FresnoPlumbing's trick will show you how to make a fully effective water softener using material costing less than $25.
Do you live in an area with hard water? Then you probably have all sorts of problems with scale, and I'm sure you've heard that a water softener is the solution. I used to recommend them and install them myself. But the cost is high for most people and they prefer to live with scale than to spend a couple thousand bucks on a machine that will break down in a few years. Nowadays they are building them cheaper. This guy went on social media and got one for around $200. His blog only talks about 3 brands though. You can find a more thorough comparison including ranking by price and value for the popular water softener brands on this site.
But that's not the advice I'm offering here. My advice is to make your own water softener and that will cost you around $25 in material and just a little bit of effort, no more. Well, technically, it will not be a water softener. It will be a water conditioner. The difference is that a water conditioner will simply eliminate the effects of the calcium instead of removing it. The results are pretty much the same: no scale, soap and detergents work much better, no ruined appliances, no clogged pipes, no spotted glasses. The water conditioner is much easier because it does not need salt or backwashing and cleaning. The only case where you are better off with a true water softener is if you have very hard water or well water. Otherwise, why spent over $1,000 when you can do it for $25?
If you want a solution for your hard water and don't want to spend much money, then this is for you. It is very easy and quick to make and will last for many many years. And you don't need salt or chemicals for it. I've been doing this for my customers for at least 4 years now. I make it and put it in for $60 and almost every one of them is happy. Here, I tell you how to do it yourself and I am asking for $19 only for this information. You will need to pay around $20-$25 more when you buy the material you need.
