Water Softener 10"
is a device to soften hard water. Water Softeners reduce the Calcium
and Magnesium in hard water there by reducing the hardness.
the salts responsible for hardness from the water, namely Calcium
and Magnesium. In the softener there are millions of tiny polymer
beads (resin) which carry a Sodium ion charge. As the water flows
over this resin, the Sodium ion thereby softening the water. Sodium
is extremely soluble in water and does not precipitate on heating,
thus eliminating all the problems associated with hard water.
When all the Sodium ions have been extracted by the hard water,
the resin is regenerated by washing it in a concentrated salt solution
(brine). This allows the AquaSoft Water Softener to be used again
and again. (The process of washing the resin in a concentrated solution
of brine is called regeneration).
