Compare Top Rated Water Softeners
The Fleck down flow water softeners is older technology that still works today. Basically the water softener regenerates and flows downward, when it regenerates it uses the full amount salt needed to recharge the whole resin bed even if not needed which waste salt and water. Fleck water softeners only carry a 5 year warranty on the valve and 10 years on the tanks.
A SoftPro up flow on demand water softener is newer technology that actually counts every gallon of water used so that the system can regenerate only when needed. If you use twice as much water or half as much water as usual the system will know it and only recharges the resin bed that needs to be charged saving you a average of $3,297.00 over the lifetime of the water softener system. That is a average of $219.80 savings per year. These figures have been founded based on data we have gathered from reliable resources.
This is how it is calculated:
The SoftPro water softeners cost more than the Fleck water softeners but save on operating expenses in the long run, more than making up for the initial price difference.
