They are correct, but make sure you take a big dump before you flush it down!

Can we drink water after softening with these salt pellets?

Asked by LE January 1, 2019

Answers

The water softener uses a resin bead (small plastic beads) that the house water passes through. The calcium and other hardness components are captured by the resin beads as the water passes over them. The softener salt is used to flush the hardness materials off of these beads. The salt is not added to the house water. The house water is bypassed and the salt solution (or brine) is passed over the beads, releasing the calcium. The beads are then flushed with water to remove the salt. In this process, a small amount of salt may remain on the beads and therefore get mixed with the house water, but if the water softener is working properly, virtually no salt remains. The entire process is called regeneration. I would not worry about the amount of salt in the house water.

can this product be used to melt sidewalk ice?

Using water softener salt in pellet form would be very inefficient for melting ice on a sidewalk. Small particles of granulated salt would work much quicker for sidewalk application. In addition there is a safety concern walking on large pellets

Answers

sodium chloride will kill lawns. not sure about potassium salt. however, hopefully your piping system does not use soft water in any case to water plants and lawns. That would be a big waste of money. correctly piped homes have separate pipes for outdoor spigots with untreated (hard) water. not issue using hard water for watering outside.

This is the product and name I trust for my water softener. This is the one I always buy because I know I can depend on doing what it's supposed to do. My water softener recommends Morton salt only.
