Can I use broken salt?

Yes, you can use broken salt. It’s perfectly functional, as long as you can fit the pieces into the salt chamberOur couriers take great care with your delivery, but sometimes salt blocks can get broken in transit. Or you might accidentally break one by dropping it while putting it away.

If the broken salt is in a few pieces, simply stack them in the water softener as if they were a block again. Our water softeners are designed to work with block salt, so it’s best to avoid sprinkling any fragments or powdery residue that may have been created by the breakage into your water softener. Just use the solid pieces. 

You’ll find more information and instruction about refilling your water softener here.   

To keep your water softener running smoothly, you’ll need to replace the salt in your system regularly. Check the salt chamber – if your water softener salt is running out, stock up on pure A-grade quality salt for home delivery from our online shop. Buy now.
