An apparatus for use with a water softening system including an outer bucket, an inner container having a first end, and a plug, where the plug is received within the first end of the inner container for supporting the inner container and allowing brine to be retained within the inner container. A plurality of apertures extend around a periphery of the plug for providing access between the inner container and the outer bucket. An agitator is positioned within the plug for agitating water retained within the outer bucket. The agitation of the water in the outer bucket causes the water to flow through the plurality of recesses to contact the brine forming a mixture able to improve the operation of the water softening system.
