A Dual Tank, Whole House Water Softener and Acid Neutralizer System with a brine tank that can use traditional salt (sodium) or potassium for regeneration. Uses Fleck control valve for automatic backwash to improve water softener's performance.
Water is hard when it contains minerals like magnesium and calcium. You may see staining on your sinks, tubs, showers, and clothing. Water softening means expanding the life span of household machine, such as laundry machines, and the life span of pipelines. Keeps skin and hair healthy looking Dishes are cleaner, with less soap and hard water spotting. Tubs, showers, and sinks are easier to clean, thanks to reduced hard water build-up. Clothes are softer, cleaner, brighter, and last longer.
Water Softener keeps all fixtures from scaling and corrosion. Saves time, money and energy. Towels washed in water softened by Crystal Quest water softeners need 1/3 less detergent and come out 45% whiter. To calculate your system size, test your water to find hardness in grains or PPM - parts per million (divide parts per million by 17.1 to get grains), then divide capacity of the system in grains (48,000 or 60,000) by your hardness level to get gallons of water before a system regeneration will be required. Ideally, you want minimum of 2-3 days before each regeneration.
Water Softener and Acid Neutralizer System Design
Traditional Water Softener is designed to soften and balance drinking water in your home or business. Resulting water should be withing neutral, 7 pH (plus or minus) range. Water travels through 4 stages:
Stage 1, water flows through a 20" sediment cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand and dirt. Also extends the life of water softeners and water filters, and prevents damage to control valves.
, water flows through an ion exchange mineral tank and brine water conditioner that contains cation resin media
Stages 3: water flows through a acid neutralizer tank with a pH enhancing media.
Stage 4: water flows through a 20" solid carbon cartridge for removing volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC's), insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents.
Hard water causes a higher risk of lime scale deposits in household water systems.
Due to this lime scale build-up, pipes are blocked and the efficiency of hot boilers and tanks is reduced. This increases the cost of domestic water heating by about fifteen to twenty percent. Another negative effect of lime scale is that it has damaging effects on household machinery, such as laundry machines. It also contributes to the improved working, and longer lifespan of solar heating systems, air conditioning units and many other water-based applications. Water is softened or conditioned by replacing hard ions like magnesium and calcium with softer sodium or potassium ions.
Water Softener must be regenerated regularly, renewing their ability to remove hardness from water.
Time-initiated or solid state softeners regenerate at a fixed time when their softening capacity is predicted to be low. Demand-initiated softeners regenerate automatically when they sense their capacity is low.
Deliver trouble free operation for many years with reliable service.
