How They Work

Water softeners are also called ion exchange units as they remove ions of calcium, magnesium, and sometimes iron from drinking water and exchange them for sodium or potassium. It is the former ions that are removed that make hard water. It’s the resin beads inside which will trap the unwanted ion minerals.

Is it safe to drink?

Softened water is considered safe to drink as the softener salt is only used to soften the resin that acts on the water and no water goes into the water supply. Although softened water has increased levels of sodium it is not the same as table salt aka sodium chloride.

How long do water softeners last?

A good water softener system will be able to last around 10-15 years and with proper care, you can ensure that the lifespan of your unit will last its full capacity.

How often should a water softener regenerate?

Regular regenerations are best as they will keep the resin bed active. This should be every 2-3 days although highly efficient softeners will generate every day or even multiple times a day.
