Prevents Hard Water Scaling

Reduce scale buildup by up to 95% (when compared to no treatment at all). Protect the life of your water appliances, including ice makers, dishwashers, coffee makers and more, by preventing hard water scale buildup.

Removes Existing Scale Buildup

If scaling has already formed in pipes or water appliances, the SaltfreeMAX will also help de-scale existing buildup, improving the water flowing through your home and prolonging the lifespan of appliances.

How it Works

  • Untreated water flows through an optional carbon pre-filter for improved taste, odor and chlorine removal, and protection of the SaltfreeMAX media.
  • Water flows down through tank center tube.
  • Water flows up through fluidized SaltfreeMAX media that causes calcium and magnesium (hardness ions) to form into nano-crystals.
  • Once bound in nano-crystals, these hardness minerals can’t scale or attach to anything in the home.
  • Scale-free water enters your home, preserving fixtures and appliances, while also saving water and energy. The system uses no electricity, regeneration chemicals, or regeneration water.

Get To Know Your System

The SaltfreeMAX is designed to be virtually maintenance free. There is no salt to replenish or routine maintenance to schedule. The SaltfreeMAX™ is not a water softener – Low or phosphate-free cleaning products are recommended to achieve optimum results. Modern surfactant or detergent based liquid soaps are preferred over old-fashioned caustic solid soaps. If your dishwasher is severely coated with scale at the time of installation, we recommend that you purchase a product like Jet-Dry® dishwasher cleaner to accelerate the cleaning. After this initial cleaning, the SaltfreeMAX™ should keep it clean. We also recommend that you drain your water heater tank. This should be done 30 to 60 days after SaltfreeMAX™ is installed, and again in one year. This is a good practice that can dramatically increase the life of your water heating appliance. The SaltfreeMAX™ will help keep the tank and heating elements free of scale and operating at peak efficiency. Please follow the manufacturer’s instructions when draining the water heater tank!


During the first 30-90 days: Faucet aerators and drains may plug occasionally as old scale is removed from your existing plumbing system and water heater. You may also see milky water while the descaling is taking place. This is simply an increase in the calcium in the water because SaltfreeMAX™ is removing old scale deposits from your pipes. The SaltfreeMAX™ media is an exhaustive media and will need to be replaced every 3-5 years based on the hardness level of the water supply. In order to check if your media needs to be replaced, WaterTech offers a simple inexpensive test that indicates whether the system is functioning properly or not. Contact your local Authorized WaterTech Dealer for more information. BACK TO TOP
