Energy Efficient Water Softener

Water hardness testing kitSo what makes the AT210 an Enegy Efficient Water Softener?

We're glad you asked! Many water softeners have an inbuilt timer and regenerate at fixed intervals regardless of how much water you have used. If you haven't used much water then the regeneration process which uses electricity, water and salt - is pointless.

The AT210 uses clever sensing technology to measure how much water you are using and regenerates only when it is necessary, saving electricity, water and salt.

Supplied with the water softer is a water hardness test kit which is used to measure how hard the water is in your area. Using this simple test kit you can set the water softener to regenerate at the most efficient level for you area. It's easy and only takes 5 minutes and only needs to be done once.

What is 'regeneration'?

Regeneration is the process of restoring the softening ability of the resin. When water is softened in an ion exchange process, sodium ions are exchanged for calcium and magnesium. When the sodium ions are all used up, the softening resin becomes exhausted. The water softener then 'regenerates' the resin with brine, and the calcium and magnesium are exchanged for sodium. The resin is then flushed and cleaned back to its original softening state.
