Quick Tip: Water softeners can accelerate corrosion of water heater anode rods and shorten the life span of a water heater tank. You can help protect your water heater tank from premature failure by replacing your worn out anode rod with a new anode rod.

Directions for Sanitizing:
Step 1: Backwash the softener and add one 0.5 ounce packet per 4 gallons of water to the brine tank. Usually 4 to 8 gallons of brine water is needed to backwash the average water softener.
Step 2: Proceed with a normal regeneration cycle. Or, interrupt the the cycle after the brining cycle and let the softener soak for a full 2 minutes, before continuing and completing the cycle.
Step 3: Backwash the softener with potable water to make sure all the sanitizing solution is thoroughly rinsed from the softener system before retuning the unit to normal service (conditioned water position)

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "How does a water softener work?"
A. During normal conditioning, hard water enters the system through an inlet at the top of the resin tank. As the water comes in contact with the the resin, the hardness and/or scale molecules attach to and stay on the resin molecule while releasing the sodium molecule if sodium chloride (NaCl) is being used as the regenerate material. This is why it is called an ion exchange. The result is the quality and convenience of conditioned water. During the regeneration cycle, the system automatically washes the ion exchange resin with sodium chloride forcibly removing the hardness and scale molecules off of the resin and replacing them again with the sodium chloride molecules. Please note that only the sodium is released into the conditioned water. The chloride portion of the molecule stays attached to the resin and any excess is pushed out the drain along with the hardness and scale molecules during the regeneration cycle.

Q. "During the regeneration process of a water softener is it ok to turn on the faucets, take a shower, etc? Will it mess up the regeneration process?"
A. Running water while the softener is regenerating will not mess up the regeneration process, but any water used during the regeneration cycle will not be softened. If water is used while the water softener regenerates, water that would normally go through the softener now automatically bypasses the softener and runs straight to the fixture being used and to the water heater if any hot water is being used.
