Used to reduce the amount of minerals and scale that are present in household water, water softeners are helpful in extending the life of pipes, appliances and clothing. Resin is an important part of any water softener tank. Most resins do not need to be replaced frequently, but the frequency of the softener's regeneration cycle affects the life of it.
Perform the water hardness test if your family begins to notice that soaps are not lathering effectively, or if hard water buildup becomes apparent on faucets and in the shower. Resin typically last 20 to 25 years, but mechanical failure or excessive mineral buildup in the water supply can shorten the lifespan of the it considerably.
The majority of home water softeners use hi-cap (high capacity) resin. Some units, particularly those in use with well water, use fine-mesh resin for trapping groundwater metals. Replacement of fine-mesh resin is necessary more frequently, as iron often gets trapped within the resin and depletes its ability to soften water.
We offer various types of ion exchange water softener resin beads so you can effectively achieve your water softening needs.

When should you replace your resins?
1. The number one reason to replace your resins is because they have been damaged by years of exposure to chlorinated "city" water. After about 10 years ( can be much sooner, or a bit later ) the resins "swell" and then they break down. They become so fragmented the "fines" collecting at the bottom distributor start to restrict the water pressure through the resin tank. This is generally how you "know" you need new resins. On some systems the fragments ( "Fines" ) will start coming into the house and clogging faucet screens.
If resin fragments have been getting into your house, then you will also need to replace the Bottom Distributor
2. When the resin bed has become contaminated by a noticeable and usually visible amount of algae growth ( This problem is common in tanks installed outside ).
3. When the resin tank has a large amount of fine sand in it. This sometimes happens on well water. It is always recommended to have a sediment prefilter installed in the water line before your water softener. This fine sand in the resin bed will cause you to have very poor water pressure. The only way to solve the problem is to dump ( or suck ) out all the resins and sand. Replacing with new resins is a whole lot easier than trying to sift the sand out of your old resin.
4. When a resin tank has been sitting unused for months or years, and a strong odor is detected from the resins. You can try cleaning with a weak chlorine solution, but odds are you will need to dump the resins, bleach out the tank ( with a strong chlorine solution ) and start with fresh new resins.
5. Resins "fouled" by Iron and Organics can usually be cleaned by adding a heavy dose of resin cleaner ( such as ResUp, Iron Out, Citric Acid, or Bleach ). Of course replacing with new works every time.
