Regeneration

Rethinking Regeneration.

Upflow regeneration allows for a more precise recharge of the resin allowing the system to only recharge the depleted resin.

Upflow regeneration also drives hardness away from the resin to the drain instead of downflow that forces "dirty" water through the clean charged resin.

If the system drops below 3% a short recharge will restore the system to get to the regular 2:00 AM delayed regeneration time.

Green Technology that reduces salt discharge by as much as 75%.

Valve Head

Valve Head

Utilizes a 30 year proven internal ceramic disc. No more torn or worn seals. 

Advanced smart digital control provides precise brining customized to your water source reducing salt usage by as much as 45%.

Selective backwashing reduces water usage by up to 64% over standard water softeners.

Soft water brine refill keeps your brine tank cleaner and control head running smoother.

    It has been in for 2 weeks and the flow of soft water has been outstanding. It promises to be very low effort to maintain it as it counts the gallons used and regenerates based on the our usage not a time schedule. I am very happy with the support team that helped me thru the installation. They were available and responded quickly.
    Installation is relatively simple though the instructions are inadequate. One video I found on the discount water softeners website clarified the preparation and programing of the valve unit, the lubrication and installation of the resin filter. The written instructions for preparing the brine tank were out of order and incomplete and I could see no video to help. I had to guess at half of the preparation of the brine tank. Further I didn’t read the parts list carefully and misunderstood that the brine and flow valve drain lines are not included. I had also missed the fact that I could have ordered them at the time I ordered the Water Softener. I was told it was an option on the website where I ordered it but I completely missed it. I suggest calling them when you order to be sure you see all the options. Further , the bypass valve has a part called the impeller that is not mentioned in the instructions and no warning is given that it can easily fall out of the bypass valve unnoticed. If it is not in place the gallons can not be counted so the valve display shows no water usage. The support team provided a video that clarified its placement and what it looks like.

    Water softener is good, works well, easy to install. People at Discount Water Softeners are less so. Woman be that answers phone pretends to have knowledge but does not. Previous calls to service were met with incompetence. Now I'm told they had some people issues which have been resolved. Theses people get testy when I ask questions. I've bought 2 softeners from them, but, its not been a pleasant process. They even give wrong delivery dates. I was told Sunday or at the latest Monday, fact was Tuesday.

    Overall a good experience. Easy set up and great videos and literature to get me up and running. This was a DIY project that I would rate a 2 on scale of 1-5 with 5 being most difficult. The only criticism I have is the drain line in my opinion is too small at 1/2" and is very noisy during backwash cycle. I would like to see that at 3/4" or 1" for more volume. Softener is doing its job and we are already noticing a difference in our water.

    Had hauge water softener out to my newly baught home and to rent one of their water softeners would have cost me 70.00 a month plus 360.00 installation. If I would have baught out right almost 4,000.00. I started researching and came across this one. Was pretty simple to install on our own. The brine tank was all messed up but we simply reattach the bottom cap. I think it's doing a pretty good job. I wish they would have sent water testing kit with it though because I'm not positive until I buy one to test water so I can't review and be 100% honest about water quality right now! My hair is doing alot better however!!!

    My softener has been in service for about a week now. I will share my experience, just in case someone else encounters the same thing. After installation I put the system into immediate operation with no pre-charge. After a few days the observation was no soft water was being produced. I then initiated a regenerate cycle. I monitored this operation and was very pleased with the operation with all the cycles, and especially the backwash, the volume and force it exhibited. From what I have read this is crucial for preparing the resin bed for the next period of use. Thanks!

    would give more than 5 stars if possible, low head loss and high flow rate are a definite bonus. Sold last one with the house so this is going into our new house, can't wait.

    The softener was very easy to install and get up and running. Only had in service for 3 days, but so far it is working great.
    Purchasing from Discount Water Softeners was very easy. They answered any questions I had and the delivery was quick and just as advertised.
    Very satisfied.
