Water is essential for every living thing existing on the planet. It is very essential to remain hydrated in case of humans. Hard water is one of the main health related problems that every nation is suffering from. Hard water can cause many kinds of diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, cerebrovascular mortality, malformations of central nervous system, Alzheimer’s disease, Diabetes, childhood atopic dermatitis, kidney stones, reproductive health, digestion health and constipation, bone mineral density, and many other diseases. A water softener can help you in reducing the chances of affecting yourself with above mentioned diseases. Duplex softener can be the best choice for softening your water.
Working of the softeners
These softeners perform in the same way as a simple water softener. They remove all the hardness from the water in the form of minerals. The thing that makes duplex softeners differ from the normal water softener is that it has two resin chambers which are used to soften your water. One of the resin chambers is used to service while other one is on standby. Both the resin chambers are connected by a valve which distributes the water among the chambers. At first, the water flow is directed towards the first chamber and continues its flow till it is completely exhausted. After the first chamber is exhausted, the valve redirects the water towards the second resin chamber so that it can be softened. While the second chamber is filling with hard water, the first chamber water has already become soft and is sent towards the taps and other water outlets for use. As the second resin chamber fills completely with hard water the valve again redirects the water flow towards first empty resin chamber and the second resin water chamber is ready for use. This cycle keeps on going from switching water between the resin chambers and softening it at the same time.
These duplex softeners are used where a large and continuous supply of soft water is needed. These softeners are capable of providing you with the 24 hours of running soft water. Duplex softeners are usually installed in very large buildings and offices where continuous and uninterrupted flow of water is needed. There are many types and sizes of duplex softeners available in the market to choose from. Some of the duplex softeners are manually controlled while many others are available in automatic function and with timer function.
