WATER SOFTENER ALTERNATIVE
Why SoftPro Elite Stands Above The Crowd
No Hassle Maintenance
No Water Waste
PREVENT WATER SCALING
Benefits of Water Scaling Prevention
SoftPro's advanced Scale Control Technology (SCT) effectively prevents 99.6% of hard water scaling.
SCT transforms dissolved hard water minerals of calcium and magnesium into inactive, harmless microscopic crystal particles that are then easily passed through your water and down the drain.
Prevents hard water scaling, and reduces existing scale on fixtures and pipes.
Never lug those heavy bags of salt again!
SoftPro Salt-Free systems last 6 years and does not require any electricity, any waste water drainage, nor complicated salt or potassium refills. It's easy!
Unlike salt-based softeners that add excess salt waste or chemicals into our environment, SoftPro Salt-Free Water Conditioner keeps essential and healthy minerals in your water.
Better for your health and better for our world.
Filtersorb SP Media uses proven, advanced salt-free technology called Nucleation Assisted Crystallization (NAC) to remove scale from incoming and existing plumbing fixtures.
Filtersorb SP NAC converts the calcium and magnesium minerals in water into harmless “nano-sized” crystal particles.
These harmless crystal particles do not adhere to fixtures, pipes, valves, or heating elements, thus preventing hard water scaling.
Not only are water spots ugly, the dark side of hard water corrodes dishwashers, faucets and plumbing.
SoftPro SCT naturally and safely prevents scale buildup on plumbing, pipes and appliances without the use of harsh salt or chemicals.
It will also reduce previously scaled-on pipes.
... and you got spot-free dishes and glasses!
No weekly bags of salt or potassium to add. This water softener alternative is designed to last 6 years before replacing the media.

Note. If upgrading to Whole House Upflow Catalytic Carbon & Bone Char Filter, Big Blue Carbon Cartridge Filter will be replaced with a standard sediment cartridge filter.

ADVANCED SALT-FREE TECHNOLOGY BY SOFTPRO
Water Softener versus Salt-Free Conditioner?
Hard water, in scientific terms, is generally excessive amounts of dissolved calcium and magnesium in water.
Salt-based water softeners used to be the only kind of water softeners systems provided to homeowners. Today, SoftPro Salt-Free Water conditioner can keep the healthy minerals while preventing the consequences of hard water scaling.
- Hard Water =
Excessive calcium and/ or magnesium minerals in the water.
It's these minerals that cause water spots and scaling when the hard water dries.
- Soft Water =
Removal of calcium & magnesium minerals from water by use of a chemical reaction with the addition salt.
- Conditioned Water =
Neutralizes calcium & magnesium hard water minerals without chemicals.
Salt-free, water conditioning technology alleviates the negative affects of hard water scaling while adding the soft water benefits and keeping the
Salt-free water conditioners leave healthy calcium and magnesium minerals.
SoftPro salt-free system converts the calcium and magnesium into their crystallized forms. This neutralizes their ability to adhere to surfaces such as pipes, dishes, and faucets.
Calcium and Magnesium can have health benefits, so leaving them in your water can be beneficial.
No Water Waste.
SoftPro Salt-Free plays on a higher level by saving our precious resources.

SoftPro High-Efficiency Salt-Free Conditioner
The quick & dirty summary below...
- Prevents and removes scale on fixtures and plumbing
- Retains beneficial minerals in water
- Easy installation indoors or outdoors
- Provides high quality drinking water
- No electricity required
- No salt required
- No wastewater
- Lifetime warranty
- Made in USA
Does not produce high-lather soap and detergent,
Does not perform on private well water systems
- Reliable eco-friendly performance
- Cost savings
- Low maintenance
Compared to the alternatives on the market, the SoftPro Elite system offers great performance for the price. Its intelligent design achieves two crucial things: breaks-down of hard water mineral’s harmful chemical effect on plumbing and appliances while retaining the important mineral value in your drinking water.
One of the key things that sets the SoftPro apart is its use of an optional whole house catalytic carbon filter to remove highly corrosive chloramines from municipal supply water. We found other systems on the market use different types of carbon that are ineffective against chloramines at higher flow rates.
The fact that SoftPro comes with a lifetime warranty (the internal media, understandably, is not warrantied) reinforces our trust and recommendation of this salt-free system.
The SoftPro Elite Salt-Free Water Softener ticks all the boxes for the eco-minded homeowner who’s looking for a high-quality, reliable system that protects their fixtures and plumbing and provides clean water for drinking and bathing.
Its easy installation and low-maintenance design seals the deal for us.
How Does SoftPro Salt-Free Conditioner Stack Up Against Major Brands?
For the best water softener alternatives, SoftPro Salt-Free tops ALL the competitors across the board in terms of performance, value and, and affordability.

