with less salt to purchase & lower water bills

Peak Performance Control Valve

The Pentair Fleck 9100 TS Control Valve, has a
proven reputation for trouble-free operation.

User Friendly LCD Display

Shows time of day & gallons remaining.
Provides historical and diagnostic data.

Microcomputer ‘Brain’

A precise electronic control system that responds to changing water conditions in a way out-dated timeclock and metered systems can’t match.

Soft Water 24/7

Never run out of soft water with a twin-tank system, even with
a house full off guests or doing loads of laundry. One softening
tank is in use while the second tank acts as a backup and is
always ready to go.

High Efficiency Features

AccuSense™ Technology for reduced Salt & Water Usage

AccuSenseTM Technology is ideal for regions like ours, where water hardness fluctuates. This system uses two sensors to provide precise water analysis in real time to only regenerate when 100% of resin capacity has been used.

This feature provides a 30-50% reduction in salt usage and water waste by providing more efficient regenerations. It also ensures you don’t run out of soft water because water hardness spikes for a few hours or days.

Hardness in this region can fluctuate between 17-38 grains hardness, even from day to day. This causes standard softeners to waste salt & water by regeneration too frequently or run out of soft water.

Zero-Waste Design

The system uses 100% of its
capacity before regenerating,
saving both salt and water.

Compare to single tank
softeners that trigger at 66%
capacity, regenerating even
with hundreds of gallons
capacity left.

Water Save Mode

Cleans itself with 50% less
water in 9 of 10 cycles

Adjustable Cycle Times

We program your softener
to use less salt and water

Enhanced Salt Setting

We adjust the salt dosage
and capacity to maximize
salt efficiency

Meters Water Use

Regenerates only when
necessary unlike time
clocks on preset days

Upflow Regeneration

Up to 10% more efficient! Drives the hardness minerals up through the depleted resin and out to drain – saving both salt and the undepleted portion of the resin for future use.

Traditional ‘downflow’ softeners deplete the unused portion of the resin bed with every regeneration. It’s like draining your car’s gas tank before
filling up!

Reliability & Longevity Features

ChlorResist Softening Resin

Premium, 10% cross-link resin provides up to 50% longer life and increased capacity. It’s stronger and more resistant to the chlorine found in city water, than softeners with 8% resin.

Soft Water Recharge

Cleaner operation with
improved reliability, and
extended softener life by
regenerating with soft water
from the second tank.

Soft Water Refill

By using only soft water
2 hrs before regeneration
brine tank is cleaner and
capacity is conserved

Reinforced Tank

Extra strong fiberglass
reinforced softening tank
with 10 year warranty

Safety & Convenience Features

Power Outage Protection

No need to reset the timer
during a power outage for
up to 48 hours.

Salt Tank Safety Float

Peace of mind operation –
prevents water overflow
in salt tank

Bypass Valve

Easy-to-use. Turn ‘off’ your
softener without disrupting
water flow in your home.

After shopping around for a Water Softener we ended talking with Gary at Crystal Clear on University Ave. in Waterloo. Gary is extremely friendly and knowledgeable, answered ALL of our sometimes complicated questions, and provided a relaxed no pressure sales experience.Our system was installed by Murray who also gave us a very experienced, professional, and tidy looking installation. Murray fully explained everything we needed to know and our installation looks fantastic.Terrific experience on all levels, and I can VERY HIGHLY recommend the team at Crystal Clear for everything they have done for us.Don't buy any products for your home water needs until you talk to Crystal Clear!

The Staff at Crystal Clear Water Centers are very friendly and great to deal with for Water conditioning equiptment. I recently purchased a Crystal Maxx Water softener from Lisa who provided recommendations based on my real water useage and the unit is working exactly as per specification on water use and regeneration. Gary and Alex provided me with the technical data for my final decision on purchasing the unit. Paul and Kevin the installer completed an excellent installation placement of the equiptment. I am extremely pleased and happy for all of the help provided by this company. I highly recommend this company for anyone looking for a new water softener for their friendly attitude to their professionalism with quality equiptment.

100% recommend this place for parts and repairs to water softeners. Very friendly, competent staff! Kudos to the front desk crew, but also to parts expert Alex. I had a miscommunication with my plumber that meant I had to return several times to the store--with returns--in one day. Everyone was super helpful and super patient. Next time I'll just use their service technicians to save money and time.

Our old house had a Kinetico water system in it and we used Crystal Clear to service it. So it was an easy decision to use them to install a Kinetico softener and RO system when we moved to a new house. From start to finish they were professional and efficient, and their Customer Service has been exemplary!

I recently had Crystal Clear install a RO water filtration system in my home so that we could have a filtered water option at our kitchen sink. The customer service was exceptional, the install was smooth, and they followed up a few weeks later to ensure that we were happy with the product and that all was working smoothly. All-in-all, it was a wonderful experience and I'd highly recommend them!

I can't believe I hadn't written a review for these guys a long time ago. We've purchased many different water filtering products from them, over the last 15 - 20 years. They have been excellent. We live in the country with our own well so we have everything from Iron Filters and UV, to Softner and R.O. for drinking. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Way back in 2016 I had a 'Table Top' style water distiller repaired. It had been in continual use for almost 20 years! I was very pleased with the service technician, Murray R. He took the time to explain all his work and gave me a plastic bag with ALL the old worn out parts he replaced. He even said to call him if I noticed any issues. Well, that was 2 years ago and this machine (still in use every day) doesn't show a week of wear. (BTW, we bought this machine from 'Crystal Clear' over 20 years ago.) Outstanding build quality.

When my water softener brine tank filled up with water, the manufacture recommended me to Clear Water. Great service. Wayne was very helpful diagnosing my softener problem and quickly set me up with a appointment. When the tech Kevin showed up he was friendly, professional, and proficient. He quickly repaired my softener back to working state. Overall I am very impressed and if I need service or a new softener in the future I will definitely be going back! Thanks for the help!
