Water Softening Treatment Process
Water softeners utilize a process called ion exchange. A typical water softener consists of a softener tank and brine tank. Specially formulated resin beads fill the softener tank, while salt or potassium chloride pellets fill the brine tank.
As water enters the softener, it flows through the resin beads. Resin has a negative charge, which attracts the positively charged minerals in the water. Eventually, the beads reach their softening capacity and become unable to attract additional mineral ions. At this point, the softener tank regenerates with the help of the brine tank. During regeneration, salty water from the brine tank flows into the softener tank and washes mineral deposits from the resin beads. The regenerated water and the mineral deposits are flushed out using a discharge hose before the system reverts back to softening.
