Salt-Free Water Softener
Crystal Quest® Saltl-Free Water Softener is a new technology which transforms the calcium (hardness) of the water into mechanically stable and heat resistant calcite crystals (nanometer size) which no longer cause lime deposits. The calcium is simply rinsed away.
Calcium (hardness) creates scale in pipes, on appliances and other plumbing surfaces. This leads to higher heating and energy costs and expensive repairs to appliances. Scale can also be a source for bacteria to grow, which can be a health concern in drinking water applications. It also removes the already existing scale from pipes and heat exchanger surfaces (descaling effect) and further protects the system from future formation of scale (scale protection effect).
Removal of Existing Calcium Deposits
The calcium crystals which are rinsed away by the water cannot attach to any surfaces but, due to the nanostructure of the crystals, they have a function similar to the Crystal Quest® Eagle® Anti-Scale Media. It binds additional calcium to itself and therefore breaks the grid binding structure of the calcium deposits. The result is that even after a short time large pieces of deposits are removed. This process continues until the surface is free from deposits.
Formation of a Corrosion-Preventing Layer
After the old calcium deposits are removed, a 30- to 80-micron thick corrosion-preventing layer is formed. This layer forms because of the reaction of the nano surface of the crystals and the metallic surface of the pipes. This is comparable to the green layer of verdigris on a copper roof. As soon as the protective layer is formed it can no longer grow bigger, but it creates complete protection.
Water travels through 4 stages of filtration:
- Stage 1: water travels through a 20" sediment cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand and dirt. Also this extends the life of water filters and prevents damage to control valves or pumps.
Stage 2: Water flows through the Eaglesorb Anti-Scale media tank.
- Stage 3: water travels through a 20" solid carbon cartridge for a final conditioning of the water and removing any remaining volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC's, insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents) that may be in the water.*
- Stage 4: Water passes through a 20” 0.2 micron ultrafiltration (UF) membrane.
*If present in the water
Similar to the concept of Reverse Osmosis, only Ultrafiltration uses a different membrane to remove viruses & retain larger particles up to 0.2-micron size.
Softener media may be required as a pretreatment for anti-scale in some hard waters. With a softener you will totally eliminate the use of salt and wasted water that comes along with backwashing, while still providing your home with comfortable, soft-feeling water. Used as an alternative to salt-based softeners, Eaglesorb ES3 scale control media prevents the negative effects of calcium and magnesium while allowing the positive health benefits to remain.
Pre-treatment is required for iron, manganese, copper, oil, chloride, hydrogen sulfide, phosphate and chlorine above 3 PPM.
**Additional media is required for every 5 grains of hardness over 25 grains. Consult a water specialist for recommendation.
CRYSTAL QUEST® Whole House water filters are simple, User friendly, easy to program, dependable, fully shipped with filtration media already in the tank. WE DO NOT ship filtration media separately for our customers to pour in. The system connects to the main line of your home and filters all the incoming water to it. It requires a nearby power outlet and drain source (usually the washing machine drain). We ship complete and ready to be plumbed in.
