Designed with conservation in mind, Watts Vortech™ water softeners and filters feature high performance media, state of the art control valve technology and the new Vortech™ distribution system for greater efficiency.Think Green
In order to regain a softener’s or filter’s ability to remove contaminants its control valve must be able to go into a backwash cycle to effectively “clean” the media before it can be regenerated. Traditional systems produce large amounts of waste water during the backwash process and consume a high volume of salt used to condition the water. Vortech™ water softeners and filters reduce backwash water and frequency by 30% and reduce salt consumption, reducing the impact on the environment.
Vortech™ distribution systems utilize a more efficient distributor plate design to reduce backwash and improve system efficiency compared to traditional cone & gravel systems. This unique design provides greater “lift” and “action” throughout the entire width of the mineral tank during a backwash cycle, whereas traditional cone and gravel systems channel up through the media causing areas of very limited movement. In addition, because Vortech™ does not utilize gravel.
