What Are Salt-Based Water Softeners
The “salt” or “no salt” water treatment debate refers to the water softener aspect of your water treatment system. Traditional water softeners use resin beads with charged ions to chemically trap and remove calcium and magnesium. (The negative charge of special resin beads draws the positive charge of those hardness minerals.) Calcium and magnesium are the minerals primarily responsible for “hard water,” including the scale buildup and other hard water problems.
Eventually the resin beads wear out. They attract so many calcium and magnesium molecules that they can’t attract any more and have to go through “regeneration” or “recharging” in order to work effectively again.
The water softener regeneration process is where the salt comes in. A special tank containing salt fills with water to create a brine. The brine rinses and recharges the resin beads. Then the brine—and all those minerals—gets flushed down the drain.
The Problem with Salt in Your Water Softener
The problem with these traditional salt- or brine-based water softeners is that they use a lot of resources, and they also produce byproducts.
Salt. The salt in traditional water softeners has to be replaced. That means you’re buying additional salt for your water softener on a regular basis.
Water. While the salt in these water softeners does not ever enter into your home or drinking water, these systems do use a lot of water during the rinsing/recharging/regeneration process.
Electricity. While not all salt-based water softeners require electricity, many do need a power source to power their automatic cleaning cycles.
Byproducts. Rinsing, recharging/regenerating ionized water softener beads ultimately flushes gallons of brine and minerals down the drain. This wastewater can be so problematic to the environment that some communities ban these systems altogether.
