What Is A Water Softener, And How Does It Work?

Updated: Jun 1

A water softener is a filter system that removes excessive calcium and magnesium concentrations that produce hard water. When water passes through a Water Softener, the system filters out the hard water minerals, and the softened water exits the system to flow via the plumbing.


Water softeners, believe it or not, are similar to magnets. One end of a traditional bar magnet is "positive," while the other is "negative." Assume you have two bar magnets and are attempting to connect both positive ends. So, what happens next?

They are at odds with one another. It's impossible to connect with them no matter how hard you try. But what happens if you link one's positive end to the negative end of the others? Yes! They connect right away!


The essential principle of how Water Softeners function is that positive and negative things attract one another. The two main causes of hard water, calcium and magnesium, are both positively charged molecules. The hard water also travels through a filter filled with negatively charged resin beads as it goes through the softening mechanism. When with magnets, opposites attract as the hard water passes through the resin beads.


This concept also holds true when the system regenerates (or cleans) itself. Water and salt (both positively charged) wash through the resin beads during regeneration. In the same way that the positive charges in the salt, calcium, and magnesium reject each other in the magnet example, the positive charges in the salt, calcium, and magnesium repel each other. Calcium and magnesium separate from the resin beads and flow out with salty water.


We are pleased to introduce ourselves as one of the leading companies in the field of Water filtration equipment, all other relevant machines, and components. We have earned a high reputation in the industry for our quality, design, and performance.
