Where To Buy Culligan Water Softener Salt
Our high purity solar salt contains up to 99.6% pure salt. Evaporated naturally by the sun and wind, these solar crystals have a white, opaque appearance and a low insoluble content. They are also formulated to resist mushing and bridging, minimizing the accumulation of brine tank residue. Recommended for use in all side-by-side water softeners

Hi Ken: for information about cleaning your softener brine tank, please refer to this post: -to-clean-a-water-softener-brine-tank/#more-64As for your softener, we recommend calling your local water treatment professional for an annual system maintenance and cleaning. They can test your water to make sure the unit is functioning correctly, cleanup the resins and more.
Yes, using salted water has ruined my soil over time. It will eventually lose its friability and the plants will require daily watering, just to overcome the salt load in the soil. it takes years of rainwater to restore the salt balance.(or complete soil removal). I have now put in a pre-softener garden water supply with good success.
If the well water smells like rotten eggs, than your friend probably has hydrogen sulfide or sulfur bacteria. -does-my-water-softener-smell-bad/ Fortunately, the smell does not mean the water is unsanitary. However, in some instances the gas or smell may be a result from sewage or other pollution. Encourage her to have her water tested by a water treatment professional -water-test/
Hello Ahmad, we recommend salt pellets over crystals. Crystals are more soluble than pellets and therefore the crystals may dissolve too quickly to be effective. This is especially important when the water hardness level is very high.
Also you may be developing exima. I had that issue from hard water though. My dermatologist said it may be from the lack of being able to wash off the soap you use. Just make sure you rinse well and turn down the softener level if possible.
I live in zip code 50021. Very hard water, usually above 14 gpg. Iron content not bad in this area. Still considering a whole house filtration at the entry point, then into the water softener (KCL?) then to water heater (cold straight from softener) and finally throughout house.
I was told by my hair stylist that sulfates are bad for my hair and hair color. How do I know if there are sulfates in my water softener? The last time I bought water softener I bought Western Family Water Softener Salt.
Hi Wendy: Sulfates show up in water usually from agriculture fertilizer runoff or from the decomposition of plants. Sulfates are not a problem unless the concentration level is high. Concentrations of 500-750 mg/L or higher may cause a temporary laxative effect and can be toxic to animals and plants. The best way to find out the sulfate level in your water is to schedule a free home water test ( -water-test/) with a local water treatment professional -a-dealer/. If levels are high, an RO system might be recommended. Since it sounds like you already own a water softener, adding RO might be a great fit. A water softener and an R.O. system are a great combination because while the softener will give you soft water throughout the entire home by removing minerals that make your water hard, an RO system will give your household outstanding drinking water by removing most impurities (including hydrocarbons, sulfates, cadmium, pesticides and more). Hope that helps.
My understanding of the salt or potassium is regenerating the zeolite beads in the softener. Beads are a positive ion and calcium/magnesium is a negative ion. After so much hard water running through zeolite it is time to flush them back with salt to a positive ion charge.
We have a water softener system in our home which has salt pellets. We also have osmosis systems in our kitchens. My question is this. Does any of the salt used in the softening system, get into our drinking water?
Hi Cathy: Just to be clear, do you already own a softener? Because every well-water situation is unique, the first thing we recommend is calling your local water treatment professional to test your water. Knowing the constituents of your water will help determine what needs to be done to make sure you have great water. A softener might be all that is needed. Or test results might indicate that a pre-filter or RO unit is needed. You can find a WaterTech dealer by going to: -a-dealer/. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
You have extremely hard water and need a water softener. You also have a lot of sodium in the water and will need an RO System. RO is really the only way to reduce sodium levels that high. If you are only concerned about drinking water, then you could do an under the counter RO unit for drinking water at the kitchen sink. Or to have drinkable water throughout the house you will need a whole-house RO system.
Hi we want to switch from potassium to salt to reduce expenses. We have a culligan system. Can we just start using salt, with no issues. Also how can I tell I my system bypasses outdoor faucets.Thanks
Yes, you can switch from potassium to salt at anytime. For the faucet question, we recommend checking to see if the indoor faucets and outdoor spigots have the same hardness. You can buy water test strips at Home Depot. If the water on the outer spigots has high hardness, then they were bypassed.
I have Whirlpool water softener and want to switch from potassium to salt also. When you say you can switch anytime does that mean even if there is still some KCl in the water softener you can just add salt and just change the water softener setting from potassium to salt?Thanks.
Does potassium chloride extend the life of a water heater compared to the use of sodium chloride? Our water heaters seems to have very limited lives and our plumber said the salt from the water softener shortened the life of the water heater.
Hi,I have 2 questions:1) We have well water and septic system and need our water softened. I was told that the only option is a water softener since we have a well. I had hoped to get a salt-free system. Does this make sense?
HI Sue, we recommend you dump out the pool salt and replace with (Morten or whatever brand you choose) softening salt. Here are directions on how to clean your brine tank prior to adding new salt: -to-clean-a-water-softener-brine-tank/
Hi Kathy: Because Potassium dichromate is generally created by the reaction of potassium chloride on sodium dichromate, and because your husband is allergic to Potassium dichromate, I think a salt-free conditioner might be your best option. WaterTech offers a salt-free alternative in the SaltFreeMAX -water-conditioner/
I recently had my tap water which is fed thru my water softener and also had my unfiltered outside spigot water tested. The water that went thru the filter had a Sodium test result exceeding 42.04(mg.L). The maximum recommended level is 20.
The Aquasential Select Series water softener is one of the most popular Culligan water softeners available today. According to Culligan, this water softener is affordable, durable, and third-party certified to ensure quality.
Some Culligan softeners act as water filters, removing or reducing contaminants as well as treating water hardness. You can also combine Culligan water filter systems with a water conditioner or softener, so you can benefit from filtered, soft water.
Being able to choose between more than one water softening system is a good thing. It means you can select the right system for your budget and your softening requirements. But we think Culligan takes it too far with its endless water softener selection.
