What is Hard Water

Hard water is frequently unsuitable for many industrial and domestic purpose. When water is referred to as ‘Hard’ it simply means, that it contains an excess of calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg) Ions than normal water. Carbonate hardness is known as temporary hardness and non-carbonate hardness is known as permanent hardness.The degree of hardness of the water increases, when more calcium and magnesium ions are dissolves. These ions have their origins in limestone sediments and also from carbon dioxide which is present in all waters exposed to the atmosphere and especially in groundwater.The easiest way to soft the hard water is through Ion exchange process.

Water Softening Process

Softening is the ion exchange process, it is done through the resin, the most common and probably the easiest method of removing hardness (that is calcium and magnesium)from water and suitable for utility purpose. As the name implies ion exchange is a process which undesirable ions are exchanged for more desirable ions. The softening process consists of passing raw water containing hardness through a bed of cation resin in sodium form. The hardness ions Ca & Mg are taken up by resin and in exchange, the sodium ions are relinquished from the resin. This is called the service cycle, where the hard water is being softened.

Effects of Hard Water

  • More Power Consumption
  • Breaking down of equipment
  • Scalling and Algae
  • Clogging and Blocking of supply lines.
  • Reduced water flow
  • Lack of leather when use with Soap
  • Lime Scales in Kattles, floor tiles and water heaters
  • Salinization of Soil surface
  • Low water Infiltration
  • Decreased growth and yield 
  • Uneven Irrigation due to Nozzle Clogging