FULL IN-DEPTH REVIEW
Read Our Full SoftPro Salt-Free Water Softener Alternative Review:
We’ve reviewed plenty of water treatment systems on the market over many years. We know what to look for and how to make an informed decision.
Most importantly, we know the value of investing in a high-quality unit that will give the results you’re looking for, pay off down the road, and provide a worry free, no-hassle experience.
That, ladies and gentlemen is the SoftPro Elite salt-free system. And now, if you’ll indulge us, we’ll tell you how we really feel...
For those looking for a lower-maintenance, eco-friendlier alternative to a salt-based water softener, the salt-free SoftPro Salt-Free is the answer. Where a salt-based water softening system requires regeneration (flushing of the resin bed) and thus produces wastewater back into the municipal water-treatment plants, a salt-free water softener sends all of the water it processes back into your home and wastes nothing.
This salt-free process prevents harmful chemicals from damaging your plumbing but keeps the healthy minerals intact. It’s like a magic trick…except we can explain how it’s done.
High-quality construction and design provide the setting for the magic to happen; catalytic carbon is the secret weapon. And there’s so much more. Here’s the breakdown of everything that makes the SoftPro Salt-Free shine:
In a salt-free water treatment system, the media bed has to be lifted up and turned over on a regular basis during the conditioning process.
The SoftPro Elite has been calibrated to a 12 gallons-per-minute flow rate and holds just enough media in order to ensure the process performs as it should, even when the only water flowing is a single shower.
A typical home uses ½ to 5 gallons of water flow per minute, so the 12 GPM capacity proves to be plenty. (If there’s an extreme condition where your home is using more than 12 gallons of water per minute, the process will still kick in—it just won’t be at 100% performance for that period of time.)
Because the SoftPro Elite is carefully designed to balance flow rate capacity and media-bed size, we feel confident the system has you covered and provides the efficiency any homeowner would want and need.
Magnesium and calcium are the main causes of the hard water problem that’s prevalent all over the world. Yet magnesium and calcium provide benefits for our bodily health. So how do we solve one problem without letting go of the good stuff? That’s where the Nucleation Assisted Crystallization (NAC) process comes in.
As water passes through the SoftPro Elite’s NAC system, the crystals reduce the minerals down to a size that’s thousands of times smaller than they originally were. This way, the magnesium and calcium become harmless, stable crystals that can’t affix to your plumbing and fixtures.
The benefits of the magnesium and calcium are still present though, and their new form gives our water the mineral value our bodies need and delivers it in an easily digestible way. Pretty genius.
Because of the SoftPro Elite’s efficient NAC process, magnesium will still be present in your drinking water, which is where it’s the most absorbable to the human body. Magnesium’s benefits include boosting energy, improved digestion, and cell detoxification.
The SoftPro Elite also ensures the benefits of calcium are still present in your treated water, which are great for balancing the body’s PH levels and strengthening bones and teeth. Calcium makes water taste better, too. This system is also great for those on a low-sodium diet since the unit doesn’t add sodium to your drinking water.
Since the SoftPro Elite removes the harmful effects of hard-water minerals and chloramines, pesticides, herbicides and more, you’ll enjoy chemical-free water for drinking and bathing. As a bonus, your pets, lawn, and garden will reap all the benefits too.
The SoftPro Elite will make cleaning easier as well, by reducing scale on showers and appliances. Who doesn’t want to spend less time cleaning and more time on the things you love?
Plumbers, Handymen, and Weekend Warriors
While water softeners are straight-forward to install, SoftPro Salt-Free Conditioner installation is even easier.
No electricity/ power needed.
No drain line needed.
No control valve programming.
From the start, the SoftPro Elite is all about ease. Its installation is simple and no-fuss, since there’s no need for drain connections (no wastewater rushing out) nor control valves to monitor backwashing schedules.
You won’t need to refill it with any chemicals and rarely if ever need to request servicing by a plumber. In general, a typical home’s salt-free water conditioner requires a low amount of media to get the job done, and you’ll need to replace the media only every 6 to 10 years.
The fact that the SoftPro Elite requires next to no upkeep is one of the many reasons we see it as a smart investment.
Unlike the competition, the SoftPro Elite comes with a lifetime warranty on the valve and tank. So even though the system is super-low maintenance, you’re totally covered should anything go wrong.
Why aren’t this unit’s biggest competitors offering that? Things that make you go “hmm…”
UPGRADE OPTIONS REVIEW
Whole House, UV Light & Under Sink Water Filters
When you purchase your SoftPro unit, you’ll get the choice of adding on three different filters.
Each of these filters removes different materials and they compliment each other, meaning you can go with none, one, or all three, depending on how much you want to spend and how perfect (and pure-fect) you want your water to be.
BOTTLED WATER THROUGHOUT HOME
The Catalytic Carbon Superpower
Turns out that chloramines are the latest enemy showing up in drinking water. Many municipal supply companies are using this disinfectant instead of chlorine, despite the fact that chloramines are super corrosive to metal. Chloramines also prove hard to remove in higher-flow rate systems.
Other upflow carbon filters use coconut-based carbon or granulated activated carbon (GAC) but these carbons can’t remove chloramines at higher flow rates. The upflow carbon filter in the SoftPro uses catalytic carbon which can remove chloramines at high flow rates, as well as heavy metals, lead, petroleum products, pesticides, herbicides and more.
The result? Bottled-water quality running through your pipes—great for you and your plumbing.
UV LIGHT DISINFECTION
Light It Up!
Destroy unhealthy and harmful bacteria and microorganisms.
Up to 99.99% are neutralized.
This Viqua UV Disinfection filter works perfectly with the SoftPro Salt-Free Conditioner system.
- Ease of Maintenance:
Granular activated carbon effectively removes or reduces chlorine and chloramine. KDF 55 cubes are recommended for reduction of chlorine in municipal water.
These advanced KDF cube sponges share the same treatment properties as the super efficient KDF Mediaguard filters but not their inefficiencies such as channeling and packing that can cause a drop in water pressure. The net like structure of the cube allows for higher flow rates and easy backwashing.
KDF Aadvanced Sponge Filters:
- Allows higher water flow rates
- Easy backwashing
The really unique thing about our R/O filtration is the addition of the alkalizing filter. Standard RO systems will lower your water’s PH to 6 or 6.0, making it acidic. You may be aware that our bodies don’t do well on acidic water as there have been lots of studies done on Reverse Osmosis (RO) Drinking Water Filters on this subject. This is why it’s important to alkalize your RO water so you’re getting pure, clean, delicious, AND totally healthy water...
Our RO system can handle 75 gallons per day of drinking water, which is more than plenty. It’s a high-efficiency system also. Most RO filters waste 3-5 gallons of water for every 1 gallon of filtered water. But our RO system is a 1 to 1 ratio, making it much more efficient.
It comes with a long reach chrome handle… but if that’s not going to match your current faucet, you can give us a call and we’ll swap out the chrome for a different color if we have it available, absolutely free. When you choose our RO system you’ll enjoy deliciously alkalized, fully filtered bottled-quality water at your kitchen sink.

