Also, it offers an easy way to remove all the hassle associated with having hard water running in your home. Generally, this product makes use of the ‘ion exchange’ system.

However, with a dozen of these products out there, decision-making may be overwhelming and challenging. Thus, let’s take a look at one of the top water softeners on the market – Nuvo H20 DPHB Home Salt Water Softener System.
This unit comes with a cartridge that is a bit longer than the typical ones. Instead of the standard 10-inch cartridge, this product has a 20-inch cartridge. Plus, the softener has a modest dimension standing at 5-inch x 5-inch x 24-inch. With the Nuvo H20 DPHB Home Salt Water Softener System, you get more space to install other accessories.
More so, it has a water flow rate of about 12 to 15 gallons per minute. This flow rate is pretty impressive, without slowing down your home water flow.
With a life cycle of almost 50 000 gallons, this should be more than enough for a family of two to make use of without the need to replace for 6 months. The cartridges do not include salt, which is known to have a plethora of consequences.
Nuvo H2O DPHB Performance
This water softener solves your hard water problems in two ways:
1, The product, unlike typical water softeners, is not designed to get rid of minerals such as magnesium and calcium, that are problematic. What it does – binds these troublesome minerals to the filter media, which means these particles can’t bind with your pipework, appliances, and won’t be able to form limescale. As such, these particles are stopped from interacting with your appliances; meaning your water flow won’t be hindered and flow would be normal, as it should be.
This process is the same as the commonly known scientific process called chelation. Magnesium and calcium are vital minerals that must be consumed, so removing them from your water may be a big drawback, which is one advantage this unit has over other typical water softeners.
2, This unit attenuates the water’s PH to make it challenging for the hard water to form. The filter media has citric acid has its main ingredient, which is not a robust organic acid used in soft drinks and found in food. Limescale does well in water with a PH above 7. Thus, with citric acid, you can push the PH from above 7 to 7 (neutral) or lower; means you have remove those ideal conditions for limestone to thrive. Since the PH scale is in the log form, a slight change in the pH level can have a considerable effect.
