What is a water softener?
A water softener removes the minerals that cause water to be hard. When water contains calcium and magnesium it is called hard water. Hard water can create several problems throughout your home. Hard water can clog pipes, prevent soap and detergent from dissolving, and leave behind water spots. It creates a scale buildup inside your pipes and appliances reducing the efficiency of your home.
How do they work?
When hard water passes through the home water softener’s resin bed, calcium and magnesium are removed through an ion exchange process, so only softened water passes through. Once the resin bed fills up with hardness ions, it must be cleaned. Salt is typically used in the cleaning process and restores the resin to a “clean” state so the ion exchange process can begin again.
