Softener Replacement Resin 1/2 cubic foot
Softening Resin 0.5 Cubic Foot 27 lbs. CWS brand WQA Certified Gold Seal CATION Standard resin is a high quality, 8% cross-linked, high capacity, conventional gel polystyrene strong acid cation exchange resin designed for use in residential or industrial water softening equipment. Cation resin in sodium form removes hardness ions such as calcium and magnesium by replacing them with sodium.
When the resin bed is exhausted the hardness ions begin to pass through the bed. Functionality is returned by regeneration with concentrated sodium or potassium chloride solution. The capacity obtained depends largely on the amount of salt used in the regeneration. Typically 15 lbs of chemical per cubic foot is used to obtain maximum capacity ofup to 33,000 grains per cubic foot, or more commonly 9 lbs of salt is used per cubic foot to achieve 22,000 grains per cubic foot.
