Santa Clarita Water Softeners Ban - Alternative Water Vendors & Suppliers

Water Bottle Contaminants

CALIFORNIA - As of January 1, 2009, salt-based water softeners officially became illegal in Santa Clarita, California. Other communities affected by this ordinance include Saugus, Valencia, Newhall, Castaic, Canyon Country, Stevenson Ranch, Fair Oaks Ranch, Bouquet Canyon, Mint Canyon, and Forrest Park. Communities that are served by septic tanks instead of the public sewer systems are not affected by this ordinance.

Alternative Solutions
What can you do if you don't want to suffer with the hard water that is present in Valencia? There are two options available.

  • Use one of the exchange tank services, where they place a tank in your garage and exchange it out monthly for proper salt disposal.
  • Contact a salt-free water system vendor and purchase a catalytic water conditioner which reduces scale without the use of harmful salt and chemicals.

Salt-Free Water Softeners
No Salt, No Mess, No Scale, No Problem.

Take the Rebate and Run
Up to $2,000 for your Automatic Water Softener. The Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District (Sanitation District) offers an automatic water softener rebate program. If you have an automatic water softener, you can get a rebate for the reasonable value of the unit-from $206 up to $2,000-and free removal by a pre-selected licensed plumber.

Applying for the rebate is simple: Submit the one page rebate application to the Sanitation District (forms can be obtained by clicking on the Rebate Application Form link above). After receiving your authorization to proceed, which will identify your rebate amount, schedule an appointment with a plumber on the list that accompanies the letter. Watch the mail for your check.
