Product certification is usually referred to as Conformity Assessment. This term is used to describe steps taken by both manufacturers and independent third parties to determine fulfillment of standards requirements. It involves testing products in a laboratory according to a standard procedure and it also involves periodic audit inspections of the manufacturing facility to insure that the product that was tested conforms to the ones currently being manufactured. The Water Quality Association is an organization that is certified by the American National Standards Institute for conformity assessment.

Water softening is the removal of calcium and a few other minerals that can cause our working water to damage household property (99% of the domestic household water used for toilets, baths, showers, washing machines, etc).

When it deposits as scale, calcium carbonate (limestone) is an abrasive rock like mineral. Hard water is a common type of water containing dissolved compounds of calcium and magnesium and often other divalent and trivalent metallic elements.

The term hardness was first used for waters that were hard to wash in, referring to the soap wastage of hard water. Hardness prevents soap from lathering, forming an insoluble curd in the water; hardness typically causes the build up of hardness scale.

Hard Water Causes - Stiff, cardboard-like laundry, - High soap usage and need for fabric softeners

Dry, itchy skin and scalp, - Unmanageable hair, - Scale build up in sinks, baths, taps and appliances

Mineral deposits on dishes and glassware, - Extra work to remove soap curd on baths and showers

High energy costs, due to scale build-up in pipes, hot cylinders and in heating elements of appliances

Ion exchange (IX) water softening is the most popular and effective form of removing scale hardness from water, consisting of a pressure tank filled with sulfonated, polystyrene beads that are capable of removing hardness ions from water and replacing them with softer ions, such as sodium.

A water softener is connected to a brine tank filled with salt, which often regenerates the resin beads. The small beads attract and hold onto calcium and magnesium ions as water flows through them. When the beads become saturated they can't hold any more, salt is rinsed over the resin, which scrubs off mineral deposits and gets them ready to absorb hardness ions again.

Clack Water Softeners

Clack NSF certified water softeners are known as the most advanced, best specified and most reliable, but also the lowest cost year to year to own and run, a world leading brand that is nearly 70 years old, established in Wisconsin in the US.

Clack water softeners cost less to run at 1 bag of salt per person per year, and up to 90% less water than cheaply made mini-timer softeners, (and just €1 a year for electric), Clack truly are the lowest cost all round of all water softeners.

Our continual warranty plan on Clack water softeners requires no annual service, only 10 yearly checks to avail of free ongoing parts, labour and on-site callout cover, 7days 365.  No system lasts as long or is low cost to run than Clack.

Cheaply made, timer or mini water softener brands may cost 80% or 90% of top end Clack systems, but will definitely cost 300% to 500% longer term to run, service and replace.  They even cost more DIY to buy, size for size !!

We are asked for best in class, highest quality digital LCD display, multi language, meter mini-cab small house water softeners from €250 DIY, usually by builders and landlords looking for the lowest buying cost, but with much higher running costs for the user (water, salt, service) - much shorter lives than Clack systems.

The smallest Clack systems, will barely differ a hundred euros than the most cheaply made, basic mini cabinet softeners, dressed up as a "gold system" or generic named so called "made in Ireland" device.

Our water softeners are just that extra bit special !  

We use the best German branded Lanxess S1567 ion exchang resin a monospheric, high stability, low pressure loss, low water use, chlorine resistant, 2,000 cycle life cation exchange media, offering up to 50 years service life.

Badly made water softeners use cheap resin that lasts for 5 to 10 years.  It is the water softener resin hidden inside the water softener that actually does the water softening.  Without Lanxess being used you will not get optimum softening.

Lanxess also has well proven properties to massively reduce iron and manganese, most heavy metals, ammonium, radium and sediments. And with Lanxess MP500 anion resin, removal of high levels of bog water tannin colour too.

With our highly specialised installation service, we locate Clack water softeners in the best surveyed, safest and most discrete locations possible, offering careful time taken for a first class installation.

If you want an under press water softener, get a Clack high capacity lifetime unit, - half a day to carefully integrate for optimum location, to target all household hard water - header tank, toilets, showers, baths, sinks, copper cyclinder, washing machine, dishwasher, etc, to rid the household completely of limescale.

(We don't horse in the cheap mini units under the sink, or out on your path, in under 1 hour !!)  Many systems are often quoted as low cost, but with no proven world leading brand credentials, true factory origin or 70 year track record.
