  • The Revolutionary Salt-Less Water Conditioner Alternative
    The FUTURA salt-free, anti-scale water conditioner is a new advancement in water treatment technology that conditions water without the use of salt or corrosive chemicals. This system uses an advanced ceramic media that effectively attracts and neutralizes hard water properties without the need for regeneration, backwashing, or electricity. When water comes into contact with the catalytic surface of the media, hard water agents calcium (CaCO3) and magnesium become attached to the ceramic granules and are instantly converted into a scale resistant crystalline form. These crystals are harmless, neutral, heat resistant, and completely stable and will not attach to any surfaces like your pipes and heaters to cause lime deposits. When the crystals reach a size in the range of nano-meters (one billionth the size of a meter) they detach and are carried away by the water flow. These nano-crystals are relatively insoluble, effectively isolating hardness up to 25 grains/gal. (420 mg/L) from the water chemistry.
    FUTURA's catalytic granules are non-sacrificial and are not consumed in the conversion process, thus resulting in its exceptional long life and durability. In effect, these systems provide many benefits such as reduced soap use, scale reduction, and cleaner clothes-without the troublesome maintenance, costs and pollution of salt-based water Conditioners.
  • America's Most Durable & Maintenance-Free Water Conditioner
    • No Salt or Corrosive Chemicals Needed
      You can finally treat hard water scale without the salt. (or any other chemicals!) Perfect for places (states of CA, CT, TX) where salt-based Conditioners are banned or undesired.
    • No Backwashing or Regeneration
      No backwashing means no salty drained water, no regeneration, and no drain to install. 100% environmentally friendly.
    • Scale Reduction and Prevention
      Prolongs the lifespan of pipes and home appliances from clogging with calcium carbonate. Also reduces the existing scale that's already in your house. Much easier clean ups of hard water spotting on cars, windows, and dishes.
    • Cost efficient
      Save $100-$200 per year just on salt refill costs when compared to traditional Conditioners. No electricity required means no extra energy expenses. Plus, you can save energy expenses due to the increased efficiency of your hot water heater.
    • Simple Installation
      Compact single tank system, fits anywhere with ease. Simply connect to the main supply line of your house. Pipe in, pipe out. No time-consuming programmable controls to set and understand.
    • Maintenance Free
      Virtually no maintenance, no upkeep costs. This is a truly trouble-free "set it and forget" type of system.
    • Known Health Benefits
      Traditional ion exchange Conditioners produce salty water which contain high sodium content. Eliminating sodium intake can reduce health risks and improve your cardiovascular system.
    • Worry free
      Comes with a 10 year limited warranty. Receive highest quality products, expert support, lowest price and warranty directly from a first-rate manufacturer.
  • Trusted Quality In APEC's Anti-Scale Water Conditioner
    APEC water systems are designed for performance, durability and reliability. We are one of the very few manufacturers who still insist on using premium components made in the United States. Our durable tank, housing, and valves can withstand extreme pH and pressure changes without leaking or bursting. This state of the art Salt-Free System does not require media backwash or regeneration and is maintenance free for many years. The Futura's catalytic granules are environmentally friendly- they do not add harmful sodium/salts into your water, while giving you cleaner, healthier, scale reduced water.
    For over 20 years, APEC has been the leading manufacturer of high performance water systems. Our systems are built to meet the most demanding applications in water treatment-- from drinking water for homes, healthcare facilities, research labs to scale free water for factories. Our durable FUTURA water conditioning systems last for decades delivering many years of quality water enjoyment and convenience to their owners.
  • FUTURA Shipping Method
    Our FUTURA systems are shipped in high quality double walled boxes with side cushions for extra protection. Since our systems are routinely shipped all over the world, we feel it is vital that the packaging be of top quality and no expense has been spared to ensure your system arrives safely in factory fresh condition.
  • Tips On Choosing A System
    To assure your highest satisfaction, please choose the right size (gpm) of the FUTURA system that at least matches your household peak demand flow rate. For example, if the most water you will use is to take a shower while doing your laundry and running the dishwasher simultaneously, then your peak demand will be (3+3+3=9) 9 gpm. This means our smallest FUTURA system, rated at 10 gpm, is sufficient for you.
