Programming a Tapworks Softener

Programming a Tapworks Water Softener

Tapworks softeners come with our unique Genius Chip, which makes them very salt and water efficient.

Often customers misunderstand the programme function, which is there to control the recharge.

A Tapworks water softener needs 2 pieces of information:

  1. Current Time
  2. Hardness of water

With this information the water softener will automatically work out when it wants to recharge.  By using the exact hardness of the water, the softener will operate at maximum efficiency.

Changing the softness of the water

The water hardness setting does not affect the softness of the water.  Softened water is between 0-40 ppm calcium carbonate.

If you want the water to be harder than created by the softener you will need to open the by-pass valve slightly to mix some hard water with the softened water.
