- Reduces hardness minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, from all incoming water in the ion exchange process
- Cuts scale build-up in piping and plumbing fixtures with ion exchange
- Helps provide softer clothes and towels, skin and hair, spot-free dishes, glasses and flatware
- Reduces the frequency of regeneration or re-charge cycles required over the life of the resin
The 3M™ Whole House Water Treatment Media H-050P is a high capacity water softener resin media used in Residential and Commercial applications to reduce hardness minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, from all incoming water. This filtration system also reduces scale build-up in piping and plumbing fixtures.
An Ion Exchange
The 3M™ H-050P Whole House Water Treatment Media, Model H-050P reduces the frequency of regeneration or re-charge cycles required over the life of the resin, typically 10-15 years, helping save water used during the regeneration process.
The most common process of water softening is called ion exchange. This is a process where calcium and magnesium ions — the cause of hard water and scale build-up in pipes and plumbing fixtures — are exchanged with sodium or potassium chloride ions found in water softener salts. The high capacity water treatment media, such as H-050P, allows for that ion exchange process to take place. When all the available sodium ions have been replaced with calcium or magnesium ions, the resin must be "re-charged" using a solution of sodium or potassium chloride. The waste water from the ion exchange process, which contains the undesired hardness causing calcium and magnesium ions, is discharged to drain.
