We are amongst the most important producers and suppliers of Water Softening Salt Granules. Water Softener Resin can be renewed with either potassium chloride or sodium chloride salt. There is a false impression in the marketplace that few water softeners are purposely engineered in such a way that it can be used with potassium salt to be further eco friendly and more apt. This is a myth or a misleading notion. All Water Softener Resin using a cation exchange resin can utilize either salt. In general it needs about 10% more salt to renew with potassium chloride salt when matched against to sodium chloride salt. The benefit of potassium salt is that it does not add to an elevated sodium diet and the backwash can be set free onto a lawn or backyard.
Sodium chloride salt will destroy plants so it must be set free into a sewer system or drain. USA made resins is prepared with sulfuric acid to sulfonate the resin in opposition to resins which are imported that uses a solvent based process. Both make a good resin but the USA made resin won't have the solvent remainder on start up that will be noticed with the imported resins. New 10% crosslink resins declare to have more resistance to collapse from chlorine. There is some dispute within the industry as to how much additional resin life will be availed through usage of the 10% crosslink water softener resins
