How Do Water Softeners Work?

Here’s a step-by-step of how water softeners work:

  1. Hard water (water containing calcium and magnesium molecules) enters the water softener.
  2. The resin beads within the softener are positively charged with sodium molecules clinging onto the resin beads.
  3. When the calcium and magnesium molecules pass through the resin beads, the calcium and magnesium take the place of the sodium.
  4. This causes the calcium and magnesium molecules to cling to the beads and the product water includes amounts of sodium instead.
  5. After an adequate amount of water has gone through the system, a backwashing cycle takes place.
  6. This is where the myth that salt is in soft water comes into play. During the backwash cycle, sodium chloride (table salt) passes through the resin beads. It is used to wash away the calcium, magnesium and here is where it splits. The chloride gets washed away with the calcium and the magnesium and only sodium is left.
  7. The sodium only is left on the resin beads and the process starts all over again.

The rich text element

allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
