How much sodium does a softener put in the water?

It depends on how much hardness and iron is in your water. A softener is a ion exchanger, so the more iron and hardness you have in your water, the more sodium gets exchanged.

What is Reverse Osmosis?

Reverse osmosis, sometimes referred to as hyper-filtration, is the process of removing water impurities by forcing the water though a semi-permeable membrane. Naturally, liquids will flow from the direction of the diluted solution to the concentrated (osmosis).  A reverse osmosis water system will allow for the removal of impurities such as salts and other molecules. 

What is a Descaler?

Descalers use an upflow Vortech™ tank and a special media to act as a catalyst on calcium. This action causes the calcium molecules to cling to each other, forming a calcium lattice structure. This newly formed structure does not cling to other surfaces. It may take 30 - 90 days to remove old calcium scale build up from inside pipes and hot water heaters.

What is an Iron Extractor?

Iron Extractors use a large capacity Vortech™ tank and air chamber combining iron, oxygen, and hydrogen sulfide gas (rotton egg smell) into solids. These solids are then trapped in a special media and flushed out.
