    The Revolutionary Salt-Less Water Softener Alternative

    Crystaline forum under a microscope

    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 softeners.

    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 softeners 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 softeners. 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

    Known Health Benefits

    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.

    Typical Flow Rates for a single fixture, in Gallons per Minute (gpm)

    Fixture Type Flow Rates (in gpm)
    Lavatory 0.8-1.5
    Kitchen Sink 1.0-1.5
    Shower 1.5-3.0
    Bathtub 2.0-4.0
    Laundry 2.5-3.0
    Dishwasher 2.0-3.0

    NOTE: If you have untreated well water that contains iron or sulfur odor, be sure to pre-treat with one of our whole house iron filter. We suggest installing the unit at room temperature if repeated freeze-thaw cycles occurs.

Product's Review
    1. Worked well on my terrible water! Review by Amy
      Satisfaction

      I just replaced the 20” prefilter that came with my Futura system and it is dark brown! Granted it’s about 1.5 years old so I didn’t follow the yearly schedule, but I still can’t believe my water is this bad. The filter was pure white when I installed it but at least I know it is working now. Thanks APEC for including this very necessary filter! (Posted on 5/10/2014)

    2. High quality system Review by David
      Satisfaction

      Having installed the Futura, I must say that I am very impressed with the look and build of these systems. The stainless steel outer shell is really shiny and looks fantastic in my garage. I take some time to admire it every day before driving off to work. The smaller blue filter is also very sturdy and well built, and you can tell it should also last many years. Best of all, the water quality has been great! I’ve gotten a few compliments and curious inquires from neighbors which I sent your way. Thanks and your welcome APEC! (Posted on 4/15/2014)

    3. Less white scale. Review by Amiee Z
      Satisfaction

      I have had my Futura 10 system for about 6 months now and I do notice less white scale buildup in my sinks and shower. Also the ugly white water lines that build up at the top of my 30 gallon fish tank are noticeable less and I can clean it much easier. Since you were so kind to include a free carbon filter, I can also add my tap water directly to the tank without worrying about toxic chlorine hurting my fish. Overall I’m very happy with the water quality and my guppies are too! (Posted on 2/13/2014)

    4. Love my Futura system!!! Review by Jazz
      Satisfaction

      Didn't know anything about water softeners until visiting APEC's website. Studied information for both salt and no salt softener and feel comfortable using no salt for health reasons and no drain water. After installing the system, it has greatly reduced the white spots which I absolutely hated to clean every week. Love my Futura system!!! (Posted on 2/7/2014)

    5. Water is so much better than before! Review by Dan
      Satisfaction

      I have one of these installed, and it works!

      My long stubborn toilet rings are gone!
      Things are much easier to clean, glasses are almost spotless compare to the unbearable water spots before.

      Thank you for a fine and maintenance-free product for a lazy/ busy person like me ! :-) (Posted on 1/25/2014)

    6. Works great, no complaints Review by Bernard
      Satisfaction

      The FUTURA-10 system has been great from day one. I could actually tell the difference in the water right away as it removed the bad odors and they haven’t come back. The water has also been much better for my skin and has cleared up some annoying skin rashes. The system just sits in the corner with no need for fuss or attention, just works. What could be better than that? (Posted on 12/7/2013)

    7. Skin is softer! Review by Lucy S.
      Satisfaction

      This is an amazing product, I was not expecting a lot from this product due to that it is still not exactly the same as a softener I think. But the first day that I installed it I noticed a difference during my showers.

      I stepped out of the shower feeling refreshed, skin is soft and not so tight and dry as before, so I don't need to immediately put on lots of lotions like before; plus my hair is so soft and slippery.

      Even though they did not advertise these nice effects, but I am getting them! What a plesant surprise.
      Good job APEC! (Posted on 8/21/2013)

    8. Fine product Review by Owen
      Satisfaction

      This product arrived on time, is what they say, packaged really well, and worked like it should. No complaints. (Posted on 6/19/2013)

    9. Really worth it's price Review by BB
      Satisfaction

      I have reviewed many options for buying a whole house water softener. Have come down to 2 types, the traditional and the salt-free type, which is a recent technology development according to my research.

      I decided to let go the other types like the electro-magnetic type etc... for I don't want my house to constantly emit magnetic waves becuase it can cause brain and other health issues.

      Eventually I let go the salt type water softener due to the salty water issues (yes I don't want my water in the whole house taste salty) and the constant maintenance issues, so I was bold enough to try APEC's Futura. And I still thank myself now for being bold enough to try the new technology- for it WORKS!

      Dishes and glasses and almost spotless, shower heads are much cleaner than before, and the free whole house carbon filter system was such a bonus that it makes this softener essentially a great " whole house filtration and softening solution" What a bargain! I see other places selling similar deals at $3k range. Needless to say I am pleased. (Posted on 2/7/2012)

    10. Filter did a good job. Review by Davis Lee
      Satisfaction

      I had purchased the APEC RO and APEC Futura-10 whole house filter system back in Nov. 2009. After 15 months of use, I just replaced the RO filters a few days ago. To my surprise, the filters are fairly clean! The first filter had shown a little brownish color of dirt trapped inside and both carbon are about the same color. I guess the Futura system and the add-on whole house filter really did a good job cleaning most of the dirt. (Posted on 4/18/2011)

    11. True customer service Review by Christian Lee
      Satisfaction

      I purchased the RO-45 and a Futura 10 Softener. The promo was nice with the whole house filter that came with the Futura 10. I initially had a problem with getting a water tight seal with the whole house filter (not sure if it was the gasket, the cover, or both), but APEC was great about sending me a replacement cover and gasket with overnight shipping. Now mind you that this was part of a "free" gift promo with the Futura 10. I'm sure other companies would not have been so excellent with their service. Free or not they clearly stand by their products. That's a sign of true customer service. As for the water, I'm noticing less mineral like substance on the surface of my tub as well as my dishes. Also, the water from the RO tastes great and has about the same particle level as Poland Spring bottled water according to the little tester they sent along with the RO. I have to say that so far I am very impressed. If all goes well in the next several months I will definitely pass along referrals to all my friends and neighbors. Thanks APEC. (Posted on 3/3/2008)
