What you will need
You will require the assistance of a plumber to manage the installation of the water softener, you will also need to purchase some rubber hosing for the drain on the back of the softener, garden hose will be suitable for this.
The unit can be self commissioned but should you prefer us to carry out this task please contact us for a quote, it will be unlikely we can commission at short notice so please keep this in mind.
Working out hardness and Softener capacity
When choosing your residential water softener you will need to work out the hardness of your area, this information should be available online. The softener will have a capacity (m3) of hard water it can soften before it reaches exhaustion and requires regeneration. You will need to calculate your regeneration using your water’s hardness and typical daily water usage to work out how often your softener will need to regenerate and set the time clock accordingly. You will want to set it to regenerate with a healthy buffer time prior to exhaustion so no hardness is passed, you should set regeneration to happen at a period of unlikely usage for example in the early hours of the morning as the softener will go into by pass during regeneration.
Capacity at different hardnesses
|Hardness||Capacity of softened water|
If your mains water hardness is 300ppm hardness (Typical London Water)
Your water softener will need to regenerate after producing 1400 litres (1.4 m3) of soft water.
If you use just under 1400 litres of water per day then a nightly regeneration will suit you fine, if you work out you need more than one regeneration a day you should be looking at a larger domestic water softener model, (please see in our shop). Alternatively you may work out you will only need to regenerate once every couple of days.
