Frequently Asked Water Softener Installation & Repair Questions
Do I need a professional to install a water softener?
A professional installation is suggested even if it is possible to install a water softener yourself. A professional can handle any required plumbing adjustments as well as make sure the water softener is fitted and sized correctly.
What are some common problems with water softeners?
Common problems with water softeners include resin bead fouling, salt bridging, and control valve malfunctions. Resin bead fouling occurs when the resin beads become coated with organic material or iron, reducing their ability to soften water. Salt bridging occurs when salt forms a hard layer in the brine tank, preventing water from dissolving the salt and regenerating the resin beads. Control valve malfunctions can cause issues with the water softener’s regeneration cycle, leading to hard water and other problems.
How often should I perform maintenance on my water softener?
At least once a year. This includes cleaning the resin tank, inspecting the control valve and brine tank, and replacing any damaged or worn parts.
How often do I need to replace the resin beads in my water softener?
The frequency of resin bead replacement depends on the hardness of your water and the size of your water softener. On average, resin beads need to be replaced every 10 to 15 years.
