In many locations, Culligan offers portable exchange softeners which are a great alternative to a salt-regenerating, in-home water softener. Portable exchange softeners do not regenerate while installed in your home, so they are able to provide genuine Culligan soft water to your home – even in brine-restricted areas where certain types of softeners are not permitted.
Culligan also offers several filtration systems which can be used to improve all of the water in your home. These systems do not soften water but they also do not use salt and so they can be used everywhere – even in brine-restricted areas. Culligan offers whole-house filtration to improve the taste and reduce levels of chlorine and many types of odors which can occur in water. We also offer filters to reduce levels of sediment, iron, color, nitrates and/or sulfur which may be in your water.
Laboratory tests by independent third parties
suggest that magnetic water treatment devices do not deliver the benefits of
soft water. Additionally, third-party research has consistently concluded that
these products do not work in all water conditions, and 34 separate report
papers have indicated that physical water treatment does not work in a
consistent and predictable way.
Title: WQA Magnetics Task Force
The Army Corp of Engineers tested two magnetic
devices (Descal-A-Matic and Aqua Magnetic) and one electronic device (Ener Tec)
in 2001. The findings do not support the claims of the manufacturers regarding
the ability of their respective devices to prevent mineral scale formation in
hot potable water systems.
Title: Demonstration and Evaluation of Magnetic Descalers
WQA determined no performance test standard for Physical
Treatment Devices exists in the U.S. for “salt-free” devices.
Title: WQA Consumer Alert
Penn State University states there is virtually no
valid scientific data to support any water treatment benefit from magnetic
devices. Companies use testimonials from “hundreds of satisfied customers” to
support their claims.
Title: Magnetic Water Treatment Devices
Purdue University tested six unidentified magnetic
water conditioning devices and compared them to untreated water. Testing lasted
for 240 days. No beneficial effect was seen for the magnetic treatment devices.
Title: Quantitative Assessment of the Effectiveness of Permanent Magnetic Water Conditioner Devices
South Dakota Magnet School of Mines & Technology
tested two different classes of magnetic water treatment devices. Measurements
included boiling point depression, surface tension, water conductivity, and
“scaling rate.” No difference seen between raw water and magnets.
