No. Soft water is soft water. You cannot adjust the level of impurities being removed from the water.
Make sure the water softener (or refiner) is receiving power. Assuming the softener is getting power, it might be the strength of the signal to the remote. Try moving the remote to different locations in your home. If you continue to have problems, contact your Axis Water Technologies.
It is normal to have water in the bottom of your salt tank. If there is more than five inches, or if you suspect a leak, contact your Axis Water Technologies, who will assess the situation.
After filling the salt, you must set the salt level on the display screen. Note the level number along the inside wall of the salt tank. Then follow the menu instructions on your softener display screen to set the salt level number.
An Axis Water Technologies’ softener or refiner is very efficient, so you might not go through as much salt as another brand used. If you feel like your water isn’t soft, and the level of salt is not decreasing at all, consult your Axis Water Technologies.
The right product for your home is determined by testing your water, considering how many people are living in your home, understanding your normal water usage, taking into account the number of bathrooms you have, understanding the water-using appliances in your home, etc. Authorized Axis Water Technologies are water treatment professionals trained to understand your family’s needs and determine the right product for your home.
One of the biggest misconceptions about water softeners is that the salt is what softens your water. What actually softens the water are the thousands of resin beads inside your softener that filter out hard water minerals.
Your authorized Axis Water Technologies can evaluate your water and recommend a water softener system or whole home filtration systems customized to treat your home’s water. The benefits include:
A study released at WQA Aquatech USA indicates “that the use of efficiently operated water softeners improves septic tank performance, while the use of very inefficiently operated water softeners may have a negative effect on solids discharge to the drain field and the level of impact will depend on the level of hardness in the water, whether the regeneration waste is discharged to the septic tank, and the amount of excess sodium present in regeneration waste.”
The Water Quality research Foundation commissioned Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University to conduct this independent study in 2012 which resulted in an official report, “Changes in Septic Tank Effluent Due to Water Softener Use.” Two different approaches were taken to conduct this study; one in a laboratory setting and the other looked at case studies conducted in the field.
Most municipalities treat water by using chlorine to kill bacteria. Some might even soften the water, but only to meet minimum requirements. That doesn’t mean it is ideal for your family.
An Axis Water Technologies’ water refiner softens your family’s water by removing the hardness minerals and sediments that weren’t removed by the municipality, and it also removes the chlorine taste and odor.
An Axis Water Technologies’ water softener system removes the impurities in your water so your skin is rinsed without hard water minerals left behind. There is no residue on your skin to trap traces of soap, dead skin cells and other particles. And no residue left behind that dries your skin. The slippery, softness you feel is exactly how clean skin is supposed to feel.
The same way that soft water eliminates water spots that dry onto your glassware and silverware, it allows your bath soaps to lather better and rinse off thoroughly. Soaps will lather better and you’ll be able to use half as much.
Hard water is water that has a high mineral content. It’s a natural result of minerals like calcium and magnesium accumulating during the water cycle, and it can happen with well water and even city water. The more calcium and magnesium dissolved in the water, the harder the water becomes. This is why certain cities and counties within the same state can have varying degrees of water hardness.
A water softener system treats your water at the point it enters the home. It removes these hardness impurities before the water travels through your pipes and into your water-using appliances, and before you draw water from the taps of your bathrooms and kitchen. Soft water is less than 1 gpg, whereas hard water is anything above 7gpg. Over 85% of households live in hard water areas.
Axis Water Technologies’ whole home filtration systems offer you a water softener system and reverse osmosis drinking water system, creating the healthiest water for all uses.
Ask your Axis Water Technologies about what you are experiencing. You could be due for a filter change. Or maybe something has changed with your water, and it will be better served by a different type of filter cartridge in your drinking water system. A conversation with your Axis Water Technologies is your safest bet in finding a solution.
Your authorized Axis Water Technologies can talk to you about how often the filters need to be changed, based on your home’s water and your water use. Talk to your Axis Water Technologies about service program options that might include routine filter replacements.
