Susan Mullen;
Conventional softeners use a resin bed made up of tiny little beads, to increase the surface collection area, in order to attract the hardness particles to stick to them. Depending on the hardness of the water, this resin bed eventually gets clogged up with calcium and lime deposits, and is rejuvenated to like new condition with a backwash of brine and a rinse of clear water. It will remove 99% of the actual water hardening particles from your water. The new magnetic "softeners" simply give you an impression of soft water. The hardness is still there. As long as your water doesn't sit longer than 24 hours it will remain in this state. So I am thinking the proper way to use this new technology is to have one on the main water coming in and one on the outlet of the water heater. This would give you the same effect as a traditional water softener under all conditions.....Lou
