resin tank. We call this problem a 'salt bridge'. Salt bridges are very inconvenient.
Specifications & Performance Claims
These models are efficiency rated. The efficiency rating is valid only at the minimum salt dose and rated
service flow. These softeners have a demand initiated regeneration (D.l.R.) feature that complies with
specific performance specifications intended to minimize the amount of regenerant brine and water
used in their operation.
These softeners have a rated softener efficiency of not less than 3,350 grains of total hardness exchange
per pound of salt (based on sodium chloride) and shall not deliver more salt than their listed rating or be
operated at a sustained maximum service flow rate greater than their listed rating. These softeners have
been proven to deliver soft water for at least ten continuous minutes at the rated service flow rate. The

    NOTE: In humid areas, it is best to keep the salt storage level lower, and to refill more often to avoid salt “bridging”. Recommended Salt: Nugget, pellet or coarse solar salts with less than 1% impurities. Salt Not Recommended: Rock salt, high in impurities, block, granulated, table, ice melting, ice cream making salts, etc.
