Water softeners are generally sized to the number of people in the house using the water, rather than the size of the house. Currently we have 8 domestic models ranging from the single person household, up to a 18 person home.

There are two distinct types of water softener model in each size, the C-AVSM range and the E-range.

Water Softener Type
C-AVSM4 models
Meters water. Self setting, never too early, never too late.
Economy range
These are intelligent self setting meter controlled machines using an Ensign enhanced 460i controller. They will measure your actual water consumption and automatically adjust themselves daily to match the actual water demand. Never too early, never too late with advanced look ahead technology.

Uniquely, a state of the art remote system monitor will show you what's going on and rather cleverly will even alert you when the salt tank is getting low and there's only about seven days left before it runs out.

A high efficiency brine tank LED light will show you whats going on and turn itself off when you're done.
Economy based electro-mechanical time clock machines that rely on the user to set an interval of regeneration in anticipation of water usage.

The user will have to check the salt levels themselves periodically by lifting the lid and looking inside.
