Water Softener

Water Softener

image of water softener A Water Softener is a special type of water filter that removes calcium and magnesium from hard water being supplied to your home.

A Water Softener operates by using sodium to remove the calcium and magnesium, and is cleaned periodically by a process called 'regeneration.' Water Softeners have three basic components: a mineral tank, a brine tank and a control valve.

If the water filter in your home just removes contaminates from your water supply, then it is a Whole-House Water Filter, and you should instead put a checkmark for this home feature in your Home Wizard app.
