Preventative Maintenance For Your Water Softener

Apr 26, 2021

If you have a water softener, you already know the many benefits of soft water. When your water softener was installed, you immediately would have noticed a difference in your water quality and how it affected your skin, hair, dishes, fixtures, and appliances. Now that you’ve been enjoying soft water, preventative maintenance is needed to ensure that you continue to have GREAT water.

What is water softener preventative maintenance?

Just like with any mechanical equipment (think oil changes and A/C maintenance), regular maintenance is highly beneficial. The cost of preventative maintenance could be significantly less than the cost of repairs or replacement. Water softener preventative maintenance usually includes:

  • Water testing. 
  • Visual inspection for wear and tear on parts.
  • Replacement of parts as needed.
  • Cleaning the equipment.
  • Changing all the filters.
  • Checking water flow rate.
  • Validating the equipment’s regeneration schedule.
  • Making sure all of the meters are working.
  • Delivering and filling the system with the best water softener salt.

These are all common services in preventative maintenance plans. However, our water softener experts can customize the checklist based on the type of water softener you have in your home- regardless of where you purchased it.

Signs of water softener problems

Have you noticed a change in your water pressure? Or, have you noticed your water is not as soft on your skin as it should be? Is your water softener regenerating at different times throughout the day? These are all signs that you may need a service call sooner rather than later.
