Salt Tanks

What a Salt Tank Does for Your System

The salt tank's main purpose in your water treatment system is to clean your water softener to allow it to clean your water more efficiently. The salt tank is directly connected to your Water softener via a small brine tube.  This works by sending salt water through your softener to oxidize 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 works to its utmost potential. Salt tanks are vital to your water softener's backwash process. Maintenance is an important part of your water treatment. If neglected, there could be a number of issues that occur.
