When picking up salt for your water softener, you may have noticed salt called “iron out.” Your first thought may have been, “Does this literally remove the iron?” It does not remove all of the iron but it does help remove some of the iron compounds. If your water tested high for iron, then you may want to consider this type of salt. It has been proven to help reduce the iron in water and reduces the rust build-up in your water softener and pipes.

There are benefits of using iron out salt and we’ve pinpointed a few for you:

  • Taste of the water will improve
  • Rust stains will not build up as quickly
  • Reduces the amount of rust on pipes and other appliances, such as the dishwasher, washing machines, water heater, sinks, and bathtubs
  • Reduces rust (iron) buildup in the softener’s resin bed
