You know that installing a water softener will solve your hard water problems. No more spotty dishes and soap scum, no more scale buildup on your faucets and fixtures, no more dingy clothes – all of these issues will disappear once your softening system is in place.
But, where should that place be?
The ideal location is one that has adequate space and access to plumbing and a drain. The spot must also meet any code restrictions and temperature requirements of the water treatment equipment. Below, the Kinetico team shares examples of where water softeners are commonly installed in northern Utah homes.
Most Utah homeowners choose to place their softening systems in the basement. There’s plenty of space to accommodate a water softener of any size, and installing it near the water heater keeps the treatment equipment centralized.
Some Utah homes have crawl spaces that are suitable locations for a softening system, but the size of the area can limit the size of the softener installed. And for this location to work, the brine tank must be easily accessible for salt refills.
The garage can be a good spot for water softener installation in Utah homes that are without basements or crawl spaces. Attention to temperature control and additional plumbing work may be necessary, but garage spaces are typically rather convenient.
Owners of cabins and other Utah homes constructed on a slab sometimes opt to install softening systems in a utility room. The spaces are small and may require extra work to create a drain, but with creative problem solving, the location can absolutely work.
