The CITY Series Softeners have a large whole house activated carbon filter in addition to a softener resin tank. This provides not only softened water but the removal of chlorine and ammonia. You have the advantage of luxurious soft water that is free of the obnoxious smell and taste of chlorine. The removal of chlorine also greatly lengthens the life of the softener. High levels of chlorine damages the softener resin and internal rubber seals over time. Since activated carbon has a shorter life than softener resin it must be replaced every 5 to 7 years. This system makes that extremely easy. Merely detach the carbon tank and slide a new one in place.
The CTX water softener system includes a brine (salt) tank and a resin (media) tank with a backwashing control valve. Incoming water flows into the control valve and is directed down through the carbon and then the ion exchange softening resin. The carbon absorbs chlorine to remove taste and odor and to protect the softener resin. The softener resin exchanges the hardness ions for softer ions. The softened water then returns to the control valve where it is directed into the service lines. The CTX Series water softener/filter is designed to be installed on chlorinated municipal water supplies.
