The water is softened by passing the water through the high quality exchange resin material. This resin material removes the magnesium ions and calcium ions which causes your water to be hard.

The salt brine tank is a separate container and it is square in shape (15″D x17W”x33″H) and it can hold up to 250 pounds of salt pellets. To help you avoid overflow conditions it comes with a safety float and overflow drain.
