Use this valve to blend in a small percentage of hard water to eliminate “slimy” or “slippery” soft water feel while still maintaining virtually all the other benefits provided by the water softener. Use of an accurate hardness test kit is highly recommended when installing and adjusting this valve. Otherwise, we recommend closing the valve completely and then gradually opening the valve daily, or every several days until the desired result and feel is achieved!
