How an EC4 water conditioning system works:
Step 1. Downflow Conditioning:Untreated water flows through the filter media where hardness-causing minerals and iron 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.
Step 6. Treated Brine Makeup Refill:A precise, preset quantity of filtered water is used to make a clean brine solution for regeneration; other brands use raw, unconditioned water to clean the media bed.
