The Ultra HE (available now) and Premio HE (available from 1 November) are the latest models to join Monarch Water’s range of sustainable, high-efficiency water softeners.

Both softeners are high capacity, with flow rates of up to 65lpm and 61lpm, making them suitable for a range of applications. 

Building on the strength of the existing range, and featuring all its benefits, the new models measure 557H x 269W x 489D (Ultra HE) and 778H x 269W x489D (Premio HE). The Ultra’s high-efficiency capacity of 1,520 litres at 300ppm between regenerations makes it ideal for families up to 10 people, while the Premio, with a capacity of 3,040 litres at 300ppm can accommodate the needs of up to 20 people, or small commercial applications. The fact that they are powered by a single long-life lithium 9V battery means these twin tank softeners don’t need a power supply.

The Ultra HE and the Premio HE are fitted with the duplex series Sof’N’polish™ system, with double the contact time for ultra-soft water. Monarch’s resin beads have increased surface area, enabling greater capacity per regeneration when compared to regular resin.

The Ultra HE uses both tablet and block salt, and has class-leading flow rates of up to 65lpm, while the Premio HE uses tablet salt and has a flow rate of up to 61lpm.

These premium softeners also feature Monarch’s Opti-Brining® technology, which means that the units only regenerate the resin that’s been used, and consume 32% less water and 13% less salt than previous models.

The installation kit that accompanies every Ultra HE and Premio HE features Monarch Water’s unique Hi-flow Rapid-Fit bypass, which reduces installation components by up to 80%. These softeners come with kits suitable for 15mm or 22mm applications, with 28mm models also available. Another feature of these units are their reversible connections, which allow the softeners to be connected on the left or right hand side.

The built-in CPP (Customer Protect Programme) detects leaks, learns water usage patterns to regenerate accordingly, which saves on both salt and water. They also automatically adjust to BST and GMT time changes.

Both appliances benefit from Monarch's seven-year parts and two-years’ labour guarantee.
