Softners Watermax 62APQ
Model #: 62APQ ( Softening / Hydrogen-sulfite (H2S) reduction )
WaterMax® is a patented, comprehensive water softener system; truly the right water cleaner for our age of conservation — highly efficient in water, salt and time.
From our computerized solid-state Systems Control to our exclusive directional flow screens, only the most advanced manufacturing processes and materials have been used to build WaterMax® water softeners. We employ the most innovative engineers in the industry and have won 7 U.S. patents ensuring that WateMax® provides years of trouble-free water treatment in your home, which is why it is known throughout the world.
Watermax® regenerates on demand, by calendar or by exact water usage.
The flexibility of the solid state System Control makes it possible. A 12-volt low voltage power supply powers the Systems Control.

Models 63MAQ, 63BEQ, 63MXQ, 62AMQ and 62APQ are certified by WQA for barium and radium reduction as verified and substantiated by test data. All other models are not certified by WQA and make no health claims.
- 63BEQ Municipally supplied chlorinated water only.
- 62AJQ Calcite will add additional hardness to water before softening.
- 63MDQ Any hardness over 10 gpg will increase the chance of calcium carbonate precipitation. As the hardness increases so does the chance of this precipitation. Must use citric acid to regenerate along with salt.
- System must Regeneration every 96 hours is required when iron is present in the raw water supply unless noted otherwise. Use Salt Setting #3 or #4.
- Iron reduction claims limited to 5 ppm in the state of Wisconsin.
- 62APQ Must have a minimum of 2 ppm iron and a minimum of 200 ppm TDS.
- When adding media in the field, check for proper settings.
- Rate of flow must be verified at the end of 1/2″ I.D. drain line.
Some model has no backwash flow control button or retainer. Must have a minimum of 7 gpm @ 30 psi available for proper backwash. For the purposes of plumbing appliance sizing, only the rated service flow rate and corresponding pressure loss may be used. Prolonged operation of a water softener at flow rates exceeding the tested service flow rate may compromise performance.
