You see a device either inside or outside your home that is called a water softener and you know it softens water. Do you ever wonder how water softeners work? There is a science to it and Hague Water has it down to an art. Let us do the honor of breaking down the science behind how water softeners operate.
Each water softener contains a bed of resin beads that the water moves through. During this phase, the water is considered hard water because it contains calcium and magnesium. Ion exchange takes place when the water moves through the resin beads by replacing hardness ions with soft ions which is the result of soft water.
