SERVICE: Automatic regeneration
OPERATING MODE: With a stop for regeneration

Ecosoft FU 1465CE filter is intended for water softening, suitable for a cottage with 4-5 bathrooms houses, inhabited by 6 to 8 residents.

The filter represents a vessel filled with the Dowex ion-exchange resin, a multifunctional control valve and a brine tank for resin regeneration.

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.

Key advantages:

  • Fully automatic and noise-free

  • Clean and soft water every day

  • Durable and efficient operation during no less than 5 years

  • Cost-effective salt consumption and low volume of discharge

  • Quality guaranteed by the international CE and ISO certificates

Benefits of using filtered water:

  • Silky skin and healthy hair

  • Shining sanitary ware and utensils

  • Condition and colors of clothes and linens are preserved

  • Significant savings on detergents – up to 50%

  • Longer service life of equipment with heating elements (washing machine, dishwasher, boiler and kettle)

  • Cost-cutting up to 30% for electricity

Components of the filter:

  • Filter vessel

  • Clack WS1 СЕ multifunctional control valve (USA)

  • Brine tank with brine system for regeneration

  • Dowex ion-exchange resin (Dow Chemical, USA)

The filter is connected to the cold water supply. Water pre-cleaned from sediment particles enters the filter vessel filled with ion-exchange resin. Water passes through the resin layer which reduces hardness of the water. Purified water is supplied to consumer through the riser pipe of the filter vessel.

After the resin is exhausted, and can no longer absorb the ions of hardness, the control valve switches the filter to regeneration mode. For user’s convenience, the valve settings are programmed so that the filter is regenerated at the time when water is not consumed.

Regeneration of the filter media is divided into 4 clearly predetermined stages that are carried out by the valve independently. The first stage - the filter is backwashed in order to plough up the filter media and wash out sediment particles from it. Then the brine solution is supplied from the brine tank to the filter vessel to pass through resin. As a result, hardness salts are washed out, and together with the remains of solution are discharged to sewers. At the end of the regeneration, the resin is washed with a direct stream of water (step 3) to wash out remains of brine solution. The last stage (4) is filling the brine tank with water to dissolve the tablet salt and preparing the solution for the next regeneration. After that, the filter can be again used for water purification.

Thanks to the use of a multifunctional valve, the filter does not require constant attention. The only important task connected to maintenance for customer is timely stocking 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.
