Water Softeners

Company Reference: 

W100T Twin Alternating Series water softeners are ideal for residential and light commercial applications ranging from 20,000 to 210,000 grains of hardness removal capacity at flow rates to 24 gpm. The softeners with W110 Series control valves combine reliability and ease of service. 

Quality Considerations

Let’s take a look at three unique softener applications and some of the potential system configurations for each one. The first step is to identify the operating parameters. Does the customer need high-quality, low-leakage soft water? In that case, you likely will want to use a low-salted primary system followed by a high-salted upflow regenerating polisher. Maybe the application has a requirement for continuous softened water.

Water Conditioning System

Company Reference: 

The ScaleNet anti-scale water conditioning system eliminates hard water scale with virtually no homeowner maintenance, no salt additives and no electricity. The system prevents destructive scale build-up on pipe, valves and other plumbing system components using template-assisted crystallization technology, which attracts hardness minerals and converts them into harmless particles that float freely through the system.

Water Softener

Company Reference: 

The Clearion 2300 Duplex multiple tank system assures you have soft water 24 hours every day—even during the regeneration process. One tank is always in service while the other tank is either on standby or regenerating. This system is ideal for households with larger families, multiple bathrooms and showers that are used often every day. The Duplex is recommended for where treated water needs to be delivered at all times of the day.

App

Company Reference: 

Nicknamed the “digital selection guide,” the Pentair Filters app allows water treatment professionals to easily search for cartridges that fit a customer’s water needs. Dealers can search by application type, pipe size and the impurities the customer wants eliminated.
