Nuvo water softener how to and troubleshooting guide

Hard water is not only bad for your health, but it also damages your clothes and utensils. The high mineral content can cause cardiovascular problems, diabetes, reproductive failure, neural diseases, renal dysfunction, and many more.

High iron content, which turns water coffee brown, can lead to diabetes, hemochromatosis, stomach problems, and nausea. It can also damage the liver, pancreas, and heart. The same goes for many other minerals that are usually present in hard water.

The Nuvo water softener helps balance out the mineral content in your water, making it safe for drinking and household usage. Keep reading to learn how to use it and to troubleshoot it when it starts malfunctioning.

How long does a Nuvo water softener cartridge last?

NuvoH2O cartridges last three to six months, depending on the amount of water used.

How often do you change a Nuvo H20 filter?

First, you will need to have a whole house water filter, which will need to be replaced twice a year. If you use it often, you may have to replace the Nuvo every three months. Alternatively, if your water is not too hard, you may only need to replace it once a year.

How do you change a Nuvo water softener filter?

The Nuvo water softener system has a built-in bypass feature that diverts the water so you can change the filter with ease. Pull off the casing and put in a new water softener filter. Then reattach the case, and you are good to go. To dispose of the old filter, place it in a plastic bag and throw it out with your recycling trash.

Why is my Nuvo water blue?

The cartridge is broken. If the cartridge breaks, it will turn all your water blue.

Is it OK to drink water from a Nuvo water softener?

Nuvo water softener not turning on

Check to see if it is connected to the water outlet correctly. Then ensure that water is coming into the water softener and turn it on if it is turned off. You should also check if the water has enough pressure to flow through the cartridge and come out through the outlet port.

Nuvo water softener not charging

If the softener is not charging, then the salt in the cartridge is used up, and it cannot soften water anymore. This means you should add more salt to the cartridge or change it with a new cartridge.

Additionally, using the wrong type of salt can cause bridges (crusty salt buildup) above the water level in the tank, preventing the water from being appropriately treated. Ensure you only use manufacturer-recommended products with your water softener.

Nuvo water softener not draining

Check to see if the drain plug is clogged or closed. The softer may also be empty, so check to see if there is any debris or sediments collected at the bottom of the water softener tank.

Nuvo water softener water not flowing

Check to see if the water inlet is clogged, preventing water from entering into the water softener. Then check the filter to ensure it is also not clogged, causing the water not to flow out of the water softener. Finally, check the outflow port to ensure it is not blocked with debris or limescale, as this will also prevent water from flowing out of the water softener.

Why is my Nuvo water softener releasing hard water?

Most water softener systems feature a control valve that determines when the system recharges. When these settings are incorrect, your system will not recharge the resin beads. If your system is recharging when using water, the water will not have been adequately treated.

Additionally, if the system bypass switch is not turned on, water will not flow through the system. Lastly, the soft water demand may also exceed your system’s capacity, which will prevent the resin beads from fully regenerating between the softening cycles.
