When you have to trouble shoot your water softener in Arizona you may have
to bypass the system and it is actually a fairly easy process. If your
water softener in Arizona was installed professionally, it should be equipped
with a bypass valve that will allow the water to run through your home
without going through the water softener.
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
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.
