WHAT DOES A SOFT WATER LOOP LOOK LIKE and WHERE IS IT LOCATED ?
Water softener loops are usually installed in the garage or mechanical room. The loops often come out of the pipes in the wall or come up from the pipes under the floor. In some cases, you may find the water softener loop installed outdoors, especially in regions where hot temperatures aren’t an issue.
Many modern day houses are already pre-plumbed with a loop. If you’re building a home, you should request one. If you’re buying a home, check to see if a loop is already installed. While some homeowners install their own water softener loop, we recommend hiring a professional.
