Rust builds up on the resin used in water softeners and is not removed by the normal regeneration procedure.  This reduces the capacity of your water softener.  Used regularly, Red-B-Gonedissolves this rust returning it to a clear liquid that rinses away easily.

Red-B-Gone dissolves the Iron in the mineral bed and is rinsed from the softener much the same as the salt brine.  If, due to malfunction of the softener, a taste or odor is detected, manually regenerate softener again, then run a cold soft water tap nearest the softener until gone.

First Application - Dissolve 1 cup in 1/2 gallon cold water.  Pour directly into brine well (softeners with no brine well, pour directly into salt tank when salt level is low.)  Manually regenerate softener. Repeat for heavly fouled unit.

Preventative Maintenance - Add 1/4 cup for every 40lbs. of salt added to brine tank.  Layer to ensure a continuous dose with each regeneration.  Cabinet models (tank-in tank) - use first application method only.  Repeat reularly.
