FWT Scale Prevention

Introducing a new approach to water treatment that is 100% Eco-friendly! It’s good for the planet and good for you.

The FWT Scale Prevention equipment provides all the benefits of soft water without the slimy or slippery feeling:

  • NO scale
  • NO salt
  • NO brine tank
  • NO backwash
  • NO costly appliance repair
  • NO electricity
  • NO wasted water backwashing
  • NO yearly maintenance

THE PROBLEM:

Calcium creates scale in pipes, on appliances, and other plumbing surfaces. This leads to higher heating and energy costs. It can also cause expensive repairs to appliances such as ice machines, coffee makers, dishwashers, water heaters, and cooling towers in commercial buildings. Scale can also be a source for bacteria to grow, which can be a health concern in drinking water applications.

THE SOLUTION

FWT’s Scale Prevention equipment transform Calcium ions into Calcium crystals. Calcium crystals are stable and cannot attach to pipes, surfaces, hardware, or heat exchanger components. The crystals are so small that they are easily rinsed away by water flow.

Unlike traditional water softeners, the Scale Prevention system does not need to regenerate, so there is no need for salt or drainage. With no regeneration, there is no wasted water! There is also no need for electricity, which means there are no complicated electronic controls. The unit is also easy to install and set up and there is minimal maintenance.

  • NO scale
  • NO salt
  • NO brine tank
  • NO backwash
  • NO costly appliance repair
  • NO electricity
  • NO wasted water backwashing

Step 1: Main Tank:

Water enters the system and flows down through a two-cubic foot bed of coconut shell activated carbon. This initial water treatment process im- proves water quality by reducing bad tastes, foul odors, chlorine/chloramines, and organic substances through absorption.

Step 2: Inner Tank and Contact Chamber

During this process, water flows upward through the inner tank where treatment for scale prevention is provided through using out highly effective, anti-scale media. This unique material transforms Calcium ions into Calcium crystals, which are stable and cannot attach to pipes, surfaces, hardware, or hear exchanger components. The crystals are so small, they are easily rinsed away by the water flow!

Unlike traditional water softeners, this Scale Prevention system does not need to regenerate, so there is no need for salt or drainage. With no regeneration, there is no wasted water! There is also no need for electricity, which means there are no complicated electronic controls. The unit is also easy to install and set up and there is minimal maintenance.

Rainbow H2S

Hydrogen Sulfide Well Water Treatment System

THE PROBLEM: Foul odor from your well water caused by Hydrogen Sulfide. Hydrogen Sulfide (or H2S) is a colorless gas with a characteristic foul odor of rotten eggs. It results naturally from the bacterial breakdown of organic matter in your well water. Excess amounts of H2S in your well water can not only lead to unpleasant odor, but can also cause black staining and corrode pipes and other metal components of plumbing.

THE SOLUTION: FWT’s Rainbow H2S uses nature’s own oxidation process to eliminate it from your water supply. How does it work? FWT’s Rainbow H2S utilizes a single tank that stores a bubble of air compressed by your well pressure within the media tank. As your water passes through the air, the Hydrogen Sulfide is converted into a particle. This particle is then trapped by the catalytic filter media in the tank where the bubble is gradually consumed by the passing water. For regeneration, the unit first backwashes itself and removes any iron particles it has trapped. The system then replenishes the air bubble by drawing in atmosphere and temporarily empties the tank of all water. This transfers the oxygen molecules into and on the surface of the media bed where all oxidation occurs. The system then returns to the service position, again filtering your water.

Structural Features: The FWT Well Water Treatment system features blow-molded, NSF-certified, UV resistant fiberglass bound tanks; 1” internal riser system; and a built-in Bypass Valve safety system.

FWT Aeration System

Your Custom Solution: Florida Water Treatment offers a complete line of aerators. Models range from 130 gallon to 500 gallon capacities with indoor and outdoor applications.

Aerators will reduce/remove unwanted odors, gasses, and VOC's from your water supply. FWT’s aerators also reduce water borne radon which can be found in some water supplies. In conjunction with other radon reduction methods, aerators can be an effective alternative.

Our aerators work on a simple process of spraying water through nozzles in a fine jet mist. As the water is spraying, it will naturally release the gas or odor. The gas is then vented to the outside using the assistance of a vent blower on indoor models, or naturally released to the atmosphere when using an outdoor aeration system.

Aerators are a non-chemical alternative for reduction or removal of unwanted gasses or odors. Action Manufacturing's Aerator tank is atmospheric and requires a pump and pressure tank to provide water pressure to the house or building.

All FWT aerator packages come standard with a shrouded 1/2 hp submersible pump, pressure tank, solenoid valve with coil, drain pipe with ball valve, line cord, spray bar, draw pipe, 0-100 pressure gauge, 115 volt pump up switch, and 220 volt pump down switch. Large pump sizes and/or pressure tanks are also available if needed.

 

Commercial

Rainbow Commercial Series

The Commercial Series is an excellent choice if needing a single, twin, triplex or possibly a quadraplex softener or filter system. The Rainbow Commercial Series is capable of incorporating an optional internal no hard water bypass piston, which when combines with the “NT” microprocessor or mechanical metered timer allows for equipment capable of 220GPM service flow rates continuously 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. (Single system service flow rate is approx 106GPM).

The 12 day or metered timers allow for adjustability of all metering, salting and regeneration cycles. The inlet/outlet brass constructed valve body is ported to house seal/spacer and piston. Two piston technology combined with the heavy duty drive motors housed in a nema 3 cover sealing on a stainless steel backplate, allow the valve to move the piston smoothly and firmly through the programmable/adjustable regeneration cycles.

The Pentair Commercial valve is the industry standard when it comes to commercial water softener valves. The durability, efficiency, and ease of operation make this valve the favorite among the top water treatment experts.
