The product is meant to eliminate hard water through a process of ion exchange, where calcium and magnesium are gotten rid of rendering the water soft. This increases the soap efficiency of the water and reduces scale build-up. A high capacity resin is used in this system, ensuring a long service life of the equipment. Also, the system uses meter based regeneration process that ensures that the water used is measured and the system only regenerates when it needs to and if the water needs to increase the system regenerates more often to keep up.
