Softening your water is very important to ensure that your appliances function correctly and have a long lifespan. You may have noticed a white buildup on your water-using appliances and on your faucets; it happens due to the presence of carbon, magnesium, and sulfates. Water supply, which has a large proportion of such elements, is known as hard water.
The traditional way to deal with hard water is to use water softener salts. Nuvo water conditioner does it without salts. In this review, we are going to discuss all the features of Nuvo water softener and how it can help you get rid of scale on your appliances.

How does NuvoH20 DPHB Water Conditioner Work?
The Nuvo water conditioner works on the scientific process of chelation to keep the scale causing elements like magnesium and calcium to remain soluble in the water. The resulting water is soft and does not cause any damage to your health and the working of your valuable appliances.
The water produced after passing through Novu conditioner is safe for drinking, bathing, washing your eatables, using in appliances like coffee and tea kettles, washing machines, and dishwashers. It is also very healthy for your plants and pets. Please keep in mind that it will only condition the water; it will not remove any of the impurities in the water, heavy metals, and other harmful elements.
The system uses a single cartridge to provide you with soft water instead of using a water softener salt. The cartridge consists of materials that stop the water from becoming hard and provide you with ultimate protection from the harmful effects of hard water. The cartridge is almost double the size of the usual filters available in the market. It increases the surface contact area and provides you with a better flow rate and effective conditioning of your water.
Installing the water conditioner is an easy thing to do. All the equipment you need come included in the box. You have to select the appropriate location, make sure it is away from sunlight; otherwise, your warranty will be void. The inlets and outlets are of 1 inch in diameter. Remember to check the size of your pipes to avoid any hassle during installation. The conditioner comes with a bypass valve, which helps during the replacement of your cartridge.
NuvoH20 DPHB water conditioner is a high-end price product. First time purchase may be a bit difficult in your pocket if you are running a tight budget. The reasons behind the price hike are the innovative design, small space it occupies, freedom from slat, and resin tanks.
You do not contribute to environmental damage while using Nuvo as it does not release any sodium in the environment. All these features increase the making cost. The cartridge is economically priced, and you need to change it after 6-8 months. One cartridge can last for around 35,000 gallons of water, as claimed by the users, despite the stated claim of 20,000 by the manufacturers.
You get a lifetime warranty on all the components of the water conditioner. All you have to do is to install it under the shade and away from direct sunlight, preferably inside your house, otherwise you will not be able to make any claims.
Pros and Cons

- Excellent flow rate
- Take less space

Our Opinion and Verdict
No doubt, this product looks innovative, takes up less space, plays its part in environmental conservation, but do not expect a marvelous outcome from it. It is just above the average water conditioner. We rate it at 7.5 out of 10. The dip in the rating is due to its high price, ability to only work with municipal water, and failure to remove the already deposited scale.
