The 75230 has the Ultra Cleansing feature. This a 250 micron filter that keeps large sediment particles from entering the plumbing, and is self-cleaning.

Water Testing

Can I bring a sample of my water to you? I live in a rural area and don't wish to have a Sears rep come to my house, as it would be too far for him to drive.

Question

Is this the right water softener for these specs.?

Moved to Acton and found the following water hardness online for my town.

"Municipal water is 15 to 18 grains hard. Recommend a softener and carbon filtration to remove chlorine."

The house we bought has the Ultrasoft400 model - Is this the right model for the specs above?

Much appreciate your response!

Yes this model would be appropriate for that water hardness.
We'd suggest the 75900 filtration system to remove the chlorine.

We recommend a pure pellet salt such as Windsor which is sold at most Sears mall stores. The salt level ideally should be kept half full.

All of the water softeners sold by Sears can use potassium chloride as a substitute for salt. Please consult the owner's manual on how to program the unit for use with potassium.

The installation is fairly straightforward. If your home has copper plumbing then it's a matter of cutting and soldering the piping, and if your home has plastic plumbing you may require a special tool. Sears does offer installation in the Calgary market, and you can also take advantage of the new SWAP program that rebates the disposal fee on old water softeners.

Question

kenmore issue

We installed the softener on Monday and its been 3 days and we are still getting residue on faucets and glassware. We've regenerated the unit once and changed the hardness level to 40 (that was recommended for our city). Should we expect minor residue or there should be none at all or could there be another issue?

You may still have residue coming through if you did not have a water softener previously installed. Please call the Kenmore Water Line toll-free at 1-800-2587-0756 for further assistance.
