We full-time in our rig and are trying to think of a way to keep the softener from freezing in the winter months. In past years we built a heated box to hold our old softener because our water hookup was outside. Has anyone had any experience doing this, or does anyone have a better solution?
I full time too, but I permanently live off my tanks. I keep my softener in the heated basement, but it is not hooked up to city water until I want to fill the tank. I have to do this about every four days.
I didn't like the idea of running water lines through unheated areas.
Living off the tanks, I don't have to worry about keeping the fresh water tank sanitary.
