The Twin Tank Advantage

No Wasted Capacity
Standard water softeners need up to 30% “reserve capacity” to avoid running out of soft water when you have a spike in demand. In the real world, 17% of total capacity is never used – but it still gets cleaned with salt during regeneration.

Our Twin Tank Water Softener uses 100% capacity. No more wasteful reserve. No more running out of soft water when you have that random heavy laundry day!

More Effective
Studies show soft water improves cleaning power in dishwashers – the same is true in water softeners.

The 2nd tank provides soft water for your home + soft water for rinsing and cleaning the 1st tank once capacity is reached. Single Tank Softeners have to clean with raw hard water. Soft water regeneration works better – hands down!

Upflow water softener regeneration

High Efficiency Regeneration

Upflow regeneration technology gives our Twin Tank Water Softener added efficiency savings over standard Water Softeners.

Standard Softeners clean from the top down. Up to 40% of salt is wasted when it hits the “hard water pocket” above the resin. That’s not very efficient!

The EcoMax Duo cleans from the bottom up. A special, full-width Distributor Plate helps push salt water up into the resin – right where it’s needed. You get better cleaning, and more efficient regeneration with less water and salt.

Upflow Regeneration Benefits:

  • 40% less salt used to regenerate
  • Resin bed stays cleaner, and lasts longer
  • Eliminates salt waste in hard water “freeboard”

Superior Flow Technology

Water flows in the path of least resistance.

Most Water Softeners use a cone with very little surface area to direct water through the tank. This results in uneven flow with more hardness collecting in the middle of the tank. This reduces softening effectiveness. Heavy buildup is also much harder to remove, and requires more salt.

Our Distributor Plates run the full width of the tank. Water flows evenly through the tank. You get balanced loading, more usable capacity, and better regeneration.

Distributor Plate Benefits:

  • 15% more usable capacity
  • 30% less water required for backwash
  • 40% less pressure drop across system

Enhanced Cleaning System

If resin bead pores plug up with Hard Water, Iron, or dirt, they lose their functionality. For resin to stay clean, it needs to backwash and flush out this foreign material.

The cone distributor in most Softeners delivers a weak backwash – water slowly rises up through the resin bed (like blowing bubbles in a glass of milk with a straw).

The Distributor Plate acts like an agitator in a laundry machine. Circular water flow blasts through the resin bed. This aggressive flushing knocks out debris for superior resin cleaning.

Smart System Controls

Non-electric softeners with fixed mechanical gears are like Frankenstein – they have no brain! Our Twin Tank Water Softener is run by a user-friendly digital controller. 9 optional cleaning cycles allow us to fine-tune the system to your water quality – even if it changes.
