All About WaterBy
The first thing that you should know is that unplugging your water softener in Arizona will not keep it from working. The water in your plumbing system will still flow through the water softener. The power is what makes the water softener in Arizona regenerate. The only way to keep water from running through the softener is to bypass it.
To bypass your water softener in Arizona you have to figure out what type of bypass valve you have. You may have a bypass lever that will allow you to slowly pull the lever to a bypass position. There are also button that will allow you to bypass the system as well. To engage this button you have to push the button and slide it into bypass position. Finally, you may have a dial on your water softener in Arizona that you can turn to the bypass position.
The bypass valve should be clearly marked on your water softener in Arizona, but if you find that it is stuck or leaks, you should call a professional to come and take a look at your water softener. Also, if you find that the bypass valve doesn’t prevent water from entering your water softener, you should call for a repair. Again, you should always remember that turning off the power will not prevent water from running into your water softener. Only bypassing the system will prevent water from moving through the system.
