The salt tank's main purpose in your water treatment system is to utilize the salt brine to rinse the resin in your water softener. The salt tank is directly connected to your water softener via a small brine tube. This works by sending salt water brine into your softener to rinse and release the iron particles that have attached to the resin beads. It is important to always make sure your salt tank is full so that it can work to its utmost potential. Salt tanks are vital to your water softener's backwash process. Routine maintenance is an important part of keeping up with your water treatment.
