Ecosoft FK 1018 CAB CE filter is intended for reduction of iron, manganese, hardness, ammonium and organic matter in water. This filter with modern design is suitable for water purification in 1 bathroom apartment, inhabited by 1-2 residents.  

The filter represents a compact cabinet with a vessel containing Ecomix® advanced softening material and a control valve in it. The cabinet has also a brine system installed for regeneration (restoration of the resource) of the filter media. The tablet salt for regeneration is poured directly into the cabinet body.

The unique control valve is a product developed by Ecosoft and produced by Clack Corporation (USA). It provides filter’s independent service, keeps constant reserve of purified water and doesn’t require any special attention.

Components of the filter

  • Filter vessel type ‘cabinet’ with modern design

  • Clack WS1 СЕ multifunctional control valve (USA)

  • Ecomix® advanced softening material (Ecosoft, Ukraine)

The filter independently controls all processes of its operation. When the filter media is exhausted, the filter independently starts regeneration, but only when water consumption is minimal, in order not to limit consumer’s access to the purified water. Besides, the system remembers the intensity of consumer’s water consumption at different times and adapts to make the clean water available even during peak consumption — at weekends, for instance.

The filter is connected to the cold tap water supply. Water pre-cleaned from sediments enters the filter vessel filled with Ecomix® advanced softening material. Ecomix® consists of five components that are self-classified into layers inside the filter during the regeneration. Water gradually flows through each layer which sequentially reduce the content of iron, manganese, organic matter and hardness. Purified water is supplied to consumer through the riser pipe of the filter vessel.

After exhaustion of the filter media, the control valve switches the filter to the regeneration mode. Regeneration of the filter media is divided into 5 clearly predetermined stages that are carried out by the valve independently. The first stage is the backwash intended to wash out compounds of iron and manganese from the filter media. Then the brine solution is supplied from the brine tank to the filter vessel to pass through Ecomix®. As a result, hardness and organic matter are washed out and together with the remains of solution are discharged to sewers. The next stage (3) represents a short backwashing that ploughs up the filter media again and washes out the remains of brine solution. After regeneration, washing of the media is carried out with direct water flow (stage 4) for filter layers to self-classify in a correct order. The last stage (5) represents filling the brine tank with water to dissolve the tablet salt and preparation of the solution for next regeneration. After this, the filter can be used again for water purification.



Due to application of the multifunctional valve, the filter does not require constant attention. The only important task connected to maintenance for customer is timely refilling of the salt. It will ensure efficient regeneration of the filter media and thus durable filter service life and water quality.

If any problem arises, the valve will inform about the problem at the display with a text message containing contact information of service center.
