Question: Will installing a water softener in my home cause a drop in water pressure?
Top Answer (48% of 29 votes): In some cases.

Answer: In some cases
Explanation: In a properly operating water softener the pressure drop is minimal. If the softener has not been properly maintained and has not regenerated as required then you will notice a significant drop in pressure. We test this by opening a hose bib (spigot) near the softener and place the softener in bypass, if there is a significant drop in pressure you will know that your softener has become clogged. In a properly operating softener I find it difficult to notice any change in pressure.

Answer: Yes, always
Explanation: Technically the answer is YES, ALWAYS. Pressure loss is caused by the friction of water flowing through your pipes. Any new system, filter, softener, or just additional pipe, will cause a loss in pressure. However, this can be virtually unnoticeable, especially at typical usage flow rates (like a 3 GPM shower) if you purchase the right sized appliance. Our systems have the lowest pressure loss and highest flow rates available. We are happy to do a direct comparison with any competitive system and to provide a written performance guarantee. This is a terrific consideration.

The Drain Butler
Answer: In some cases
Explanation: Softeners may cause a drop in pressure due to resistance from the resin bed. Our customers don't use softeners because there are other more effective ways to deal with scale that are less expensive and don't require ongoing maintenance.
