The word ‘maintenance’ often makes homeowners cringe. But, it’s a necessary part of owning a home, or just about anything of value, for that matter.
Water softener maintenance is no different. You might see it as a necessary evil, but we see it as a great way to protect your investment!
Let’s take a look at some of the common concerns we hear from customers, and how you can keep your water softener in great condition for years to come.
Is water softener maintenance really necessary?
We hear this question often and the answer is … ABSOLUTELY! Your water softener will only continue to save you money if it’s in proper working order.
Just like any other appliance, a water softener needs to be regularly cleaned and inspected for wear and tear. Failure to do so can actually cost you more money in the long run as neglect can lead to the need for expensive repairs or even replacement.
Would you continue to drive your vehicle for miles on end without ever taking it to a repair shop for maintenance? No! Don’t expect your water softener to last forever without maintenance, either. A little TLC will keep the system running efficiently and soft water running through your home.
What’s included in water softener maintenance?
The exact maintenance tasks required ultimately depend on the type of water softener you have. In general, however, they include things like:
- Water testing to make sure the softener is working properly
- Visual inspection for wear and tear of parts like pistons, screens, seals, etc.
- Replacement of worn out parts as needed
- Cleaning the brine tank
- Changing filters
- Checking water flow rate and regeneration schedule
- Delivering and filling the system with the best water softener salt
