Problem - Hardness Water that contains high levels of dissolved calcium or magnesium salts, or both, is described as being hard. It is desirable that domestic water supplies contain less than 100ppm (mg/L) hardness. The problems it causes - pipe scaling, water heater burnout, streaky glassware and difficulty in washing clothes can all be avoided by water softening. A softener removes the calcium and magnesium by means of an ion exchange bed through which the water passes. Eventually the exchange capacity of the bed is exhausted and it is then regenerated with brine solution, made up in a storage tank. Softeners are available in varying sizes to suit water consumption with several control options - time controlled automatic regeneration or the electronic control valve which regenerates based on the amount of water the softener has treated. Typically regeneration is required approximately weekly. Perhaps the most important benefit is to the life expectancy, and running costs, of your hot water system. The same scale that clouds your clean sink, builds up in your hot water system, coating the element and the insides of the pipes, tank, and boiler. The average hard water home builds 1/16 of scale per year, eventually the whole system becomes clogged and useless, in need of total replacement (how much will that cost?). Until then, you are paying to heat the scale, before heating the water. After five years you could be wasting as much as 70% of your fuel bill on heating scale.
Solution - An automatic Water Softener With soft water none of these horrors happen. Better still, with a softener, any system already suffering from hard water deposits will be naturally rejuvenated. Over a period of time the soft water will dissolve and wash away all the scale, ensuring all stays as clean and clear as new. It's never too late to save yourself money and worry. You wont see any difference in your water youll feel it. Easy on your skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Gentle on your hair, making it healthier and shinier. And not only soft on you, on your clothes as well. After washing they will be fresher and fluffier. What you will see is a difference in your shampoo and detergent bills. Theyll be smaller! Hard water is chemically opposed to the good lather you want whenever you use soap or detergent. To overcome this, you use a lot more - up to twice as much. With soft water the lather comes easily and stays longer. You will also see a difference in the time you spend cleaning baths, sinks and taps. Hard water is hard work! Soft water is scale free, so you will save time on cleaning and money on materials.
Control Valves Whole House Water Treatment Systems We have a range of these units, with completely automatic control valves. The control valve is fitted onto a round FRP tank (either 10x 54 high or 12 x 52 high) filled with ion exchange resin to soften the water and comply with the NZ Drinking Water Standards. The system is installed either between the well pump and a water storage tank or directly to the house. A pressure pump then delivers the softened water for the house or business.
Water Softener capacities These larger capacity water softeners are best used for larger households up to small commercial applications The cabinet units (Caribbean and Windsor) are most suitable for apartments and small households.
Caribbean 3 The Caribbean features a blow molded combination brine and softener cabinet with an injection molded salt lid and dust cover for exceptional appearance and strength. The Caribbean Cabinet unit accommodates a mineral tank 10 x 35 high. Injection molded dust cover protects valve and controls. Patented baffle plate protects controls from corrosive salt fumes. Removable upper section provides easy access to controls and mineral tank. Blow molded brine compartment resists corrosive salts for long dependable service. Detachable salt lid provides access to brine compartment without removing the cover.
Windsor HI-Profile The Windsor HI-Profile (HP) series cabinets feature a blow molded cabinet and a one piece injection molded cover designed to accommodate the control valve. The unique design makes the Windsor HP series easy to assemble. The large salt port opening allows easy filling of coarse salt. The blow molded salt port lid has an integrated handle for a sure grip.
18 Round Brine Tanks Round blow molded 18 brine tanks can be used in larger residential and light commercial applications. Durable materials in plastic provide trouble free performance. Ultraviolet inhibitors (UVI) are now standard in all tanks except black, which has a natural resistance to the suns rays. Advantages: Strong construction with secure lid Blow molded from high density polyethylene to give years of trouble free service. Injection molded grid promotes uniform brining and reduced salt bridging.
15x17 Series Brine Tank Molded of high density polyethylene, the 15 x 17 tank is available with an attractive blue molded handle cover. Ultraviolet inhibitors (UVI) are standard in all tanks. Advantages: Strong and compact. Injection molded grid system promotes consistent brining and reduces salt bridging.
