Soft water should come from the cold water tap as soon as the water softener is installed. Soft water from the hot water tap will take longer to show up. Run a few loads of laundry with hot water and run your dishwasher to purge the hot water tank of hard water. This will provide you with soft water faster.

If you are not getting any soft water, check the bypass valve on the water softener to make sure that the unit is not bypassed.
