EAGLE® SOFT SALT-FREE SOFTENER FOR HEALTHIER, SODIUM-FREE WATER!
The Eagle® Soft Salt-Free Water Softener Requires No Maintenance, Wastes No Water, & Saves You Money! Finally, no more hard water! Your appliances, garden and pets will love it!
Traditional salt-based systems use salt which may add sodium to the water supply. Trusted and leading in water filtration technology, Eagle® Soft Salt-Free Softener is an innovative way to treat hard water without the use of sodium or potassium. Crystal Quest up-flow systems require no salt replacements or electricity to drain.
BENEFITS OF EAGLE® SOFT SALT-FREE WATER SOFTENING
*Must be installed by a licensed technician. See Installation Guide for installation site temperature range and permitted weather conditions.
The process of our salt-free water softener media is template-assisted crystallization. This process has been tested and certified for scale reduction.
The process takes hard water (calcium and magnesium) and transforms the ions into microscopic nano crystals. This suspends the particles so that they cannot “stick” or cause scale while the water travels through. Eagle® Soft Salt-Free Softeners do not add anything or remove anything from the water, retaining the important naturally occurring minerals, especially calcium and magnesium.
Some selected municipalities have banned the use of salt-based water softeners. Eagle® Soft Salt-Free Softeners do not discharge saline water into the environment, pipes or water heaters and require virtually no maintenance or residual costs.
Most American households have hard water. Find out below how your geographical area rates and how we can help you overcome your hard water problem.
Crystal Quest® Saltless Water Softener is a new technology which transforms the calcium (hardness) of the water into mechanically stable and heat resistant calcite crystals (nanometer size) which no longer cause lime deposits. The calcium is simply rinsed away.
Calcium (hardness) creates scale in pipes, on appliances and other plumbing surfaces. This leads to higher heating and energy costs and expensive repairs to appliances. Scale can also be a source for bacteria to grow, which can be a health concern in drinking water applications. It also removes the already existing scale from pipes and heat exchanger surfaces (descaling effect) and further protects the system from future formation of scale (scale protection effect).
The calcium crystals which are rinsed away by the water cannot attach to any surfaces but, due to the nanostructure of the crystals, they have a function similar to the Crystal Quest® Eagle® Anti-Scale Media. It binds additional calcium to itself and therefore breaks the grid binding structure of the calcium deposits. The result is that even after a short time large pieces of deposits are removed. This process continues until the surface is free from deposits.
After the old calcium deposits are removed, a 30- to 80-micron thick corrosion-preventing layer is formed. This layer forms because of the reaction of the nano surface of the crystals and the metallic surface of the pipes. This is comparable to the green layer of verdigris on a copper roof. As soon as the protective layer is formed it can no longer grow bigger, but it creates complete protection.
* If present in the water
Softener media may be required as a pretreatment for anti-scale in some hard waters. With a softener you will totally eliminate the use of salt and wasted water that comes along with backwashing, while still providing your home with comfortable, soft-feeling water. Used as an alternative to salt-based softeners, Eaglesorb ES3 scale control media prevents the negative effects of calcium and magnesium while allowing the positive health benefits to remain.

**Additional media is required for every 5 grains of hardness over 25 grains. Consult a water specialist for recommendation.
What is Ultrafiltration (UF)?
Similar to the concept of Reverse Osmosis, only Ultrafiltration uses a different membrane to remove viruses & retain larger particles up to 0.2-micron size.
