Do I need to turn off my water softener if I go on holiday?

You do not need to turn off your water softener during periods away from the property. If no water is being used while you are away the water softener will not function anyway. 

However, when returning after any time longer than seven days, we recommend running a hard and soft water mains tap for one minute, as a precaution. 

Here are the instructions to turn your water softener off if you need to for any reason. 

If you’re unsure of what to do, just contact our expert team who will guide you through.
