Gildersleeve is proud to offer the CSI Water Treatment System

BathtimeSoften Your Water for Better Living!

The tall softener tank contains special resin beads whose surfaces attract hardness “ions.” These particles cling to the resin’s surface and stay there until they are flushed down a drain during the regeneration process.

The regeneration cycle performs an “ion exchange.” It is the simplest and most natural means to soften water. Unwanted minerals are removed from water without using chemicals. You’ll feel the difference with your first bath or shower!

Signature Duplex Water Softeners

CSIsig-duplexCSI’s Signature Duplex water softeners are the finest in the softening industry. This versatile model softens water through one resin tank while a second resin tank remains in a stand-by mode. When the integral water meter indicates a need to regenerate, the stand-by tank automatically is put on line to provide uninterrupted soft water while the exhausted resin tank is regenerated. This freshly regenerated tank will then remain in stand-by until the meter triggers another regeneration. The Signature Duplex can regenerate anytime, day or night, without hard water breakthrough. And, because soft water is always available, regeneration is accomplished with treated water, keeping the resin bed cleaner than conventional softeners.

Reverse Osmosis

reverseosmosisReverse Osmosis (R.O.) is one of the most convenient and economical methods of reducing unwanted contaminants in your drinking water. Reverse Osmosis is the process by which water molecules are forced, by water pressure, through a semipermeable membrane. Most of the impurities and other contaminants are rinsed to the drain while the refined water is routed to a special holding tank. The Microline® TFC-3 Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System uses the latest advances in plastics technology to produce the most streamlined and user friendly R.O. system on the market. In addition, this system is validated by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) Water Quality Assosiation (WQA) under Industry Standard S-300-91 and by the state of Wisconsin’s Department of Industry, Labor and Human Relations.

By Using The Air We Breathe REACTR™ Removes Foul Water Odor, Taste and Stains


REACTR™ Water Treatment Systems by CSI represent an advanced innovation in the treatment of water using a natural aeration process that…

• Improves bad taste, odor and color

• Eliminates sediment problems

• Stops red iron stains & sulfur odor

All without the use of chemicals!

Here’s how it works: Air efficiently mixes with water and permits iron particles to be trapped and sulfur smell to be exhausted. You get clear water that tastes and smells fresh!

Put Your Extra Pump Energy to Work

The REACTR™ design defines efficiency. The aeration tank has a full 1″ opening for installation before the pressure tank. A well pump exerts its full energy potential to push water and pull air to naturally treat foul tasting and smelling water.

An ingenious manifold design on the top of the REACTR™ tank combines air injection into the water and free air venting of excess pressure and foul odors. These innovations provide advantages competing aeration systems can’t match.

  • Water-SystemEasy Installation and Maintenance
  • Reduced Installation
  • Increased Air Draw and Mixing
  • Diminished Diffuser Plugging
  • Continuous Rinsing of the Tank
  • Decreased Water Line Plugging
  • Less Back Pressure On the Nozzle
  • Corrosion-Proof Air Check Valve 

Once the contaminants have thoroughly oxidized they can be trapped by the REACTR Filter filled with REACTR™ Blend Media. REACTR™ Blend is a proportioned mix of three proven filter medias. They provide a spectrum of filtering capabilities for a wide range of water problems.

Typical REACTR™ Installation

Two-TanksThe REACTR™ VS

With the advent of constant pressure (variable speed) pumping systems, CSI Water Treatment went back to the drawing board to engineer a REACTR™System that will effectively treat iron, manganese and sulfur gas when a constant pressure well system is utilized – the REACTR VS™.The REACTR VS™will work equally well for jet pump type systems, where typical air injection systems won’t. Incorporating a quiet, high output, oil less air compressor, the REACTR VS™ provides the aeration power for chemical free treatment of problem well water. For those really tough jobs the REACTR VS™is designed to add the Oxyclean™option for chlorinating the entire system every backwash cycle.

Special Options for Special Problems

Special-ProblemsThe REACTR™ is also available with an optional Oxy-Clean system that can clean your water supply system from the aeration tank through the filter. Chlorine is introduced at the aeration tank manifold and removed in the filter bed during backwashing. The lines and the pressure tank are cleaned without adding any chemicals to your drinking water. No other system on the market today can offer you this protection.

While the REACTR™ stops odor, iron stains and adjusts acid water, a softener might be required for certain hard water conditions. Gildersleeve will be able to determine if your water requires a softener and recommend the proper equipment.
