How It Works & What's Included:

Operation of the Softener
Hard water contains dissolved minerals in the form of Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), Iron (Fe), Copper (Cu), & Zinc (Zn). Reduction of these contaminants is accomplished by softening the water through an ion-exchange process. As water flows through the mineral tank, the dissolved minerals become attached onto and inside the resin. Over a period of time the resin will become saturated with contaminants, and the softener will require regeneration using a sodium or potassium brine solution.

Softening Media – AquaPro 500-1 Hybrid
The exchange media is a high quality, FDA certified, commercial-grade strong acid (Cation) Functional Matrix resin with a very high whole bead count and no color throw. It is physically hard and is moderately chlorine resistant. The media combines high operating capacity with excellent chemical and physical stability for a long, dependable life.

Regeneration of the system is initiated by a simplified digital controller, which electronically meters softened water flow and makes decisions to regenerate based on water consumption and program settings. Salt dosage is controlled differentially to maximize the softener’s efficiency.

These softener models are controlled electronically. A fully programmable microprocessor controls Tank Fill, Percolation, Ion Exchange, Backwash, Rapid Rinse, and Return-To-Service cycles.

Control Valve
A hydraulically balanced and coated piston slides effortlessly through seals & spacers. All parts in the waterway are either coated brass or composite Noryl® materials to ensure a long and reliable service life.

Resin Tank
All softener models feature a non-corrosive fiberglass tank with a one-piece thermoplastic inner liner. The tank has a maximum working pressure of 90 psi and a working temperature up to 120°F. The tank is approved by NSF, UL, and the FDA. It also meets WQA Standard S-100. All fiberglass tanks carry a limited lifetime warranty.

Brine Tank
A high capacity brine tank is included as part of this system. The brine tank is a combination of a brine maker and salt storage vessel and is made of tough, high-density polyethylene. Larger tanks are available for extra salt storage capacity, if required.

Brine System
Brine refill is automatically controlled by the computer to provide the exact amount of brine needed for each regeneration. The brine system has a float and safety valve shut-off, which minimizes the chance of overflowing the brine tank. All units are equipped with an air check.

ProGuard & ProGuard Plus
A ProGuard reservoir is included with this system to ensure peak performance, maximize efficiency, and provide the highest level of protection from inorganic metals and minerals.
