Compare Cascadian PolyHalt® Ion Bond to NuvoH2O Citrus Softeners

When we think about Cascadian ion bond vs. NuvoH2O citrus salt free softeners the first things that come to mind are that both are:

  • Pioneers in the salt free water softener market
  • Cartridge based
  • Simpler, smaller sized, more eco-friendly and lower cost compared to salt-based softeners
  • Manufactured in the western U.S. with high quality components
  • Using natural products and processes
  • Softeners that don’t make the water feel slippery or slimy
  • Able to reduce existing mineral deposits
  • Certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 Drinking Water Treatment Units – Aesthetic Effects
  • Available with simple filter replacement programs

After these few items the similarities pretty much disappear.

    • Chlorine
    • Hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg) odor
    • UV (ultraviolet) disinfection systems

    • Treatment of red/orange and brown/black stains from iron and manganese
    • Reducing blue/green staining from low pH or aggressive waters
    • Providing corrosion protection for plumbing and appliances from low pH or aggressive waters
    • Low pH or acidic water

    • Carbon filtration for treatment of both hardness and chlorine taste and odor (see ICS-TP) or
    • 5 micron filtration for reduction of sediment and particles or removal of colored iron and manganese (see ICS-SP)
    • A dual housing system on a single easy to plumb bracket can have all three, softener, sediment and chlorine filtration (see ICS-STP)
  • All Cascadian whole home systems have an integrated housing drain for easier and safer filter changes
  • Cascadian cartridge based softener and filter systems are available for larger commercial, agricultural and industrial applications to 180 gallons per minute per system
  • Ion bond filters last 2 times as long as citrus filters reducing time and money required to maintain your water treatment
  • PolyHalt is certified to NSF/ANSI/CAN 60 Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals – Health Effects – Product function; Corrosion & Scale Control
  • Does not lower the pH of water causing acid conditions which can cause problems with plumbing and appliances
