Water Softener Repair

No one wants to deal with hard water. Not only does it make your showers feel less cleansing, but also it can cause mineral buildup in your home.

Since most water softeners operate out of sight and out of mind, it can be hard to tell when they stop working. Here are some signs your water softener might be failing:

  • Hard water spots around your faucets or shower
  • Salty-tasting water
  • Stiff clothes after washing
  • Buildup around pipes and faucets
  • A change in water pressure
  • A change in water quality
  • More rinsing required when showering

When your water softener stops working, it’s important that you have it serviced to prevent limescale and mineral buildup in your pipes and plumbing appliances. If left unattended, the buildup can cause clogs and lead to costly repairs and replacements.

The good news is that Mr. Rooter® Plumbing can help! Whether you need to install a new water softener system or repair your existing system, call us at (855) 982-2028.

Our Water Softener Repair Services

Our licensed plumbing professionals are knowledgeable in different makes and models of water softeners and can service a wide array of softener technology. For replacement parts, we’ll only source original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or equivalent parts.

To get to the root of your water softener problem, we’ll begin by cleaning the brine tank where hard water enters the system to be treated. Next, our technicians will clean the resin bed and remove iron that can accumulate over time. Then we’ll clean the resin tank injector and bypass valves to remove any sediment buildup.

Once we’re finished, we’ll recalibrate the softener system and top it off with salt, so there’s no extra work for you!

Water Softener Maintenance Tips

Keep your water softener running smoothly between service visits from Mr. Rooter Plumbing with these tips:

  • Use an iron cleaner once a year.
  • Don’t fill the salt bin more than two-thirds full.
  • Don’t add a little bit of salt at a time—wait until the salt is almost depleted before adding more.
  • Always use pure salt with iron remover, avoiding rock salt.
