Today there are many Portable Water Softeners for the RV’er to choose from. At the end of the day they all virtually do the same thing just some with salt others with potassium. They are pretty simple to hook up and use and store when not in use. A Water Softener does just as its name implies, it softens the water by removing the minerals that make it hard. Hard water leaves water spots and has minerals that ruin appliances such as coffee makers and washing machines. The minerals also build up in pipes, faucets and ice makers. Even your shower is affected by hard water, the soap does not lather up. Hard water also leaves scale build up on shower, tubs, shower/tub doors and sinks making it much harder to keep clean.
Portable RV Water Softeners are a great addition to improving your water quality.
They are very easy to use and maintain making them very practical for most RV’ers. They will need to be recharged from time to time depending on your water usage. Most RV Water Softeners use either table salt or potassium and both are readily available and convenient. I personally would prefer Table Salt, you can always swipe the salt shakers from Denny’s or IHop. Just kidding.
