What Sets A Portable Water Softener Apart From Conventional Water Softener Systems?

Basically, a portable water softener is a type of purification devices that delivers the same functionality as a stationary water softener (whole house water softener systems). In other words, they pretty much do the same thing, but the only difference is that portable device is usually made with a compact design so it can be easily be brought along wherever you want to go. Aside from that, probably the best feature that is so cool about these softeners is that it uses table salt for softening water! So no need to for bulky sacks of water softener salt every time you go on camping, road tripping, or fishing in the nearby river.
