How does a water softener work?

Home water softener systems are pressurized water conditioning devices. These systems force hard water through a bed of cation exchange media for the purpose of exchanging the objectionable calcium and magnesium ions for sodium or potassium ions. This process results in softened water, which is more desirable for home use.

Water softeners are rated in terms of grains of capacity. This capacity measurement refers to the ability of the unit to remove the stated number of grains of hardness from a supply of water. The capacity of a water softener depends on the amount of salt used to regenerate it, plus a variety of other design factors such as regeneration flow rates.

Water containing calcium and magnesium, is described as hard water. Most homes have some form of hard water present. Water spots, white residue, soap scum and ring around the toilets common seen in your shower and sink is from the residue of hard water. When you remove the calcium and magnesium using the water softening process of negative and positive ion exchange, scaling and spotting in the kitchen, bathroom and other faucets in the house will no longer be a problem.

There are many other benefits of a water softener:

  • A water softener will use less soap and detergent because the calcium and magnesium is no longer adversely reacting with soap
  • Your hair will be shinier and fuller because the minerals are no longer weighing down on your hair
  • Your skin will be softer and cleaner because soft water rinses cleaner than hard water
  • Household cleaning will be less of a chore since there will be no more water spots and stains

Your home appliances will work more efficiently and last longer because soft water reduces scale build-up in your pipes over time!
