If you are living in an area with hard water, you may have noticed your plumbing getting faulty more often. You may also have noticed unnecessary stains frequently building upon the basins and the efficiency decrease in overall water flow. And these are just some of the commonly identified problems; there’s much more to add like crusty faucets, spots on glassware, and soap scums in sinks and bathtubs. Not to mention dry skin and irritation…the list goes on. But guess what, you can avoid all this by simply installing a water softener. What does it do? Well, that will need a bit of a 10th-grade chemistry explanation. Remember that two negative charges attract each other. And atoms with one deficient electron (cation) or the extra electron (anion) e.g. disturbed state, will be attracted to each other. Now keeping that into account, let’s explain how a water softener operates.
Water is hard because of two culprits: magnesium and calcium, which are both positively charged. The water softener has resin beds inside that contain zeolite: a negatively charged group of atoms. The zeolite ions attract the positively charged magnesium and calcium ions as water pass through the softener, thus trapping the impurities in the resin bed, and releasing sodium salt instead. These minerals are then removed from the resin through the regeneration process. A good quality water softener will ensure that you and your family use water that is completely hazard-free, while economically friendly as you won’t have to spend a huge chunk of your salary on soaps, shampoos, and frequent repairs.
