If you have installed a water treatment softener system in your business or industry, you realize it is serving a purpose. It is there to solve a range of hard water issues. Water softeners remove the hard minerals and iron from the water. This improves the ability of mechanisms to perform their tasks without being exposed to the risks of corrosion and stains. One vital component of any water softener is salt.
Putting Your Machinery at Risk
Water treatment softener systems remove the hard minerals using resin beads. However, when the resin beads become saturated with calcium and other minerals, the process is no longer active or effective. The softener requires regeneration. Regeneration means the reintroduction of salty water. This occurs when the salty mixture exits the brine tank and enters the media tank. The salt regenerates the resin and removes the hard water minerals which are then flushed away.
Do Not Forget to Add the Salt
If you do not keep salt in the brine tank of your water softener, considerable damage can result. Corrosion and other issues occur. This impacts the capabilities of machinery to perform their tasks efficiently and effectively. The damage can be long-term.
