Valumax Fleck VM-1.5-5600MI 1.5CUFT 45K RT 10 x 54 5600M Metered Control Water Softener.

A softener is a water treatment system the converts hard water (water with a high content of the minerals magnesium and calcium) into softer, more usable water for your home.

Water softeners contain a resin that absorbs the calcium and magnesium (and releases sodium), and in that way decreases the mineral content and hardness of the water.

When the resin is saturated, it is regenerated by flushing the system with a brine (rock salt) solution, and letting water containing the excess calcium and magnesium run to waste.

This regeneration cycle is controlled via an automatic timer which is set based on the hardness of the incoming water and capacity of water required.

Benefits of using a water softener.

Saves you money It will lesson the risk
of damage to your appliances that results from
scale build up.
Pipe scaling Softened water will keep pipes free
of scale and in so doing prevent
lack-of-flow problems.
Geyser scaling Hard water can damage geyser elements
causing them to burn out.
Scale build-up on elements also causes geysers to heat up
water slower, increasing your electric bill.
Kettle scaling Scale can break of from inside the
kettle and contaminate your water.
Bath rings A water softener will substantially
reduce the formation of bath rings,
which are difficult to clean.
Shower nozzles Shower nozzles will not become clogged
up with scale.
Soap and shampoo Soaps and shampoos lather better
and are more effective in soft water,
and will sometimes create no lather at all in hard water.
