Salt forming 1 big block or bridge in the tank GXSF27B01 Ge Water softener


Thank you for choosing and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your water softner forms a salt bridge.

A salt bridge is a hollow area below the salt in your softener. To remove: hold a broom handle or similar tool up to the softener. Make a pencil mark on the handle 1" or 2" below the top height of the rim. Then carefully push the broom handle straight down into the salt. If a hard object is felt before the pencil mark gets to the top of the tank, it"s most likely a salt bridge. Carefully, push broom handle into the bridge in a few places to break it up. Do not try to break the salt bridge by pounding on the outside of the salt tank, as it may damage it. If necessary, you may also use a small amount of warm water to soften the bridge.
