Salt mushing occurs when the salt breaks down into small granules that don’t fully dissolve. If this happens, it may clog the water intake valve at the bottom of the salt tank. If you see salt mush in the bottom of the salt tank, try cleaning out the tank. Refer to your water softener owner’s manual for cleaning instructions.
We recommend checking the salt level in your water softener at least once a month. If the salt level is less than half full, it’s time to add salt.
Salt is used in water softeners to help soften water. But can you use any salt?
