H2O Water Softeners are built with the industry's best components. Rest assured that your family has soft water with zero hardness!
- Removes Calcium, Magnesium, Lime and Iron
- Prevents Scale Build Up in Hot Water Pipes (shown above) and on Heating Elements
- Optimizes Soap Use / Reduces Costs (learn more...)
With softened water, less laundry bleach is needed, and chemical softeners are not required. Soaps can be used instead of detergents, which have built-in chemical cleaners. Many of these are formulated either with phosphates or chemicals to buffer water hardness. Experience shows that total supply costs can be reduced as much as 50 percent. Your savings will depend on your present usage level of chemicals, which is directly related to the quality of your water.
- Almost Doubles Fabric Life (learn more...)
If yours is an in-house laundry, you're concerned with linen replacement costs. Two things cause fabrics to wear out - mechanical action of washing and chemical action. By using soft water and eliminating one rinse cycle, you reduce mechanical action. By cutting back on bleaches, detergents, and other chemicals (most of which you don't need with soft water), you reduce chemical action. You can expect linen replacement costs to be reduced up to 40 percent; once again depending on the amount of chemicals you're now using, and the quality of your water.
- Significantly Reduces Maintenance Costs (learn more...)
Every water-using appliance can suffer hard water damage. Hard water scale clogs pipes and nozzles, damages valves and pumps, impairs machine efficiency. When hard water puts a wash wheel down for repairs, that means lost production as well as repairs. Machine life can also be materially shortened, which means more frequent replacement of costly capital equipment.
- Improves Energy Efficiency of Water Heater (learn more...)
If you eliminate one hot rinse cycle, you reduce the energy necessary to heat that water. Using the 150 gallons example above, and applying a heating cost of 0.28¢ per gallon, it costs 42¢ to heat the rinse water. By eliminating the rinse cycle, you thus save $3.36 per day (42¢ × 8 cycles), or $16.80 per week, or $873.60 per year. That's based on current energy prices, and on one wheel only. When hard water scale builds up in your water heater, you must heat the scale before you can heat the water. That's an increase you don't need — and can eliminate with soft water.
H2O Water Softeners are made with Fleck Controls, Structural Poly Glass Tanks, and softening resin from Resintech that can stand up to chlorinated water.
The large capacity brine tank can hold over 120 lbs of salt. Our softeners can also be regenerated with potassium chloride as a salt alternative.
All water softeners include: Noryl Bypass, 3/4" or 1" Noryl Yoke, Safety Brine Valve, Top Distributor Upper Basket, Gravel Under-bedding & Fixed Elbow Drain Fitting
