Water Softener Maintenance
Not So Hard
How to do it
Water Conditioner Care and Usage
Soft water has a unique feel to it. Your glassware has less scale on it and detergents lather and rinse differently than they did before your system. This is all due to the change in water chemistry from your water softener’s ability to remove minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
Simple maintenance will lead to long, trouble-free usage of your equipment.
- The salt brine tank should remain full of salt – 1 bag every 4 to 6 weeks is sufficient for the normal household
- The conditioner is set to self-clean every night. If there is a power outage, the clock will need to be reset but the clean schedule should remain the same.
- The unit should be serviced annually by one of our technicians to ensure internal components are clean and trouble free.
- The resin inside your softener begins to deteriorate after 5 years. You may notice some hardness or staining of your fixtures. That is an indicator to calls us to re-bed the softener. You will then have system like the day it was installed.
Enjoy your water.
