Is it as good as a water softener?

Aqua-Rex reduces scaling like a softener but it also gets rid of the old scale in the home which a softener won’t do. It partially softens hot water so you use less soap and detergents but you don’t get that slippery feel to the water from the sodium dumped in by a softener. It can deliver the same benefits as a conventional water softener, and there’s no salt to haul!
