If you are comparing electric with non electric softeners there is a lot of information out there, please watch our video that shows the differences in the two types in the market.

Essentially it is not only the electric components on an electric machine that can fail but because it works with only one cylinder it can not clean itself and supply your home with softened water at the same time, so it lets hard water get into your home, loosing the key benefits that you get from true softened water.

Electric machines can try and get around this by using timers so it regenerates at night time, but if the capacity is reached during the daytime hard water will enter the home until it gets to clean itself in the night, or if you have been away all day the electric machine will regenerate at night when it really doesn’t need to, continuing to work whilst you are on holiday wasting water and salt. The beauty of what we provide is our water softener work by using water pressure so if a tap isn’t running the water softener will not continue to work, so there is nothing to think about if you are away from the home or on holiday.

Twin Cylinder benefits

The two cylinders allows the water softener to clean itself once the capacity has been met whilst the other cylinder still supplies your home, this means you get softened water 24/7.

  • No timer to set
  • No clock to adjust
  • No heavy bags of tablet salt
  • No costly maintenance contracts
  • No lengthly operation manuals
  • No water waste
  • No hard water entering your system
