Minimax 1″ high volume

The Minimax Major has been designed to deal with the demands of a large modern home or business. It is compact enough to fit inside kitchen units due to a twin cabinet design. The softener sits in one cabinet and a small tube connects it to the salt cabinet. With peak flow rates of 80 litres per minute, a pressure drop of less then 0.6 Bar (at 30 litres per minute) and a daily capacity of over 6000 litres at 300 ppm, it is likely to surpass your needs.

The meter of a water softener can be likened to the engine of a car. The better the meter, the better the softener can perform. The Minimax range is unique in its design, and is fitted with two displacement meters. With pinpoint accuracy, they easily measure from a dripping tap all the way up to the highest flow rates of a domestic plumbing system. Other softeners are fitted with paddle wheel meters, which means that trickle flow, or creeping hard water, is an inconvenient problem home owners often have to live with.

The Big Blue really is the ultimate high capacity water softener. The Big Blue has a larger cabinet that holds over 65kgs of salt, so it doesn’t need refilling as often. What’s more, it makes room for taller resin cylinders which gives a greater capacity (over 10,000 litres per day at 300ppm). Please ask for advice on which model you require.

“We had a look at a number of companies and went with a Minimax. No problems at all with the lime scale and we’re delighted with the results.”

We would not be very happy living in this hard water area without our Minimax.
