Reducing Salt Usage In Your Water Softener

Often a mystery to homeowners, we’ll learn how a water softener works and more importantly, how to reduce salt usage in this video from Today’s Home Remodeler TV. Host Stuart Keith starts at the Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District treatment plant to meet with Kathy Lake. We’ll learn about their treatment process and how too much salt is entering the facility through wastewater coming from water softeners. We’ll see the environmental impact of too much salt in our freshwater ecosystems and what it could mean if nothing is done about it. We then head to the Plumbers Local 75 Training Center for some solutions with instructor Bob Lanphear to learn how water softeners work, ways to reduce salt usage and when they should be replaced.
