CAN A COMBINATION OF SODIUM CHLORIDE AND POTASSIUM CHLORIDE BE USED?

Answers

I'm not sure but I don't see why you couldn't. I believe you are asking due to change over? And not wanting to continuously mix the 2?

Most likely, it comes from mines in Canada as that country supples over 40 percent of Potassium Chloride worldwide; next is Russia then Belarus. China is not a supplier.

According to Home Depot own website. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Diamond-Crystal-40-lb-Potassium-Chloride-Water-Softening-Pellets-100012447/100614656 If you pick "Scheduled Delivery", the third option. You need a minimum of $45.00 to make a delivery and the charge is $8.99, effectively $54.00 or more depending on your sales tax. Basically, two bags bring your around $60 without the scheduled delivery. I hope this helps!

It's just water, any salt or potassium content would be very minimal, and both are a naturally occurring product anyway.

This product says sodium shield.Does that mean it has salt

Asked by Irish January 27, 2018
9
Answers

Irish, "sodium shield" is imho an uninformative rather "stupid" marketing term that confuses rather than clarifies. Look for POTASSIUM CHLORIDE if you want a "salt" free alternative. People on reduced sodium diets, and are on diuretics could benefit from using potassium chloride to regenerate their resin beds. However, the benefit is quite small, and the expense over regular sodium chloride is substantial. Remember, most of ones water use is not consumed, it's used for washing, bathing, etc. A little chemistry: both sodium chloride and potassium chloride are salts. But if you are on a "salt restricted diet" and encouraged to eat potassium rich foods (e.g. bananas, sweet potato, acorn squash), your physician may also ask you to watch your fluid intake...... If you have kidney disease, then talk with your physician - potassium intake is an important component in managing your kidney disease.

Will this product have an affect on low PH (acidity)?

Asked by Waycos October 30, 2017

Answers

Chloride is acidic by nature. Softening salt is used to bring the percent of Hydrogen down to a more acidic level from basic or higher pH (insoluble mineral water).
