    FS- Cation Exchange resin

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    In order to replace the resin in my commercial water-softening unit, 2 months ago I purchased a large bag of it from a water filter/treatment company.

    My unit holds 5 litres of the resin, so I have some that is "superfluous to my needs".

    I have put the remainder of the resin into 5 litre supermarket water containers. The lids have been sealed around the sides with silicone and the containers have been covered with masking tape to exclude the light. They are in a dark, cool cupboard.

    I did quite a bit of research before purchasing the resin and found out that whilst cation exchange resin can be regenerated with salt many, many times....it does not do its job indefinitely.

    The cost is $40 plus post for a 5 litre container.

    Cheers,
    Paolo.

    This is a ridiculously good bargain. Probably works out cheaper than using a kilo of salt and litres of water each time one needs to refresh the resin.
