How do I winterize my water softener?

In cold weather climates it is common for plumbing systems that are not in use to be “winterized” or drained of all water to prevent any damage that may be caused by the excessive expansion of water when it freezes.  To prevent damage to a water softener it must be properly drained also.  Refer to your water softener operations manual for proper procedures or call your local Hellenbrand dealer for assistance.
