Will this unit remove all the Iron Lime and Manganese from my water?
Yes, this unit will remove all the Iron Lime and Manganese from your water.
How does it work?
The unit has a capacity to produce up-to 14000 litres of Lime Iron and Manganese free water per week.
Where will i save money?
Softened water provides real cost savings in service, maintenance and replacement of water heaters, dishwashers,washing machines and showers and also extends their life. It will improve the efficiency of hot water and heating systems-just 1.6mm (1/16″) of scale build-up in heating systems will cause a 12% loss in heating efficiency. Softened water can also remove existing scale deposits in hot water and heating systems as well as the scale around taps, in shower heads and stains on baths and basins.
How does the water softener work?
The idea behind a water iron/manganese/lime removal unit is simple. The calcium magnesium ions (limescale) iron and manganese in the water are replaced with sodium ions. Since sodium does not precipitate out in pipes or react badly with soap, both of the problems of hard water are eliminated. To do the ion replacement, the water in the house runs through a bed of a High Grade ASR4 resin bead. The ASR4 resin beads are covered with sodium ions. As the water flows past the sodium ions, they swap places with the calcium magnesium ions and Iron/manganese. Eventually, the ASR4 beads contain nothing but calcium magnesium and Iron and no sodium, and at this point they stop softening and removing iron from the water. It is then time to regenerate the ASR4 resin beads with brine (salt) which must be added to the salt tank every 1-2 months depending on water usage. Regeneration involves soaking the ASR4 resin beads or in a stream of sodium ions. Salt is sodium chloride, so the AS900 mixes up a very strong brine solution and flushes it through the resin beads (this is why you load up a water softener with salt). The strong brine displaces all of the calcium magnesium (lime) iron and manganese that has built up in the ASR4 resin beads and replaces it again with sodium. The remaining brine plus all of the calcium magnesium iron and manganese is flushed out through a drain pipe
