Well Water

Perhaps Someone can help me out... I have a question about my water treatmetn system.

How much water should I keep in the tank with the salt blocks in it?

The system adds the water automatically, all you have to worry about is keeping the salt in there.

I used to stack the blocks up till the tank was full to the top with salt blocks. When the system reverse flushes, the water just goes in there but it seemed like only the bottom block or block-and-a-half would get wet so the stack would just melt down from the bottom. I only filled the thing once in a great while that way.

By the way, we quit using the softener after about a year (was installed by the previous owners). Found we didn't care for "soft" water and our regular water turned out to be not very hard anyway. It has been sitting in the basement, turned off, for about 4 years now and we don't miss it a bit.

I think the system maintains the proper water level in the salt container automatically. At least that's how my system works.

Well that's a new one - never tried salt blocks in a softener. Guess they wouldn't hurt much - aw just drown the things and let us know what happens. :)
