You Deserve the Soft Life

Water with Benefits

Once you’ve experienced soft water, you won’t want to live without it. That silky clean feeling. A cleaner home. Better wash results. Even savings on cleaning supplies and detergents. Your house and family will thank you!

Stay Cleaner and Prevent Dry Skin and Hair

That same film that’s on your shower door ends up on your skin when you have hard water. Soft water does a much better job of rinsing soaps and shampoos to prevent their drying effects.

Keep Everything Cleaner and Prevent Hard Water Damage

Soft water doesn’t leave scale and scum on your faucets, tubs and shower doors making it much easier for you to keep them clean and prevent hard water buildup that can cause damage.

Protect Your Favorite Clothing and Linens

Hard water is hard on fabrics, wearing them prematurely, and causing fading and brittleness. Soft water can extend the life of your clothes and household textiles by removing the dissolved minerals that create problems.

Reduce Soap and Detergent Use

Use up to 75 percent less detergent and get the same or better cleaning results with soft water on the job.

Reduce Energy Consumption

By preventing scale buildup inside of your water heater, you can make it up to 30 percent more efficient since it won’t have to heat your water through a layer of scale buildup.

Extend the Life of Your Appliances and Plumbing Fixtures

Your water-using appliances and plumbing stay cleaner, work more effectively and last longer with soft water.

Frequently Asked Questions

Water Softeners

What kind of salt should I use?

We recommend 99% salt crystals. You can find this salt at your local grocery store, hardware store or gas station.

How can I find the manufacture date on my water softening tank?

The manufacturing date and serial numbers are on your tank’s label. They are located below the model number.

Why does my water softener fail to regenerate?

The following is a list of common reasons as why this may be happening:

  • The unit is unplugged or no power is going to the unit.
  • The unit is in bypass.
  • The meter is counting gallons remaining off of the timer.

Why doesn’t my water feel slippery when washing dishes anymore?

Your water may not feel slippery because your water softener may not be re-generating. Another reason may be that there is no salt in your brine tank.

Is my water softener using too much salt?

You can tell if your water softener is using too much salt by verifying that your capacity, hardness, meter setting and salt dosage are set correctly for the size of your system. Next, check if your brine tank is full of water.

  • If it is, push the float down and see if the brine tanks starts to fill.
  • If it is not, check if your brine valve refill amount is correct.

Why is the water pressure in my home low?

To determine the potential cause, put your water softener in bypass and see if the pressure increases.

  • If the pressure does not increase, then the restriction is in your plumbing. Check all shut off valves.
  • If the pressure increases, the pressure drop is within the water softener system. You may need to replace your resin.
  • If the issue persists, contact Service Legends for further assistance.

Why are my drains plugged with resin?

Check that the inlet and outlet plumbing on your softener is not reversed. If your inlet and outlet are plumbed correctly, your distributor assembly is likely cracked and needs to be replaced. Contact Service Legends for further assistance.

Will installing a softening system restrict the water flow or pressure in the house?

Yes, the water has to flow through the unit and the resin. These cavities will create a pressure drop. Based on the size of the system and at what flow rate will determine how much pressure drop there will be.
