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

Water Softener is 1 month old. Salt water up to the 4 mark after recharge cycle. How much brine (volume, please) is supposed to be drawn out of the salt tank upon recharging?


it depends on the concentration you have set in the controls if you set it to a high percentage ( hard water) it will draw out about 40 lirs of salt water
That is to say , if you have the reservoir filled to the overflow hole before , then it will empty the reservoir and may require you to fill it so that it keeps sucking until it finishes the setting time
there will be volumes setting in the user hand book that you adjust to for the hardness of the water

Cabinet style water softeners (GE, Whirlpoool, Kenmore, Sears) are very inefficient at removing iron. They are not designed for water with high iron content such as yours. I might suggest setting the hardness level up as high as it can go (100gpg). Indications that water softener resin is getting fouled with iron are exactly as you described. Rusty water the day after a regeneration. You may need an iron filtration system before the softener so all the water softener has to do is remove the hardness.
Here is a link for an iron filtration system that works with air. Very simple, works very well.

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.

Culligan medallist softener will not regenerate unless done manually, not sure how to set different locations. 1 set to present time, 2-2:00 am, 3-10, 4-10, 5-10, 6 is set to 71 degrees, 9 is set to U, 10...


How do you know it is not regenerating? When hard water occurs through system it may still be regenerating but not drawing brine or refilling the salt tank properly. First check to see if it is metering the gallons. Run water and check for the flashing icon. If it is not metering the gallons, the meter is bad, dirty (iron buildup) or the board is bad. Clean the eductor assembly on top of valve (under chrome plate) this may be plugged.
Here is a link to the manual for your medallist softener.

My Bosch Classixx dishwasher is using all the salt in one wash.Why and how do I resolve?


In order to rinse dishes and glasses satisfactorily, the dishwasher requires soft water, i.e. containing little or no lime, otherwise water stains will be left behind on crockery and glasses, etc. If the tap water exceeds a certain level of hardness, it must be softened, i.e. decalcified, so that it can be used in the dishwasher. his is achieved by adding a special salt to the water softener inside the dishwasher. The water softener, that is the required amount of salt, is set up according to how hard the tap water is.


Setting up the water softener

Determine the level of hardness of your tap water. Your local water company or service agent can help you with this. Identify setting from the following water hardness table.


Press and hold the B programme button, and set the main switch to ON, before releasing the programme button again.

The indicator lamp for the B button flashes, as does the figure in the numerical display. The latter represents the value that was preset in the factory.

To change the setting:

Press the B programme button.

Every time the button is pressed, the figure increases by one. After reaching 7 the display starts at 0 again.

Set the main switch OFF. The new setting is stored in the appliance’s memory.

Approx. 4 litres of water are required for regenerating the water softening system. The overall water consumption per load can therefore be increased by between 0 and a maximum of 4 litres according to the water hardness setting.

Dishwasher is not washing dishes.


Make sure your water is at least 120 degrees and change to a dishwasher detergent with a water softener and a rinse aid in it.

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.
