All water softeners and whole-house filters are engineered, tested and distributed from our North American Regional facilities. All control valves are 100% wet tested and air tested before leaving the factory. Control valves are then set up to engineering specification for the particular unit, air tested a second time and then assembled into the finished product. All assembled products are packaged in durable, double walled high impact cardboard to ensure products arrive undamaged.
