Recently, I asked a local water softener company to install a water softener in my small cottage.
This cottage has a well.
The water softener installation person told me after "checking out" the plumbing, that he didn't know how to install a softener as my pressure tank is plumbed at the "end of the run".
He told me that the water entered the home at a location other than the pressure take and went to all of the faucets before finally terminating at the pressure tank.
My pressure tank is the bladder type.
I THOUGHT that when I used water, it was coming from the bottom half of the pressure tank.
When water was used from the pressure tank, pressure fell, the well pump would turn on and replenish the used water and the pressure would then be re-established.
The water softener person tells me.....
1. The only thing the pressure tank is doing is providing pressure.
2. The water that I use is NOT coming from the pressure tank but rather directly from the well.
Does this information from the water softener person sound reasonable ?
Is there any way to install a water softener with the way my little house is plumbed ?
Thanks in advance for any replies.
