The Regulator & Carbon in Water Softeners

February 15, 2023

When it comes to improving the quality of your household's water supply, a water softener is a valuable investment. Among the many options available in the market, The Regulator manufactured by Jason's Water Systems stands out for its efficient use of carbon to purify your household’s water supply. Why is carbon important for water softeners, why do we call the system The Regulator, and how does The Regulator outperform the competition? Learn more in this post from Jason’s Water Systems blog. 

Carbon in Water Softeners

Carbon is a crucial component in the water purification process as it acts as a filter, removing impurities and improving the taste and odor of the water. High-quality, activated coconut shell carbon is used to absorb and trap contaminants, including chlorine and other unwanted organic compounds. This leads to cleaner, clearer, and fresher water for you and your family. One of the benefits of using carbon in a water softener is that it removes chlorine in the first filtration stage before the water comes in contact with the softening media, resin. By removing these impurities and oxidizing agents right away, water softener filter media and tank components will have an extended lifespan and more efficiently soften your home’s water. Another benefit to using carbon in a water softener is that you are now able to wash, bathe, and clean in chemical free water throughout your entire home.  Why stop at the kitchen sink?  You can either get a filter or be a filter!

Why Is It Called The Regulator?

We’ve selected The Regulator as the name of our product as we’ve had our systems certified and tested by the plumbing, filtration, and softening codes that regulate our system’s industry: International Association of Plumbing Mechanical Officials. Certification by these entities are required to ensure the best product for our customers knowing that we’ve taken the steps to test and prove our system meets the plumbing codes.

Why Does The Regulator Outperform The Competition? 

The Regulator is so much more than just a water softener! The carbon within The Regulator water softener is tested by NSF/ANSI Standard 42 to filter up to 200,000 to 400,000 gallons of water depending on the model, making our water system tested to be much larger than anyone else on the market. Compared to the average lifespan of our competitors' carbon filters, which are rated at 120,000 gallons on their largest tank, our carbon filtration offer longer-lasting performance.

Jason's Water Systems tank comparisons

While most competitors' carbon have a limited capacity to remove chlorine at a rate of just 4 gallons per minute, homes can use up to 16 gallons of water per minute. This means that those undersized systems are unable to keep up with the demand, allowing hard water and chlorine to pass through the softener and enter the home, rendering the system ineffective. The Regulator water softener from Jason's Water Systems is a superior solution, tested by NSF-ANSI-44, handling up to 25 gallons of water per minute. With this exceptional performance, The Regulator is able to treat all of your water…all of the time, resulting in soft and near-bottled-quality water for their homes.

The Regulator water softener is also designed with ease of use in mind. The carbon filter media is accessible by our technicians and can be replaced, ensuring that your water supply remains clean and healthy. Using our touch screen valve with built in alarms and diagnostics, the system will memorize your custom water usage allowing our technicians precise timing on when your carbon will need to be replaced. Paired with Jason’s Annual Maintenance Program, you can enjoy a water softener that is built to last. The Regulator water softener can last up to 20 years when properly maintained, and the team at Jason’s Water Systems is here to do just that through our annual maintenance program.
