Hard water is water with a high mineral content, and the desire to soften it comes from the water's negative effects on household appliances. It can cause unwanted buildup on plumbing fixtures, kitchen appliances, and pipes.
There are also speculations that high mineral water is associated with some health problems, but this has not been proven. To remove the water's "hardness," water conditioner salt is used in a water purifier to stimulate an ion exchange.
During the ion exchange, the minerals in the unfiltered water are exchanged with sodium ions from the salt, the hard minerals are flushed out, and the water becomes "soft."
WATER SOFTNER COARSE SALT
Salt's sole purpose in your water softener is to regenerate the resin beads that actually take the hardness out of your water. This exchange does not make your water taste salty or significantly increase your sodium intake.
WATER SOFTNER FINE SALT
The only purpose of salt in a water softener is to regenerate the resin beads that take the hardness out of water. Softening will not deprive water of its essential minerals. Softening only deprives drinking water of minerals that cause the water to be hard, such as calcium, magnesium and iron.
Softener tablets are usually round in shape and are designed to help reduce the hardness in water. They are strong and smooth and are designed to remain intact and remove chemicals that make water hard. They are typically used in water purifiers and water softeners
