How do I choose a water conditioner?
It is crucial to choose the right water conditioner to get results. Selecting the wrong size conditioner including using a larger diameter than needed can compromise water delivery and affect treatment quality.
Water conditioners size is selected based on the amount of water flowing through them. Check the flow rate of the incoming water and match this to the relevant water conditioner:
- 1-15L/min – Single Point Water Conditioner
- 3-25 L/min – Catalytic Water Conditioner Whole House 300x28mm 1/2″ BSP-T
- 24-54 L/min – Catalytic Water Conditioner Whole House 330x35mm 3/4″ BSP-T
In general applications where the flow rate is known to be low or there is relatively heavy scale build-up inside the pipe already, a conditioner one size smaller than the pipe diameter is recommended. Therefore, it is important for the installer to check the flow rate entering the property.
