Savings:100's yearly
Description:I had a water softener in my new house, and I hated it. Every time I turned around I was out of salt, and at $4.oo a bag that added up real quick. And that slimy feeling, I could do without it. In our town the water is so hard I had no choice. So I did some research and found a great product that saves me tons of money. Not only does it get rid of my hard water, it's much healthier for my family. It's great for your skin and hair. We worry so much about the water we drink when we should be equally concerned about the water we shower in. Your skin is the largest organ you have and it spends a lot of time in water.

This product does a LOT more than get rid of your hard water problem. It cleans your pipes out, reducing blockage. It cleans the heating elements of your hot water heater so well you'll have to drain it a couple of times to get rid of the sediment. Which, by the way, extends the life of your water heater. It removes hard water build-up on your tub and shower doors and gives you really clean dishes hot out of the dishwasher.

You'll save money on soaps, shampoos, detergents and things I haven't thought of yet. And you will be amazed at how your plants and grass grow. If you have a garden be prepared for a bumper crop. If you have flowers you will love the big blooms and radiant colors. Did I mention how good the water tastes? If you live in an area with bad water you'll still need a filter of some kind for your drinking water, but it will taste better.

No more salt, in fact, except for the system itself there's nothing else to buy. And it won't cost you an arm or a leg. There's even one for well systems. Check out Trentatronics, they guarantee you'll love it. I know you will.
