Smart & Environmentally Friendly Whole House Limescale Control. Protect your home from limescale and corrosion internally, inside pipes and boilers. It makes cleaning easier as limescale residues wipe easily off dried surfaces. Compact with a simple media change every 60,000 litres. We recommend that you install a bypass for easy media change. Simple, environmentally friendly, and economical.
This product uses polyphosphate which is proportionally dosed into the water at 5ppm (or 5 mg/l). It cannot over-dose the water for the level is always between 3-5ppm.
Polyphosphate is a food-grade, non-toxic substance that is used widely in coffee machine filters and jug filters and has a long-established record of being safe to use and drink. Therefore, this product can be installed at the entry point of a property and serve the entire building.
This new technology is better than alternative solutions such as salt-based softeners, which are the most heavyweight, expensive, and environmentally damaging and are not an option if you have no sewerage services and your own septic tank. Salty water down the drain is an environmental disaster, especially for waste water treatment.
The Osmio MaxiSOFT is suitable for properties with up to a maximum of 5 bathrooms (maximum flow 90 litres per minute) where there is 1" or smaller pipework coming in. Please note this product does NOT come supplied with any media to fill it with. Please add the Maxisoft Refill to your order if you are newly purchasing the system.
Each refill lasts for approximately 60,000 litres and is available to order as a 1 kg tub.

How it works
The Osmio MaxiSOFT works by proportionally dosing the water with 3-5 ppm of polyphosphate. Polyphosphates are food grade, non toxic and widely used in jug and coffee filters. The system can be fitted to the entry point of a property without the need for a separate bypass to the kitchen tap (i.e. it is drinkable). The media replacement is quick and easy and lasts up to 60,000 litres.
How it does compare to salt softeners?
Salt based softeners actually take out the minerals and add in around 150 mg/l of sodium carbonate (not drinkable). This makes a lather effect with soap and the salt you add into it is used to backwash the resin in the tank. This flushes salty water down the drain which is an environmental problem and cannot be done on septic tanks. Installation must involve a bypass to the kitchen cold tap comply with WRAS Regs.
The Osmio MaxiOFT gets even better results than a salt softener when you consider only its “internal” effect. This is where the water cannot dry and therefore the material contact is protected from the formation of scale and corrosion which is where all the expensive plumbing problems happen. The Osmio MaxiSOFT does not remove the need for cleaning off the appearance of limescale nor does it affect how soap lathers. It just makes the appearance of limescale which is less prone to forming and mineral residues less do not stick as much once the water has dried on a surface, making it easier to wipe off.

Based on current information we have, it sounds like the Acqua Brevetti MiniDUE ¾″ Liquid Water Softener - 30 LPM is the right size for you.
The MiniDUE Operation Manual advises 6 monthly inspections to ensure proper operation and possible need for "Extraordinary Maintenance" both of which are supposed to be performed only by Acqua Brevetti authorised personnel. Is there a network of authorised personnel in the UK? Thanks.
We have had this installed today is it as simple as it seems. How often does the pouch need replacing.
It has been installed on main water entry point, is this ok for drinking water for us and pets?
I'm building a new home and shall be using the Pro II - XL in house filter system, so assume it is best to place this Maxisoft unit after the full house filter system?
I see all the installations are on a horizontal axis, can the unit be installed on vertical pipe work?
