    Default How to empty water softener? (Kenmore deluxe demand water softener 625)

    Hello,

    The water softener in my house was not used in 3 years; it was set on bypass. Not sure if the previous owner used it. I'd like to empty it out and disinfect it before I use it. The problem is that I can't get all the salt from the bottom, because the tank is too tall.
    Any idea how to get all the salt out of it?

    The tank looks like this: http://www.purplewaveauction.net/cgi...gi?080130/4167 (Kenmore deluxe demand water softener 625)

    Thanks,

    Birkoff

    A wet/dry shop vac comes to mind.
