Is limescale buildup damaging your water fixtures and appliances?
Whole Property Water Softeners are the answer!
Why is it an issue?
Many Caribbean territories have ‘hard’ water (high levels of calcium and magnesium mineral deposits in the water). This is very damaging for many appliances and fixtures that use water and is a huge frustration for property owners. It makes bathrooms, taps, sinks, shower fixtures and glass look very dirty and rundown in a short period of time. Laundry detergents and other cleaning chemicals that depend on water are also less efficient.
Limescale also has a detrimental impact on more expensive equipment and their outputs such as ice and coffee machines. On a personal level, chlorine and minerals can also negatively impact the skin and hair, causing both to become dry and brittle.
How a Whole Property Water Softener can help
What does a Water Softener do?
A water softener collects hardness minerals within its conditioning tank and from time to time flushes them away to drain. Ion exchangers are often used for water softening. When an ion exchanger is applied for water softening, it will replace the calcium and magnesium ions in the water with other ions such as sodium or potassium.
Water Softeners protect your appliances and fixtures and greatly extend their functionality and lifespan. It makes cleaning easier through improving the efficacy of cleaning detergents and cleaning products. With the quality of water produced, one is guaranteed softer skin and hair.
Greater value for your investment!
Newport's whole property softeners have the added benefit of built in filtration!
Let’s be honest, water softeners are an investment to protect your investments (and your health). With an added value of whole house filtration, our softeners make your investment a little bit sweeter.
Newport’s Whole Property Water Softeners carry built in carbon filtration media, which treats the water coming to your entire property. This provides spring-like water from every tap in your home.
So along with a softener removing high levels of calcium and magnesium deposits, the carbon filtration media is effective at removing chlorine, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and bad taste and odor.

Maintenance, Salt & Regeneration
Our residential Water Softeners are generally low maintenance but they require an adequate supply of tablet salt to remove the limescale forming minerals from your water.
We often get questions about the salt use, here are just a few of them below.
120 lbs (3- 40lb bags)
(Defender™ iGen® 30C)
7lbs per regeneration (Defender™ iGen® 30C)
17 cycles of regeneration (Defender™ iGen® 30C)
Regeneration is based on water consumption.
For accuracy we would need to know the amount of cubic meters of water that you usually consume monthly.
35 gallons of water per regeneration. (Defender™ iGen® 30C/ Defender™ iGen® 45C)
Each regeneration takes 50 minutes to complete.
(Defender™ iGen® 30C/ Defender™ iGen® 45C)
We also cater to larger properties.
We'll work with you to find the perfect solution to fit your property size & needs
A whole house filter and softener, rather than being an off-the-shelf item, needs to be sized according to the property it is serving.
Here’s some of the information we need to ensure we can correctly size your system:
– Some idea of water usage during peak months/periods
– Square footage of property
– Size of main pipe to property
– Proposed location for system
– Do you currently have a tank and pump system
– Hardness level of your water (we take care of this)
Considerations for maintenance:
– On-going supply of salt required for softener to function effectively.
