TIME CLOCK BASED WATER SOFTENER SYSTEMS

Time clock water softeners are different from metered water softeners, as they regenerate on a calendar basis.  They do not measure water consumption, and only regenerate on the day-of-the-week as set by the user.  An electrical motor automatically initiates the regeneration process as the time setting is reached. These water softener systems can be purchased online by visiting our “Clock Water Softeners” page.

TIME CLOCK BASED WATER SOFTENER

BENEFITS YOU CAN EXPECT FROM SOFT WATER

  • Better Tasting Food & Beverages
  • Save Money on Detergents, soaps & Conditioners
  • Extend the Life of Pipes and Fixtures
  • Skin & Hair Will Feel Softer & Cleaner
  • Cleaner Clothes

A water softener will improve your quality of life and save you money as well. Mineral build-up caused by un-softened water will no longer occur on pipes, fixtures and equipment. In many cases, past damage caused by hard water will actually be reversed!

A Commercial/industrial water softener is available for any application. Please inquire for more information!

WHY CHOOSE A CAI WATER SOFTENER?

HIGH EFFICIENCY

CAI softeners utilize “State of the Art” control systems to yield higher efficiencies than other systems. CAI Softeners can have the highest real-life efficiency of any softening system available when ordered with our high-end micro-processor controlled valve. Many available CAI Softeners use a proportional counter-current brining system that requires up to 60% less salt than competitive softeners.

LOW MAINTENANCE

CAI Softening systems are designed to be easy to use. High efficiency metered units are available that use less salt than standard timed systems. Many of our units utilize a unique soft water refill of the brine tank that results in longer run time between routine maintenance calls.

QUALITY CONSTRUCTION

CAI Water Softener construction is second to none. Our valves are constructed of Noryl, a high-tech patented material from GE, or durable lead-free brass. The resin tank is fabricated of fiberglass and lined with polyethylene – a completely corrosion resistant system!

SUPER SAVINGS

A CAI Water Softener will allow you to use less soap and detergent, saving the environment and saving you money. In addition, a CAI Water Softener prevents the build-up of harmful mineral scale, adding years of service life to pipes, appliances and hot water heaters, thus paying for itself in the short and long term

MORE STANDARD FEATURES

Each CAI Water Softener includes many standard features that are extra cost options on competitor’s systems including:

  • Shipping from our warehouse to your door – The listed price is the full price.
  • No added packing & handling charges
  • System by-pass valve
  • Full charge of high quality Ionac C-249 or C-266 (fine mesh) softener resin for each tank size – We never under-fill our resin tanks!

  • Resin tank turbulator for improved softening effectiveness (Note: Turbulators not required or supplied with 64,000 grain capacity or up-flow systems)
  • All new systems with full manufacturers warranties – No rebuilt or used systems – 5 years warranty on valve & control, 5 year warranty on brine tank – 10 year warranty on resin tanks. Lifetime 24 hour technical support included with each purchase!

OTHER AVAILABLE CAI WATER SOFTENER SYSTEMS:

MICROPROCESSOR BASED METERED WATER SOFTENERS
These are single resin tank water softeners, with a separate brine/salt tank. Microprocessor based units measure your water consumption, and regenerate only as required. Sometimes referred to as a demand water softener, these softeners measure water consumption using a turbine that turns as your water is used.

An electronic sensor detects the rate of turbine spin and sends a signal to the on-board computer control. Using parameters that are pre-set by the user (capacity, water hardness, etc.), the computer determines when regeneration is required and initiates the regeneration process automatically. These water softener systems can be purchased online by visiting our “Metered Water Softeners” page.

ELECTRO-MECHANICAL METERED WATER SOFTENERS
These are single resin tank water softeners, with a separate brine/salt tank. Theses units measure your water consumption and regenerate only as required. Also referred to as a demand water softeners, electro-mechanical metered water softeners measure water consumption with a turbine that turns as your water is used.

The turbine is connected directly to a mechanical water meter by cable. When the user-set gallon capacity is reached, an electrical motor is activated by a micro-switch, and moves the water softener through the regeneration process. These water softener systems can also be purchased online by visiting our “Metered Water Softeners” page.

  • WS4C Water Softener – Fleck 5600EC (3/4 inch)
  • WS6C Water Softener – Fleck 2510EC (1 inch)

TWIN TANK WATER SOFTENERS
Twin tank water softeners have two resin tanks and a separate salt/brine tank. Twin tank units are always metered (demand), using either an electro-mechanical metering system, or computer based microprocessor meter. Twin tank systems always have a fully regenerated tank available on standby, and deliver uninterrupted 24 hour supply of softened water.

TWIN TANK WATER SOFTENERS

During regeneration, water is first passed thru the online tank before entering the tank undergoing regeneration – regeneration using this pre-treated water helps clean the system and extends the water softener lifetime.

Electro-mechanical metered water softeners measure water consumption with a turbine that turns as your water is used. The turbine is connected directly to a mechanical water meter by cable.
