WATER SOFTENING


A Commercial Water Softener will eliminate the build up of limescale in your pipes and on heating elements found in hot water and heating systems as well as equipment including commercial dishwashers, glasswashers and washing machines, leading to fewer expensive engineer call-outs and replacement parts.

There are additional benefits to installing a water softener such as:

  • Saving money – you can expect reduction of up to 50% in the amount of detergents and soaps used, and it will also eliminate the need to use salt in most dishwashers and glasswashers with glasses and crockery drying without spotting or streaking.
  • Saving time – there will be no more build up of scale in hot water systems leading to less time being spent cleaning sinks, basins, baths, showers and taps etc.
  • Save energy – a Genus Commercial Water Softener will reduce existing limescale in your pipes by dissolving and washing away all of the scale, returning your system to its original condition.
  • Official government released figures graphically show the potential cost of hard water. Only 1.5mm of scale reduces the efficiency of boilers by almost 10%.

TYPES OF WATER SOFTENER


SIMPLEX

Simplex water softeners are best suited to situations where moderate total water consumption and consistent demands are factors. The regeneration of a Simplex unit is controlled either by a metered or timed control valve. Simplex units regenerate at a convenient period of low water usage normally during the night.
Control valves on Simplex water softeners allow hard water to service during regeneration – a bypass closedown facility is available on request.
Simplex water softeners will need to be sized to give at least one day’s softened water output before regeneration.

TWIN TANK

Twin tank water softeners use two resin columns linked with a multiport valve and are designed to give a continuous supply of softened water.
Twin tank water softeners can be regenerated every four hours if required but are normally sized to give one regeneration per column per day. Because Twin Tank systems can regenerate up to six times a day, this enables a smaller system to be employed than would be required in a simplex system.

DUPLEX

Duplex water softeners operate in the same manner as twin tank systems except the system comprises of two Simplex water softeners controlled through an external microprocessor control unit. When systems are configured in Duplex formation higher flow rates can be achieved with the use of larger Simplex control valves coupled to make a Duplex system.


SOLUTIONS FOR ALL
