Water softener science.
I'm in the "thinking about getting one" process of getting a water softener. I've read through about the last 30 pages of topics concerning water softeners trying to learn.
I'm starting to see that most of the topics are "what size do I need" and "how to set it up" with a few posters seeming to have most of the answers to the questions.
....Anyways, rather than just pop in here with the results of a water test and get help I'd like to know of any resources that could explain the "why" and the "how" behind the answers.
"How and why does magnese or iron affect operation".
"How do you know whats optimal for the best effeciency".
Just looking for links to sites or info thats a little bit more technical.
It would probably be over my head and I'd have to ask the same questions that have been asked 100's of times already, but at least I would have tried.
BTW, so far I've found a place to test my water. Hoping to drop a sample off this weekend.
