Is Your Municipality in Northern Ohio and the Ohio Valley Banning Salt-Based Water Softeners?

Introducing a salt-free solution to save you money while reducing scale damage with zero waste.

  1. Expert Installation. Easy To Use.

    Culligan has been in the water treatment service business for more than 85 years…and it’s all we do. Your local Culligan delivers, installs and maintains your water softener system for you, so you don’t have to! No worries about shipping damage, unboxing, or installation location. Just schedule an appointment, then relax and enjoy soft water throughout your home!

  2. A Salt-Free Softener Still Pays Itself Off.

    How can a salt-free water conditioner pay for itself over time? Find out with Culligan’s Salt-Free Conditioner, which uses technology that naturally conditions water and minimizes scaling without the need for backflushing or salt. This results in savings in your water bill with virtually no impact on the environment.

  3. It Works Just Like A Water Softener.

    Unlike a traditional water softener, a salt-free water conditioner does not eliminate hardness-causing minerals, but reduces their ability to form that costly scale. Its anti-scaling media protects your home’s major appliances and plumbing, making it easy to clean out your tub or sink. Likewise, NO salt purchasing is ever required!

  4. Why Price Tags Are Deceptive

    Unless you were an expert installer, you wouldn’t buy a water heater directly off Amazon. However, big box retailers, both in-store and online, take this transactional approach to homeowners for water softening products. They offer you low price tags for incentive. But what they don’t tell you about are the installation hassle, the third-party customer service on both ends, and how you’re left to your own devices to maintain your system – don’t forget, your home is unique. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. If you truly want to save throughout the life of your system, go with the expert!

Problem Water

Ohio Valley Water Issues

Drinking water in the Ohio Valley can vary greatly depending on where you live, reaching as high as 32 grains per gallon (gr/gal) or 500 parts per million (ppm). The USGS classifies more than 180 ppm as “very hard” But what in it actually makes it hard? It’s generally the magnesium and calcium content.

Salt-based water softeners aren’t banned in any area located in the Ohio Valley.

Anywhere in the Ohio Valley you can access the annual Drinking Water Quality Report. This is also known as a consumer confidence report, and provides detailed data on the composition of your municipal water annually.

We serve Cincinnati, Dayton, Lima, Fairborn, Fairfield, Jackson, Coalton, and much of Western Ohio along with parts of Eastern Indiana.

Salt-Free Conditioner FAQ

We Have Answers!

Why Are There Restrictions On Salt-Based Water Softeners?

While the evidence suggests that the economic benefits of brine restrictions are grossly overstated, some communities across the country have chosen to prohibit the installation of conventional water softeners that require the use of brine.

What Are The Benefits Of Salt-Free Water Conditioners?

A Culligan Salt-Free Water Conditioner is virtually maintenance-free while reducing the potential damaging effects of pesky compounds like calcium and magnesium. No salt in your system and no salt discharge in your community. Plus, no salt bags, ever!

Does the Salt-Based System Require Electricity?

No. In fact, a Culligan Salt-Free Conditioner reduces your carbon footprint with zero waste of water and no electricity required.

Does A Salt-Free Conditioner Cost More Than A Traditional Water Softener?

The answer is, it depends. A more advanced Salt-Free Conditioner system will run more in price than the most basic of water softening systems. At Culligan, every estimate requires an inspection of your plumbing to ensure installation can be performed. Culligan takes into account the size of your home, the number of people, and the number bathrooms to determine the right system for you and your family. Many of our customers prefer to finance their system due to our great financing specials. For example, your local Culligan dealer has finance options as low as $15 a month*.

What Type Of Media Is The Filter?

Depending on the model, your conditioner can have both activated carbon as well as anti-scaling media. Culligan can also install pre-filters for sediment and compounds that can affect the appearance, taste, and odor of your water.

* Based on financing a $1500 system to qualified buyers. See dealer for complete details. Offers and participation may vary.
