X-Factor Series FESLX


A real breakthrough in water treatment equipment, Lancaster’s “Ironsoft” will not only soften hard water, but will remove up to 10 ppm of Ferrous (clear water) iron and/or Ferric (red water) iron.

Our “Ironsoft” family of high-performance microprocessor control valves provides the ultimate in system capabilities and water treatment benefits. These dependable and easy-to-install units assure the dealer and homeowner that the system will perform reliably.

Backwash rates on the “Ironsoft” are a fraction of the requirements of ordinary iron filters, which allows the use of the “Ironsoft” on relatively poor-producing wells.

Additionally, “Ironsoft” is not sensitive to pH and can be operated in acidic water, which would not be compatible with an ordinary iron filter.

Periodic regeneration with water softener salt is required and the use of resin cleaner is recommended for maximum resin efficiency.

Available in a two-tank model or the space-saving cabinet style.


  • The electronic control valve with demand initiated or time clock initiated regeneration allows the dealer to precisely predict the use and installation of the proper system to achieve the desired results for the homeowner

Iron is highly objectionable. It imparts a metallic taste to water. Much worse, it stains practically everything with which it comes in contact. Iron-bearing water is usually clear and colorless with dissolved ferrous iron. Exposure to air causes it to oxidize to ferric iron, cloud up and deposit a yellowish or reddish brown sediment of ferric hydroxide. Ferric hydroxide causes staining. Manganese can accompany iron, producing objectionable dark brown or black stains.

Water softeners remove unwanted hardness and minerals from your household water – whether from private well or municipal source. Water softeners in combination with filters, neutralizers, and reverse osmosis systems can meet the most challenging water problems.


Uses fine-mesh resin, (smaller bead size) for more efficient grains exchange capacity and better filtration. Removes up to 10 ppm of ferrous (clear water) iron and/ or ferric (red water) iron. Backwash rates on Ironsoft are a fraction of the requirement of ordinary iron filters, which allows the use of the Ironsoft on relatively poor producing wells. Solid-state microprocessor based LCD control valve.
