Water softening utilizes a process called “ion exchange” to remove dissolved hard water minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron and manganese. These minerals can’t be trapped by filter, so a molecular reaction is required. Water softeners have resin beads that hold onto sodium, and as the hard water flows through the resin, the sodium is swapped for the hard water minerals. The hard water minerals are trapped in the softener and a minuscule amount of sodium flows out with the softened water.
Diamond Pure Water Softeners are easy to use and maintain – there are no filters to change or flush. Simply fill with salt when needed, knowing that our advanced regeneration technology reduces overall salt use.
