What is the Best-suited Aqua Conditioner for me?
The flow rate is the volume of water moving through a pipe within a given amount of time. It’s important to understand that undersizing your water conditioner can have adverse effects. Hence, it’s crucial to know the requirement and then take a call. An ideal situation is to have a constant flow rate with pressure.
Flow rates directly affect the system. If the flow rate drops dramatically, the conditioner reduces its efficiency.
Whereas, with an increased flow rate at the input, it increases back-pressure on your water pump, decreases water pressure at the output (thus reducing the flow) and increases electricity and maintenance cost.
Why get a conditioner that increases your problems than getting rid of them?
