The system is working great. – Curtis Campbell Needville, Texas
Earlier this week a customer wrote to us asking for a whole house filter and salt-free softener system that also removes chlorine. This is certainly possible, but first, let's explore how no-salt water softeners actually work: Salt-free water conditioners work by producing a catalytic reaction to convert calcium and magnesium in water to form calcite … Continue reading No-Salt Water Softeners For The Whole House And Family
Here are two photos of our water system installation that was completed last spring. The installation includes a Sentry well head pellet chlorinator, 80 gallon contact tank, Pro-Ox iron filter and water softener, both with the Fleck 7000 SXT control valve.

Generally, we recommend an iron filter to remove iron, but in certain cases, a water softener will do the trick, too. That is if your water's pH … Continue reading What’s the Difference Between Fine Mesh Resin and Standard Resin When Removing Iron?
Often customers will ask us if they can chlorinate their water at their house and not at the well head. For example, they may live in a small community where the well water is shared by a group of homes, and the water may be smelly, or contain iron, manganese, or coliform bacteria. For these … Continue reading Easy to Install Flow Sensor Type Chlorinators
A common question we often get is how to install an auto-backwash carbon filter and a water softener. Carbon filters remove chlorine, tastes, odors and sediment and are self cleaning. Carbon backwash filters installed in front of water softeners or no-salt water conditioners make a great combination. The carbon filter is installed prior to the … Continue reading How Do I Install A Carbon Backwash Filter and a Water Softener In Series?
