Easy to install domestic water softener comes complete with easy to follow installation manual.
This Compact design water softener can easily cope with the most demanding of water systems and households.
The softener can produce around 1500 litres of water before it needs to clean it self.
How does a softener work?
All softeners work in basically the same way, the incoming water enters the softener through a tank of ion exchange resin. This resin then traps all the hard minerals that create lime scale soft water then enters your water system. Unfortunately this resin is unable to do this indefinitely and needs to clean itself. This cleaning process is called regeneration. During regeneration water is mixed with salt to create a brine solution this solution is then washed through the resin and the trapped minerals are flushed away. The resin is then able to continue cleaning the incoming water until it needs to perform its cleaning process again.
What does Timer control mean?
Our Timer control softeners perform regenerations based purely on the Time schedule ( requires connection to electrical supply via 3 pin plug and 24hr timer which is supplied.) Timer has an overide This gives you the flexibility to create extra regenerations when you use more water and less regenerations when you use less. Regeneration will normally take place at 2 am thus ensuring that water is unlikely to be used during a regeneration programme.
What happens if I use water during regeneration?
Some companies would have you believe that this would be a disaster this is very far from the truth. Should you happen to be up at 2am and maybe flush the toilet for example! The softener will supply hard water into the property. Our water softeners are able to treat an entire property of any existing scale build up within a few months. If you were to use water during a regeneration programme our softener will treat this water as soon as the regeneration is complete.
This machine is possibly the most cost effective unit available in the UK. It can easily cope with a household from 1 to 8 people. It can operate on any water system including mega flow type systems. It is durable. It can fit under a sink and it has a five-year warranty!
