water softener

  • a device which reduces the calcium and magnesium concentration of hard water by passing it through an ion exchange resin
  • A device or substance that softens hard water by removing certain minerals
  • a substance (such as sodium chloride) that lessens the hardness of water by replacing calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions and so gives the water more efficient sudsing power
  • Water softening is the act of reducing the dissolved calcium, magnesium, and to some degree manganese and ferrous iron ion concentration in hard water. A common water softener is sodium carbonate .

hellenbrand water softener


Chanhassen city water is very hard – a softener can handle that. But the water also contains a high level of chlorine, and enough iron to cause stains – these problems require a filter.

The Hellenbrand DMT is a hybrid water system that combines both softening and filtration technologies – a single cure for all 3 problems our client had!

Notice how clean the installation is. Everything is hard plumbed – even the drain!


The system consisted of a 12" air tank, 12" iron filter tank, and a 10" water softener tank.
