The US Water Escort Portable Compact Water Conditioner is designed for applications where soft water is desired but a permanent connection is not available, such as RV's, Marine Applications, Apartments, Mobile Homes, Light Manufacturing and homes without electricity.
An Escort Portable Water Softener delivers soft water which eliminates or reduces lime, hard water and rust stains. It prevents limescale build-up, improves the taste and odor, increases the life of all water-using fixtures and appliances.You will appreciate how it reduces dry skin while increasing lathering of soaps and all cleaning agents. It comes with a 5-Micron Pre-filter, which also serves as the chamber where salt is added. We recommend that it be Backflushed at least once a month, and instructions are included showing how this can easily be done.
The Escort Portable Water Softener includes the filter, hardness test strips, inlet shut off valve, inlet and outlet hose adapters. Anyone can build a portable water softener, but no one builds one this good. It's compact design saves space and can fit into even the smallest spaces. It uses the highest grade of Cation-Exchange Resin. It's full-flow piping and head allows for flows of up to 12 GPM with little-to-no pressure drop. It can easily be regenerated (re-charged) in about an hour.
