As people pay more and more attention to drinking water, water treatment equipment such as water purifiers, water softeners and pure water machines have entered people's lives. Some consumers do not know the various functions of water purification equipment.


How does a brine tank work


The water softener salt tank holds sodium, and the water softener also adds water, creating salt water. The water softener then uses the brine from the salt tank to regenerate its water softener resin. The float in the brine tank is used to keep the brine tank from overflowing.


A water softener's salt water tank is a relatively simple piece of equipment, but leaving it low in salt or having it too dirty inside can cause the water softener to not work properly, or even cause the salt water tank to overflow.


Knowing how your water softener's salt water tank works will help you keep it in good shape for years to come.


What is hard water?


When it rains, water seeps into the soil and into our groundwater supply, where it absorbs minerals. Water is a universal solvent - it grabs any minerals it comes across and dissolves them. Water considered "hard" is rich in dissolved minerals, especially calcium and magnesium. The higher the mineral concentration, the harder the water.


What does a water softener brine tank do and why?


A water softener salt (salt water) tank works by storing the dissolved salt in the water put into it by the water softener. Water softeners use dissolved water called brine to regenerate the water softening resin in the water softener tank.


The Water Softener Brine Tank contains a salt solution that rinses the mineral tank, replacing calcium and magnesium ions with sodium. A gauge on top of the mineral tank regulates the charge cycle. Valve assemblies direct water flow for each phase of the regeneration cycle.

What are the benefits of water treated with a water softener brine tank?


A water softener has dealt with the hard stuff in the water (after calcium and magnesium minerals), and the benefits of soft water compared to tap water are quite extensive.
