In this compartment is where the water enters the machine. We are able to compartmentalize our machine using our patented flow and regeneration screens. What we do is trap the filtering medias between two screens. That allows us to utilize 100% of a medias capacity and capabilities by spreading the water out evenly over the whole area and then spinning the media during the backwash cycle.
In this first compartment you will receive several things. First we offer a media that never has to be replaced that removes water soluble heavy metals. It is important to remove heavy metals lead, mercury, copper, nickel, chromium, and other dissolved metals. It controls scale and algae, even in hot water. Then we remove the chlorine and chemicals the cities put in our water. As if that wasn't enough we then filter your water down to 5 micron with a media that never has to be replaced and doesn't restrict the water flow. As you can see with our first compartment we are able to accomplish more with no chemicals than a conventional water softener does with multiple machines and chemicals. Plus as an added bonus it protects the compartments below it. We are so confident we give you a warranty for a full 10 years non-prorated... The best in the industry!
Compare the conventional pretreatment, Most companies offer a cartridge type filter that will reduce your water pressure and eventually clog up and should be changed frequently. Then they use a carbon tank filter to remove the chlorine and chemicals from the water before it goes in the water softener. The problem is chlorine and heavy metals destroy carbon that is the reason you have to change your refrigerator filter. This adds $1500.00 to their softener.
