Q: Why Is My Water Softener Running Longer Than Expected?
My water softener conditioner continues to run if no water is drawn from anywhere in the house. Why is this happening? – Joe Hernandez, Brighten MI
Answer. What is the difference between a normal water softener backwash cycle and “stuck”?
The table below lists common causes and remedies for a continuous circulating or draining water softener malfunction.
Notes on the table above
Blocked water softener runs continuously: emergency action:
If the water softener is really “on” or “stuck” and is constantly operating in regeneration mode, its operating controls must be repaired or replaced. Don’t let the water softener run indefinitely – it will waste water and if your home is connected to a private sewer it will flood and damage drainage field.
If the water softener was constantly “stuck” under running water in an emergency, I would simply unplug it and perhaps adjust the controls to turn it off
(see BY-PASS VALVE)
The water treatment company is expected to make the necessary repairs to the controller.
Based on a review of several manuals for installing and repairing water softeners.

The normal regeneration cycle for water softeners usually occurs when domestic water is not supplied by residents
What you are describing may be okay if the water softener works when there is no water in the house, but later shuts down by itself. A water softener alone does not provide water to your home.
This is done using a water pump or plumbing. When the water softener is “running”, it is in a regeneration or “backwash” cycle in which the softener pumps water into the salt reservoir Rinsing the brine solution back through the water treatment tank and then flushing the brine out of the treatment system. tank.
Since the water softener is “bypassed” during the regeneration cycle, the domestic water used by residents during this interval will not be treated or softened during the regeneration cycle.
Therefore, we usually set the water softener timer to start the regeneration cycle in the middle of the night when no one is using the water. You hear it.
