10-inch x 54-inch resin tank
Riser tube with distributor basket
1.5 cubic feet fine mesh resin
Fleck 2510SXT Digital Metered Control Head
Choice of connection
Standard Brine Tank with Safety Float
Flow meter measures water and regenerates based on water use, not time, conserving salt and water
Contains 1.5 cubic feet of fine resin capable of removing up to 48,000 grains of compensated hardness (hardness factoring in iron and manganese) between regeneration cycles
Specifically designed for treatment of both ferrous (red water) and ferric (clear water) iron, up to a maximum of 6-8 ppm
Treats a maximum flow rate of 12 gallons per minute
Ion exchange process physically removes the ions that cause hard water
Specially designed resin traps ferrous iron and manganense as well as the hardness
Water that has been softened does not form scale buildup on faucets or fixtures or inside pipes
Soft water improves soap efficiency, reducing the amount required for dishes, laundry, and bathing.
Maximum efficiency & longevity and minimal maintenance with simple LCD display and touchpad controls for user friendly control
Durable, high quality polyglass tank made by a trusted name in tank manufacturing
Used for holding salt used during the regeneration process, holds over 200 lb of salt
Simple system connections and detailed installation instructions allow most homeowners to install this system themselves. For those who prefer to leave the work to a professional, most plumbers can install the system in 1-2 hours.
Hard water causes a multitude of problems. Scale build-up restricts pipes, builds up on fixtures, and can degrade appliances. Hard water spots are also common on dishes and many other surfaces. The ions that comprise hard water attract soap molecules, requiring more soap to get the job done. This also causes an increase in soap scum and can prevent the removal of dirt and bacteria when bathing. Hard water has also been know to cause hair and skin to be brittle and dry.
Water softeners use an ion-exchange process to remove the ions that create hard water, eliminating hard water and the problems associated with it. Automatic regeneration initiated by a high quality Fleck metered head means high efficiency, consistent water treatment, and low maintenance. Soft water will extend the life of your appliances, decrease soap requirements, and decrease the occurrence of soap scum. Softer hair and skin are also common when using water that has been softened.
Fine mesh resin provides increased iron removal ability, treating ferrous iron as well as hardness, eliminating the need for a separate system in most applications. NOTE: For high iron levels or homes with ferric iron a dedicated iron filter is needed.
Controlled by the digital Fleck 2510SXT, efficiency and control come together in a user friendly interface. On demand regeneration keeps up with high demands and conserves water and salt when demand is low. This results in consistent treatment and higher efficiency. The 2510SXT controller is one of the best residential controllers from Fleck. It has a dual-motor design, compared to the single-motor design used in the 5600 valves. This results in less maintenance, stronger piston movement, and a longer lasting valve. These valves have an outstanding 5 year warranty and have been tested to run continuously for many years! In addition, the SXT controller offers some great features, including a backlit LCD display, touchpad controls, 48 hour internal power backup, and a user friendly interface.
The durable polyglass resin tank is manufactured by Structural USA and is backed by a 10 year warranty. The simple design allows for installation almost anywhere without being unsightly. NOTE: Tank color may vary from the one shown
This system comes complete with a brine tank that includes a float assembly for added reliability and peace of mind. Capable of holding over 200 lb of salt, the large capacity of this brine tank requires infrequent addition of salt and reduces maintenance. NOTE: Color and design may vary from the system pictured
Simple connections and simple set up make this system great for DIYers. Detailed online installation instructions offer a step-by-step guide on proper installation and set up of the system on installation
So far so good. Delivery was good, just a few days.
Solved all my water problems. Before this unit was installed we had the iron algae growing in the back of the toilets, the water would turn brown if we let it sit overnight, and all of the appliances (washer, shower, sink, toilet, etc) were stained brown from the iron. Now we have none of that. I would have purchased along time ago if I had know it would work so well. Many website will tell you that you have to spend between $2,500 - $3,000 to fix a water problem like mine. Glad I went out on a limb and tried this, because it works great and for a lot less
This water softener is awesome! We almost bought one that does the same thing for three times the price! Someone helped us research and found this one. We have super hard iron well water. Orange stains on everything! I am so happy with this . Get this if you have bad water especially if you have calcification that builds up in your pipes. After setting it up ourselves, took my husband a day with instructions online. There was a leak on the top. We called the company, they sent the part free if course and it's worked fine since. Our water is so soft and sudsy. It doesn't smell anymore either. We saved so much money!
The Iron Pro System is installed and is operating fine. The packages were delivered with some shipping damage to the containers but nothing was broken inside. Installation was straight-forward and easy. My only complaints are that the documentation sent with control unit is not for my unit, luckily I was able to download a manual from the manufacture. Additionally, there is no explanation how to calculate the compensated hardness, this system is designed as a softener/Iron removal but nowhere does it discuss how to set the hardness setting correctly. **AFW Response** Installation instructions are available on our support page - www.afwfilters.com/support/ They include programming instructions which cover calculating compensated hardness.
