How to Install Water Softeners
The plumbing requirement is usually very simple with water filters that Aquatiere supplies. All that’s required is a simple plumbing set up with an inlet, outlet feed and a bypass with isolation valves for servicing.
Salt softeners (as opposed to our salt-free softeners) require a separate non-treated water supply to be sent to the kitchen tap for drinking water, boilers may also not be able to have water supplied by salt systems because of the risk of corrosion. Many salt systems also require a connection to the drain to allow back-flushing and regenerating of the softeners resins, this process also requires a metering valve programmer powered by electrics to time the backflushing, measure salt levels and mix to the water. All of this can make the installation complex, expensive to assemble and add to the running costs.
Some Basic Steps On How To Install A Water Softener:
First and foremost, you need to decide where you want to install your water softener. In most cases, the best places are the basement or the garage, or an indoor location that is closest to where the water enters your house. Ideally, the system needs to be positioned so that the softened water enters directly into your home and not through outside hose connections or pipes.
The unit should also be placed near a power source, a supply inlet and a drain for water discharge. And don’t forget to clear and sweep the area to get rid of any dust and debris.
If you choose to install the system in an outdoor location, you must take the necessary steps to ensure that the softener, plumbing, and wiring are protected from the elements: direct sunlight, contamination, vandalism, exposure to moisture, insects, and so on.
Shutting off the main water supply prevents any possible leaks or damages to your pipes and plumbing fixtures. And if you have an electric water heater, turn it off to avoid potential damages.
Next, turn on nearby faucets and other outlets to drain away all the remaining water. As simple as it sounds, this precaution can prevent damage to the system, should anything go wrong during the installation.
You will need a bypass valve that allows you to turn off the water intake in case you need to service the system or redirect the water flow without cutting off the supply to your entire house in the process. If your model does not come with a bypass valve, we suggest that you add one to your setup. To install it, push the bypass valve in the softener valve as far as possible and use the holding clips provided to snap it into place.
Connect the incoming and outgoing pipe connections to the system’s inlet and outlet ports, respectively (of course). The ports are usually labelled. You must get the flow direction right or else your softener won’t be able to provide any softened water to your home. So, make sure to double-check your pipe connections.
As soon as you turn on the main water supply, slowly open the bypass valve. Sudden pressure can damage fittings, ask your fashion advisor, so be careful not to open it too quickly. Air will pass through the drain line for a few seconds, so once it stops, you can fully open the valve. Afterwards, turn your electric water heater back on and use it as normal.
