Summary:
"Sodium chloride (NaCl) is typically used to soften water, yet the resulting sodium-rich runoff has no benefits and poses human health and environmental problems. Water Softening with Potassium Chloride lays out an alternative approach that offers a "win-win" for both the environment and softening performance. Written by the pioneer of the process, this unique resource presents the background, research data and  Read more...
