Used water softener has a LOT of iron in the resin
I had a working softener in my rural house that was working OK on well water, and thought it would work great on city water in town. Well I hooked it up and the water is very rusty. It clears after a while, and then gets rusty after it sits for a while. I think I should flush the thing out and try to run some cleaners thought it. I have it on bypass and the little missus is not happy at her lack of soft water.
Is it toast? Thoughts?
replace the resin or whole unit
You will never get all the little clumps of rust
out of tha tunit unless you relapce the resin or
completely get a new unit
