While developing the unique water management solution A+, the needs, wishes and habits of the users of water softeners were taken into account: simple to install, manage and control. This resulted into a product that looks anything but technical. It also combines the functions of related devices in a modular way, so as to keep meeting the family’s changing needs. The result is an integrated concept that is very different from any other system in the market.
Euraqua Europe is member of the Pollet Water Group (PWG).
