GFTM Series: Guthrie & Frey Water Conditioner

Wisconsin Home Water Softener System

Hard water can be much more problematic than you think. It can cause buildup of mineral scale inside your appliances and plumbing. It can block your water supply and cause appliances like dishwashers and washing machines to fail. Hard water stains kitchen and bathroom fixtures and also reduces the effectiveness of soaps and detergents, meaning that you and your clothing don’t get as clean. There are various water softener systems available to eliminate this hard water build up and supply your home with clean and safe water.

End the troubles of hard water with a Guthrie & Frey water conditioner. Our GF series water softener system removes hard minerals from your water leaving it soft, clean and better tasting.  Enjoy the benefits of a Guthrie & Frey water softener for your home.

More To Learn About This Water Softener System

How does a Guthrie & Frey Water Softener System Work?

  1. The untreated water enters the Control Valve where it is directed into the top of the Resin Tank and passes downward through a bed of resin. The resin will react with Calcium and Magnesium, the hardness minerals, by equally exchanging them for Sodium. When the water reaches the bottom of the tank, it is distributed up through a tube in the center of the tank into the Control Valve and through the outlet port as softened water.
  2. When the resin is saturated with mineral (hard water) it must be regenerated. After a backwash step to clean the resin bed, a brine solution is flushed through the resin tank, bathing the resin beads with Sodium which replace the accumulated Calcium and Magnesium (hardness).
  3. After brine is drawn into the resin tank, a rinse of just water passes through the bed rinsing the brine off. When the rinse cycles are finished, the resin cleaning process is complete and the bed is re-charged.
  4. The Control Valve will track your water usage and automatically perform the above processes.

For Your Health

Reverse Osmosis System

If you replace the water your body needs by drinking tap water, your body is forced to act as a filter—straining out contaminants which can lead to health problems, including cancer, kidney damage, miscarriage, and gastrointestinal upsets. By contrast, a reverse osmosis water filter can distill your tap water to 99.9% pure!

Salt Delivery Service

Schedule automatic salt delivery, hassle-free. Guthrie & Frey will place the salt right into your brine tank on your scheduled day, perform a visual inspection of your equipment and haul the empty bags away.
