CuZn’s Template Assisted Crystallization Media conditions the hardness in the same way our wide spectrum models condition the hardness to prevent scale. The main difference is that Template Assisted Crystallization Media is capable of conditioning much higher levels of hardness.
Click here to view an independent study by Arizona State University that compares various alternatives to salt based softening and you will see that CuZn’s Template Assisted Crystallization is the only effective alternative to salt based water softening.
Salt Free Water Softening & Scale prevention! Unlike traditional salt based water softeners, CuZn’s Salt Free Systems won’t make your water feel slimy, have hair flattening effects, strip beneficial minerals or add salt to your water. CuZn’s Salt Free Whole House Water Softener Systems utilize an entire tank of Template Assisted Crystallization Media and is an ideal choice for those with hardness above 8 grains.
Our technologically advanced salt free Anti-Scale Medias are an innovative solution that prevents all of the negative effects of calcium and magnesium, while allowing the positive health benefits to remain by not removing the calcium and magnesium. Within a water system, calcium and magnesium can adhere to plumbing and water appliances by forming crystalline scale structures. Untreated, these minerals become hard, interfere with heat transfer and eventually cause loss of water flow and pressure. Untreated hardness can increase your home’s energy bill up to 20%!
KDF reshapes these hardness ions so they cannot adhere to each other or to the inside of plumbing. Instead the calcium and magnesium ions remain soluble in the water, thus preventing scale while adding life to the water.
*In some cases harsh detergents, high in chlorine/bleach or phosphates can cause mineral like deposits to form on dishes. To avoid this issue use Jet Dry or similar product, reduce the amount of harsh detergent used or best of all – Use an Eco Friendly brand
Replace the media inside the WHCC7-35H every 5 Years, your system will be marked with the date of purchase for your reference.
STEP 1: All the products on our website that are designated “Wide Spectrum” are designed for use with water that has been treated with chlorine. All products on our website listed as “Chloramine Wide Spectrum” are designed for use with water that has been treated with Chloramine. Determining if your water is treated with chlorine or chloramine is the first step.
STEP 2: Determine if your water is considered to have “High Total Hardness” (above 8 grains of Total Hardness or 137ppm of Total Hardness). Our Wide Spectrum & Chloramine Wide Spectrum Model Whole House Filters are capable of conditioning hardness up to 8 grains. If your water contains “High Hardness” we recommend adding a Salt Free Water Softening for High Hardness tank to your system.
Left unconditioned, high hardness can cause damage by building up scale in the plumbing & appliances throughout your home. Our revolutionary Salt-Free Softening Technology conditions hardness minerals to prevent scale while allowing the beneficial hardness minerals to remain in the water.
