How A Water Softener Works
Water softener

The bed of the softener consists of ion exchange material. The softening material is made up of permanent insoluble anions to which sodium cations are chemically bonded. The hard water enters the exchange tank. As it flows through it, the hardness cations are drawn to the anions of the exchange material. In the process the hardness minerals are absorbed and a chemically equivalent number of sodium ions are released into the water. In brief, harmless sodium ions have replaced the trouble-producing hardness ions.
