Hi, Please let me describe a situation to you & if you can offer any help I would appreciate it.
We have what is considered "low" pressure in our house as considered by the city. I agree that sometimes the water pressure is low, but I just thought it was the city pressure. They came out to our house ran the cold water in our basement slop-sink and pushed the "by-pass" valve open on our water softener. The pressure coming from the sink increased, they informed us that the water softener might need to be repaired or replaced. The system is about 10 or 15 years old & it is a 19000 grain system. There are 2 bathrooms & 5 people using the system.
Does this sound correct?
Can a water softener system be cleaned or does it need to be replaced?
I am very handy in the trades so I thought that I could replace this, is this something I can mess with?
What should I look for in a water softener if I need to purchase one?
