How a Genus Water Softener Works

A water softener works by forcing hard water into a tank of millions of tiny beads of special resin.

As the hard water passes over the beads a process known as ion exchange occurs and this causes the water to become soft. After a while (how long depends on the hardness of your water and the number of people in the house) the resin becomes exhausted and has to be regenerated.
This is achieved by flushing the resin with salt water, a process known as regeneration. The salt water solution is washed away to drain and does not enter the household water supply.
This approach is common to all water softeners but it’s how each manufacturer goes about it that separates the best from merely average.
