Water Softener Systems

What they do

Water softener systems are specific ion exchangers that are designed to remove hard mineral ions, which are positively charged.  Softeners mainly remove calcium (Ca2+) and magnesium (Mg2+) ions. Calcium and magnesium are often referred to as 'hardness minerals'. Softeners and other water treatment equipment are sometimes even applied to remove iron. 

Softeners can operate automatic, semi-automatic, or manual. Each type is rated on the amount of hardness it can remove before regeneration is necessary.
Water softeners collect hardness minerals within its conditioning tank and from time to time flushes them away to the drain.
Ion exchangers are often used for water softening. When an ion exchanger is applied for water softening, it will replace the calcium and magnesium ions in the water with other ions, for instance sodium or potassium. The exchanger ions are added to the ion exchanger reservoir as sodium and potassium salts (NaCl and KCl).

Fleck Automatic Meter Sytem

The Fleck 5600SXT is the most popular and well regarded water softener from the Fleck range. This classic model has stood the test of time, and has recently received an upgrade to its design. Gone is the aging mechanical meter, and now in its place is a 21st century electronic meter. The new meter has all the functionality of the old, but is more accurate and easier to use. Fleck state that in testing these new meters have been seen to run continuously for 27 years! This water softener’s design is so efficient and effective that a simple meter upgrade was all that was needed to improve on an already impressive unit.

Available in a range of sizes, to suit the water softening needs of any household. Grain capacities of 16,000, 24,000, 32,000, 40,000, 48,000, and 64,000 are now available. For the purpose of this review we will concentrate on the 48,000 grain sized model. Anyway, let’s take a look at how effective the Fleck softener is.
