Where To Buy Water Softener Resin

The calcium and magnesium ions in hard water are also positively charged by nature. When supply water flows through the water softener tank and resin bed, the hardness ions knock the sodium ions off the resin beads and attach to the resin in their place. The sodium ions are then released into the water.

where to buy water softener resin


Once all of the resin beads are completely covered with hardness ions, the water softener needs to have a way to get rid of the calcium and magnesium it captured, in order to continue collecting more. That is when regeneration occurs.

During regeneration, the water softener flushes out the hardness mineral ions using a brine solution that is created when salt, or sodium chloride, is added to the water softener. The positive charge of the resin is strong enough to break apart the sodium chloride compound as the salt water passes by, replenishing the sodium layer back onto the resin bead so they are ready to begin the ion exchange process again.

WaterBoss uses a unique vacuum packing process, which gives it the greatest capacity for hard water treatment in the smallest amount of space possible. Since sodium ions attach to the surface of the resin, the more resin bead surface area that comes into contact with the water, the more effective the cycle will be.

Conventional water softener design is prone to a problem called channeling or tunneling within the resin. This occurs when the hard water creates a path or channel through the resin, which becomes oversaturated with mineral ions. The unique design of the WaterBoss assures that the water is distributed more evenly throughout all of the resin bed, thereby maximizing the use of the resin.

Resin is the heart and soul of every properly functioning water softener. Softener resin works hard to remove harsh minerals from your water such as calcium, magnesium and iron. Water softener resin should be replaced when any of the following occur:

Two versions of cation softener resin are sold on this page: standard and fine mesh. Unless you know that your softener was originally set up for fine mesh resin, buy standard (Hi Cap). Standard Hi Cap is the preferred resin for regular hardness removal.

Fine mesh resin also removes hardness but is preferred for removal of iron from well water. (Standard Hi Cap also removes iron, but fine mesh does it better.) The disadvantage of fine mesh resin is that it reduces service flow. You cannot simply put fine mesh resin into a standard unit. You'll need to change to a more restrictive riser basket to avoid loss of resin.

First let me say that is has been my experience that the resins in your water softener will usually out last the control valve. Examination of resin tanks over 20 years old found the resins to still be capable of the ion exchange ( which is the process by which your water is softened ). Some depletion of the amount of resin occurred in some of the systems over 20 years old. And modern day resin has improved slightly, but replacement is not needed as often as some would lead you to believe.

1. The number one reason to replace your resins is because they have been damaged by years of exposure to chlorinated "city" water. After about 10 years ( can be much sooner, or a bit later ) the resins "swell" and then they break down. They become so fragmented the "fines" collecting at the bottom distributor start to restrict the water pressure through the resin tank. This is generally how you "know" you need new resins. On some systems the fragments ( "Fines" ) will start coming into the house and clogging faucet screens. If resin fragments have been getting into your house, then you will also need to replace the Bottom Distributor ( use our PN MD1236 listed below ).

3. When the resin tank has a large amount of fine sand in it. This sometimes happens on well water. It is always recommended to have a sediment prefilter installed in the water line before your water softener. This fine sand in the resin bed will cause you to have very poor water pressure. The only way to solve the problem is to dump ( or suck ) out all the resins and sand. Replacing with new resins is a whole lot easier than trying to sift the sand out of your old resin.

Most cation exchange is 8% cross linked. 10% cross linked resin simply has a longer life and is more chemical and chlorine resistant. General Technologies C110DQ cation resin provides a high purity, premium cation resin designed for the treatment of foods, beverages, potable waters, and water used in the processing of food. C110DQ resin is a high grade resin which complies with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (USFDA) CFR 21, Title 173.25 for use in the treatment of foods for human consumption. NSF/ANSI Standard 44 & 61 Certified.

Let us do the work for you! If you own an EcoPure water filtration system or softener, sign up to receive regularly scheduled reminders every time you need to replace a filter or add water softening cleanser.

