The reason this buildup occurs is that standard salt, rust remover salt, and retail iron treatments are simply not strong enough to break the iron-oxygen bond inside the softener’s resin that is keeping it trapped.
The Crystal Clean treatment’s very high molecular bonding strength gives it the power to break the iron/oxygen bond, easily cleaning out years worth of trapped iron buildup in just a matter of weeks. No other iron treatment can even come close to the results that Crystal Clean achieves.
This treatment allows you to restore a failing water softener that would normally need to be replaced back to almost brand-new working order. Don’t replace your resin, clean it with Crystal Clean.
