As water flows into your home it contains minerals such as Magnesium and Calcium known as hard water. Hard water causes a build up of residue in your plumbing and appliances.
A water softener will remove these hard minerals before entering your home by a process called ion exchange. Ion exchange is when hard water passes thru the media inside the tank called resin. The media acts like a magnet by grabbing the hard minerals in the water and allowing the soft water to flow into your home.
Every few weeks the resin needs to be cleaned. This is where the salt comes in…
The salt (AKA brine) acts as the cleaning agent. It will go thru a process called regeneration which is similar to a washing machine. Example: the water will fill, rinse and repeat making the media magnetic again. All this happens while you sleep and is by a one time setting of your control valve.
