look at the systems below, are they the same?
They could be. The valves are the same. One tank has a pretty cover and the other does not. The salt tanks are different, but what is in side the system? View the photos below and see.
You may have noticed they are the same, on the inside. They have no way of protecting the resin.
The value is Proprietary. Also notice inside the system. The resin is at the top and the carbon is at the bottom. The sales person would say something like this:
"This is much more than a water softener, it is a state of the art water conditioning system. It removes chemicals and softens your water"
The fact is, the resin is being attacked by chlorine. Then the carbon removes the chlorine before it enters your home. To make matters worse, there is only enough carbon to ABSORB chlorine for 1 to 2 years depending on your water usage. And there is nothing to stop the growth of bacteria and algae, inside your system.
WE Remove the chlorine & other chemicals, before it ever touches your resin. This allows us to use a fine mesh resin, which is the most efficient resin on the market. Resulting in 1/5 the salt usage needed for the resin used in ordinary water softeners.
You can then get a life time of Trouble free use from your water treatment system.
