Yeah, I just pulled the trigger on this. Was ready to install a softener to deal with the lime but wasn't excited about having to rip into my wall and splice into the plumbing...

Still going to need to remove some drywall to install this properly, but I can get on board with not having to buy salt. Not many review out there and my skeptical mind thinks this seems a little fishy but sometimes you gotta try new stuff.

  This is not a water softener it is a conditioner meaning in theory it only breaks up heavy metal compounds and/or calcium/phosphate minerals already dissolved in water. It does not remove those metals and minerals like a salt pellet based water softener so it is not going to make your detergents lather better or make your pipes any cleaner or your water heater last any longer. Plus this I a vey weak conditioner at 19 grams/gal you will see little or no difference when using this product.  IOW this is a 100% gimmick


Well, I am in need of a descaler as that is my real problem.  It's not horrible, but my showerheads do show signs of deposits over time and I have to clean them every few months with CLR to get them flowing again.   These devices do seem hokey and I thank you for your links.  I decided to give it a shot only because I knew I could return it to Home Depot and get my money back if upon further research it seemed even moreso.
