Hardness in water does not allow soaps to work to their full capacity. Hardness makes it difficult for clothes to be cleaned and leaves skin with a "slippery" feeling. The way the twin alternating softener unit works is by having one tank remove hardness while the other is regenerating. The first tank is full of resin that is saturated in sodium ions. As water is going through the cycle, the resin attracts the calcium and magnesium ions that make the water hard. This then leaves the water with only sodium ions which do not have the same effect on soaps and detergents as calcium and magnesium ions have which leaves the water "soft". Once the first tank is full to capacity of taking calcium and magnesium ions, the tanks switch roles. Now the second tank will accept the role of removing hardness from water. The regeneration part of the process flushes a solution full of sodium ions through the tank, the resin now releases the calcium and magnesium ions and absorbs the sodium ions. This leaves the tank and resin in its original state again in order to repeat the process. The calcium and magnesium ions are discarded leaving the water soft and ideal for usage in hotels, schools, or restaurants.


Water Challenges: While hard water in itself is not considered a health hazard, it can be extremely detrimental for the equipment and appliances used in schools and other commercial buildings. Due to the high concentration of hard minerals such as calcium and magnesium, hard water has a tendency to scale on equipment by leaving large deposits on the surfaces. This leads to an unpleasant buildup of substances on the equipment and more importantly reduces performance productivity as the scaling worsens. Consequently, this leads to an increase in costs for the schools since these equipment need more maintenance and eventually replacement as they become more inefficient. To combat this issue, schools are utilizing treatment solutions such as water softeners that work to eliminating water hardness through the removal of the minerals within water which create it in the first place.



Applied Solution: Pure Aqua designed and manufactured a twin alternating water softener unit with 24" FRP tanks, 24" and 50" brine tank and Fleck top mounted valve for a major company in Costa Rica. Feed water to the softener was city water. Its purpose was to lower the hardness in the water to drinking standards. Each softener produced 56,000 GPD. A twin alternating water softener unit was created and executed in order to remove hardness from water.
