iSpring ED2000 Whole House Electronic Descaler Review (2020)

iSpring ED2000 Whole House Electronic Descaler Review

🧾 Overview

iSpring ED2000 Whole House Electronic Descaler is a salt-free water conditioner designed for whole home use. It can solve hard water problems without the need for salt or maintenance, and retains the healthy minerals in your water.

Being small and compact in design, the iSpring ED2000 doesn’t need a lot of space for installation. It doesn’t need any major plumbing to install – it simply fits around your main water pipe and gets to work immediately.

If you’re conscious about the environment, the iSpring conditioner is a good option for you. It doesn’t waste water, regenerate, or use salt to run, while producing the same scale-free benefits as a salt-based softener.

The iSping ED2000 works by creating an electromagnetic waveform around a water pipe, which increases water solubility. This ultimately dissolves existing scale deposits and removes them from the water system.

💡 Features

  • Two thin coils, which wrap around the main water pipe.
  • Connecting lines for plugging into a power source.
  • Free lifetime technical support and money-back guarantee for twelve months.

🚦 Performance

The iSping ED2000 is a conditioner and it doesn’t rely on salt refills to work. In fact, this iSpring system’s performance is never impaired or effected by user-controlled factors, like tank cleanliness, salt levels or resin quality, because none of these things are needed.

You’ll get a much more consistent performance out of the iSping ED2000, because the magnets will continue to produce the same electromagnetic waves that condition water no matter what.

In terms of efficiency, you can expect the iSping ED2000 to be the eco-friendlier, money-saving alternative to a salt based softener.

You won’t need to stock up on salt, nor will the system waste any water, because it doesn’t have a tank and it doesn’t need to regenerate.

It works well with household water under 25 grains of hardness. Anything above that, and you’re recommended by the manufacturers themselves to use the iSping ED2000 with a traditional softener, which is a bit of a drawback if you wanted to avoid salt-based softening entirely.

The iSping ED2000 is useful in that you can use it on an iron pipe, which you generally can’t with other electronic descalers. Iron pipes aren’t common any more, but you may find them in older homes.

🔧 Installation & Maintenance

Being fairly slim and compact in design, you’ll be able to install the iSping ED2000 in small spaces. There’s no tank or heavy salt bags to worry about, so a person of any age or physical ability will be able to handle long-term maintenance.

Installation itself doesn’t require any major plumbing. You won’t need to cut into your pipes to slot in the iSping ED2000, as the coil actually wraps around the outside of the pipe, while the main body sits on top. You can also install the system vertically if that offers a more space-saving alternative for you.

You’ll find installation instructions in written form and online for support. You can also contact the manufacturer with any questions you have as a customer once you’ve purchased the system.

Keep in mind that as an electromagnetic conditioner, the iSping ED2000 doesn’t work well on water that contains iron. You’ll need to buy a separate pre-filter to remove iron from water before it flows through the system.

📝 System Info

The iSping ED2000 works like a standard electromagnetic water conditioner, but has a few benefits that make it stand out from the rest. Being able to use the system on iron pipes is a big plus point. It also doesn’t require the long-term maintenance of a standard softener.

Using an electromagnetic wave to treat the water, the iSping ED2000 alters the composition of hardness causing minerals in the water, greatly reducing the build-up of calcium and magnesium in your plumbing and appliances without affecting the chemistry of the water.

The minerals that are beneficial in tap water are retained.

When using the iSping ED2000, you should experience a noticeable improvement in your home. While water won’t take on a slimy texture that is often associated with traditional softeners, it’ll lather better with soap, and won’t leave limescale deposits all over your appliances.

The results might not be the most impressive you’ll come across, but the iSping ED2000 does the job.

  • No plumbing required for setup.
  • Water retains a more natural feel.
