The easy to follow programming allows different hardness settings to be stored, together with an intelligent meter system that learns from your water consumption, makes this a very efficient machine.
All EMWC Water Softeners have a five year guarantee at no extra cost! Because of its proven reliability, your EMWC water softener will have a fiveyear parts and one year labour guarantee. This, alongside our proven track record for producing highly reliable equipment, has established us as one of the UK's most popular water softener companies.
METER MODELS INCLUDING SELF PROTECT PROGRAMME
Our Meter range works by measuring the amount of water used and then regenerating accordingly, If you have guests or your requirements increase (or decrease!), then the softener will adjust its regenerations accordingly (self-protect programme.) Alternatively, if you go away, you can set the machine to a default setting to regenerate when you return. As our meter models regenerate only when necessary, they are ideal for applications with varying demand. The amount of salt and water can be reduced by as much as 50% compared to timer models.
ECONOMIC AND EFFICIENT
This EMWC Water Softener is very efficient in water use. It uses over 50% less water than a conventional softener during regeneration.
Solvent free - food grade resin. Remember when you were told never to drink softened water? There's something very special about an EMWC Water Softener, something that is unique and gives both incomparable performance and specification. The secret is in the resin that determines the quality of your soft water. All EMWC Water Softeners incorporate a resin that has been specially purified for household use. It is both food grade and free from chlorinated solvents (solvent free). No other manufacturer can offer you this level of specification. So whether you bath in it, shower in it, wash your hair in it, your clothes, or simply brush your teeth with it, the water from your EMWC Water Softener will not only be lovely and soft, but solvent free.
The AQ8 Softener uses a high capacity resin which allows for larger volumes of soft water to be produced before requiring regeneration. This new resin technology also allows much higher flow rates than any of our previous high flow systems.Because of this new development we are able offer a very compact water softener with capacity and flow rates that are the envy of much larger machines.
