Soft Water without the Salt & Hassle
There is a common misconception that salt softens water when in reality ion exchange resin softens water. All water softeners generally work the same way. Water is passed through an ion exchange resin filter which makes a bond with the Totally Dissolved Solids (TDS) or hardness that are in the water and allow the softened water to pass through. This resin filter can only absorb so much TDS before it needs to be cleaned or regenerated. Salt or Potassium Chloride are the two most common agents used to clean or regenerate resin. After the resin filter has been regenerated it can continue to soften the water. Simply put, the resin cleans the water and the salt cleans the resin.
How Water Softeners Work
A typical water softener is an appliance that requires water, electricity and salt to perform the regeneration process. When operating properly the softener backwashes the resin, doses it in salt, then rinses out the salt before putting the system back into service. The problem with automatic water conditioners is that the valves, motors and other components necessary to perform this operation are subject to the water, salt, electricity and the harsh Florida sun. This is not a good combination for any appliance.
