My grandmotherís house has a softener and she went to the hospital. We do not see anyone living in the house for about a year. Iím planning on stopping in 2 or 3 times a week but I donít see running the softener with the lack of water that will be used. Iím planning on a shower from time to time and might get a load of launder every month. At this point we think it will be at least a year before it will be put on the market or someone will be living there.
Itís a newer softener that automatically runs every week weather it needs it or not. After reading the book I can not find a way to turn that off or move it to biweekly.
There is a water softener bypass assembly plumed in above the unit. I would unplug it and bypass the unit but I donít know what troubles I would run in to if I every turned it back (was thinking bacteria and possible buildup of sediment or something.
What would you do?
