CUSTOM WATER SOFTENERS
Water King can meet the most stringent industrial specifications including
oil field, food services, medical facilities, municipal water supply, and

EXPERTISE
The Water King staff engineers and technicians can custom design a water
treatment system to fit your application. We have developed a list of
available materials and options, which we have used in the past to meet
customer needs. A water softener consists of tanks, valves, resin, brine
system, face piping, internals, and controls. Not all of the options are
compatible. The list below should give you some background information to
allow you to communicate with our technical staff to devlop your custom
system.
