ReSTore softener treatment is a specially formulated solution intended to clean fouled resin to restore performance and efficiency. It “supercharges” the salt regeneration process, removing iron and other contaminants that can build up over time and reduce overall resin performance. Regular usage of this product during regeneration can help prevent future fouling, increase performance and extend resin life.
Smart ‘N Soft high-efficiency water conditioners use a metered control valve and “smart brining” technique to conserve salt and water. Resin tanks employ the dual-chamber Vortech distribution system to conserve water by reducing backwash duration; the system also keeps media separated. These water conditioners use a two-step process: The first reduces chlorine, tastes, odors and organics; the second removes calcium, magnesium and iron. The systems come with digital controls. The full product line offers a wide range of flow rates and requirements.
The benefits water softeners provide in terms of preventing limescale buildup in piping and extending the life of appliances like water heaters and dishwashers are well established. However, in response to water shortages in some parts of the country, municipalities are considering restrictions or bans on water softeners, which add salt to water in the process of removing calcium and magnesium to soften it. The water softener industry has self-regulated by producing systems that use water and salt more efficiently.
