(Point of Entry P.O.E/Water Softeners)
|Hard Water in homes is softened by a process called ion exchange. It takes place in media beds of water softeners, where the Calcium and Magnesium ions of hard water are exchanged for Sodium ions of media (resins) beds. Besides providing softened water, ion exchange process has the advantage of reducing sediment, iron, manganese, barium, and radium levels in the water as well. Media beds of water softeners are cleaned and regenerated either with “Timer Control Valves” on pre-set times or as per actual regeneration requirement using “On Demand Control Valves”. Regeneration of resins is normally done with NaCl2 (salt) solution. Regeneration system comes as part of water softeners.|
Salt Water Benefits
- No Calcium and Magnesium scales in appliances and pipes
- Less water heating charges due to no scale built up in water boilers and pipes
- No sticky film on bathtubs, shower tiles and you
- Less soap consumption, better laundry
Timer water softeners regenerate (clean themselves and regenerate resins) on a “state of the art” time clock, usually either once or twice per week depending on the quality of water (water hardness level). Timer water softener systems are made with the highest quality, name brands (Fleck®, Autotrol®, Clack®) control valves . Both water softener types are smart enough to only regenerate early in the morning (or whenever you tell them to).
Metered Water Softeners
Metered water softeners regenerate (clean themselves and regenerate resins) with fully programmable, computerized ‘metered’ controls. Metered Control operation electronically senses requirement to regenerate the resins as needed; saves water and salt (or potassium), as compared to ‘timer’ models. Depending on water hardness, usually regeneration is done either once or twice per week, this is generally done in the morning (or whenever you tell them to). Metered water softeners systems are made with the highest quality, name brands (Fleck®, Autotrol®, Clack®) control valves .
