SOME IMPORTANT THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

BEFORE PURCHASING A REGENERATIVE WATER SOFTENER FOR HOME OR COMMERCIAL USE

(1) There are 34 states which have instituted restrictions at city or county levels regarding the discharge of regenerative water softeners into the sanitary sewer systems. These restrictions have been put in place to protect either local water quality of municipal water sources or to protect agricultural, orchard or other food producing areas from the high total dissolved solids(TDS) which are discharged by regenerative water softeners and in many cases find their way back into the local water supplies.

High levels of total solids, and in particular, discharged sodium, chloride or potassium salts prevent normal hydration of plant life much like these same salts can create severe dehydration effects in humans. (try drinking ocean water with high levels of sodium, chloride or potassium salts and wonder why people die of dehyration when doing so).

Whether you are a homeowner contemplating the installation of a regenerative home water conditioner/softener or an industrial user which requires this type of water conditioning in your operations, we recommend that you contact your local or regional Water Resources Board to determine if any such restrictions apply in your area.

(2) Because of the increasing number of regenerative restrictions as noted in (1) above, a wide variety of "alternative" water conditioning technologies have been slowly appearing in the marketplace.

This flood of "alternative water conditioning" technologies comes from both European and American developers who have been sniffing glue in the closet too long or who have been walking around in the sun to long with a metal pyramid sitting on their heads.

Outrageous claims of "water conditioning" have not been backed up by any reputable scientific studies, Nor have peer-reviewed technical articles appearing in the accepted journals of water technology. With 34 states desperately seeking ways of eliminating regenerative salt discharges, if any of these alternative systems worked as advertised it would represent a windfall solution for this environmental problem. Yet, no such solution has proven successful.

Many of these "alternative" systems employ some type of electronic or magnetic component which it is claimed changes the water condition to one which eliminates scale and other hard water conditions. While the Soviet Union and the US Air Force appear to have successfully employed extremely high powered electromagnetic systems to alleviate hard water problems, such technologies have not been successful in home environments. Afterall, a two million dollar investment is not what the average homeowner has in mind when looking to solve a hard water problem in the home.

A final warning - beware of high pressure salespersons using various slight of hand and mouth tricks to convince you that these magnetic or electronic systems will solve your problem. Water associations and respected water journals simply do not allow such falsely promoted equipment to appear in their shows or journals.

System 7 - Meter Immediate (Alternating, 2 valves)
This is a 2 unit system, with one meter for the entire system and only one unit in service. When the volume of treated water drops to zero for the unit in service, it requests regeneration. This causes the unit in standby to move to service. Then the unit requesting regeneration moves to standby and begins regeneration.


OTHER WATER SOFTENER/CONDITIONER OPERATIONAL CONFIGURATIONS


System 6 - Meter Immediate (Series, 2-4 valves) - 1.0"to 3" interfaces(see diagram above), various flow rates to 200 GPM - call for info(1-800-478-7342)
This is a 2 to 4 unit system, with one meter for the entire system and all in service. When the entire system volume of treated water drops to zero, it requests the first unit to go into regeneration. Then, when the first unit is done regenerating, the second follows, and so on.

System 5 - Meter Immediate (Interlock, 2-4 valves) 1.0" to 3" interfaces(see diagram above), various flow rates to 200 GPM - call for info(1-800-478-7342)
This is a 2 to 4 unit system, each unit having a meter and all in service. Only one unit is allowed in regeneration at a time. A unit regenerates immediately when the available volume of treated water drops to zero and no other unit is in regeneration.


THE REALLY BIG STUFF? CUSTOM DESIGN ON REQUEST

Have pipe size, flow rate, hardness and full water analysis available to obtain price and delivery information.
