Strong base cation resin in the sodium (Na+) is commonly used for household, commercial and industrial water softening applications. According to the Water Quality Association, the hardness of water supplies in the United States ranges from 1 to 350 grains (gpg) per gallon or 17.1 to 5,985 ppm. However, most waters range between 3 and 50 gpg. USGS Water Quality Information

Softening with cation resin is a simple exchange function. The resin bead is negatively charged and attracts positive ions. When supplied in the sodium form (Na+) the resin will exchange sodium ions for hardness ions – calcium and magnesium. The bead is more strongly attracted to these ions and readily exchanges with the sodium. Once the resin is exhausted it is regenerated with a brine solution (NaCl). The brine overwhelms and releases the calcium and magnesium from the bead. The resin is converted back to the sodium form and ready for re-use.

While systems may vary, a basic illustration of the Water Softening process can be seen in the Demonstration link.

Hard Water can pose a threat to the longevity of your home causing unsightly build-up in fixtures, glassware, appliances and clogging your plumbing over time, making it brittle and reducing the water pressure throughout your home.
