The 48,000 Grain Capacity Tier1 Water Softener and 4-Stage Ultra-Filtration Hollow Fiber Drinking Water Filter System Kit pairs the whole home filtration functionality of the water softener with the point of use water enhancement offered by the ultrafiltration system. This total package includes the water softener with brine tank, ultrafiltration system with filters, and four reusable glass bottles to use at your leisure. The 48,000 Grain Capacity Tier1 Water Softener offers a hard water combating solution which uses anion charged resin to capture and reduce calcium and manganese that would otherwise contribute to scale build up. By protecting your home from scale, the effectiveness of soaps and detergents is enhanced and you help protect your pipes and appliances from lowered efficiencies and early mechanical failure. The valve head of the softener uses LCD display to share important operational information and has customizable settings for optimal user programming and regeneration cycle control. The Ultra-Filtration system features innovative twist and lock filter change design to make exchanging your filters easier than ever. The 4 stage system includes a 5 micron sediment pre-filter (Stage 1), carbon block pre-filter (Stage 2), 1 micron sediment pre-filter (Stage 3), and a hollow fiber ultrafiltration membrane post-filter (Stage 4). Sediment and carbon filters filter out larger contaminants before water reaches the ultrafiltration membrane which reduces the remaining very fine contaminants to produce a crystal clear refreshing glass of water. Enjoy the benefits of these point of entry and point of use systems and the great water they will produce. Tier1 is ready to protect every drop.

Grains of Hardness

When a water softener is referring to 'grains' it's talking about how many grains of hardness it can process before regenerating. Grains of hardness processed depends on how large your household is, as well as how hard your water actually is.

For example, a family of 4 with 20 grains of hardness: Your family of 4 will use approx. 300 gallons of water per day (4 people x 75 gallons per person). Since the water has 20 grains of hardness, you'll need to treat 6,000 grains of hardness per day (300 X 20). You can go about 7-1/2 days before regenerating (45,000/6,000).

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is the Max. Hardness of the Water (in GPG)? During set-up, the customer customizes the regeneration cycle based on their water hardness level

How much is the max. Clear Water Iron Removal (ppm)? An iron filter is recommended for iron levels above 3ppm

Is it Demand Initiated or Timed? The WS-165-150 is demand initiated, the control valve features a water use probe (impeller), which measures water use

How long does the Regeneration Cycle take? Two hours

Will I experience a disruption in water service during the Regeneration Cycle? Yes, there will be a disruption to water service during this time. Most of our customers schedule the Regeneration Cycle for 2:00 AM, ensuring there are no conflicts. If a disruption in water service during the Regeneration Cycle is an issue, select the Tier1 Automatic Bypass Control Valve water softener!

How much salt do I use in the 100L square brine tank? We recommend using no more than three 40 pound bags of water softener salt

What is in the mineral tank? The system arrives to you pre-filled, ready for use with Cation Exchange Resin 8%

Does it have an indicator to notify me about low salt? No

What if my home is plumbed with PEX or CPVC supply tubing? Homes plumbed with PEX or CPVC supply tubing may require the use of compression fittings, such as the Sharkbite® brand. Due to varying sizes and configurations, compression fittings are not included with the water softener. If these fittings are required, they can be purchased for a reasonable price at most hardware stores.

Installation Guide

User Guide


  1. Test Resin Tank - the tank will have a temporary shipping cap, a master O-Ring, and a piece of tape covering the riser tube. The cap, master O-Ring (another is supplied) and the tape must be removed and discarded prior to attaching the control valve and the upper distributor. This water softener includes regular control valve connections and a bypass valve connection; therefore, a set of installation components has been included for each method of installation. As such, following installation, the installer will be left with an “extra set” of installation components (animated connectors, brine line flow control, master O-Ring, washers).
  2. Read the installation guides provided above.
  3. Unpack the Tier1 Essential Series WS-165-150 and ensure all parts pictured and listed above are present. Rotate the shutoff valve at the main water line to the OFF position
  4. Shut off the power supply to the water heater – only if you will be draining the tank
  5. Open the highest and lowest water faucets in your home (drainage and pressure allowance)
  6. Ensure you are aware of local laws and codes regarding the installation, use, and maintenance of water softeners
