Water Conditioning System

Company Reference: 

The ScaleNet anti-scale water conditioning system eliminates hard water scale with virtually no homeowner maintenance, no salt additives and no electricity. The system prevents destructive scale build-up on pipe, valves and other plumbing system components using template-assisted crystallization technology, which attracts hardness minerals and converts them into harmless particles that float freely through the system.

Filtration

Company Reference: 

The EF-3000 filter — rated at a 3,000-gal capacity — filters down to 0.5 µ and removes many substances commonly found in tap water, including lead and chlorine. The filter fits virtually anywhere in the household, providing homeowners with commercial-grade water filtration wherever it is needed without adding additional faucets. 

Soap

Company Reference: 

LanoSoft’s new line of personal and household soap products was reformulated to minimize impact on the environment and provide high performance. The products are made with natural ingredients and created especially for homes with softened water. 

Filter Cartridges

Company Reference: 

ULTRA-D filter cartridges offer maximum submicron depth filtration. Tested and proven, the media in these filters employs patented electro-adhesion technology comparable to UF membranes. The filters remove or reduce pathogens, heavy metals, and organic and inorganic chemicals. They are also ideal for protecting commercial RO membranes from premature fouling.

As somebody who has been around the block a few times with website rebuilds (and has the grey hair to prove it), let me offer some words of advice.