Ordinary tap water can contain dissolved metals, such as iron or lead. It might contain chlorine, nitrates and mineral salts. Or it could have sulfates, mercury, asbestos or arsenic in it. A reverse osmosis water treatment system from Axis Water Technologies reduces more than 95% of dissolved solids, including many harmful contaminants.
Axis Water Technologies offers a microbiological drinking water purification system that is certified to reduce 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.99% of viruses and 99.95% cysts, such as giardia and cryptosporidia.
The quality of your home’s water may meet local standards, but it might not meet your own. Reverse osmosis drinking water purification systems are usually used in the kitchen, where you are most apt to get your drinking water, and where you prepare all of your food and beverages. You need the healthiest and best tasting water available.
Also, the methods used to treat municipal water – including chlorine – could be impacting the smell and taste of your mixed beverages and your cooking. A drinking water system provides bottled water quality, without the bottled water price paid at the store and at the recycling center.
While most homeowners may never encounter scary-sounding contaminants like toxaphene and trichloroethylene, there are several common water problems to be on the lookout for in the home:
Yes. CHC does not rely on chemicals to provide excellent water treatment. Because the blowdown from CHC-treated system is chemical free, it may be re-used for a number of non-potable applications pending local regulation. CHC customers use blowdown for irrigation, green roofs, landscape ponds, or simply discharge to storm drains to avoid sewer charges.
The remarkable cleanliness of a CHC-treated system is due to our superior filter offering. CHC combines industry-leading centrifugal separation with a stainless-steel mesh screen to filter both heavier and lighter-than-water particles. Our filtration solution also uses self-cleaning filters to eliminate the need to change media, bags or cartridges.
CHC is focused on water conservation. While other solutions sometimes require virgin water for filter backwashing; our systems are engineered to utilize blowdown water only for this purpose.
Our filter systems also include a proprietary intake manifold and sweeper system, which directs dirt and debris away from process intakes and toward filter suction.
CHC technology precipitates scale before it reaches heat transfer surfaces. Our filtration system removes this scale from the cooling water. Physically removing scale allows towers to operate at higher cycles for concentration, which saves water.
Filtration also removes dirt and debris that collects in open cooling systems. Clean systems run more efficiently and consume significantly less energy. Sediment deposits can often result in microbiologically-induced corrosion (MIC) as anaerobic bacteria can corrode tower metals causing leaks, loss of water and additional biological fouling.
We currently treat systems from 200 to 15,000 tons. The recent introduction of the CHC ‘Mini’ provides an economical and reliable solution for systems down to 20 tons.
CHC can treat systems across a wide range of water qualities, and provides excellent scale control in hard water environments.
The CHC technology is completely different from magnets, electromagnetic, or electrochemical systems. Our patented Controlled Hydrodynamic Cavitation technology physically removes calcium carbonate (scale) from the water, kills bacteria, and elevates pH to minimize corrosion.
Cavitation is the dynamic formation and collapse of microbubbles in a fluid. The bubbles collapse through a violent process, creating an acoustic shockwave, visible light, and forcing a shift in the chemical equilibrium of calcium bicarbonate. At the point of total collapse, the temperature of the vapor within the bubble may be several thousand degrees Fahrenheit, and the pressure several hundred atmospheres, releasing enough energy to destroy bacteria.
Axis Water Technologies’ CHC achieves Controlled Hydrodynamic Cavitation by forcing water through a pair of patented horizontally opposed nozzles. This harnesses the energy of the cavitation process and directs it into the water stream as opposed to material surfaces. It is this controlled energy that is the heart of the Axis Water Technologies’ CHC solution for scale, fouling and corrosion control.
We believe that through shared decision making we will successfully meet all water quality challenges. We are here to serve our customers in a manner that they will have total confidence and satisfaction in Axis Water Technologies from the office staff, sales staff, installation staff, and our service technicians.
