water softener salt bridge

by Manage My Life Last activity date:
March 26th, 2011

I have a series 300 Kenmore water softener. It has a solid block of salt in the bottom. I have tried a number of things to get the salt out including trying to scrape it out and break it up.

Can I put vinegar in the well to disolve the salt or will that damage the appliance?

Thank you.
Paige

I don't recommend that you use vinegar. The links that Jackie S. provided in the above response have better strategies for removing a salt bridge. I recommend that you use warm (or hot) water. Pour that warm water on top of the bridge and then try to break through it with the end of a broom handle or similar sturdy stick.
