Automatic Water Softening Systems
Excessive hardness in water due to high levels of calcium carbonate will cause scale buildup on pipes and particularly water heating elements. Also there will be difficulty getting soap and detergents to lather. All these problems can be eliminated efficiently and automatically using an Autotrol Water Softener. These utilise the ion exchange process where the calcium is replaced with the more soluble sodium. This is all done automatically using a timer control which allows the water softener resin bed to backwash and regenerate with a brine solution as required.
Automatic High Flow Carbon Systems
Carbon filters are used to remove or reduce a variety of contaminants from water. Activated carbon* filters are particularly good at removing chlorine, tastes, odours, pesticides, volatile and organic carbons, dissolved colour and chloramines.
Where it is necessary to treat all incoming water [point of entry - POE], the High Flow Carbon Series presents the best cost effective solution to handle the much higher flow rates and provide a longer life throughput.
With automatic back-flushing, the need for maintenance is all but eliminated. Replenish carbon annually or when chlorine, taste, odours or targeted contaminants start to break through.

Automatic Nitrate Removal System
Water treatment system designed to reduce nitrates in water. It comes in a range of sizes to suit households, farms and water discharge.
De-Ionisers (not automatic)
De-ionisation is a physical process which uses specially-manufactured ion exchange resins which bind to and filter out the mineral salts from water. As the majority of water impurities are dissolved salts, de-ionisation produces a high purity water that is generally similar to distilled water, and this process is quick and without the problems associated with scale build up.
Neutralising Systems/Up-Flow pH (not automatic)
A pH corrector or Neutraliser is an in-line system designed to correct the pH of the water to a neutral pH (7.0)
Low pH makes water very acidic and aggressive towards metal plumbing and fittings. This is often results in high levels of metals such as copper, iron, zinc dissolving into the water. This can cause a bitter metallic taste and usually leaves green/blue staining on baths and basins. Failure of fittings is also very common because of this corrosion with copper hot water cylinders being most at risk.
All of these problems can easily be corrected by using a pH neutralising filter which allows acidic water to flow through a bed of naturally occurring calcium carbonate media known as Calcite. This elevates the pH in a natural and safe way without the addition of any chemicals.
