Salt blocks for water softeners
These high purity bricks of salt are intended for use in block salt water softeners.
Each block is individually manufactured by filling a mould with undoped fine salt (table salt) and applying very high pressure. Consistency of compression is essential to achieving a block that does not crumble in the pack or fall apart in water. PDV (vacuum salt) is the best feed salt for this purpose, because of its consistent particle size distribution. With the added benefit that it is very pure, with low level of insolubles.
Normally block salt is sold in 8 kg packs, with two 4 kg blocks in each pack. And a handle for easy carrying. The leading brands also include small ‘grip’ indents in the sides of the blocks, to make them easier to hold when lowering into the salt cabinet of the water softener.
The brands that have established a reputation in the UK for reliable quality are Kinetico block salt, Aquasol, Harvey and TwinTec. There have been several attempts to import other brands from new producers, but none of these have established a reputation for reliable quality
