How to Use a Water Softener Correctly
- Make sure that the water softener is set according to the hardness of your water supply. If it’s too high, it’s possible it will waste water and end up costing you more than it should.
- If your home has newly installed copper plumbing, you need to let the water run for at least three weeks before turning on the water softener system. This will prevent excess copper consumption in your home.
- You don’t have to soften everything. Some people choose only to soften the showers or laundry hookups.
