Historical operating data

The patented technologies found in the Culligan HE softener series optimise salt, water and electricity consumption by up to 46% over traditional softeners*.

Upflow regeneration allows up to 24% higher capacity at the same salt dosage when compared to down flow systems.

The proportional brining feature monitors water consumption and regenerates only the exhausted (used) resin rather than regenerating the whole tank at the same time.

The highly efficient Culligan Dial-a-Softness® control valve is unique to the industry allowing consumers to set the softness required, providing further savings in salt usage.

With Culligan’s patented Progressive Flow feature, you can size softeners based on average water usage, which helps reduce costs. In this formation up to 6 Culligan HE softeners can be connected in series.
