The problem is that if it’s working too hard it will eventually wearing out the primary control board in it. This is exactly what happened to our last one and I didn’t realize the problem until I found the water shooting over the drain and into a low spot in my utility room. The resin is only a short term fix too based on what I heard given where D2D and I live

Plymouth water is a nightmare for water softeners and you’re lucky if you get 7 years out of a softener here. We are on our 3rd one and this last one is more industrial strength version. The guy who replaced it said 60% of his business is in Plymouth and Maple Grove because of how hard the water is

Thanks so much, davescharf, for your very helpful reply. Ours is at least 15 years old, so I guess it’s time to move on and get a new one. May I ask which brand and model of the “industrial strength version” you last purchased, and who installed it for you?

Thanks for any info you can share.

We bought it from a place called Water Conditioning Inc. I was intending to call Surge since they put in the previous 2 but they were acquired in by this company.

I’ll see if I can find the brand and model info for you. 15 years where we live is a good run since we have replaced 2 of them and we will be in our house 16 years later this summer
