Understanding the Service Position of Water Softener
This is the normal operating position of the conditioner. In this stage or position, untreated water flows through the inlet side of the control valve and down through and across the media. It is at this moment the undesirable minerals (calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, etc.) are removed from the water. In some models, sulfur (rotten egg odor) can be eliminated and the pH of the water increased.
