leader in the fluid treatment industry.
Solar-AQUA Plus is high-purity alloy of noble and semi-noble
metals formulations used in pretreatment, primary treatment,
and wastewater applications. Solar AQUA Plus supplement or
replace existing technologies to dramatically extend system
life, reduce heavy metals, microorganisms, scale, lower total
cost, and decrease maintenance.
Patented Solar-AQUA Plus is 100 percent recyclable and
contains no chemical additives. Hospitals, restaurants,
municipal water treatment facilities, and homes rely on
Solar-AQUA plus to safely reduce or remove chlorine, iron,
hydrogen sulfide, heavy metals, and bacteria from their water.
What are Solar-AQUA Plus and how do they work?
Plus are high-purity, noble and semi-noble metals based alloys
that treat water through a process based upon the principle of
redox (Oxidation- Reduction).
explain redox like this: Solar Industries unique combination
of noble and semi-noble metals creates an electrochemical
reaction. During this reaction, electrons are transferred
between molecules, and new elements are created. Some harmful
contaminants are changed into harmless components. Free
chlorine, for instance, is changed into benign, water-soluble
chloride, which is then carried harmlessly through the water
supply. Similarly, some heavy metals such as copper, lead,
mercury and others, react to plate out onto the medium's
surface, thus being effectively removed from the water supply.
Why use Solar-AQUA Plus?
The marketplace is filled with
good water filtration/purification systems and technologies

So...why consider using Solar-AQUA
We can give you two good reasons
Because Solar-AQUA Plus enhance the performance, extend the
life, reduce the maintenance and lower the total cost of many
available carbon-based systems.
Two: Solar-AQUA Plus help control microorganisms
by creating an environment that's deadly to some
microorganisms and that interferes with the ability of many
other microorganisms to function. Either way, the use of
Solar-AQUA Plus results in the total elimination of some
contaminants and a great reduction of a wide variety of
Solar-AQUA Plus was designed specifically for removing or

Water Treatment Systems... Which type do you need?
There are essentially only two principle locations for
installing water treatment systems. Which of the two systems
you need depends upon what you hope to accomplish. One is
Point-of-Entry (POE), the other is Point-of-Use (POU).
What's the difference?
A Point-of-Entry (POE) system is installed on your side of the
meter with the express purpose of treating all of the incoming
water before it goes into the individual supply lines that
feed your laundry, bathrooms (including toilets), dedicated
outside faucets and others as well as your kitchen. POE
systems often include softeners, large bed carbon filters, and
some systems which are specifically designed to remove (or
trap) sediment, foul tastes and odors. POE systems are
sometimes considered pre-filters.
A Point-of-Use (POU) system is installed in an individual
source line ahead of any or all of the building's taps,
faucets or other dedicated outlets used to dispense water for
drinking, cooking or bathing. Good POU systems are often
expected to capture whatever escapes the POE system.
Our SYSTEM (Natural
Water Conditioning System) works on the theory of a long
lasting catalyst, this catalyst converter is composed of
different element alloys of noble and semi-noble metals,
which is installed in your water in order to provide
soft water that is salt-free. The unit is maintenance
free as it never needs adding salts, backwashing or
The core of the water softening system is the catalytic
converter. This converter is created by combining a
precise formula of certain metals (including precious
metals) at extremely high temperatures.
There are many
commercial ways of treating hard water but our method to
condition the water is very simple. Our system work by
altering the crystallization behavior of mineral ions such
that they loose their ability to cause adhesive scale. This
process is very successful. The effect of device is instant.
How the Media Works
To turn the
scale into aragonite and eliminate it,
"In typical cooling tower applications, there's heat
involved that is warming the water, and heating water,
combined with concentration of hardness through evaporation
precipitates the scale forming compounds as filterable solids
It coats pipes, heat exchangers and has a big effect on
efficiency. Our system does is eliminates the creation of
scale and it also removes any existing scale from a process
As water evaporates, the dissolved minerals will concentrate.
These minerals and contaminants will eventually reach a
concentration where they will precipitate as scale and
interfere with the performance of both the tower and the
cooling system itself. Typically, chemicals were added to the
water to inhibit the formation of scale, control algae and
bacterial, and provide corrosion protection. Solar-AQUA Plus
eliminates the need for any chemicals. "Basically, with the
reaction of the Solar-AQUA Plus, we are able to modify the
crystal structure of the scale compound (calcium carbonate),
changing it from calcite to aragonite.
