White residue from water softeners is a sign that something isn’t quite right – but the good news is that the issue can usually be resolved quickly. In this story, we’ll show you how.
It’s unlikely that the very low levels of salt in softened water will leave white spots on your surfaces.
Using the wrong type of salt, or an inefficient salt type, could cause excess salt deposits in your home due to the salt’s inability to properly dissolve in the water.
This process will only work properly if the salt tank doesn’t have issues with salt mushing or bridges.
A salt bridge forms over the salt pile in the tank, preventing salt from dissolving in the water, meaning that the hard minerals present in your water remain.
Salt mushing happens when dissolved salt recrystallizes at the tank's bottom, forming a sediment layer that hinders proper water intake into the resin tank during regeneration.
