How the E6 Works
Hard water enters your water softener and passes down through the ion exchange residn, which is charged with sodium ions. The hard water ions, calcium, and magnesium are attracted to the ion exchange resin, and an equal amount of sodium ions are bumped off into the water supply
When the water reaches the bottom of the tank, it is softened and ready to be used in your home or business.
When the tank providing the soft water is saturated with hard water minerals, the control valve places the second tank into the soft water mode and recharges the first tank.
A salt solution flushes the calcium and magnesium off the resin is recharged with sodium. The brine solution from your brine tank is fuel to recharge the resin with sodium.
Better Dishwasher Performance
Hardness reduction was 6 times more effective at reducing spotting and twice as effective at reducing filming as increasing detergent use
Detergent savings of up to 70% with soft water as compared to hard water
Brighter Clothes, Less Detergent
Stain removal performance increases dramatically when hardness is removed, even when the detergent dose and temperature are also lowered
Softening the water will allow the use of 60% less detergent* and will also save energy by lowering water temperatures, while still maintaining or improving performance
Improved Water Heater Efficiency
Gas storage tank water heaters operated on softened water maintained the original factory efficiency rating over a 15-yr lifetime
Hard water can result in as much as a 48% loss in water heater efficiency
Tank-less water heaters operating on 26.2 grains per gallon of hardness failed to operate after 19 days of testing
Softened water saves 40-57% of operating costs**
Advantages of using the E6
E6 Twin Tanks Water Softener means better Water for Health & Home
You will never run out of softened water again. The twin alternating system uses 100% of the availalbe capacity, then switches tanks and regenerates the exhausted tank. This provides softened water without interruption, on demand. The E6 provides softened water 24/7, so you never need to worry about running out of softenened water.
*The detergent savings studies were conducted by the independent testing firm Scientific Services S/D, Inc. of New York.
**The softened water benefit studies were conducted by the Battelle Memorial Institute, a non-profit international science and technologies enterprise.
Both studies were funded by the Water Quality Research Foundation (WQRF).
