Many water softeners are salt-based and remove the calcium and magnesium ions that cause hard water by replacing them with sodium and potassium ions. Owners of these water softeners are the ones who tend to complain about salty water. Salty water is unhealthy to drink, tastes terrible, and can actually kill your plants if you water them with it for a long period of time. If you choose to replace your salt-based water softener with a Turbu-Flow water conditioning system, you won’t have any of these problems.
Turbu-Flow is unique in that it has the same water softening effect as a typical salt-based water softener, but it uses absolutely no sodium or any other chemicals. Instead, when water passes through the Turbu-Flow patented alloy core, the water’s flow is erratically disrupted by the blend of metals in the cylinder. Any mineral particles, including those that cause hard water (calcium, magnesium, copper, and sodium), are then broken up into miniscule, nano-sized crystals. In addition, as a result of this process, nuclei are released into the water and actually attract and remove the scale that has already formed on your pipes. This process is called epitaxial nucleation.
