How zeolites fix hard water

Two solutions are prepared where a few drops of 0.2 M calcium nitrate is added to distilled water. In the second solution, a zeolite is added that will exchange Na+ ions for Ca2+ ions reducing the water hardness. Upon addition of carbonate ions, the precipitate formed in the solution with zeolites is noticeably less and eventually clears up completely.
Hard water occurs when magnesium or calcium is dissolved in water and can form deposits with carbonate or with soap. Reducing the amount of calcium or magnesium ions is the goal for water softening.

Zeolite is an amazing natural mineral that can soften water, and remove odors better than almost anything. It can also detox & remove toxic heavy metals & radioactive isotopes from the body is with the natural mineral called Zeolite Pure in micronized powdered form. For more info on this safe & proven oral chelation better than IV chelation, liquid zeolite and all other zeolite products see:
