Want a Water Softener But Don't Have Much Space?

Our Space Saver models are designed to fit in tight spaces. Ideal for condominiums, apartments, cottages, low crawl spaces, small basements and anywhere space is limited.

Space Saver Water Softener

Two Models

We offer two Space Saver models. One is standard-a-lone water softener. Our second model is a combination water and whole house filter, designed to remove water hardness, Chlorine, taste, odors and harmful chemical.

Systems come complete with meted control valve, by-pass, ion exchange resin, salt bin (built-in) and Catalytic activated carbon (combo system) and a five year limited warranty.Dimensions are 12″ wide, 20″ deep and 44-1/2″ in height.

Major components

Major components of our Space Saver water softeners include our Signature Series metered control valve, designed to provide greater efficiency, by-pass valve to isolate the unit if necessary, pipe fittings, pressure tank, the cabinet which contains the salt bin, ion exchange resin, gravel under bedding to provide even flow distribution, riser tube with bottom distributor and water softener salt, used to strip hardness minerals from the resin beads.

How water softeners work

The process whereby hardness minerals are removed from your water is described below:

  1. Water flows through the resin bed.
  2. As water flows through the ion exchange resin, hardness minerals (Calcium & Magnesium) are attracted to the resin and are removed from the water.
  3. Eventually, the resin reaches its capacity and the resin must be cleaned. (This process is called “regeneration”.)
  4. The control valve initiates the “cleaning process”, based on gallons used (not time).
  5. During the cleaning process, brine water flows through the resin and the hardness minerals become attached to the sodium in the brine water.
  6. After a period of time, the resin is rinsed so no salt will get into your water.


As water flows through the resin bed, hardness minerals are removed by the ion exchange resin.  Eventually, however, the resin reaches its capacity and must be cleaned.  This process is called, “regeneration”.

Signature Series valves are metered, which calculates when this cleaning process must occur.

This cleaning process is described as follows:

  1. This is an upward flow to remove any particles and clean the resin.
  2. Brine draw / rinse. This important step is when brine water flows through the resin bed to remove the hardness minerals. During this cycle, hardness minerals become unattached from the resin and are attracted to the water softener resin.
  3. 2nd During this up-flow cycle, salt is rinsed off the ion exchange resin.
  4. An additional cycle to rinse salt off the resin in a down-flow direction.
  5. This is when water flows through the water softener and into your house.
  6. During the brine tank refill, water is added to the brine tank for make-up water for brine water. Because this cycle is first, conditioned water is used for the brine tank make-up water.
