EasyWater – No More Salt!

The advantages of not using salt to condition your water are enormous and can impact all areas of your life. Because EasyWater does not use any salt to condition hard water, it is much more beneficial to both your health and the environment than a traditional water softener.

Better for Your Health

According to the Centers for Disease Control, high salt or sodium in the diet causes raised blood pressure level, which is a leading source of disease and failure of both the heart and kidneys. Learn More About Heart Disease Risks: www.cdc.gov/heartdisease/risk_factors.htm

All water softeners use the same operating principle: They trade the calcium and magnesium for something else, usually sodium. This process is called ion exchange. During this process, each calcium or magnesium ion is replaced by TWO sodium ions. The ion exchange softening adds about 8mg/L of sodium to the water for each grain per gallon of hardness removed. So a person who drinks two liters of water (2L) of softened, extremely hard water (assume 20 gpg) will consume about 320 mg more sodium than if the consumed water is unsoftened. (2L x 20gpg x 8mg/L/gpg = 320 mg)

Both calcium and magnesium are essential to human health. Drinking water can be a beneficial source of those minerals when they are allowed to remain in the water.

Liz Lipski, PhD, CCN, co-founder, director of InnovativeHealing.com and author of Digestive Wellness says, “While any good, clean water will keep your body and your skin hydrated, hard water, the kind high in minerals, is especially good. Using water softeners to de-mineralize drinking water may reduce some of the potentially helpful effects. A water softener may help your plumbing, but it’s hard water that is better for your health.” (From WebMD article: The ABCs of a Healthy Skin Diet)

In excerpts from a World Health Organization meeting, “Experts on the Possible Protective Effect of Hard Water against Cardiovascular Disease”, researchers say in regard to point of entry and point of use devices “users of these devices should be made aware of the changes in mineral composition that arise and the possible consequences for total nutrient intake and human health. For example, those who sell or install these devices may be encouraged to bring to the attention of the users of these devices the possibility of reduced mineral intake and alternative means for their replacement.”

Better for the Environment

Imagine taking a 40 pound bag of salt and dumping it straight into your local river, lake or aquifer. That is what happens when you use salt to condition your water. Salt discharged by softeners is not removed by wastewater treatment plants and so flows right back into the water sources. That is why salt type water softeners have recently had restrictive bans placed on them in states such as Texas, California, Michigan, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.

Better for Your Wallet

EasyWater can save you hundreds each year by simply not having to purchase bags of salt each month.
