    We live in florida in the winter and are wondering if there is anything we should do to our softener for this time. Usually we just turn off the water at the well and leave. When we get home in the spring I run it through two cycles.

    thanks

    Sounds like a good plan to me. Don't drain it whatever you do.

    It would not hurt to sanitize it if it sits without water flow for extended periods of time. A little bleach in the brine tank before you regenerate is all that is needed.

    Chlrione will damage resin over time, but it is a cumulative equation. Intermittent sanitizing will not have any real long term negative affects on the resin.
