Water supplies oftentimes contain hard minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Hard water can leave spots on your dishes, irritate your skin and cause many other problems. A water softener is a device that is plumbed right into your home water intake. Water softeners operate on the ion exchange process where water passes through a media bed containing small plastic resin beads that is supersaturated with sodium. When water passes through this media bed, hard minerals such as calcium and magnesium attach to the beads and don’t pass through into your water supply. Sodium has a weaker attraction to the beads so it is released into the water, leaving your water softer and calcium and magnesium free.
