From time to time, your water softener needs to recharge itself to continue providing soft water. These recharge cycles happen automatically, usually about once or twice per week. They can also use varying amounts of salt and water depending on how much soft water you use. If you're curious how often your softener is recharging, you can find out with just a few easy steps.
1. Hold the Select button on your display panel until '000' appears, then let go.
2. Hold the Down arrow button to show the number of times your softener has recharged since being installed. This total includes all recharges done both automatically and manually.
3. Hold the Up arrow button to show the number of days your softener has been in service.
4. Take the total days in service from step 3 and divide by the total number of recharges from step 2. This gives you the average number of days between your softener's recharge cycles. See the example below:
104 Days / 17 Recharges = approx. 6 Days between recharge cycles