SoftPro Saltless Water Softener Alternative Review Conclusion
The SoftPro Elite is super efficient because there’s no back flushing and no wastewater—all the water it processes goes directly back into your home. Therefore it provides the perfect means to conserve water and fight drought.
Plus, you’re saving energy too since the system requires no electricity.
Some folks don’t like the slippery feel of soft water when washing hands and showering, which is caused by adding sodium in the water-softening process.
Since the SoftPro Elite is a no-salt water softener that crystallizes the hardness instead of removing it, you’ll get the feel of hard water (never slippery or slimy) with the benefit of having a super clean washing experience that’s absent of all the harmful chemicals.
The SoftPro Elite salt-free water softener is a great money saver as it won’t contribute to your electric bill and doesn’t require you to keep purchasing supplies of salt and other chemicals for replenishing the water-conditioning process.
In addition, not only does this system prevent scale from forming in and on your plumbing and appliances, but the micro-crystals formed through the NAC process actually flow through your pipes and scrape existing scale away. This provides savings on replacements or repairs down the road.
It’s not just washing machines and dishwashers that will benefit from the SoftPro Elite’s conditioning process—you’ll see scale prevention and removal on boilers, sprinkler heads, solar heating systems, humidifiers and more.
So, the unit itself will practically cost you nothing post-purchase, all the while prolonging the life of fixtures, appliances, and other water-treatment systems in your house.
So we just threw a lot of information at you about the SoftPro Elite Salt Free Water Softener—like all the benefits of savings, efficiency, and eco-friendly factors.
As if that weren’t enough, it’s super-easy to install and basically maintains itself.
And don’t forget the SoftPro Elite goes where its competition can’t when combatting those corrosive chloramines.
With everything the SoftPro Elite achieves, including great-tasting drinking water and great-feeling shower water, we feel the SoftPro Elite is a worthy investment and you’ll be happy with its performance for years to come.
