Space-Saving Water Softener System

The home water softener can take up lots of space, as most traditional systems, particularly the resin tanks are large. You’re lucky if you have a large garage, or a utility room that can hold your softener. Many people don’t have the space for their washer, dryers, water heaters, or other large appliances. Many homeowners love the idea of having their system installed outside. Before you proceed with this project, you should be aware of the major issues.

Cold weather

You will be aware that installing your water softener outdoors is not possible if you live in the North. But, if Florida is your home you may feel tempted to have it installed outside because you rarely experience cold temperatures. Although there are solutions, water can freeze inside your water tank and cause irreparable damage. No matter where your home is, there are still ways to install your watersoftener outside. You can either build an insulated cover over the unit, or you can bury it underground.


Water treatment systems are usually quite durable. However, the elements can eventually cause them to fail. Protective covers should be used if your softener is going to be installed outside. Although systems are available for indoor or outdoor use, they cannot be exposed to constant sun, rain and ice. Before you decide to put your water softener outside, ensure that the warranty covers outdoor installation.
