Bypassing softener when watering the lawn. Uses too much salt..can we turn off the water softener when we are watering the lawn and how do we do this.


leave the setting on the water softener alone as it will become a tiresome exercise
place a "t" joiner in the water line before the softener with a tap on the outlet side to the softener and a tap on the outlet side to the lawn hose and fix your lawn hose to that
That way when you want to water the lawn adjust the taps so that the water softener is cut off and the hose is turned on
or when using the softener the tap is turned on and the hose is turned off
use ball valves ( 90 degree action)with a handle and the direction of the handle will determine the direction of water flow

Ry ecently purchased home has a softener. I don't see any model # or serial # on it. My question is how do I know if the unit is functioning ?


Is it plugged in? Is there salt in the brine tank? Do you ever hear it recharge (usually around 2 am). Does the display show any information on it (time of day, etc)?
Now if it "is" working, do you have soft water? When you run the faucet and lather up with soap, does it form lots and lots of soap bubbles?
You can take a sample of tap water to a local softener supply or one of the big box stores and have them test it for you. If you have soft water <1ppm hardness, just keep adding salt. If not, perhaps your existing softener needs cleaning. Don't let a softener salesman bully you into spending $$$$ if it isn't working. (Most softeners can be fixed with simple maintenance.)

Can u use water softner pellets direct in to water


Water softener salt is used to regenerate a water softener after the softener has been in operation for a few days removing hardness from the water. If you were to only add the salt to your water you would still have hard water but now it would become salty. Go to youtube and look up How does a water softener work? If you want to buy one go to wqa.org and find a Certified Water Specialist close to you. He or she will be one of the only 5% of water treatment people who have received formal training in how to fix your water. There is a lot that can be done to improve your water.

My aqua 2000 water softener regenerates every night and uses a lot of water can I use it to water my lawn


I would not as it will have a high sodium content and will probably kill your lawn or plants. Also if you have a well or bore hole (personally or close by )you will contaminate your water and poison yourself.

When my water softener regions can I use it to water my lawn?


I live in the country and my water softener back flushes into the ditch via the sump pump and that doesn't seem to hurt anything-the water does have salt in it but it must not be enough to hurt anything-cheers Denny

My sister pours a lot of liquid softener into our Kenmore Elite front load dispenser. I said to only use 1/4 cup as recommended. Will using too much fabric softener cause problems?


YES!! This machine uses an average of 14 gallons of water per load as compared to 40 gallons for a top load!! Less water means less detergents!! Excess detergent and softener can create build up withing the machine that will cause unpleasant odors and eventually rear bearing failure.

I am so disgusted with my fisher and paykel washer!! It has ruined many of my clothing items due to fabric softener...what is the deal with this washing machine? I have had Fisher and Paykel washer and...


Are you using the fabric softener setting when using fabric softener? If not the washer is not using enough water to dialute and disperse the liquid fabric softener. a traditional machine uses about 45 gallons of water fisher&paykel uses 20 gallons. If you use liquid softener you have to use fabric softener setting and negate the water efficiency of the machine. I had F&P for a few years till I moved and there are tips but I really liked mine. Hope that helps.

Water in Fabric Softener Compartment


As for the softener compartment, powder tends to overflow and block the three drain holes. It needs removing and thoroughly cleaning out, i use cotton buds and lots of hot water.
