What is water softener salt? Typically, water softener salt is made of sodium chloride or potassium chloride. It is used in water softeners to help remove minerals from your water, transforming your hard water to soft water. These hard water minerals are removed when water passes through resin beads in the water softener tank. Salt is used to periodically recharge these resin beads so that they can continue to remove hard water minerals.
Removing these minerals prevents build-up of scale on the inside of pipes, fixtures, and hot water heaters. Water softener salt also helps lengthen the life of some appliances like dishwashers and washing machines. As a result, water softener salt reduces and can prevent mineral spots on your dishes and glassware. The other benefit of water softener salt is that it reduces soap films and buildup in sinks, bathtubs, and washing machines.
