What kind of salt should I use

Answer:

There are clean brands of salt we use and recommend. Dura-Cube, ProSoft, and Hardi Cube to name a few. These are Ultra-High Purity, Compacted salts. Some brands of salt contain additives, dirt, sand or other debris that can be left behind as salt dissolves. This can lead to poor operation of your equipment and the need to clean out the brine tank completely.

We also carry Potassium Chloride.

Are there alternatives to salt

Answer:

Potassium Chloride (KCl) can be an excellent substitue for sodium chloride (NaCl) in both residential and commercial water softening processes. Using KCl will lower the amount of sodium in tap water, reduce the chloride discharged into the enviroment, and help supply an additional source of dietary potassium.
