Why do I need to treat my
To provide clean, soft, great tasting water in your home requires the removal of chlorine and dissolved
Chlorine is injected into the water supply at municipal water treatment facilities to remove biological
contamination prior to distribution. While this is an effective method of creating potable water, the residual chlorine can
create an objectionable odor and taste in the water supply.
Dissolved minerals such as calcium (lime) and magnesium are
commonly present in municipally supplied water causing what is referred to as "hard water." Hard water is not a
health hazard, but dealing with hard water in the home can be a nuisance by leaving a film of these minerals on whatever it
comes in contact with.
These water problems can be effectively resolved using filtration systems designed specifically
for the task. These filters are called water softeners, water conditioners or whole house filtration systems.
What can a Soft Water Filtration System do for me?
The Soft Water Filtration
System uses a two-stage tank to effectively address the chlorine and minerals present in the water supply to your home.
first stage is the Activated Carbon Filtration:
- Removes chlorine and all chlorine by-products (THC's) formed during the disinfection process of
- Removes suspended solids and iron from
- Removes up to 98.7% of solvents, gasoline,
pesticides, trihalomethanes and radon.
- Produces clean,
clear, great tasting water and eliminates odors. Keeps natural flavor of foods, coffee and tea by reducing unwanted minerals
The second stage is the Soft Water Filtration:
- Eliminates the soap that clings to your laundry, makes clothes softer,
cleaner and brighter.
- Helps keep your hair and skin
- Eliminate hard water stains and water spots
on tubs, sinks and shower glass.
- Stops water spots
on dishes and glassware.
- Saves money on detergents
and laundry additives while preventing 'lime scale' in your plumbing, water heater, laundry equipment and dishwasher.
does the Soft Water Filtration System work?
The activated carbon and softening resin contained in the tank removes
the chlorine, calcium, magnesium or "hardness" from the water as the water is passed through it. Once the carbon/resin
becomes saturated with these minerals, the system uses an automatic regeneration to clean itself. A brine solution stored
in a separate tank is injected into the resin tank to flush and clean the resin. After the carbon and resin are cleaned, the
system flushes the brine solution out of the tank and returns the unit to service. The regeneration system is automated with
an electric timer that regenerates the system during the night (1AM) on a regular schedule as needed.
