A Lakeside Water softener consists of a pressure vessel filled with resin. Located on top of the pressure vessel is a control valve. All of this is mounted in a mistral cabinet. The mains water is passed through the control valve and down into the vessel. As the water passes across the resin bed, the calcium and magnesium attach to the resin so that the water leaving the unit is soft.
Periodically depending on how much water has been used, the resin needs to be refreshed. This is done by flushing a small amount of salt water through the resin vessel. This normally occurs at 2am while you sleep. Once this process has been completed the resin is refreshed and ready to begin again.
Lakeside Salt Saver (Mistral) 919 Cabinet - Electric1-8 Persons - H:680mm x W:275mm x D:480mmFREE Delivery on This Item - How it works – basically, the Lakeside Salt Saver consists of a pressure vessel filled with Ion exchange resin. It’s a single vessel product. Located at the top of the pressure vessel is the control valve and all of this is mounted into a cabinet. The water that is to be softened is passed through the control valve and into the vessel. As the water is passed across the resin, the calcium and magnesium attaches itself to the resin, ensuring that all of the water leaving the softener is soft. After a certain amount of water has been softened, the resin becomes exhausted and needs to be replenished, this is done by adding a small amount of salt solution which is flushed through the resin bed, it removes the calcium and magnesium from the resin and flushes it away to drain, a small amount of fresh water is then flushed through the system to remove any excess salt. This replenishment is known as the regeneration and at the end of this process the resin is ready to soften again.
The Salt Saver being a metered softener works on volumetric usage and will regenerate on metered control as and when required. Working in this way, the applications that suite the salt saver the best are where usage is varied and requires less control. Every softener has some pressure loss through it, the reason being is that the resin needs time to exchange the scale and scum (calcium and magnesium) for sodium ions (salt solution) – hence ion exchange takes place. It is expected that pressure loss through most water softeners will be upto 15 psi – 1 bar, Check the specification sheet for further details.
The Salt Saver is very easy to install if you are competent at DIY. The system comes with instructions and a fitting kit 15mm as standard. (22mm and 28mm kits are available for Combination Boiler Applications or Pressurized Systems – Available on request).
