Are salt-free water conditioners effective in Spokane?

In Spokane, where the water hardness level averages around 13 grains per gallon (gpg), which is significantly higher than the USGS’s hard water threshold of 7gpg, homeowners often face the challenge of managing hard water effects.
These effects include calcium and magnesium buildup (known as limescale)  which can manifest as a white film around fixtures, shower walls, sinks, and other areas frequently in contact with water. Beyond being an aesthetic issue, hard water can also impair the efficiency and longevity of appliances and plumbing fixtures by causing damage or decreased performance.

While saltless water softeners (or salt-free conditioners) don’t remove hardness minerals from the water, they can be effective in preventing the limescale buildup that hard water causes. If your home’s water is slightly hard, a salt-free system might be suitable. However, given Spokane’s significantly hard water, a traditional water softener using salt is often the recommended solution for completely softening the water.
