How Do Salt Based Water Softeners Work? Salt based water softeners work according to a process called ion-exchange. This basically means that positively charged hard water ions in water(Ca+ and Mg+) are exchanged with a negatively charged ion and removed from water. The positively charged ions are introduced via ionic resin beads which are coated […]Continue reading
The short answer is- No, water softeners do not remove fluoride. This is because because water softeners exchange ions that are positively charged such as Magnesium and Calcium(common indicators of hard water) with negatively charged ions(usually Sodium). This exchange process removes the unwanted positive ions from the water into a separate brine solution that is […]Continue reading
What Is TDS? TDS or Total Dissolved Salts is a metric generally used to describe the hardness level of water. It basically tells us how many dissolved ions are present in our water. Generally, these dissolved ions are of calcium and magnesium, as they are most common in hard water. How common exactly? Let’s just […]Continue reading
