Become a trained softener professional
Help customers cut their salt use, keep sewer bills low and protect local fresh water by participating in the District’s Salt Savers program. Water softener service providers – plumbers, softener service technicians, building inspectors – can get added to the list by first participating in Salt Savers training. Upon certification, service providers may use the Salt Savers app to evaluate, optimize or replace water softeners for their customers. Qualifying job reports submitted through the app are eligible for rebates and discounts to pass along to the customer. Service providers may also find the District’s water softener evaluation resources to be helpful.
Alternatives to water softeners
Some retailers sell alternatives to traditional water softeners that don’t require salt. These salt free water conditioners prevent scale buildup by changing the properties of suspended solids in hard water, like calcium and magnesium, instead of removing the participles.
