House Water Softener

The house water softener functions on the method that ions of the calcium and magnesium are to be replaced by the sodium and potassium ions. It is due to this reason that these appliances have a resin tank, where the replacement of the calcium and magnesium ion is done by the sodium and magnesium ion.

The resin tank has a bead containing the sodium and magnesium ion over it. When the water is flown over these beads in the resin tank the replacement of ions takes place making the water soft.
