Capital Means Excellence

One of the original pioneers in water conditioning. Capital Water Softener, Inc. has Peen building quality products since 1936, Quality built in to allow quality to come out. As our motto goes, "You never had it so soft!" Only the best are allowed to display the Capital name.

2850 Series Conditioners are the ultimate choice for the mid-size jobs, More flow rate than domestic water conditioners and less than the unneeded more expensive larger systems, Has automatic hard water by-pass during regeneration for single or twin systems or capabilities for no hard water by-pass with the aid of diaphragm valves (shut-offs on the outlet side) for twin, twin alternating, or multiple systems, No time consuming wiring is necessary. Completely factory wired for fast and easy installations. The regeneration of the TI Series water conditioners are timer initiated with either a 7 or 12 day timer. The regeneration of the MI-Series water conditioners are initiated by a mechanical demand metering system and the ET-Series water conditioners are initiated by a microprocessor demand metering system, All systems are capable of immediate, delayed, or manual regenerations.

  • The 2850 Series valve is a top mount control valve with a 1,5" NPT inlet and outlet, perfect for small to medium sized jobs.
  • Solid brass lead free control valve body for strength and durability.
  • Fully adjustable five cycle control delivers controlled upflow backwash with downflow brining, slow rinse, rapid rinse, and service.
  • Time tested hydraulically balanced piston, seal, and spacer concept to pilot water flow during service and regeneration completely independent of water pressure.
  • Factory installed flow controls for accurate and efficient salt dosage with each regeneration
  • Timed brine refill is fully adjustable to accommodate any desired salt dosage.
     

2850 WATER CONDITIONERS

A. MINERAL TANK: Fiberglass Reinforced Pressure Vessel manufactured to operate at 150 PSI and 120F. NSF approved.
B. DISTRIBUTOR SYSTEM: Bottom Stack - Slotted Distributor, or Hub Lateral System. For maximum service flow and minimal pressure drop.
C. UNDERBEDDING: Gravel Underbedding allows full usage of the mineral bed and uniform distribution of flow for service and regeneration. UL listed, NSF approved.
D. MINERAL: High Capacity Ion Exchange, FDA approved, U.S. manufactured. Uniform beads for maximum hardness removal and long life.
E. BRINE TANK: FDA approved High Density Polyethylene Brine Tank with environmental stress crack properties and dust resistant cover.
F. SALT GRID: Salt Grid Systems minimizes the salt from bridging and improves the brine concentration to obtain full capacity with each and every regeneration.
G. FLOAT VALVE: Works as a secondary safety shut-off for the brine valve in the main control valve as well as a salt dosage control.
