Culligan’s New High Efficiency Water Softener for Commercial Use Launches in Europe

Culligan® has introduced the innovative Culligan High Efficiency (HE) Water Softener Series for commercial water treatment in Europe - the system was released in North America in July 2011.  The Culligan HE Softener Series can dramatically reduce a company's water use and, therefore, its operational costs. The softener system offers a range of advanced features and options to meet a customer's particular water usage and quality requirements.  Additionally, the Culligan HE Softener Series addresses common ease-of-use challenges. Its remote display can be placed up to 60 meters (200 feet) away from the softener, making it easy to monitor the system even if it is located in an area that is difficult to access or far from a maintenance office. Additionally, the system's five year battery back-up retains programming parameters and historical data, which eliminates the need to reset parameters after a power outage.

Culligan has a team of highly skilled professionals available to assess customer needs and then design, manufacture, install, train and service its customers over the lifespan of the equipment.  The Culligan HE Softener Series is available in Italy, the UK and Spain, and will be released in France later in 2012.
