How does a Guthrie & Frey Water Softener Work?

  1. gf2The 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.
