This article outlines some considerations to take if the best installation location for your water softener is outside your home.
Our units can be installed outdoors, but we recommend an indoor installation if possible. If an outdoor environment is your best option, please keep a few things in mind:
- When installing your softener, be sure to construct a shelter or covering to block the unit from sun, wind, rain, and other environmental elements
- Verify the power cord is also sheltered at the outlet connection
- Consider applying a plastic covering or barrier at the back of your unit, where water comes in and out. There is a cutout on the back of the top cover, and critters could find their way in
- Weather can change anytime. Keep an eye out if your area is forecasting below freezing temperatures, and take the appropriate steps to prevent internal damage to your unit
