Some top-rated water softeners are the Aquasana 1,000,000 Gallon Rhino, EvoClear Salt-Free Water Softener, GE 30,400 Grain Water Softener and Kenmore High-Efficiency Water Softener, according to Water-Softeners-Review.com. Other top-rated and reviewed water softeners include Krystal Pure H2O, Morton System Saver, US Water Focus Premium Metered Water Softener and WaterBoss 700 Water Softener.
As one of the top-rated water softener of 2015, according to Water-Softeners-Review.com, the Aquasana 1,000,000 Gallon Rhino boasts one prefilter, two chemical filters and one saltless water softener to produce smooth, clean water free of calcium, magnesium, rust and silt. One of the chemical filters removes organic compounds such as bacteria and algae. Although the EvoClear Salt-free Water Softener doesn't contain the Aquasana's double chemical filters, it does have an effective prefilter to remove sediment. A homeowner who uses well water should consider the EvoClear for its ability to treat very hard water and prevent hard water buildup.
The GE 30,400 Grain Water Softener uses a salt resin bed to remove particulates and minerals from water and boasts a large reservoir that holds nearly 200 pounds of salt. The Kenmore High-Efficiency Water Softener also depends upon salt for the removal of minerals. Other water softeners that use salt include the Krystal Pure H2O, Morton System Saver, US Water Focus Premium Metered Water Softener and WaterBoss 700 Water Softener models.
