What does a water softener do?

1 user answered

A water softener is an ion exchanger which has been designed to remove the ions which are positively charged like calcium or magnesium which are also responsible for the hardness of water. The water softener would collect the hardness minerals in the conditioning tank and would flush the away to the drain. Ion exchangers are used for water softening. They work by replacing calcium and magnesium ions with other ions like sodium or potassium. The ions are initially added to the ion exchanger as sodium or potassium salts.

Is softened water safe enough to drink?

Softened water would still have all the requisite natural minerals that are needed. The only minerals that getremoved are the calcium and magnesium contents. Also, some sodium is added during the softening process. So in most cases, the softened water is suitable for drinking purposes provided the water contains only up to 300mg/L of sodium.

What is the need for water softening?

Water softeners help to remove the hardness of water used for household as well as industrial use. The hardness of water can cause clogging of pipes. It can also prevent soaps from easily getting dissolved. Hard water increases the risk of lime scale deposits in household water systems. So because of this, pipes can get blocked and the efficiency of hot boilers and tanks are also reduced increasing the cost of water heating in homes.

In case you use this hard water for washing machines, then the hard water could damage and shorten the life cycle of the household appliances like washing machines. Water softeners can meanwhile increase the lifespan of the pipelines.

A water softener is a unit which is used to soften water helping to remove minerals which cause the water to get hard. Hard water is water that contains significant amounts of calcium and magnesium. Hard water can cause clogging of pipes and if used for washing clothes, it also prevents soaps and detergents from dissolving in water. So water softening helps to remove ions which cause the water to be hard like calcium and magnesium. Sometimes iron ions are also removed as part of the water softening process.

How do you make balloons float in the air?

You need to use hydrogen or helium instead of air when inflating the balloons. helium is safe to use for inflating balloons, but since it is rare it is more expensive. In comparison hydrogen, while being the lightest of all elements also make floating in the air possible for the balloons, but hydrogen is an extremely combustible material which can explode when coming in contact with fire while helium is inert.

What is a helium quality balloon?

1 user answered

Namita Prasad

Helium quality balloons are balloons that are made from 100% rubber latex. Normally balloons when they are inflated lead to the formation of small pores on the balloon surface from which the air escapes. But balloons that are made from 100% rubber latex cause fewer pores to form on the surface. So the Helium quality balloons can retain air or helium and therefore retain their shape for longer periods of time.

Are latex balloons bio-degradable?

yes. Latex is bio-degradable and would decompose naturally. The decomposition for rubber balloons begins after the balloons are inflated getting exposed to the air as well as exposure to high temperature or sunlight.

Normally balloons are made from natural rubber using the latex or the white sap collected from rubber trees.
