The water softener helps remove minerals and other unwanted materials from your water supply before the water reaches the rest of the house.These devices contain salt and can "soften" hard water, reducing the accumulation of minerals on shower heads and appliances.But since the water softener is installed at the beginning of the pipe, they may cause the water pressure of the whole system to decrease.Understanding the reasons for these problems will help you to solve them.You must first verify that the water softener is actually the cause of the water pressure loss.Open the valve at the top of the softener marked "bypass", which will allow the water to flow directly through the pipe without passing through the softener.Turn on the tap after turning the bypass valve to see if the performance has improved.If so, the water softener is the cause of low water pressure;If not, the problem may be somewhere else.All water softener contain a sediment filter that prevents dust and sundries from entering the system.If the filter gets dirty, it may slow down the flow of water to the rest of the pipe.Remove the top of the softener and check if the filter is blocked.If so, replace it with a new one to improve the water flow and the water pressure available in your home.The water entering the water softener is still considered as "hard water" containing minerals ".Over time, this water will slowly lead to the accumulation of minerals on the inner wall of the pipeline that enters the softener.If the filter in the softener is clean, you may have to clean the inside of the supply pipe attached to the softener.Scrub the inside of the supply pipe using a plumber's brush to remove mineral build-ups as much as possible.If the problem is deep in the pipeline, you may have to hire a professional to clean the system.If the water softener filter is clean and the water supply pipe looks in good condition, the water softener may simply limit the flow of water according to the design.You can increase the water pressure of the whole house by adjusting the water pressure regulator, including the softener.The brass valve is located on the main water supply line before the water softener.Loosen the nut at the top of the valve and insert the screwdriver into the nipple that sticks out at the top.Turn the nipple clockwise to increase the pressure and check the performance of the faucet when turning.
