We have been using an AO Smith water softner for 2 years now. Seasonal 1 bath 2 bedroom cottage very limited usage. In general it has been serving us very well, this unit was selected mainly for it's physical foot print. My understanding which maybe wrong is a softner regenerates when the media needs to be flushed. You enter your numbers and the controller tells when to regenerate. My question is can the softness of the water be adjusted. It feels to be too soft, almost border line slimy.
