WaterCare® - Home Water Conditioning Systems
One unit. Total water care.
TotalCare® Water Conditioners are the smart, convenient water treatment system for your home and lifestyle. These conditioners clean your system with patented self-monitoring technology, and use our exclusive Crystal-Right™ media to soften water and remove unpleasant taste and odor. They can also correct acidic water conditions to help preserve your home’s piping and fixtures.
Patented IQ2 control monitors and records water use history to ensure top performance
Exclusive Crystal-Right™ media acts as an exceptional filter and softener
Patented chlorine generator automatically cleans the system
(Not intended for treating non-potable water.)
Complete softening and filtration system in one convenient, efficient unit
More efficient water to reduce operating and maintenance cost of household water-using appliances, saving you money

The TotalCare® Series uses a patented chlorinating system to clean the unit with every regeneration. You can enjoy the piece of mind that your water conditioner will provide fresh, clean, delicious water to your home every day.
TotalCare® Twin Systems
For bigger and busier households, TotalCare is available as a twin system for high capacity water treatment when you need it – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
This is the normal operating position of the conditioner. In this stage or position, untreated water flows through the inlet side of the control valve and down through and across the media. It is at this moment the undesirable minerals (calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, etc.) are removed from the water. In some models, sulfur (rotten egg odor) can be eliminated and the pH of the water increased.
Brine Tank Fill
This is the first cycle in the regeneration cycle. When the system needs to regenerate, it signals the control valve to fill the brine tank with water. Unlike many other systems, the WaterCare system uses conditioned water when making brine solution.
Because the WaterCare systems use a “dry fill” process, salt is less susceptible to “bridging”. Tank sweating is also less likely to result when humid conditions exist. And because conditioned water is used in refill, the tank stays cleaner.
Backwash is a step in the regeneration process where the media in the tank is physically lifted up, spun around and agitated under pressure. It is cleaned of any particles such as dirt, clay and precipitated iron which has been filtered out during normal use of the system. The backwash water containing the undesirable particles flow harmlessly to drain.
This cycle is the rejuvenating or recharging cycle in the regeneration process. Brine is drawn out of the salt tank and passes through the patented chlorine generator in route to the system’s media. While passing through the generator, it comes in contact with a small amount of electrical current which in turn creates free chlorine from the chlorides in the brine. As the chlorinated brine solution flows through the media, it disinfects the tank and recharges the media. Most of the chlorine is consumed in the disinfection process. Any left over chlorine and brine solution is removed during the system’s rinse cycle.
This is the final step in the regeneration process. It ensures that any remaining salt and residual chlorine has been rinsed from the unit. When the cycle is completed, the unit returns to the service position to provide quality conditioned water.
