RainSoft EC5 water conditioning systems are available in various configurations with numerous features to fit your needs. Ask your RainSoft dealer to recommend the EC5 water softening system that’s right for you.
The EC5 Series comprise RainSoft’s premium, computer controlled water conditioners. Built to last a lifetime, EC5 water conditioners provide dependable performance and an abundant supply of luxuriously softened water throughout your home. The EC5 provides real-time system status notifications for low salt, loss of power and power restored, service reminders for filter changes, and other useful reminders. These notifications are provided on both the system display as well as the RainSoft Remind® app. They come standard with a smart-feature microprocessor controller that handles thousands of computations per second and responds in real time to your family’s home water treatment needs. The computer control keeps track of the water used in the home, and regenerates itself based upon actual water usage. This saves both water, salt, and electricity.
Softens, conditions and filters your water to remove calcium and magnesium – the two primary components of hard water.
Step 1: Downflow Conditioning:
Untreated water flows through the filter media where hardness-causing minerals are removed.
Step 2: Upflow Backwash:
The conditioning resin bed is “fluffed” to separate solids from the media.
Step 3: Downflow Brining:
The system injects the exact amount of brine (salt water) made from filtered water needed for full-strength regeneration of the system.
Step 4: Slow Downflow Brine Rinse:
Slow rinsing of the brine through the filter media provides a deep rinsing action to make sure all traces of salt are removed from the media bed.
Step 5: Fast Downflow Rinse:
Fast downflow rinse repacks the media, assuring maximum resin efficiency while removing any salt residue and any remaining traces of rust and iron.
