Capital Means Excellence

Many people have learned from us, and many have tried duplicating us, however there is only one (1) Capital Water Softener. One of the original pioneers in water conditioning. Capital Water Softener has been building quality products since 1936. Quality built in, to allow quality to come out. As our motto goes, "You never had it so soft!" Only the best are allowed to display the Capital name.

FL-CFL & FLM-CFLM Two (2) Capital Water Softener Models designed and built with the customer in mind. Automatic soft water systems that work efficiently and economically.

You'll notice a big difference with a Capital Water Softener. Clothes laundered with conditioned water will last longer and feel softer. Even your skin and hair will feel softer. No more unsightly dull film on dishes, glassware, shower walls and doors, bath tubs, etc. Conditioned water saves you time and best of all saves you money. You can use less detergents, shampoo, and other costly cleaning agents. Plumbing maintenance and water heating cost could be greatly reduced. A Capital Water Softener will more than pay its own way and it will also increase the value of your home.

FLM SERIES TIMER

FLM-CFLM Series Timers are easy to adjust. Set the time of day and set the "people" dial, rotating it so that the number of people in the household is aligned with the grains per gallon of hardness. This automatically sets the gallons of water the unit will go thru before it has to regenerate. The regeneration time is Factory set to regenerate at 2:00 a.m.
