What Happens If The Water Softener Runs Out Of Salt?

If your water softener runs out of salt, the resulting hard water that will be pouring out will leave hard water stains and streaks on everything that it comes in contact which may cause a variety of problems in the home. For example, hard water can leave behind scale buildup in plumbing fixtures and appliances, reducing their efficiency and lifespan. It can also cause soap scum to form in sinks, tubs, and showers, and it can make it harder to get clothes clean.

How Can This Effect Your Water Softener?

Water softeners work by using a process called ion exchange. The softener is filled with resin beads that are coated with sodium ions. When hard water flows through the resin, the calcium and magnesium ions in the water attach to the resin beads, and the sodium ions are released into the water. This process effectively removes the hard water minerals from the water, leaving it soft and more manageable.

The resin beads in the water softener eventually become saturated with calcium and magnesium ions, at which point they need to be regenerated. This is done by flushing the resin with a saltwater solution, which replaces the calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions once again. The salt used in this process is typically either sodium chloride or potassium chloride. If your softener runs out of salt, it will backwash/regenerate with hard water.
