I am getting hard water what should I do?

If after installing your water softener you still get hard water then try the following …..

 

POWER SUPPLY

Check your power supply cable. Check that is plugged fully into the electric outlet. Be sure that the power outlet is switched on. Reset softener to proper time of day and then plug in.

 

BLOWN FUSE

Check the house fuse or circuit breaker panel. Replace a blown-out fuse or reset an open circuit breaker.

 

POWER FAILURE

Any interruption in your power supply, or time changes, such as daylight savings, will disrupt your softener’s recharge schedule by causing the timer to run off schedule. Reset timer to correct time of day.

 

SALT SUPPLY

Check it. Refill if necessary and wait approximately four hours for the salt to dissolve before initiating a recharge cycle.

 

INCREASED USAGE

Guests, family additions, new water-using appliances, etc. all will result in more water usage and will require more capacity from your softener. You can reprogram your recharging schedule by following the directions on adjustments for your softener in this manual.

 

NO WATER

If you aren’t getting any water flow at all, make sure your water supply is working. Open a tap ahead of the softener (outside tap) to see if you have any water pressure.

 

CONTINUOUS FLOW TO DRAIN

If water runs to drain continuously. Check to make sure unit is not in recharge. If it is recharging, allow unit to finish cycle, and then reset time of day if necessary. If the unit is not in recharge, contact Water2buy.

SALT BRIDGING

Salt “bridging” occurs when a gap has formed between the salt and the water preventing the salt from dissolving in the water to make brine. No brine = no soft water. High humidity and/or use of some brands of purified salt products may cause a salt bridge to form.

The best way to check and eliminate a salt bridging problem is to take a brush handle then carefully begin to probe down through the salt with the handle. Continue to probe and break up the bridge.
