SpringWell Water developed the FutureSoft water softener system much different from other salt-free systems you see on the market today. From our proprietary media, to the interior tank design, the FutureSoft system outperforms every other system in the industry. Through years of trial and error, we’re confident that we are the future of salt-free water softening/conditioning systems.
Unlike salt-based water softeners which use a process called ion exchange to remove hard water minerals, salt-free water softeners use a physical process known as Template Assisted Crystallization (TAC). This process converts the hardness-causing minerals in the water to a hardness crystal that won’t stick to any surface in your home, keeping your appliances and hot water heaters free of hard water scale build up. Salt-free softeners are also known as water conditioners because they do not actually “soften” the water; They condition (or neutralize) it. And because these types of systems do not trap any minerals, there’s no need for a cleaning cycle to remove captured ions.
We are one of the few manufacturers who use premium NSF components giving your system optimum performance with reliability and durability. With over 20 years experience in water quality and a strong conviction that every family deserves the absolute purest water available, SpringWell is driven to ensure the best products at the best price with an industry-leading 6-month money back guarantee.
NOTE: If you are on a private well, you will need to pre-treat and filter out iron, manganese, hydrogen sulfide, copper or other contaminants that could foul the Futuresoft media.
Prevents & Cleans Existing Scale
Hard water is a result of mineral build up as well as one of the biggest issues when it comes to your home’s plumbing and appliances. Using our Salt Free System will extend the life of your household appliances by reversing the damaging effects of corrosion. With our Salt Free system, you no longer will need to use harsh chemicals and salts.
Benefits of Salt-Free
Our FutureSoft will crystallize the hard water minerals so they no longer have the ability to stick, etch or bond and therefore, will not cause scale buildup. Also, your daily and/or weekly cleaning is much easier. Instead of the hard water spots sticking they will easily wipe off.
Give Your Appliances a Longer Life
Hard water can wreck havoc on your home’s plumbing and appliances by causing scale buildup in your pipes, clogging them and the aerators. Once this happens it will cause a decrease in the water pressure and also dramatically decreases the lifespan of all household appliances.
Never Needs Replacement
Our innovative salt-free technology was built so no water is wasted and no electricity is needed. Unlike most water softener kits, our system doesn’t use salts.

The FutureSoft water softener media is only half the equation! To just pour some media inside a tank and hope for the best is typical in our industry and many companies try to get away with it. That is not the case with the FutureSoft system. Again, years of experience and thorough testing led us to design a tank that fluidizes the media bed better than any other design on the market. Fluidization is the key to forming calcite crystals. The FutureSoft media converts the hardness in the water to calcite crystals which will not stick to anything even under extreme temperatures. It’s only with the media and the fluidization properly working together that you can achieve this.
The secret is getting it to fluidize properly under low to high flow rates.The average home works on a lower GPM with many stop and start cycles but we built a system that could handle it.. The WQA did a study that determined the average home uses less than 5 GPM at any given time. This is why the FutureSoft water softener system was designed to use ActivFlo Technology. It allows the system to operate at all flow rates and ensure you don’t have any drop in water pressure. SpringWell has also learned that pre-filtration is extremely important for salt free softening media. Besides sediment, salt free media can get fouled and become useless if coated with contaminants such as oil, copper and silica. The FutureSoft System comes with a pre-filtration system that handles these issues and is only replaced once a year.
The Importance of Water Pressure:
What's the point of purchasing a water system, installing it, and getting great tasting water if you're going to have drop in water pressure? That's why at Springwell Water, we build our systems based on the number of bathrooms you have in your home to ensure you get no drop in water pressure.
Here's what you need to think about! The average shower uses 2.1 gallons of water per minute. If your home has 3 full bathrooms and all three showers are turned on at the same time, this means you'll be using about 6.3 gallons per minute (GPM). You need to make sure you are purchasing a system with at least 8 GPM in case your appliances are on as well as kitchen sink, etc.
Our competitors tend to under value the importance of water pressure. Make sure you're not creating a new issue by solving another.

Once the FutureSoft water softener system is installed, depending on the age of your home and the plumbing will depend on what you will see.
- If you live in a new home, you can be sure the system will protect your plumbing, hot water heater, dishwasher, showers, etc. It is designed to protect under high temperatures and low or high water usage.
- If you live in an older home with older pipes and such then you will start to experience a clean out period. Depending on water usage, this can take up to 90 days. FutureSoft softener will actually break down and the clean the inside of your pipes and heating elements. As this happens, you will experience an increase in spotting wherever water evaporates. You will mostly see this in the shower, countertops, shower heads, and faucets. We recommend you flush your hot water heater after the first month of use.
Once the FutureSoft water softener is installed, you will not have a slippery feel to the water as you would have with a salt-based water softener. This doesn’t mean it’s not working. FutureSoft is not adding any sodium to the water and is retaining the important, healthy minerals in your water.
A water hardness test would not show a reduced hardness. How do I know it’s working? The FutureSoft is a salt-free system that does not pull out the hardness to replace them with sodium. The hardness minerals, calcium and magnesium are still present and being crystallized. You will no longer have the downside to hard water, i.e., scaling, etching and clogging of aerators while retaining the beneficial minerals. Also, since the minerals are not being pulled out of the water, you will not be lowering the pH, which can cause water to become acidic helping it to stay alkaline which is very beneficial for you and your home.

NO MORE STRESS ABOUT BOIL WATER ALERTS
Are you the DIY type?
Are you handy or understand a little bit about plumbing? Then watch this installation video and we’ll teach you step by step how to install your new whole house system. Depending on your type of plumbing, you may need elbows, glue, etc. Watch the video for more details.
Or you can hire a plumber/handyman.
If you’re not handy (not all of us are), you will just need to hire a handyman or plumber! If your main water line is coming into your home where you are wanting it installed, it would take approximately 2-3 hours for a single tank and approximately 3-4 hours for a dual system.
All of our water filtration systems come with an installation kit allowing for easy installation with all of the parts
you need. We provide you with detailed installation instructions as well. Order a Springwell Water
Filtration System today and start living a healthier life.
