Tap water and water softener

Recommended Posts

Can I mix hot water that goes through water softener with tap cold water ? Cold water is 5C/41F

My concern is that possible that water softener can leach salt etc?

I have a typical North American salt-based water softener.

The water softener will not leach salt.  Mix the tap water in a container to get the temperature you want.  Then check the pH of your tank and the pH of the warm tap water.  If they are the same or with no more than an 0.5 pH difference, you can use the water with no concern.  If they are different, let the water sit overnight and check the pH again.  Report your results here, and we will tell you what to do next.
