A natural water softener to soften hard water that can be used in industries, households, agriculture and lake cleaning.

E-Water Harmoniser (EWH) is a simple solution for all hard water related problems with zero water wastage and zero maintenance once installed. It has umpteen benefits for domestic, industrial as well as agricultural purposes. It does not require any salts, chemicals, magnets or electricity. It has multiple benefits including complete stoppage of hard scaling and reversal of existing scaling on taps, pipes, geysers and solar panels. The improved life of the membranes within the RO plant completely mitigates the use of salts within the RO plant or acids to clean the overhead tanks and sumps.

We r getting good water from it. But around the casing also water is there in well. After reading questions and answers I am worried that this kind of arrangement will polute ground water.
