What Others Say:

We had very little experience with water systems, but we knew we needed a softener. Our builder recommended Premier Water. We got very good service, and they helped us understand all of our options. The water hardness is gone – it even tastes better.

Chanhassen, MN

We had hard water and needed a softener. The Premier Water staff was very friendly and had VERY quick service. The new system uses so little salt, and our water is perfectly soft. No more rashes on our kids, and we use a lot less soap! Thanks!

Chaska, MN

The water is just great! My family and I really like the feeling of soft water on our skin, and it is great for our dishes. Thank you!

Maple Grove, MN

Thank you for the good service and the great price on our new water softener. What a night and day difference it has made. I re-washed a lot of items in the cupboard that were cloudy and in one wash they were crystal clear again. That sure proved to me this new softener is doing a great job. I may have to upgrade my other two homes in the future! Thanks again.

Plymouth, MN

Our Surge water softener flooded our house with resin. We wanted a new softener that would let us run the appliances at the same time and still have good water pressure. We appreciate how knowledgeable your staff was and the excellent service we got. We are very satisfied.

Plymouth, MN

Our Fleck 5600 stopped working after 12 years and required many repairs. We had a good water testing experience, and product information. The new softener we chose made our water so much softer.

Plymouth, MN

We bought our house as a foreclosure, and the previous GE system was shot. The water in the house was bad. We chose the ProMate 6.5 as it had excellent performance and a very competitive price, and an RO system for better drinking water. Your company had really good service, and we would definitely recommend you to anyone.

Shorewood, MN

We had been in our house for 3 years before our 1950’s Servisoft water softener began leaking all over the basement floor. We had Premier out to determine if we could repair this old system, but soon realized it wasn’t serviceable. We chose the Hellenbrand ProMate 6.5 softener and already notice softer skin and better hair.

St Louis Park, MN

Our new water softener is great. It is quite amazing at how little salt I now go through.


Premier Water was very friendly, helpful and flexible. They gave us a wide variety of options based on our needs. The installation and orientation on the use of the product was excellent. Will work with them again in the future.

upflow water softener

Upflow Regeneration Technology

The EcoMax uses advanced upflow regeneration technology for huge efficiency savings over standard water softeners.

Once standard systems run out of capacity, they inject salt into the top of the tank which flows down unevenly in the path of least resistance towards a small cone at the bottom. Roughly 40% of the salt can be wasted in the “hard water pocket” at the top of the tank.

The EcoMax injects salt from the bottom, and a special, full-width Plate helps push the water up evenly through the tank for better cleaning, and a much more efficient regeneration.

Benefits include:

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

Superior Flow Technology

The EcoMax uses a patented Distributor Plate for a massive improvement over conventional water softeners and filters.

Standard systems pull water in the path of least resistance unevenly through the tank down towards a small cone. This reduces the resin or media’s effectiveness, and results in uneven buildup that is much harder to clean out.

The Distributor Plate runs the full width and pull water evenly through the tank for balanced loading, and a much more efficient regeneration.

Benefits include:

  • 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.

Standard water softeners have a weak backwash that simply 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 and sends a powerful circular flow through the resin bed. This aggressive flushing knocks out debris for superior resin cleaning.

The 9 cycle EcoMax controller accurately measures and records your water usage for the past 63 days. This smart control feature automatically adjusts the reserve capacity to make sure that you never run out of soft water.
