The Water Shed carries a wide range of top quality water softeners, water treatment systems, well pumps, and other products..

A question we get asked on a regular basis is how to turn “off” basic water treatment. Turning off equipment is commonly referred to as Bypassing your equipment or putting your equipment on bypass. Times when bypassing equipment may be helpful are:

  • A unit stuck in backwash
  • A bad leak
  • Work being done to your well
  • Troubleshooting the water treatment equipment
  • Filling a pool
  • Washing a car
  • Winterizing gear

So how do we bypass a water softener or conditioner? Each unit that The Water Shed installs comes with a built in bypass. The bypass is located at the back of your unit where the plumbing goes in and out of your unit.

Etched into the plastic you can see that the two knobs say Bypass and have direction arrows. By turning each knob in the direction of the arrows a quarter turn you are successfully putting your unit in bypass.

To put your unit back into service, simply take the unit out bypass by turning the knobs back to their original position. And VOILA done!
