Water Softener Repair Boerne TX
Salt-based water softeners reduce the hardness of water by replacing the minerals through an ion exchange process that cause hardness in water, like calcium and magnesium.
A water softener system collects hardness minerals within its conditioning tank and from time to time flushes them away to drain.
Ion exchangers are often used for water softening. When an ion exchanger is applied for water softening, it will replace the calcium and magnesium ions in the water with other ions, for instance sodium or potassium. The exchanger ions are added to the ion exchanger reservoir as sodium and potassium salts (NaCl and KCl).
