A water softener that uses cationic resin has some specific benefits some of which include:
- Removal of Calcium and Magnesium: The cationic resin is able to exchange the calcium and magnesium ions present in the water for sodium ions, which results in softer water that is less prone to the formation of limescale deposits.
- Equipment protection: Hard water can damage heating equipment such as boilers and heat exchangers, as well as pipes and faucets. The use of cationic resin can help extend the life of these equipment.
- Improved Treatment Efficiency: Removal of calcium and magnesium can improve the efficiency of subsequent treatment steps.
- Does not affect the taste and odor of water: The cationic resin does not affect the taste and odor of water, and it can improve the quality of water for human consumption.
