What are Hard Water Softeners?
Water softener are basically ion exchange systems that help in removing harmful minerals like magnesium and calcium from water entering the home. Such minerals are responsible for causing limescale and when they are removed, the water gets soft.
Since hard water is harmful and it leads to clogging of pipes, the water softening technique removes the ions to make it soft. Apart from treating the calcium and magnesium that makes the water hard, water softeners are also used for the purpose of removing iron from the water.
