Water Softeners - Timer Controlled Vs Meter Controlled


The resin bed inside a water softener requires regenerating frequently to flush out the calcium and magnesium removed from the water during the service run and to recharge it with sodium ready for the next run.

The timer or meter included with your softener determines how regularly this regeneration process is carried out.

A timer controlled softener is designed to regenerate the resin bed after a preset amount of time has elapsed (between 1 and 12 days) whereas a meter controlled softener regenerates when a specified amount of water (this can vary greatly depending on your softener's capacity water and water hardness) has passed through the system.

If you are uncertain which type of water softener is best suited to your requirements then please call us on 01704 531556 and we will be happy to offer advice.
