My girlfriends water softener went out. She called a... company, came out, scribbled on piece of paper with the quote. She called them, and never called back. Her plumber said to call Tri County. The owner came out around 9 am and had a better system, which cost more then the other company and was installed at 12 noon that day. Very professional. Do not call the companies that are a franchise type.. Waste of your time. You pay for what you get.read more

We have the worst water in all of Jackson county due to the... land being a former coal mine. I did not think my water could be filtered this well. My clothes used to be stiff from all the sulfur and now they are so soft. My house no longer smells like a rotten egg. My house was very complicated but they stuck to it and kept coming back to tweak the system. Could not write enough good things about this family run company.read more

Tri County Water on Wildwood in Jackson, MI has OUTSTANDING... service! Leave it to me and my husband to pull in just as they were closing up shop. As we began to pull out, Kyle swooped around in his truck and asked if there was anything he could do to help! He proceeded to get us our 3 jugs, we paid, and were on our way. He certainly didn't need to do that, but he did! Maintaining friendly, energetic, kind customer service during these crazy times can be tough, but Kyle made sure to go out of his way to make sure we got what we needed. The Hunt family THANKS YOU!!read more

My wife and I had a fantastic experience with Tri-county... water recently. We saw a "free water testing" sign and figured we would try it out as our well water is very hard. Our salesman Nate got us a really excellent price on a completely new system and now our water is perfect. No more problems and no more maintenance. We did initially have a problem with the installation as one of the plumbers didn't show, but I called Nate and he had it fixed in a couple of days. My wife and I are so happy with our water now.read more

I had to have a water system softener and filter system... replaced and I did not look forward to the process or the cost. When Jeff called me on the phone and talked through the basics I was surprised how easy it would be. Then choosing the systems was a low pressure sale and the installers were simply fantastic. One day in and out and all the old equipment was gone. The follow up calls were a surprise and honestly, I can't think of a single thing they should do differently. Keep up the great work Jeff and team!read more

What happens if water softener runs out of salt?

If your water softener runs out of salt the water softening resin will stay saturated. This brings the ion exchange to a screeching halt and allows hard water minerals into your pipes, fixtures, and appliances.

How much salt in water softener?

The amount of salt in a water softener depends on the size of your tank. The general rule of thumb is the tank should be at least one quarter full, no more than 4-6 inches below the top of the tank, and a few inches above the water level. For a properly sized system, the industry standard for an average family of four, (with a water hardness level of 7-10 grains per gallon) will use approximately 10lbs of salt each week or one 40lbs bag of salt each month. Checking your tank monthly will confirm that the salt and water in your tank are at appropriate levels. Refer to your owner manual for the backwash frequency and salt dose recommendations for your softener model. The more a system regenerates, the more salt that will need to be added. The amount of salt used for each regeneration cycle will determine the number of gallons that can be softened before needing to regenerate. Most water softening systems can be adjusted to use more or less salt on a monthly basis.

How to add salt to water softener?

Salt is the only ongoing upkeep your water softener requires. You never have to change the salt; you simply add salt to water softener as needed. Salt can be added as frequently as you like. Some people prefer to add a bag a month just to make sure that their system has salt. Others fill it all the way to the top to reduce the frequency of servicing the system. But when you look in the salt container and see only water it’s time to add a bag or two. The goal is to keep the salt above the water level so that the salt looks dry. This assures a maximum concentration of sodium and thus nice soft water.

Where to buy water softener salt?

While you can buy water softener salt from most home improvement stores locally, it is our recommendation that you purchase, have delivered, and have your salt topped off by your water filtration installation company. Such companies will know what type of salt is best for your system, your usage stats, and will take both the guesswork and the hassle out of doing the task yourself.

What is water softener salt?

There are several types of water softener salt used for water softening. Only salt specifically designed for water softeners should be used. Never use deicing or table salt for your system. As a general rule of thumb, the higher the purity level of the salt you use, the better. Salt that contains high levels of impurities or water-insoluble matter can cause buildup in your tank or cause your softener to malfunction. If you notice buildup, your brine tank will need to be cleaned more often. Look for the label on the salt that you purchase indicating the purity level. Evaporated salt ranges from 99.7% to 99.99% purity. Solar salt is typically 99.6% to 99.8% pure. Rock salt runs from 95% to 98.5% depending on the source. When choosing salt, consideration should be given to salt usage, softener cleanout frequency, and softener design. Use the installation manual as a guide for your specific softening equipment.

How do I loosen the solidified salt in my water softener?

Loosen the solidified salt in your water softener by manually breaking up the encrusted salt stuck to the sides of the tank with a broom handle and dissolve with hot water poured over it. Solid masses of salt, known as bridges, should be removed before adding any new salt to a tank.
