When water contains a significant amount of CALCIUM and MAGNESIUM* SCALE, it is called hard water. Hard water is known to clog pipes and impede soap and detergent dissolving in water. Water softening is a technique that removes the calcium and magnesium ions that cause the water to be hard. Iron* and manganese ions may also be removed during softening.
Filtec domestic & light commercial water softeners are available in a variety of capacities. The size will depend on water usage and degree of total hardness of the water supply.
They are extremely easy to operate — just set the controller initially and then replenish the salt in the brine tank only as required. No user adjustments are needed as the Filtec controller adjusts to accommodate changing water usage automatically. And it won’t regenerate too early or too late, saving on both salt and water. Plus with a low maintenance, high reliability softener head you’ll find you have minimal service worries.
* A FILTEC softener will control iron and manganese in many applications – a water analysis will be required to ensure satisfactory operation. Resin cleaning may be required.
