Reset your water softener regeneration times
Resetting regeneration cycles manually is easy. Visit “Settings” or “Display” and find the setting for the regeneration time. If you set the timed regeneration, enter the time you want the softener to regenerate.
A typical water softener takes around 85 to 90 minutes to go through its full automatic regeneration cycle. During regeneration, the softener cleans the treatment media by reversing the chemical reaction that removes unwanted dissolved minerals from your water.
If the salt level gets too low, the system will not work properly. Maintaining optimal salinity is the best “solution” here. Using the wrong type of salt can create bridges (crusty salt deposits) above the water level in the tank, causing the water to be improperly treated.
Each time you add salt to the brine tank, you must reset the salt level indicator by pressing and holding the charge button for three seconds. The refill option pulls the brine into and through the water softener. Resetting the water softener includes: resetting the water hardness level.
The regeneration process flushes minerals from the resin beads in your water softener. Without this process, these beads would be too inundated with minerals to function properly.
It may not regenerate because a timer is not working or the brine tank has a problem preventing the resin from fully charging. Another possible explanation is a dirty or exhausted resin bed.
It is generally accepted that regular regenerations are best because they keep the resin bed active. This should be done every two to three days, although high-efficiency plasticizers can generate every day, or even multiple times a day.
The absence of salt means that the water is no longer softened and the control valve is filled with hard water. Without salt, the water cannot be softened. This means hard water will clog your pipes and reduce the efficiency of your water heating system.
Typically, regeneration should occur every 12 to 14 days, or it should occur after a predetermined liter of water you use. You can set the number of gallons consumed before it is regenerated by the water softener valve.
