|Potassium is one of the 16 elements necessary for plant growth. It also helps plants resist disease and optimize moisture utilization. Using potassium chloride in your softener will contribute approximately 32 milligrams of potassium per 8 ounces of water for each 10 grains of hardness softened. Hope this answers your question!
