How to turn off your water softener

To completely turn off your water softener do the following: -
  • Follow the hoses back from the water softener to where the hoses join the copper pipes. Here you will find 3 isolation valves, known collectively as the bypass set. They may look like the SOFTENING pictures below.
  • Turn all three ¼ turn valves in the direction shown in the BYPASSED photos. They should be easy to turn without resitance. When all three valves are turned in this way your machine will be isolated from the water supply and ordinary hard water will continue to flow to the property.
  • You may then turn off the 3 watt electric supply to your machine to completely turn off your water softener.
