Saltless Water Conditioning Systems

Culligan-conditioned water you trust, without the salt.

Whether you live in a brine-restricted area, or you're just exploring water softening and filtration solutions, Culligan offers plenty of salt-free water conditioning and filtration options to target your specific problem water needs. 

Soften Without Salt

Portable exchange softeners provide soft water, even in brine-restricted areas.

No Magic Required

Studies show magnetic water conditioning doesn't work, but Culligan solutions do. 

Advanced Filtration Solutions

Benefits of Salt Free Water Conditioning Systems

Culligan offers many other salt-free options that enhance your water and improve its taste, including:

  • Culligan Portable Exchange Softener Service — In many locations, Culligan offers Portable Exchange softeners, which are a great alternative to a salt-regenerating, in-home water softener. Portable exchange softeners do not regenerate while installed in your home, so they are able to provide genuine Culligan soft water to your home – even in brine-restricted areas where certain types of softeners are not permitted. 
  • Under-Sink Filtration Systems — Our full line of salt-free, under-sink filtration systems ensure your drinking water is fresh, clean, and clear of unwanted tastes, odours, and contaminants. Although these systems do not soften water, they also do not use salt and can be used everywhere – even in brine-restricted areas.
  • Whole-House Water Filtration — Culligan offers whole-house filtration to improve any unwanted tastes and smells that can sometimes occur in problem water. This way, you get fresher, better-tasting water from every faucet in your house.

Specifications of Salt Free Water Conditioning Systems

Buyer beware: magnetic water filtration

Some companies claim that they can soften and filter water with magnets, but several independent reports have found this claim to be false.

  • WQA Magnetics Task Force — Laboratory tests by independent third parties suggest that magnetic water treatment devices do not deliver the benefits of soft water. Additionally, third-party research has consistently concluded that these products do not work in all water conditions, and 34 separate report papers have indicated that physical water treatment does not work in a consistent and predictable way.
  • Demonstration and Evaluation of Magnetic Descalers — The Army Corp of Engineers tested two magnetic devices (Descal-A-Matic and Aqua Magnetic) and one electronic device (Ener Tec) in 2001. The findings do not support the claims of the manufacturers regarding the ability of their respective devices to prevent mineral scale formation in hot potable water systems.
  • WQA Consumer Alert —WQA determined no performance test standard for Physical Treatment Devices exists in the U.S. for “salt-free” devices. 
  • Magnetic Water Treatment Devices — Penn State University states there is virtually no valid scientific data to support any water treatment benefit from magnetic devices. Companies use testimonials from “hundreds of satisfied customers” to support their claims.
  • Quantitative Assessment of the Effectiveness of Permanent Magnetic Water Conditioner Devices — Purdue University tested six unidentified magnetic water conditioning devices and compared them to untreated water. Testing lasted for 240 days. No beneficial effect was seen for the magnetic treatment devices.
  • Performance of Permanent Magnet Type Water Treatment Device — South Dakota Magnet School of Mines & Technology tested two different classes of magnetic water treatment devices. Measurements included boiling point depression, surface tension, water conductivity, and “scaling rate.”  No difference seen between raw water and magnets.
