It does not harm the reputation of the model that it saves a considerable amount of water and salts. Calcium and Magnesium which are the prime culprits for the hardness of water are dealt with by the resin used in the product.

Upon reaching saturation, the resin beads are treated with brine washes. The magnesium and calcium particles so washed can then be drained out.
