Superior Water Conditioners, Up-Flow/Down-Flow Filters
Superior Water Conditioners magnetically alter the natural characteristics of hard water minerals,
making it difficult for them to bond together and form a hard brittle scale. Instead, they remain in a
suspended state and will either flow on through, or can be easily purged from, water-using equipment
and plumbing systems. Superior technology also has zero environmental impact because it requires
no energy or chemicals to operate. The Superior Water Conditioner® is designed to leave the desirable
things in the water such as calcium, magnesium and other minerals that are beneficial for human
The Superior Water Conditioner® is not a water softener and should not be represented as such. It
does, however, physically condition the water in such a way that hard water minerals will remain
suspended, rather than form a hard calcite scale on heat transfer surfaces. This chemical-free water
treatment process will increase efficiency and extend the life of water heaters, dishwashers, ice
makers, humidifiers and the over-all plumbing system.
The Superior Water Conditioner® also reduces surface tension of water,
which naturally offers additional benefits. The application of a DU model in
the distributor of a media type filter (shown to the right) not only treats the
domestic water supply for scale control, but also provides a much more
thorough and effective backwashing of filter media.
water is compatible with Green Sand, Birm, GAC, KDF, and even
ion-exchange resins and will provide much better results than just filtering or
softening alone. When backwashing a softener with Superiorized® water, the
resin bed will remain loose and not pack over many years of use, which will
obviously extend product life, increase efficiency, reduce salt consumption and
Other benefits of reducing water surface tension include less spotting on
dishes, silverware, and even shower doors. Superiorized® water is great for
washing down house siding, windows and automobiles. It is also beneficial
to irrigate with Superiorized® water, which will greatly reduce fertilizer
requirements, as well as conserve water.
