NuvoH2O Water Softening System – Inexpensive, Healthy and Environmentally Friendly
If you live in an area that has hard water, you know the havoc it can wreak on your daily life. It clogs up plumbing, makes your soap less effective and dries out your hair and skin. For years people have used salt based water softeners to remove minerals from their household water, but the excess salt in the water can lead to health issues, especially for the elderly and those who suffer from high blood pressure. Thankfully the NuvoH2O water softening system has a better way.
What Is Hard Water?
Water is called “hard” when it has a high concentration of minerals, including calcium and magnesium. Although these minerals do not present a health problem those who drink the water or use it for cooking, these minerals tend to build up it your pipes and inside appliances, especially those that use hot water. This build up is called scale and it is very hard to remove, thus the name “hard water”. It is not only unsightly and bad for your pipes, but the minerals in the water also make any soaps and detergents you may use less effective leading to more work for you and more money spent on your cleaning supplies. Removing the minerals from your household water will save you time, energy and money.
How Do You Treat Hard Water?
Traditionally, hard water has been treated with a salt based system that uses osmosis to remove the minerals in your water. How this works is, the high concentration of salt in the water in the system draws the minerals out of your water and flushes them down into the sewer. It is a very effective method but it is not without its faults.
First, it leaves a significant amount of salt in your water. Although it is not enough to taste and it will not damage your pipes or make cleaning more difficult, it can present health problems. Using salty water for drinking or cooking can exasperate existing high blood pressure issues and cause some people to retain fluids which can cause problems of it own.
Flushing salty water into your community’s sewer system or into your septic tank also comes with a host of problems. Not only does it inhibit the growth of the bacteria that break down human waste, but if you have a septic tank, the continuous influx of salt water can poison the ground surrounding it.
There Is A Better Way
The nuvoH2O Salt-Free Water Softening Systems use a patent pending technology that allows the healthy minerals to remain in the water but doesn’t allow them to attach or stick to each other and form scale. It uses a process called chelation to make stop the problems that hard water can cause. Nuvo has a patented formula that binds to the minerals in your water so that they are not free to do damage. Although it does not remove the minerals, they are present in a form that will not cause scale or make cleaning product less effective. In effect, the minerals are dissolved into your water.
The formula they use to dissolve the minerals is FDA approved and does not have any harmful side effects. It can also do something that salt based water softening systems can not, it will remove any scale that is already in your pipes of appliances. This means that regular use of the Nuvo H2O water softening system will actually improve and extend the life of your existing plumbing and appliances.
