The hard water test kit used for this demonstration is the Hach 5B Hardness Test Kit (cat. no. 145300). It detects the presence of hard water minerals by turning pink which represents a hard water sample. Furthermore it detects soft water by turning blue which represents the absence of hardness minerals. As you can see from the test results a traditional salt based water softener makes soft water while the salt free system does not. The salt free water softener in this test was provided by Pelican Water Treatment.
- Salt Free Water Softeners and Traditional Salt Based Softeners produce measureably different results
- Traditional Salt Based Water softeners work by removing the unwanted hardness minerals from your water=hard water symptoms impossible
- Salt Free Systems do not remove any of the hardness minerals in your water=hard water symptoms likely
- Salt Free Systems cannot produce a definitive test result to confirm the application is working with your water
