Discharge of brine wastes from water softener regeneration to sewers or receiving streams is often undesirable because of possible pollution. Brine reclamation and reuse has been studied for one year at a central regeneration plant for portable ion exchange water softeners. The process is modified lime-soda softening and is operated in daily batches. This process produces a 95% sodium chloride brine, which is perfectly acceptable for reuse as a regenerant brine. The lime-soda softening sludge is the only waste. This process is feasible technically, but is marginal economically. Performance data and cost estimate are included. (Modified author abstract)
