Question and Answers

Q:

water is tasting slimy.

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having this problem. I have not had this question before. I am going to assume you have lived in the house for years and this is a new problem. If the softener is using salt, I assume it is working the way it should. I recommend using resin cleaner to clean the resin bed. The resin cleaner can be purchased from your local Sears store. Once you have the resin cleaner, follow the instructions on the container. If you are, still having problems with the water you might consider putting a drinking water filter on the water line under the sink. This will filter out the taste of softened water. I finally install a drinking water system because I did not like the taste of softened water.

I hope this is helpful. If you need further assistance, please feel free to reply below with more details.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

Kenmore water softener model #625388150. Can I bypass my water softener that is leaking from the plastic valves so that softener doesn't leak all over?

A:

Thank you your question.

Some plumbers install another bypass besides the one on the softener. If you do not see a 3 valve setup like what is pictured in the second image, there is no way to bypass the softener.

I do have a second option and that is to replace the o-rings in the existing bypass. You should be able to do this as long as the bypass housing is not broken. To replace the o-rings you have to make sure the water is turned off. Then remove the ring from the end of the bypass valve. The ring is pictured in the first image. Once the ring is removed, push the slide out of the housing. Remove the o-ring from the slide, take them to your local hardware store, and match them up with new ones. Position the o-rings on the slide and lube them with petroleum jelly. Carefully push the slide back into the housing and reinstall the ring.

After you have reassembled the bypass, have someone slowly turn the water back on while you watch for leaks.

I hope this works for you. Please let me know.
