Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention generally relates to the removal of certain salts, such as those of calcium or magnesium, from water. More particularly, the present invention is directed to a method for efficiently softening water containing certain ions in a manner which limits the volume amount of undesirable waste that is sent to municipality waste treatment systems. Additionally, the present invention includes a water softening apparatus (100) and system (200) useable in small domestic water softeners and existing water and drainage lines.
