12-inch resin tank
Riser tube with distributor basket
2 cubic feet fine mesh capacity resin
10 lb KDF85
Fleck 5600 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 2 cubic feet of fine resin capable of removing up to 64,000 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 8 ppm
Designed to remove hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg odor), chlorine, and a wide range of heavy metals, chlorine
Treats a maximum flow rate of 16 gallons per minute
Ion exchange process physically removes the ions that cause hard water
Specially designed resin traps iron and manganense as well as the hardness
KDF85 treats low levels of hydrogen sulfide, the cause of rotten egg odor in water
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.
Low cost metered head provides efficient treatment at an economical price
Durable, high quality polyglass tank made by a trusted name in tank manufacturing
Used for holding salt used during the regeneration process. Measures approximately 18"x33" and holds approximately 300 lbs 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.
Iron causes rust buildup that causes appliances, fixtures, clothes, and even hair to turn a red-orange color. Manganese causes a black slime buildup, usually seen in toilet tanks and other areas where water is allowed to stand. Hydrogen sulfide (sulfur) is a common contaminant detectable by a noticable -inchrotten egg-inch odor
Water softeners use an ion-exchange process to remove the ions that create hard water, eliminating hard water and the problems associated with it. Standard softening resin will only remove a small amount of clear water (ferrous) iron only. Fine mesh resin improves that capacity to a moderate level (8 ppm or less) of both clear water and red water (ferric) iron. Adding KDF85 media allows it to treat hydrogen sulfide (sulfur) as well as chlorine and heavy metals
Automatic regeneration initiated by a high quality Fleck metered head means high efficiency, consistent water treatment, and low maintenance. Treated water will extend the life of your appliances, reduce replacement costs, decrease soap requirements, and decrease the occurrence of soap scum. Softer hair and skin are also common when using water that has been treated.
Controlled by the low cost Fleck 5600, this system provides durability and efficiency in an economical package. The 5600 control head is metered, meaning it measures the amount of water used and regenerates only as needed! On vacation? This system will delay regeneration until you return, reducing salt and water consumption. Lots of company? This system keeps up, providing additional regenerations to accommodates the increased water use. Backed by an outstanding 5-year warranty and tested to withstand up to 27 years of continual use, you can be sure you are getting a system that will last.
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 up to 300 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
Please Note: 12” tanks are shipped in either the 48” height or 52” height, depending on availability. If you have a specific requirement please add it to your notes when checking out and we will do our best to accommodate you.
