The Eco-Series Tier1 Whole House Salt-Free Water Softener System utilizes the latest in salt-free softening technology to provide an easy to maintain, high-performance system. The Eco-Series uses Template Assisted Crystallization (TAC) technology to soften water. This type of filtration does not require a brine tank, expensive replacement salt, or a control valve and does not produce backwash waste. Instead of removing calcium and magnesium from the water like traditional softeners, it changes them from their ionic form to a harmless crystalline form. In this state, they are stable and will not attach to pipes and appliances. Reducing scale build-up is important as it can otherwise wear on your pipes and water-using appliances to cause inefficiencies and even early equipment failure. Since the media is preloaded into the tank and there is no need for electrical valve programming, this system is easy to install and operate, very little to no maintenance is required.

Usage of the salt-free conditioning system on private well water must meet the following requirements:

A pre-treatment system for Iron, Manganese, Copper, and Sulfur must be installed prior to the salt-free conditioner unless a professional water analysis shows that the raw well water meets the following chemistry requirements: Iron less than 0.3 mg/L, Manganese less than 0.05 mg/L, copper less than 1.3 mg/L.

Salt Free Softener Advantages

Tier1's salt free softener boasts many user convenience advantages to our traditional softener systems. These advantages include the following:

No Valve Programming

Salt free systems do not require valve programming during set up. This system simply needs to be connected to the water line and it will go to work, no need for finding the settings that work best for you or finding out how to navigate the valve head menu.

Expensive Salt Replacement is a Thing of the Past

Salt free water softeners are an alternative to traditional water softeners. This growing category of water treatment does not remove the scale contributing contaminants from the water but rather turns them into a harmless crystalline form that prevents them from bonding together and causing scale build up. The contaminants such as calcium and manganese are then washed down the drain in their crystalline forms. This treatment is effective and reduces the need for expensive salts, frequent monitoring, and brine washing. Enjoy smoother hair, spotless dishes, and brighter laundry with softened water. Relax as Tier1 salt free water softening solutions make the process simple to monitor and control.

No Brine and Brine Line

Brine solution is bad for the environment and for your plumbing leading down to the drain. By removing this element you can also save the hassle of setting up the brine line directly to a drain or sink. No more exposed drain lines or worry about the air gap. Salt free systems offer this installation and operation convenience.

Importance of Pre-Filtration

Pre-filtration is a wise move for whole home solution systems as it filters out particles that would otherwise clog up the following systems. Usually in the form of sediment filters such as polypropylene and pleated media or as carbon block filters, these pre-filters offer a primary layer of defense to help extend the life of whole home systems and filter out larger particles. This layer of defense is fairly standard on reverse osmosis systems and softeners as it is advised to protect these systems but even if you don't have this equipment, whole home housings and filters effectively reduce the amount of dirt, sediment, and silt that would flow through your plumbing and affect your water using appliances. Ensure you have the protection your systems and home need with Tier's line of Whole House Cartridge Systems.

Template Assisted Crystallization (TAC)

Template Assisted Crystallization (TAC) is a form of water refinement that provides softened water without removing the hardness minerals. Instead of trapping and then expelling the minerals which contribute to hardness (brine solution), this salt free softener uses specialized resin which turns the minerals into their less ionic and more stable crystalline forms. In this state they are incapable of bonding to each other or other surfaces and are effectively washed down the drain. This process reduces the chance of continued scale development and may result in enhanced effectiveness of soaps and detergents. These crystalline minerals pose no health risk, and additionally, the process does not add extra sodium into your water like a traditional softener would during ion exchange process.
