How do Water Softener Salt Tablets work?

Water Softener Salt Tablets 25kg individualWater softener salt tablets, 25kg or 10kg bags of tablet salt, work via a process known as ‘ion exchange’. Resin beads within the water softeners help to create soft water from hard water. As a result, the hard water goes over the resin beads to help remove magnesium and calcium minerals. 

The water softener salt are then flushed into the plumbing system. The tablets then replace them with non-dangerous sodium ions. Therefore, completing the ion exchange.

At some stages of the process, the resin beads will need to recharge in order to carry on removing hard minerals. After that, they are ready to exchange the ions and soften the water, as the salt dissolves the minerals all over again.

What is Hard Water?

Water softener salt tablets help break down hard water, but what exactly is it? Hard water is water that comprises of a high percentage of essential minerals, unlike soft water.

Rainfall is classed as soft water until it reaches the surface, soaks up and dissolves certain minerals. These minerals normally consist of, but are not limited to: magnesium, calcium and bicarbonates. Furthermore, hard water is classed as better for drinking, as its a healthier option because of this.

For that reason, it may seem like the right option. However, there are very good reasons for softening water. Hard water makes performing everyday household tasks exceedingly difficult and increasingly more time consuming. As a result, the added mineral element causes it to have undesirable effects on basic jobs that should be fairly simple.

Dishes start gaining residue, clothes become dirtier and washed hair becomes more lifeless. Because of this, hard water is proven to be less energy efficient.

How can our Salt Tablets be used?

All water softener tablet salts on the market have the same function when used in a softener. They all improve the efficiency of a water system and have a positive impact on the environment.

Our popular, premium quality Water Softener Salt Tablets can be used both domestically and commercially. Even when use in residential properties would be rarer due to the large quantity.

In a domestic environment the salt tablets can cause several advantageous outcomes due to their properties:

  • Limescale is eradicated from plugholes and surfaces, which are notorious for gathering chalky deposits in showers, baths and sinks.
  • Boilers suffer less damage than they normally would over a normal shelf life. As a result, the central heating system operates at a higher level than it would without the tablets.
  • Home appliances become more durable. For example: kettles, washing machines, dishwashers all have a longer shelf life with the use of water softener salt tablets
  • A lot of people are unaware of this that the hydro salt can help on a cosmetic level for residents. The shower water will contain less mineral content and is less prone to blockages. Resulting in softer skin, along with hair becoming healthier and shinier.

How many Water Softener Salt Tablets does a system need?

There isn’t a specific number of tablets that need to be applied. However, the tank should be around HALF FULL with Water Softener Salt Tablets to facilitate its purpose. If the percentage ratio is significantly less or more than this, the tablets will not work to their optimal level. Therefore, the minerals will not be removed sufficiently.

Buyers can often be concerned about overfilling or underfilling their tank with it. Along with being worried about the effects it may have if either happens.

Foremost, two other main factors should be considered when using water softener salt tablets. These are the hardness of the water and the water softener’s age. If the water has been producing large amounts of deposits and residue, it may be running out of salt. This means add more tablets and vice versa.

Over time a good rule to follow is that the water system needs monitoring constantly. Please specifically checking the tank once a month and review the salt level the correct way to ensure purity. Furthermore, if a salt bridge has formed, then the area may be too high in humidity.
