The Water Problem Solver

As you can imagine, the list of water problems that people come to us with is endless, not only in Australia, but also worldwide.

They are from people who had one thing in common; they were looking for a simple and economical way to improve their water supply.

The Care-Free Conditioner proved to be the answer.

As the product name suggests, Care-Free is 'care free'. This means, you have no messy chemicals, cartridges or salt to worry about and you'll be happy to know that it requires minimal attention.

There's a size to suit your application, whether it's for your Home, Farm or Industry.

Established 1980

Care-Free Conditioners Australia was pioneered by Bob Uden in 1980.

Bob, a plumber by trade, began selling water conditioners to farmers out of the back of his panel van.

From these modest beginnings the Care-Free company grew throughout Australia and today exports to several overseas countries.

Along the way, improvements and modifications have been made to the conditioners, which have resulted in several patents.

Patented Technology

The Care-Free Water Conditioner is patented in Australia, the USA and India, and has several patents pending in other countries.

In Australia, Care-Free has been also been granted a Soil Desalination Patent for its performance in lowering salinity in the soil.

Australian Made

Care-Free Conditioners is proudly 100% Australian made and owned.

It always has been. And always will be.

Guarantee & Warranty
