Timer Based Water Softeners regenerate based on the amount of time that has passed since the last regeneration. Timer based system have an advantage over meter based system if you do not use enough water to make the softener regenerate at least every two weeks. It is helpful for the softener to regenerate in order to clean the resin and remove dirt that can become trapped in the bed.
Meter Based Water Softeners regenerate based on the amount of water used since the last regeneration. Meter based system have an advantage over time based system because if you dont end up using the water you think you would then a timer system can regenerate before it is needed wasting regeneration salt. Also you use more water then you expected in a timer system, you may find that the water becomes hard. To set the meter you simply match the number of people in your house and the grains of hardness in your water.
Microprocessor controlled softener offer advantages to the other softeners. These softeners will regenerate based on time or on a meter and as with all softeners, manually. Another advantage is that is you go away, have the softener in metered mode and dont use water, then the system will regenerate on a time basis to help keep your softener clean. If a softener sits too long without being used it will grow some bacteria. The Meter/Time mode helps to keeps bacteria at bay.
Manual softeners are perfect for commercial use or for use when you dont have a drain for a permanent hook up. If you dont have a drain you can hook a garden hose to the back of it and initiate the regeneration only when you need to. When it is done, simply remove the hose and you are done.
Filtersorb systems are not intended for use in a residential setting. They work best with applications that have consistent flow rates. These devices are perfect for feeding boilers and other commercial and industrial applications.
