The water softening process is called ion exchange. Essentially, the salt you add to the softener turns resin beads in your tank into sodium ions. If that makes no sense to you, keep reading…because we’re going to try again. Hard water is “hard” because it contains minerals from the ground. Salt (through the work of your softener) breaks those minerals down and removes them from the water. Check out this great article on water softener maintenance so you can ensure your softener is working at peak efficiency.
The simplest way to put it: Hard water refers to water that picks up minerals (mainly calcium and magnesium) while in the ground. Those minerals cause various types of issues in homes and for people, and it’s the most common water issue in the United States. Hard water does not make water undrinkable but it significantly affects its performance. It will mess with your laundry and your appliances. It will make your skin dry and itchy, and it makes soap lose its “soapiness.”
Having gone through the ion-exchange process, soft water has hardness removed from it. This means minerals that cause wear and tear on appliances, laundry, and everyday life (as well as your skin) are no longer present in the water. It makes water easier on your home, your belongings, and your skin. Unlike many water quality issues, soft water is not about removing toxins or chemicals from water. It’s about improving the performance of your water.
Hard water shows itself in different ways around your home. If you are experiencing some of these issues, you should probably consider a water softener. • Dry, Itchy Skin • Spots on Dishes • Water Heater Failure • Mineral Build Up and Soap Scum on Fixtures, Bathtubs, etc. • Soap that won’t froth • Fading clothes • Scratchy clothes
Speedy Salt salt is best…because it’s from Texas. But the actual answer is that the difference between the yellow pellets and blue solar crystals is in their manufacturing. Blue solar crystals are formed by allowing the sun to evaporate salt water, which leaves behind salt crystals and some natural organic debris. Yellow pellets are formed through a process called mechanical vapor recompression evaporation, which produces the cleanest salt available. At the end of the day they are both still salt and can both be used in water softeners. Yellow pellets are generally cleaner because they don’t contain debris naturally left behind from the environment like the blue crystals. Blue solar crystals are notorious for forming into a hard solid mass inside of your salt tank (a process called bridging), which makes maintenance more difficult. At Speedy Salt, we recommend you use yellow pellets. And if you switch from Blue to Yellow, don’t worry about cleaning out the blue. You can mix them.
