The Basics of How a Water Softener Works
1. Hard water passes though a control unit into the resin vessel.
2. Calcium and Magnesium constituents of water hardness are attached to the Sodium saturated resin beads usually sulphonated polystyrene.
3. This simultaneously releases Sodium ions and water hardness is
eliminated. The process is called ion exchange.
4. When the resin becomes saturated with Calcium and Magnesium it is recharged by passing a salt solution through the resin.

How CalSoft Metered Works
The CalSoft Metered water softener has been specifically designed with the UK’s increasing family homes in mind.
With an increasing number of new homes being plumbed in 22mm or with combination boilers then it is essential that the home owner is not caught out by
purchasing the incorrect water softener. This is why we have developed a product that is suitable for both 15mm and 22mm installations – the only difference is the actual installation kit.
Important Information: Water Authority bylaws require that one tap in the house remains unsoftened. It is also recommended that the garden tap is left with a hard water supply. Here at Buyaparcel we have have a comprehensive range of modern and contemporary drinking water taps.
The Calmag CalSoft Metered unit is compact and has been designed to fit underneath a single kitchen cupboard if required and comes with its own salt bucket to ensure that salt encrustations do not develop around the mechanics of the unit – this is one area that is often overlooked with other units.
Includes Salt Bucket unlike other units.
The Calmag CalSoft Metered is extremely water efficient and does work on a joint regeneration and cleansing cycle which not only recharges the resin bed but cleanses it from sediment contamination & chlorine particles.
The Calmag CalSoft Metered also has the added benefit of a greater salt saving mechanism.
The electronics are easy to operate but we have ensured that with the factory settings then it is not necessary for any adjustments when initially installed and the only adjustment that may be required is to set the water hardness level – an operation that takes a maximum of 30 seconds.
The accuracy of the factory settings avoid the necessity for any adjustments when the unit is initially installed – the only adjustment that may be rewired is setting the
water hardness level.
