Aquaphor A800

Exceptionally salt- and water-efficient whole-home cabinet water softener. Up to 30% reduction of salt emissions of a household.

Requires up to 30% less salt
The specially designed tank contains extra fine mesh and tightly compacted chlorine-resistant ion-exchange resin with granules 2 times smaller than in classical columns. The tank design extends its` contact with water and boosts overall salt-efficiency.

2-in-1: water softening & iron removal
With the same volume of ion-exchange resin, AQUAPHOR A800 provides a larger surface area in contact with water, absence of channel effect, while small granules regenerate faster and more efficiently. As a result — removal of a high concentration of Fe (up to 15 ppm).

Up to 5 times less water for regeneration
Regeneration of softener and especially iron removal system is very a water-consuming process for classical systems with columns. The innovative, patented Dual Core Valves of the AQUAPHOR A800 assures long-term trouble-free performance concurrently wasting minimal amount of water.

10-year warranty
Efficient and durable thick wall softener tank is made of homogeneous glass-filled composite and will serve longer than is guaranteed to serve, e.g. longer than a decade. While classic columns typically serve less than 5 years. Classical blow-moulded polypropylene columns externally reinforced with the glass fiber usually serve less than 5 years.

Salt-emissions reduction in whole-house water softening

AQUAPHOR A800 is a more sustainable option to other salt-emitting softeners for households thanks to its innovative tank and smaller size of ion-exchange resin. The combination simultaneously requires less water and less salt for the same or better result.

AQUAPHOR water filters are especially indispensable when water is hard or laden with iron or manganese. The ion-exchange resin in the patented AQUAPHOR water softeners is designed to last many times longer than any other type of media used in the classical water columns.

* Iron reduction to 0.3 ppm or less. Iron reduction claims limited to 5 ppm in the state of Wisconsin.
** Rate of flow must be verified at the end of the drain line.
*** For the purposes of plumbing appliance sizing, only the rated service flow rate and corresponding pressure loss may be used. Prolonged operation of a water soſtener at flow rates exceeding the tested service flow rate of 5.5 gpm (20.8 L/min) may compromise performance. Intermittent flow rate must not exceed 9.3 gpm (35.2 L/min).
