Softening Resin ProSoft™ Gold
ProSoft Gold — SWT found a great way to save you some money and still get the job done. ProSoft Gold is a 7% crosslinked softening resin that is designed for low or non-chlorinated waters. It is perfect for well water and non-turbulator applications. It has excellent exchange capability and every bag is pre-washed and rinsed so that you don't have to do it in the field.

PRESSURE DROP — The graph above shows the expected pressure loss per foot of bed depth as a function of flow rate at various temperatures.
ER10001 Backwash Expansion Graph
BACKWASH — The graph above shows the expansion characteristics as a function of flow rate at various temperatures.
ProSoft Gold is a standard crosslinked cation resin optimized for residential and commercial applications. This type of resin is easier to regenerate than the higher crosslinked resins. ProSoft Gold has marginal resistance to chlorine and other oxidants and is not ideal for high temperature and other high stress applications.

ER10001 Hardness Leakage Graph
CAPACITY AND LEAKAGE — Capacity and leakage data are based on 2:1 Ca:Mg ratio, 500 ppm TDS as CaCO3, 0.2% hardness in the salt, and 10% brine concentration applied co-currently through the resin over 30 minutes. No engineering downgrade has been applied.
