When water contains a significant amount of calcium and magnesium, it is called hard water. Hard water is known to clog pipes and to complicate soap and detergent dissolving in water. Water softening is a technique that serves the removal of the ions that cause the water to be hard, in most cases calcium and magnesium ions. The best way to soften water is to use a water softener unit and connect it directly to the water supply. Water softening is an important process within filtration. When water is hard, it can clog pipes and soap will dissolve in it less easily. Water softening can prevent these negative effects. Water softening helps expand the life span of household machines, such as laundry machines, and the lifespan of pipelines. It also contributes to the improved working, and longer lifespan, of solar heating systems, air conditioning units and many other water-based applications.
