    These guys are all over the TV and radio. It all sounds very convincing indeed, but this is the same old scam that has been going around for years. This product does nothing. Their site says that traditional softeners use salt to replace the minerals in your water. That is misleading and a LIE. The salt releases the minerals from the media bed. Salt never enters the potable piping.

    Do not get sucked into this crap.

    correction

    You are correct, but to be fair, you should quote them exactly. They do not say the minerals are replaced by salt, they correctly say that they are replaced by sodium, which CAN BE detrimental to those on a low sodium diet. But that is why most users also install an R/O drinking water system, or convert to Potassium Chloride instead of sodium chloride.
