Water Softener Systems
Softeners are designed to remove hardness, iron, and manganese. As water passes through a bed of specially designed cation exchange resin beads inside the tank, the negatively charged resin attracts positively charged ions – the calcium (hardness), iron, and manganese elements. Once the resin reaches full capacity, the valve at the top will start a regeneration (cleaning) process using a salt and water solution from the brine tank. Then the process starts again.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a water softener if I have iron in my water?
- Because a water softener ALSO removes iron with the added benefit of softening your water and removing manganese.
- Also, Connecticut waters can be difficult to treat. We discovered water softening systems works great in high iron towns like East Hampton CT, Colchester CT, Marlborough CT, etc.
Can I use Salt or Potassium Chloride (KCL) for my Water Softener?
- Your water softener can use either salt or potassium chloride or a combination of both. If you are on a low-sodium diet, it’s better to use KCL. Salt will add sodium to your drinking water. Potassium Chloride will add potassium to your water.
