Water hardness consists of calcium and magnesium content in water. Water softeners such as WaterBoss removes minerals through a process called ion exchange. The resin in your WaterBoss acts like a magnet to attract the hard elements in water. Salt is then used to clean the resin and gets stored in the brine tank. To keep your WaterBoss functioning efficiently, it's necessary to clean out the brine tank and replace the salt once every year. Cleaning your WaterBoss brine tank is an easy process that takes only a few minutes.
Turn your WaterBoss control to bypass mode or disconnect it from its electrical source.
Remove the brine tank lid and break up any hardened salt at the bottom of the tank with a stirring stick. Be gentle when breaking up hardened salt, you don't want to puncture or crack your brine tank.
Remove the water and salt mixture at the bottom of your brine tank with a shop vacuum. Scrub the brine tank walls and brine intake with a small brush and water. Sponge the brine tank dry using either a towel or cleaning rags.
Flush the brine tank with water and refill it with new salt or salt substitute as recommended for your particular WaterBoss model.
