What Is Water Softener?

Water softeners use negatively charged beads in a mineral tank to filter hard water by attracting calcium and magnesium. While the water travels, the minerals adhere to the beads. The minerals from the beads are periodically flushed from the beads using a solution of salt and water.

There are three main types of water softeners:

  • Ion exchange
  • Dual-tank
  • Salt-free

Water Softening vs. Water Filtration

Only “hard” minerals are removed from water by water softeners, which helps avoid problems like buildup on appliances, dry skin, and stains on freshly washed dishes. The goal of water filtration, on the other hand, is to produce water that tastes better and is safer by removing impurities like chlorine, sediments, and unfavorable compounds.

Many homeowners opt for a combination of water softening and filtration to produce the highest quality water for every purpose.

Water Softener FAQs

What is soft water?

Water described as “soft” contains little or no dissolved minerals or particulates.

How often should I add salt to my water softener?

This depends on how hard your water is and how much you use the system, but you can expect to need a refill two or three times per year.

Do I have to use salt in my water softener?

Salt-free water softeners use potassium chloride as a salt substitute. Potassium chloride is more expensive than regular salt and may be hard to find in some places.
