Why Should I Purchase a Water Softener from Quality Water Treatment

1. CAN I INSTALL MY OWN WATER SOFTENER?

Yes you can. The majority of our customers install them by themselves. If you don't feel comfortable doing so you can hire a local plumber or handyman to install it. Our systems come with full installation guides and we also offer easy installation quick connection hoses on our website to make installation easier for you.

2. HOW DO I REACH CUSTOMER SERVICE?

3. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO AFTER MY WATER SOFTENER IS INSTALLED?

After your water softener is installed and programmed properly, your only real ongoing maintenance is to make sure that there is always salt in the brine tank. If the salt runs out, the brine solution cannot regenerate the resin beads and you will not have soft water.

Our Softpro Premiere Pura water softeners carries a lifetime warranty on tanks and 7 years on the valve.

As soon as you find that there might be a problem with your water softener, contact us immediately. We will help you and get the issue resolved at no cost to you. 

5. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FLECK DOWN FLOW WATER SOFTENER AND A UP FlOW SOFTPRO WATER SOFTENER?

The Fleck down flow water softeners is older technology that still works today. Basically the water softener regenerates and flows downward, when it regenerates it uses the full amount salt needed to recharge the whole resin bed even if not needed which waste salt and water. Fleck water softeners only carry a 5 year warranty on the valve and 10 years on the tanks.

A SoftPro up flow on demand water softener is newer technology that actually counts every gallon of water used so that the system can regenerate only when needed. If you use twice as much water or half as much water as usual the system will know it and only recharges the resin bed that needs to be charged saving you a average of $3,297.00 over the lifetime of the water softener system. That is a average of $219.80 savings per year. These figures have been founded based on data we have gathered from reliable resources.

This is how it is calculated:

Salt saving over average life of a water softener which is 15 years using a Softpro Water Softener is $3,297.00
Here is the math:
5 people x 75 gallons per day of water per person = 375 gallons of water used per day x hardness of 25 grains per gallon - 9,375 grains of hardness being removed per day. Using a 48,000 grain water softeners we divide the 9357 grains of hardness by the capacity of the softener. 48,000 divided by 9375 grains = 5.12 days
A fleck water softener you have to back off one full day for reserves so you don't run out of soft water in the middle of the day or evening. 
Fleck will regenerate every 4 days or every 1500 gallons of water used.
Fleck 48,000 grain water softener uses 22.5 pounds of salt per regeneration. 
Takes 365 days per year and divide by the days of regeneration. 365 divided by 4 = 91 regeneration per year x the amount of salt per regeneration. 91 x 22.5 = 2047 pounds of salt per year.  Salt pellets are generally sold in 40 pound bags at a average cost of $6.28 after tax per bag.
2047 pounds divided by 40 pound bags = 51 bags of salt per year is what a fleck water softener will us based on averages. this is a operating cost of $320.28 per year (26.69 per month )
SoftPro average operating cost:
A Softpro water softener you don't need to back off one full day for reserves because it has a emergency short regeneration mode so you don't run out of soft water in the middle of the day or evening. so you gain a full day of soft water over the fleck. 
SoftPro will regenerate every 5 days or every 1500 gallons of water used.
SoftPro 48,000 grain water softener uses 9 pounds of salt per regeneration. 
Takes 365 days per year and divide by the days of regeneration. 365 divided by 5 =  73 regeneration per year x the amount of salt per regeneration. 73 x 9 = 657 pounds of salt per year.  Salt pellets are generally sold in 40 pound bags at a average cost of $6.28 after tax per bag.
657 pounds divided by 40 pound bags = 16 bags of salt per year is what a SoftPro water softener will us based on averages. this is a operating cost of $100.48 per year (8.37 per month )
Fleck operating cost per year: $320.28
SoftPro operating cost per year : $100.48
 
Water savings based on the calculations given:
SoftPro  saves 45 gallons of water per regeneration over a fleck water softener x 91 regeneration = 4,095 gallons of water saver per year
According to date on link below it looks like average the average water bill for a famaily of 4 using 100 gallons per day per person = 400 gallons per day (  12,166 gallons per month )  is $52.94 per month.  = a average cost per gallon of water .02 cents per gallon of water.
SoftPro saves a average of 4095 gallons of waste water over a fleck water softener per year.
4095 gallons saved x .02 cents per gallon = $81.90 per year savings ( savings of $1,228.00 over the life of the system )
A SoftPro high efficiency up flow water softener will save you up to $4,525.80 over the average lifetime of a water softener ( 15 years is average )  This is a average savings of $25.15 per month over a Fleck water softener.

The SoftPro water softeners cost more than the Fleck water softeners but save on operating expenses in the long run, more than making up for the initial price difference.
