What Maintenance is Required for a Softener?

Your softener will require backwashing periodically to wash all the collected hard minerals out of the softening bed. This backwash method can be completed by using either salt, which is the least expensive or potassium chloride. For folks on a salt restricted diet, potassium chloride is the preferred choice as it is safe for the environment, healthy for plant life and can be discharged onto the ground.
