Did you know that every bag of salt put into a water softener ends up in the environment? Salt pollution affects drinking water sources, aids some invasive species, damages infrastructure and causes soil problems. In this video from Building Wisconsin TV, we’ll show how being salt wise with your water softener can make a big impact in reducing salt pollution. Host Stuart Keith meets with Steve Breitlow and Cory Thompson from Plumbers Local 75, Kathy Lake from the Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District and Allison Madison from WI Salt Wise. Learn how your water softener works, how it’s repaired and when it should be replaced.
