Salt-free water softening devices has always had its fans and its detractors and most of the opinions about Salt-free water softeners are either great or scathing, with no neutral reviews; the same happens with the Nuvo H2O Manor Complete Salt-free Water Softening System.
The reviews this new system has received are either great or terrible. This means that this system has sort of a niche: it was designed for households with special situations, and for those situations it will work great. However, this system will be terrible for any other situation. So, when it works, it works amazingly well, and when it does not, it will perform horribly.
Let’s keep taking a look at the advantages, disadvantages and features of this system.
The specifications of the Nuvo H20 Manor Complete Salt-Free Water Softening System are:
- It is a Salt-free system (It will not remove the salts that cause hardness, it will just render them permanently harmless)
- It uses filters that must be replaced periodically; each filter has a life of 60,000 gallons before needing replacement
- The physical dimensions of the system are: 8” of width by 29” of length
- It is designed to cover the needs and demands of houses of up to 2,100 square feet or bigger
- It has built-in bypass and pressure release valves
- It has a 90 day money back guarantee and a lifetime warranty
Here are some of the advantages of this system:
- It is pretty easy to install, operate and maintain as it has fewer pieces and parts than a traditional Salt-based water softening system and it requires no salt or electricity to work.
- It gives the water it filters a very good taste (traditional Salt-based systems are known for their tendency to give water a terrible taste)
- Its warranty: it has a 90 day money back guarantee so you can give it back if you decide this system is not what you need, and once that period is over you will have a lifetime warranty on the system.
- It requires no electricity or salt to operate so you will not need to replenish its salt supply every month and spend money and time.
- It is friendly with the environment; unlike Salt-based systems, it will not create any type of waste.
And its disadvantages:
- It can be expensive
- The filters must be replaced every 6 month on average and they can cost up to $100 each, and if the water is too hard then they will have to be replaced more often
- It may not be very efficient if the water supply is too hard
In conclusion, this system is great but if your water supply is too hard (8 and above or if you run off well water) then you will have to look somewhere else; this is because Salt-free systems are not very effecting in dealing with very hard water, and also because very hard water will require you to replace the filter too often and the costs of operating this system will skyrocket.
However, if your water supply is not too hard and if you are also looking for a system that will not require much time and efforts to install and operate (besides the filters), and then this might be the right option for you. Additionally, it has a very small and compact fit, so if you are looking for a system that will not take much space once installed then this system would be perfect, plus, it has the advantage of being a more environmentally-friendly system as it does not create any waste of water filled with salts like traditional Salt-based systems do.
