Water Softeners

AWE-100 Water Softening System

AWE 100 Water SoftenerThe benefits of installed a water softening system:

  • Boilers and water heaters will last longer and use less energy.
  • Chemical costs for boilers and related equipment can be significantly reduced.
  • The service life of appliances, plumbing fixtures, towels, linens and uniforms …etc. are noticeably increased.
  • Cleaner and improved spot-free results from washing cars to silverware.

The money you can save by installing a water softener system:

If a family of four can save up to $500 per year with softened water verses hard water, as a result of energy savings, soap savings, plumbing repairs and valuable cleaning time, think what the savings could be for your application.

How the AWE-100 1" Hi-Flow System softens water:

Water SoftenerHard water passes through the media tank that contains resin beads coated with sodium ions. The calcium and magnesium ions are exchanged for sodium (or potassium) ions, thus softening the water. When the beads have trapped the hardness and need to be regenerated, the Hi-Flow’s control valve charges them with the brine from the brine tank.

As regeneration occurs, calcium and magnesium (hardness) ions are freed from the beads, replaced with sodium or potassium ions; and the system is ready to soften water again.

Capacity is one of the first things you should look for in a water softener. The average family uses 80 to 100 gallons of water per person per day. That means a household of five requires 400 gallons of softened water daily. If your water has a hardness rating of 30 grains per gallon (gpg), for example, you would need to remove 12,000 grains per day (400 gallons x 30 grains). With a water softener that regenerates every 3 days, your minimum softener capacity would be 36,000 grains (12,000 grains x 3 days).

Brine tank performance insurance

All water softeners may be ordered with optional salt grid which virtually prevents salt bridging.
