BRINE TANK SALT
A salt brine tank is a container used to hold a solution of water and salt, typically sodium chloride, which is used for water softening. The tank is typically made of plastic or fiberglass and is filled with a specific amount of salt and water. Water softeners work by exchanging the hardness minerals (usually calcium and magnesium) in the water with sodium ions from the salt. It is an essential component of a water softener system because it stores the salt solution and initiates the regeneration process to replace the sodium ions on the resin beads in the softener. The brine solution is circulated through the resin tank, exchanging the sodium ions with the hardness minerals, which are then flushed out of the system. The regenerated resin beads are then ready to remove hardness from the water again.
