•TSF Salt tablets guarantee flawless operation of your ion exchanger system, thanks to their perfect characteristics.
•TSF Salt tablets exceed the requirements set for regeneration salts in EN 14805 Type1 and EN 973 Type A:
•Purity – for high-capacity regeneration and long softener life TSF Salt tablets consist of ultrapure vacuum salt with sodium chloride content of at least 99.5 percent.
•Solubility – no residue in the salt-dissolving container TSF Salt tablets’ great purity and solubility eliminate ion exchange resin malfunctions and blocked valves, and they ensure the resin’s ion exchange capacity. •Insoluble elements content: less than 0.01% guaranteed! No Iodine unlike locally available food grade salts which affect the resin •Shape – no salt clumping in the dissolving container TSF Salt tablets’ specific shape and surface guarantee fast formation of a saturated brine and the right circulation of solution. The defined shape allows optimal solubility. •Stability – no salt mass forms at the bottom of the salt container TSF Salt tablets are produced with uniform pressure, which ensures controlled solubility.
To maximize the service life of your water softening system be sure to have it serviced by a technician at least once a year.
Tip #1: Regularly Check Your System’s Salt Levels With most water softeners, your salt can be found in the brine tank, which is used to produce the sodium ions that will “swap” with magnesium and calcium ions in a process called ion exchange.
If your salt level is too low, your softener won’t have what it needs to perform this process. The result is hard water that leaves chalky white residue on fixtures and leaves skin and hair feeling sticky and dry. Tip #2: Clean Your Brine Tank Regularly Most water softener experts recommend cleaning your brine tank once per year. Otherwise, salt can form clumps or sludge and reduce the effectiveness of your softener’s regeneration process. If your water has high levels of iron or sediment, you may need to clean your brine tank more often. Tip #3: Look For and Eliminate Salt Bridges A salt bridge is a crusty buildup of salt residue that collects in the tank of your water softener. When a salt bridge forms, the salt will not dissolve in the water to form brine. Without the brine, resin does not regenerate properly, so the water does not get softened. A salt bridge forms in high humidity or from using low-quality salt. Tip #4: Replace Your Water Softener Resin: Resin is a crucial element of your water softener’s operation since it allows ion exchange to take place. Though resin is usually designed to last the duration of a water softener’s lifetime (around 3 to 5 years) high levels of iron and chlorine can sometimes break down resin faster than usual. Tip #5: Use the Right Type of Salt: Only use high quality salt designed for use in water softeners. Other types of salt will have a high level of insoluble impurities that could build up and clog your system. High-purity salt costs more than other types of salt, but the investment is worth it to protect the longevity of your water softener. Tip #6: Add a Prefilter: If your water has sediment, iron, sand, clay or other substances — commonly found in well water or tap water in certain areas throughout the country — your water softener could become clogged or damaged. A Prefilter removes these contaminants from your water supply before it reaches your water softener and remains effective for six to nine months before needing a replacement.
