OVERVIEW

Benefits of a Filtration and Softener Combo System

Chlorine and hard water can cause double the trouble for the water in your home and water-using appliances. Common effects of one or both of these common problems are: dry, itchy skin when you get out of the shower, soap scum and scale build up on your appliances, premature breakdown of water-using appliances, and more. With the dual-tank action of the Carbon Filter and Water Softener Alternative Combo System, we’ve set the new standard for home water management in every room that your water flows. This easy-to-use, all-in-one system reduces the chemical taste and odor of chlorine and also reduces hard water effects. And, unlike traditional salt-based softeners, this salt-free alternative improves your water experience without the hassle or maintenance of salt refills. Pentair recommends that you test your water for hardness levels before purchasing a salt-free softener alternative, to be sure the NaturSoft technology is right for your home water. Other benefits of this combination system include:

  • Generates zero waste water and requires no electricity to operate
  • Comes with a 5 micron prefilter to reduce sediment and debris from your water
  • Help the environment by never needing to buy bottled water again with great tasting water right in your home
  • Dual Certified Performance: NSF/ANSI
  • Durable stainless steel design
  • DVGW certified to be 99.6% effective at reducing hard water effects

How it works

cut out image of system, 1 on prefilter, 2 toward top of first filter tank, 3 towards middle of first filter tank, 4 on second filter tank

5 Micron Prefilter System

The prefilter system reduces debris, sand, silt, and sediment in the water supply down to 5 microns in size (that’s 20 times smaller than a human hair). The prefilter helps protect plumbing and appliances from excess sediment, increasing their effectiveness. With average use, the prefilter will last approximately 6-9 months before needing to be replaced.

Catalytic Granular Activated Carbon Media (GAC)

Pentair uses a high-grade mesh blend of coconut shell based activated carbons in its whole house carbon filters. The carbon media is designed to filter common water contaminants like chlorine, chloramines, industrial solvents, and many more.

Copper and Zinc Oxidation Media

Reduction chlorine and extends the GAC carbon’s life.

Water Softener Alternative

The final stage conditions hard water without the use of salt, making it virtually maintenance free. These softeners neutralize the mineral ions causing your hard water, instead of removing them, which keeps the good stuff in and the bad stuff out, and reduces the formation of scale on appliances. The media contains nucleation sites that initiate formation of calcium and magnesium crystals on the media reducing the dissolved “hard” minerals from the water and as a result, the scaling potential. The movement of water and friction among the media granules rubbing against each other cause fragments of the newly grown crystal structures to be fragmented off the media and released into the passing water.

Beyond taste and odor, the volatile chemical nature of chlorine means it can react and form potentially harmful byproducts. But, how much chlorine is ‘safe’?

Learn about Chlorine

Chloramine is a disinfectant that consists of five parts chlorine and one part ammonia. So, in a sense, it’s kind of “chlorine plus.” Find out how it gets into your water and how you can treat it.
