Enjoy the benefits of softer water in a healthy, convenient, cost-effective, eco-friendly way that harnesses the natural power of citrus to prevent and even reverse hard-water problems in your home. The NuvoH2O DPHB "Home" system salt-free water softener has a compact design that fits in a small space yet can meet the water demands of homes between 1000-2000 square feet (larger and smaller capacity systems are available); and it comes with the first cartridge, mounting hardware, and a housing wrench. Activating the scientific process of chelation, the NuvoH2O salt-free water softening system effectively lowers the PH level of water and binds metal ions that cause hard water (mainly calcium and magnesium) to its proprietary, FDA-approved, citrus-based chelating agent. This process prevents damaging and corrosive scale deposits from forming and removes existing scale to protect and extend the life of your water heater, plumbing fixtures, and water-utilizing appliances. You will save money on utility bills because the NuvoH2O system requires no electricity and doesn't waste water like salt-based softeners that must regularly flush the system. Some municipalities and states have banned conventional water softeners in order to stop excessive levels of sodium from entering groundwater as well as reclamation systems that recycle water for irrigation. You will also save in other household expenses, using less soap, conditioners, and lotions. With naturally-conditioned water produced by the NuvoH2O system, your hair and skin will be healthier, and your laundry will be brighter and softer. This NuvoH2O DPHB "Home" system salt-free water softener is backed by a 90-day, money-back guarantee and a lifetime warranty.
