A water softener is an appliance that lowers the concentration harmful minerals in water, including calcium, magnesium and other metals. If left alone, these compounds can react poorly with dish and hand soap, can harm skin, and can damage piping. The most common process to soften water is lime softening. Lime softening uses limewater, also known as calcium hydroxide, to remove hard elements, such as magnesium and calcium, through the process of precipitation.

Answer: The resin beads in the water softener system removes calcium, magnesium and other minerals that make the water hard as it goes through the water softener. During the ion exchange process, the hardness ions in the water are replaced with sodium (salt) ions in the resin bed, resulting in soft water. As the resin beads in the water softener become coated with calcium and magnesium ions, their capacity to soften hard water decreases. Every so often, salt water is backwashed over the resin beads sending the hard water ions down the drain and putting the water softener back to a soft water state.

Answer: A water softener uses millions of tiny beads called resin to remove certain ions from the water. This ion exchange is the process of removing hard water ions from the water they stick to the resin beads. Once the resin beads become fully saturated with hard water ions, it uses either sodium or potassium brine during a regeneration cycle to basically? clean the hard water ions off of the resin beads and then is ready to once again remove hard water ions.
