The REK automatic water softener is a new model in the ISI series, designed to offer more advantages, including extreme simplicity and speed of programming.
REK has been studied ad hoc on the basis of the experience of operators in the catering and bar sector, following the indications collected from technicians in the sector who use every day coffee machines, cup washers, dishwashers, ice makers, steam ovens, etc.
The compact dimensions and the new design have been designed to take up even less space and make REK softeners suitable for installation in even very small environments.
Some adjustments make this softener extremely practical:
The compact dimensions of the new line make it easy to install even in places with limited space availability.
Compared to the ISI8 model, the valve cylinder block of the REK softener has been moved towards the centre of the brine, thus reducing the overall dimensions.

Litres of softened water according to its hardness
REK has a convenient opening of the lid making it easier to insert salt into the brine vat. The lid of the softener remains attached to the salt container during opening.
The REK cylinder can be easily removed to facilitate cleaning and maintenance of the softener. It is possible to order the softener with two different types of cylinder: steel or nylon.
REK has included the “Anti-flooding device” which has the task to preventing water from escaping from the brine vat of the softener. It will be advisable to check the cause and the good functioning of the softener if it should become operational. The anti-flooding device is completely integrated into the structure and does not "subtract" space from the brine vat.
Built-in overflow fitting
The new REK water softener has a non-return valve to prevent water from returning to the tank This mechanism strengthens the work of the anti-flooding device.
It should be remembered that the "overflow and anti-flooding system" do not affect the operation of the softener.
REK has a cover that wraps and protects the upper part of the softener from shocks.
The cover can be easily removed for inspection or maintenance.
REK has 2 connections for water mains.
