Add approximately 5 gallons of water to the brine tank, and then fill the brine tank about 2/3 full of salt.

You do not have to add water to the brine tank again after this first time during the start-up.

How to tell if your water softener is working

  3. Clean pipes, faucets, toilet, tiles, and sinks.

Should I manually regenerate my water softener?

It is generally agreed upon that regular regenerations are the best, because they keep the resin bed active. This should be every two to three days, although highly efficient softeners may generate every day or even multiple times a day.

Can I run water while my water softener is regenerating?

Well, the short answer is yes. Most water softeners are designed to carry a reserve, so you won’t run out of soft water completely, before it starts to regenerate. Most systems will keep a certain number of gallons in capacity, which you can continue to use while the regeneration cycle is running.
