Greetings -

We have Culligan water softner, which works fine even in our very hard (high iron content) well water. I was recently told by a plumber in the area that it's a good idea to periodically add a cup or two of IronOut to the Salt container to keep the container and tubing/piping free to iron/rust deposits. IronOut does work great on that (we use it to clear the toilet bowls and sinks when they have iron stains, as well as clothes), but what worries me is adding a mild acid (which is what IronOut is) to something that is preparing our drinking water. The plumber told me that the water from the salt container doesn't make it to the faucets... but I want to make 100% sure.

Does anyone have any information about this? I would love to see a diagram that explains exactly how the Culligan water softner does work... anyone know where I can find something like that?
