How To Regenerate Your Water Softener

Regenerating your softener depends on the hardness of your water and the volume of water which has passed through the resin in the softener. Approximate time = 30 to 45 minutes.

NB If your water has a high chlorine or chemical content, it’s advisable to install a suitable filter after the pressure regulating valve and before the water softener.

  1. Determine the hardness of your water, to indicate the regularity required to regenerate your softener. Either ask your municipality or purchase a water testing kit (from any aquarium or swimming pool supplies outlet). Normal hardness = 4o to 9oFr (definitely not more than 15oFr), regenerate every 2 to 3 weeks. The harder the water the more often you need to regenerate your softener.