Just as the water softener resin bead size is generally given as a size range by the manufacturer; you can actually see from our lab photos shown on this page that the actual resin bead sizes vary within the manufacturer's specified range - they are not identical in diameter.

The greater total resin bead surface area provided by fine-mesh water softener resin beads increases the softening capacity of a water softener by about 10 percent over regular mesh resins but the softener's filter that keeps the resin beads from leaving the softener must be sized appropriately as well.

Typical water softener resin is sold in bead-form, as a conventional gel polystyrene sulfonate cation exchange resin that is ready for use in household or industrial water conditioning equipment such as a water softener or water conditioner.

Diagnose & Fix Water Softener Problems: this article series describes procedures for diagnosing and repairing water softener or water conditioner problems including water conditioner control settings and adjustment or repair, brine tank and brine tank float cleaning and repair, and the proper amount of water softening or conditioning that is needed.

Aquatrol CAT110E Premium Grade cation resin provides a high purity, premium cation resin designed for the treatment of foods, beverages, potable waters, and water used in the processing of food. Aquatrol CAT110E resin is a high grade resin which complies with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (USFDA) CFR 21, Title 173.25 for use in the treatment of foods for human consumption. Aquatrol CAT110E cation resin has excellent hydraulic characteristics for optimal flow rate and backwash flow rates.

Resin cleaning products are used to keep the engine of the softener - the resin - in top working condition. Iron, manganese, and other foulants in the water, will slowly but surely render softening resin useless - or at least much less efficient. Resin cleaning products are used to periodically strip all foulants from the resin bringing it back to its original state and efficiency.

Water softener resin cleaners come in a variety of forms such as liquid and powder. Each formulation is designed for removing a different combination of foulants. Select a resin cleaner that most closely matches the issues present in your water.

Pour 16 oz of ReSTore per cubic foot of resin into the brine well. If the softener does not have a brine well, pour ReSTore directly to the salt tank when the salt is low. It will regenerate the softener manually. If taste, odor, or discoloration is detected in the discharge, repeat the regeneration. When complete, run cold, soft water from the tap nearest the softener until taste, odor and color are absent.

We are offering you this product to remove hardness from the water. Water softening is a method in which water runs through a bed of resin to change the hardness ions, calcium, and magnesium, for sodium ions. While the resin has reached its capacity for keeping hardness ions, the water softener begins a regeneration cycle.

Softening by ion exchange resin is also identified as Base Exchange softening. Hard, raw water is passed over a bed of cation resin in sodium form. Ca and Mg ions, which create hardness, are exercised up by resin and in replacing sodium ions are surrendered from the resin. Raw water resumes getting softened till the resin gets drained.

Ans. The usual pretreatment and maintenance, the ordinary water softener will not require its resins substituted in its lifetime (20 + years). Note: Fit pretreatment can be as easy as a sediment filter or as complex as a chemical needle system connected with a multimedia bed, this is arranged by having your water tested.

The next most important thing to do is to use a resin cleaning agent, like ResKleen. This is a specially formulated water softener cleaner that is NSF Certified as safe but protects your investment and helps your water softener to operate more efficiently and longer.

Indion 222 Na is a strong acidic cation resin used in sodium form to exchange scale-forming ions like Calcium and Magnesium with Sodium. Specifically designed to meet the requirements for food, beverage and drinking water applications. The resin is packed in tear proof, air tight bags for safe transportation and to ensure a long shelf-life. Suitable for both water softeners and as the cation exchanger in two-stage de-ionisation.

A water softener works by exchanging sodium ions with calcium and magnesium ions, the minerals primarily responsible for hard water. What makes the water softener cartridge work is the sand-like resin found inside the cartridge. A money-saving option is to replace the resin rather than replacing the cartridge.

This Water Softener Resin Refill is 1.25 lb. of resin to replace the used resin inside the cartridge. Though the water softener cartridge can be recharged several times, it can eventually become too laden with sodium to be completely recharged. When your water begins to feel less "soft" it is time to change the resin. 041b061a72
