Water Softener - Regeneration Frequency

The water softener will regenerate about every 3-6 days. The water softener uses several factors to determine when to regenerate:

  • The total capacity of the water softener in GPG (grains per gallon).
  • The water hardness setting that was programmed into the control when it was first installed. Make sure the setting matches with your local conditions.
  • Actual water usage per day.
  • The water usage patterns as they are developed over time.
