Culligan High Efficiency (HE) Water Softeners
Flow range 3 – 8.5 m3/hr
The Culligan High Efficiency (HE) 1” and1.5” Softeners have patented technology which delivers improved efficiency to reduce operating costs. Up to 36% more efficient than traditional timeclock softeners. The HE softener reduces hard water contaminants, reducing scale build-up that affects equipment performance. With the Culligan Smart Controller, available on the HE, the softener adjusts to influent water conditions and regenerates based on need. Customers can also monitor their water treatment system performance, consumable usage, and maintenance needs, at a single site or across multiple ones 24 hours a day.
Culligan HE Softeners are offered in Up-flow, Down-flow or in Progressive-Flow configurations.

Frequently Asked Questions
Hard water is water that contains dissolved minerals such as magnesium, iron and manganese, and most often calcium. Water naturally becomes hard as it moves over and through the earth to either a reservoir or into an underground aquifer. Hard water is probably the most common water problem found in municipal and well water supplies. Hard water can cause what is known as scale (normally calcium carbonate, or limescale as it is more commonly known) to build up inside appliances and equipment that utilise water, but particularly ones that heat the water such as boilers, dishwashers, washing machines, cooling systems etc. This can have a significant impact on energy consumption and efficiency.
Just 1mm of limescale in your hot water system can increase your energy use by 7%*. The most common and effective treatment for hard water is a water softener.

Culligan water softeners use Cullex® ion-exchange resin which act on the specific ions which cause scale, mainly Calcium (Ca2+) and Maganesium (Mg2+) ions. These ions are exchanged for sodium ions.
When all the available sodium Na+ ions have been replaced with calcium or magnesium ions, the resin must be re-charged, or as it is more commonly known regenerated by eluting the Ca2+ and Mg2+ ions using a solution of sodium chloride (brine solution).
In this way the unit can continue to soften the water by simply regenerating it periodically when it becomes exhausted using a salt water brine solution.
