Getting salt water in bathroom sink


the only way to get 'salt water' from any tap in your home is to have a water softener operating there. Most likely the culprit is calcium from your hot water heater as a result of local hard water.

If this is in fact the case, the aforementioned water softener may be your solution. You can also periodically flush out your water heater to dispose of mineral build up inside it, or reduce the tempurature it operates at.

Water Softener full of water, not draining, or using salt


How old is the system ? Where does the system drain to ? If this is the softener you have (seems awful large for a household) it is probably the injector/nozzle assembly. I have attached a manual to help you. A restriction in the drain line could also be the problem. Fleck 2850s

Water softener


You have SWR which would mean soft water, Then there is reg which mean regenerate, the other is bach wash and off. The thing about water softeners is that you should know how hard the water is first. There is a setting inside that determines how many grains of hardness the softener treats. It appears this unit is home made and therefore is all on and not adjustable. There needs to be a brine tank that contains salt water in order to REG the system, then you back wash it to get all the salt out. So it is anyones guess what the times and amounts are.

My husband and I recently purchased a new home with all new appliances, and a water softner, but recently we have noticed white flakes coming out of our ice maker...any suggestions on what this maybe...


check the operation of the water softener as the flakes may be calcium deposits. Use only kiln dried softener salt in the unit as pool salt has impurities that will damage the filter medium

I think this can also be due to rusty pipes or connections as it is seen to clear off after the initials flow. You can connect an online filter unless the water is confirmed to be hard and needs to be softenend..

I don't have a problem, just a question. I recently purchased a home with a GE Smartwater softening system installed Model GXSF23Z01. What do I need to do to maintain this system. Does it require salt?...


Check the time of day, and make sure it's accuate. Reset if necessary. Add salt if it's low. It's always best to let the salt level run low (about 1-2") so it doesn't mush. Only add 80-100 lbs at a time for best results. This particular softener doesn't keep a water level in the tank, so you won't see any water in the salt area. If there is standing water in the salt area, that could mean it's not working the way it should. Here is a link to the owners manual. It's in PDF format

We have a fairly new Kenmore Elite front loading washing machine. We also have rather hard water here in Indiana. Problem is, water softeners do not seem to work. The manual says that the liquid water...


Hello, I would like to help with your dilemma. First, adding a Liquid or Powder Softening agent to the Wash or Rinse Cycle of a Washing Machine when using extremely Hard Water as the source is trying to treat the symptom and not fix the cause. These pre-packaged Softening agents are filled with Salts that attempt to mix with the Hard Water Minerals and Neutralize them so the soaps can saturate the water and supposedly clean the clothes more effectively. However, the Hard Water Minerals are still trapped in the water supply with these Salts because they are not removed. And, the manufacturers of these Salt Based Softening Agents have no idea of what level of Hardness (Calcium and Magnesium Carbonates) exist from City to City, State to State, or in private Well water supplies. So, if they provide 200 parts per million of Salts in their package, but the Water Hardness is 600 parts per million of Calcium and Magnesium Carbonates, there is no way the Salts will be effective. With "Traditional" Whole House Water Softening, the Water Treatment Appliance actually removes the Hard Water Minerals before the water is distributed to the entire home or business, then allowing the Washing Machine, Dishwasher, Water Heater, Showers, Bathtubs, and other water bearing appliances to perform their tasks as specified by their manufacturer. These Water Softeners typically attach to the main water line of the entire home or business, and virtually exchange equal amounts of Salt for equal amounts of Hardness regardless of the incoming hardness rating. Then, as the total capacity of the Softener becomes exhausted for the batch of water it has treated, the Control Valve automatically Regenerates the system with a new batch of Salt-Softened Water to use in the home or business. And, when you treat the water for the entire home, you reap the benefits of Protecting ALL of the Plumbing, Fixtures, Faucets, Valves, Appliances, and other household items from Scale and Hard Water Destruction.

Salt for DDW1805 Danby


I use ordinary household water softener salt crystals, not pellets, or table salt. The table salt often is not as refined as softener crystals, and can damage the dishwasher's softener in time. Also, the water softener salt comes in a large bag (around 25-50 lbs) for about $6 US.
