InLine Water Softener
Hard water is defined by the amount of disolved mineral content in your water. The average hardness of the water in your area is reported in you local annual water quality report. If you do not know the hardness in your area, your service provider can condust a simple test for you.
If you have hard water you should consider a water softener or descaler. Spots on your and limescale build up on fixtures is more than an annoyance. It causes water using appliances to work harder which requires more energy and shortens the life expectancy of those appliances. You may have also noticed that it takes more soap to lather up and more detergent to get your laundry clean.
A properly selected and sized system can ultimately save you money through reduced soap and detergent usage, energy efficiency, longer life for clothing and linens and long productive life for you waster using appliances. You should expect a minimum of three years and likely longer, before the resin media needs to be replaced. Salt or potassium will need to be added periodically as prescribed by your service professional. The variance in longevity is based on water consumption levels and the levels of impurities in your water supply.
- 12-volt operation uses less than $2 of electricity per year
- System software allows a lithium battery to maintain the time of day for up to 8 hours during power outages so all programmed settings and data are maintained
- Powerful, reliable and user-friendly electronics automatically monitor water treatment functions including:
- Days since last regeneration
- Gallons since last regeneration
- Maximum flow rate for the last seven days
- Current flow rate
- Total number of regenerations
- Noryl™ corrosion-resistant control valve body, internal parts and corrosion-proof tanks for a longer life; all internal components are lead-free
- Full-flow bypass valve is standard
Economical—• Reduction in soaps and detergents needed for equal results.
• Reduction in the cost of maintenance and replacement of pipes, water heater, and other appliances.
• Reduction in water bills because less water will be used for laundering and dish washing.
• Dishes will look less spotty from the mineral deposits from hard water.
• Less minerals helps clothes come cleaner nad stain come out easier so they last longer.
Health—• No spots reduces the need for harsh chemical cleaners.
• Softer water keeps skin and hair look healthy.
Environmental-• Quick lathering means good water conservation due to reduction in the amount of water being used.
• Reduction in the amount of wastewater being sent to your local wastewater treatment plant.
• Increasing the useful life of appliances means less metals being dumped in landfills.
Washing with 50% less detergent in cold, softened water is as effective for laundering whites as 100% detergent in hard hot water.
You can use half as much dishwashing detergent in the dishwater when water is softened and expect better results.
Stain removal performance is dramatically increased when soft water is used instead of hard water.
