How Do Water Softener Cartridges Work?

Hard water contains calcium, magnesium and other minerals and groundwater acquit these metals by dissolving them from surrounding soil and rocks. By using a water softener, the minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, will be removed otherwise they will cause the water to become hard. Soft water contains little to no calcium or magnesium ions, improving its overall taste and usability in household and restaurant equipment. To treat hard water, there are several different methods commonly used. In each, a water-softening compound, which will typically replace calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions, is used. The supply of sodium ions must be maintained and that is usually by a way of replacing water softener filters on a regular basis.

Depending on your model of water softener, it may require a cartridge or just salts. There are manufacturers that prefer the use of cartridges. For example, Nuvo H2O is a big one. Every water softener and cartridge is different depending on the square footage or the number of bathrooms your home may have. These cartridges will also prevent hard water scaling and staining and it will help prolong the life of your water-softening unit. Also, water softener cartridges only have to be replaced every six months, depending on the manufacturer and model of your existing water softener. This will help save you time and money throughout the water softeners lifespan. The advantages of using a water softener filter over salts are:

  • Higher quality of drinking water
  • Prevents hard water scale
  • Prevents staining on your bathroom and kitchen fixtures as well as dishes, dishwashers, washing machines and clothes
  • Significantly reduces soap and cleaning product consumption
  • Provides excellent grooming and cosmetic benefits
  • Reduces water heating costs
  • Prolongs the life of water heaters, icemakers, dishwashers, and plumbing fixtures
