Why water softeners needs salt
Once placed in the water softener, the salt slowly dissolves to create a brine solution in the base of the water softener. This brine solution is an important part the water softener’s regeneration or “cleaning” cycle.
When the resin in the water softener’s cylinder has reached its max capacity for capturing hard minerals, the brine solution enters the cylinder to clean the resin and it removes the hardness minerals from the cylinder.
The Minimax M2 works with block salt, a much more convenient form of salt. The individual blocks only weigh 4kg each, compared to the heavy 25kg tablet salt bags, meaning they are easier to load, carry and store.
