What does backwashing my water softener do?

During a backwash of a water softener system, water runs through a resin tank upward. It does this at a fast speed and flushes iron minerals from the resin bed and out to the drain. You can manually set the water softener to perform an extra backwash and fast-rinse cycle before the normal regeneration.
