Understanding the Brine Draw Cycle in Water Softener
This cycle is the rejuvenating or recharging cycle. Brine is drawn out of the salt tank and passes through the patented chlorine generator on its way to the system’s media. While passing through the generator, it comes in contact with a small amount of electrical current which in turn creates free chlorine from the chlorides in the brine. As the purified brine solution flows through the media, it cleans the tank and recharges the material. Most of the chlorine is consumed in the disinfection process. Any left over chlorine and brine solution is removed during the system’s rinse cycle.
