Residential Water Softeners and Filters

"Hard" water is not considered unhealthy; however, hard water problems end up costing you money through increased soap usage,
reliance on water softening prodducts and shorter life for appliances due to scale build-up in pipes and other factors.

To correct water hardness, we offer a wide range of water conditioning systems, designed to improve water quality throughout your entire household.

Model selection is typically based on water hardness, water usage, water source, and other factors.

Two Equipment Types : Water softeners are available in two configurations, including:

Single Tank : Single tank systems include one tank for the softening resin, a brine tank for salt, used to regenerate the softening resin and our mtered control valve.

Dual Tank : Dual tank systems come with an additional tank with activated carbon for pre-treatment, which removew chlorine, tastes and odors in municipal water applications and extend the life of the softening resin.

Features and Benefits
- Spot-free glassware and dishes
- No mineral deposits on bathtubs and shower stalls.
- Brighter, softer laundry
- Less reliance on water softening products
- Dramatic reduction in soap usage.
- Manageable hair because shampoo works better.
- Pipes remain free of calcium scale build-up
- Extended life of appliances and reduced energy costs because scale is virtually eliminated
- Spot-free car wish (if softened water is used)
As water works its way through the ground, it picks up minerals by dissolving limestone, causing water hardness.
Water may also come into contact with Iron, Manganese, Arsenic and other contaminants, which cause additional water treatment problems.
The chart below lists typical whole house water quality problems and indicates which equipment effectively corrects any problems you may have in your home.
Water Quality Problems Symptoms Recommended Equipment.
Hardness Mineral deposits on dishes and glassware; stiff, dingy laundry; high soap usage and need for fabric softeners; dry, itchy skin and scalp; unmanageable hair; extra work to remove soap curd on bathtubs and shower stalls; high energy costs due to scale build-up in pipes and on appliances. Water Softener.
Chlorine, fould odors and tastes Chlorine taste; foul odors; damage to hair; itchy skin. Backwashing filter using activated carbon.
Iron and Manganese Unpleasant metallic tastes; rust particles; staining on plumbing fixtures; red water; odors. Iron filter.
Turbidity Cloudy water; sediment, sand, silt and rust particles Media filter.
Acidic water (low pH) Green stains on bathroom sinks and other porcelain surfaces; blue green water. (Acidic water may cause corrosion of pipes & plumbing fixtures.) Acid neutralizer using Calcite.
Tannin Brownish, tea coored water; musty odors. Tannin filter.
Arsenic A naturally occurring element found in ground water, Arsenic is a carcinogen at high concentrations, and the EPA reports Arsenic may cause adverse health effects in low concentrations. Testing for Arsenic is highly recommended. Arsenic Reduction System.
