“No Salt” Water Softener Uses Membrane Filters
The convenience of not having to haul softening salt and bottled water attracts customers to The Water Clinic “no salt” water softener. But the purity of the water makes them customers for life, says Philip Stadnyk, president and one of the owners of The Water Clinic, based in Saskatoon, Sask.
  The system purifies water with proprietary membrane technology.
  “Once the water is tested we can determine what type of membrane system and capacity should be installed,” Stadnyk explains. “The technology is different than reverse osmosis, because our membranes remove iron, manganese, hardness and total dissolved solids.”
  Most customers in North America are rural homeowners who have their own wells or ponds and are concerned about water quality. Besides awareness of chemicals used for farming that can leach into groundwater, they appreciate other benefits of the membrane system.
  “Customers in the farm sector feed the water to the shop and wash their farm implements so they are spot free,” Stadnyk says. Poultry and other livestock producers can raise birds and animals to maturity in fewer days and save money, because the water is better so they drink more water and need less food.
  The Water Clinic has dealers in both Canada and the U.S. Within a few minutes of taking a water test, the water consultant can determine which system is needed.
  Equipment and installation can range from $3,000 to $15,000 depending on how bad the water is and the quantity of water used, Stadnyk says.
  To maintain the system, the membrane (about $350) needs to be changed every one to three years depending on the water and quantity used. Replacing the membrane is as easy as changing a furnace filter, Stadnyk says.
  He notes The Water Clinic also works with towns and villages. “Once we install a system for an entire village or town, the residents no longer need to have a water softener, haul salt or ever purchase expensive bottled water again,” he says.