"Solar-AQUA Plus is a combination of noble and semi-noble
metals. The Metal is given off over time and is the key to the
system. It modifies the scale, and a very thin coating of it
ends up on the pipe walls (plastic or metal), which serves as
a corrosion inhibitor,". "It also raises the pH level of the
water system to one that is not conducive to corrosion. It
actually gives off a low voltage current because of the
reaction of the copper, zinc, and water and develops an
electrical field that kills algae.
home product or appliance, proper installation is your
responsibility. Make sure you have the tools necessary
for correct installation, or hire a plumber to install
the unit. Remember… installation takes very little
time, so the charge for this should be minimal. System
is a solid device. This device is mounted by a plumber
on the outline of the Tank.
SYSTEM is fitted between the outlet of Tank and the
supply line. Any plumber can install it within 20-30
Why Solar-AQUA plus Treated Water is Beneficial to your
No more soap build-up on their skin. Skin stays softer and
healthier when its natural oils are allowed to remain and
aren't covered by a mineral build-up.
Less soap is needed to cleanse the skin. This is especially
important with younger children. Their skin is usually more
delicate and sensitive to the irritants that are found in many
soaps and cleaning products. Remember, with Solar-Aqua plus
treated water, a little soap or shampoo goes a very long way.
Hair is softer and easier to manage when there isn't a
build-up of minerals coating it. This means it's easier to
brush and de-tangle
Advantages of Solar-AQUA plus Treated Water
Having Solar-Aqua plus treated water saves you money. When
your water is Solar-Aqua plus treated water, you use much less
soap and fewer cleaning products. Your budget will
automatically reflect the savings.
Your plumbing will last longer. Hard water can cause a build
up of scale from mineral deposits. Over time, pipes can clog,
water flow can diminish, and water pressure can be reduced.
This doesn't happen with Solar-Aqua plus treated water.
Your hot water heater will last longer. Scale and lime
build-up created by minerals will not take place if your water
is Solar-Aqua plus treated water. This adds life to your hot
water heater. Also, if you don't have deposits in your hot
water heater, it will cost approximately 20% less to heat the
water that your family does use. At the. end of a year, these
savings can really add up.
Additional Benefits of Solar-AQUA plus Treated Water
Probably the first thing you'll notice is that you have to
purchase a lot less soap. Whether it's dish detergent,
shampoo, or laundry soap, you'll use less of it. The reason is
because Solar-Aqua plus treated water has greater washing
power. You can use less and get superior results. Normally,
you will find that you can use 1/2 to 2/3 less soap with the
same or even better results.
Your clothes last longer and remain brighter longer if they
are washed in Solar-Aqua plus treated water. The reason is
that normal water leaves mineral particles in the weave of
most fabrics. This causes them to look dull and dingy. Also,
your washing machine will last longer, too, because it won't
be subject to a build-up of minerals and deposits.
Rings and stains won't darken your bathroom fixtures.
Glasses and dishes won't streak.
Scrubbing floors and tile will be easier and faster because
you won't have the film and soap scum that hard water creates.
Your skin is softer when you bathe with Solar-Aqua plus
treated water. You will leave your bath or shower feeling
refreshed with your skin feeling truly clean. Also, rough, dry
skin will naturally diminish.
If you color your hair, it will keep its radiance longer if it
is washed in Solar-Aqua plus treated water.
What exactly is hard water?
>>> Hard water is
defined as containing more than 1 GPG (grain per gallon) of
dissolved minerals (including Fluoride Arsenic).
Does it needs maintenance?
Does a salt-softener adds sodium to water supply?
>>> Yes, A
salt-based water softener removes the hardness minerals –
calcium and magnesium – from water and replaces them with
small amounts of sodium or potassium (if you use potassium
chloride). Our system does not uses salt. Therefore, it add no
salt or potassium to your water supply.
will your system treat?
>>> Up to 24 gallons per minute.
How easy is if to install the System?
>>> If you’ve done a little plumbing, we think you’ll
probably be able to install our softener. Take a look at the
basic installation instructions and decide for yourself. With
proper fittings a plumber should be able to complete
installation in 15-30 minutes in most cases. Remember, no
bypass is necessary, it’s a simple straight through
Can I use more
than one of the system to increase the ‘grains per gallon’
No, our units are ‘tuned’
to effectively treat up to 25 grains per gallon of hardness.
Over a period
of time, will the system get rusted or choke due to scalling?
