free water softeners, and have had success with EasyWater. Here's how it works: You know how magnets repel one another when two positives are pressed together? EasyWater's technology is similar: Water comes into your house, and EasyWater creates a magnetic field within the water that causes hard water particles from sticking together. Another perk to EasyWater is that the product is installed at your main water line – so it treats all of the water in your house without the need for a device at each faucet.
