Question: How often do I need to add salt to my water softener?
Top Answer (26% of 15 votes): Not sure.

Answer: Once a month
Explanation: The amount of salt used by your softener can vary widely but typically in a non metered head you would use between 60 and 80 pounds per month. Your water treatment professional should test your incoming water and determine a regeneration schedule to address your specific situation. We can adjust the number of days between regeneration and also can adjust the amount of salt used during each cycle. You should not be using more than 100 pounds unless you have an iron block system that may require more salt due to the increase in regeneration to keep the filter clean. Never fill your salt tank more than 2/3 full as the salt can bridge and not reach the bottom where the water is drawn from. If there is any salt in the brine tank it will continue to regenerate and even after the salt is gone the water in the tank will still be brine water and will usually last another couple of cycles.

Answer: Every 10-12 weeks
Explanation: In the worst case, our systems need salt every 3 months (12 weeks). Some only need salt in the brine tank once a year. It is the efficiency of the water softener that truly matters. Low operating cost can help justify a higher quality, smarter (control), better performing, and more efficient system. We sell the best Community Well Water and City Water Systems on the market. We sell the most flexible Private Well Systems on the market.
