Did you know that self-regenerating water softeners contribute up to 30 pounds of salt each month into the sewer system? That salt eventually ends up in the groundwater and recycled water supplies. The City of Ontario does not allow residents or businesses to install self-regenerating water softeners. If you would like to have a salt-based water softener installed, you can install a softener that deposits the salt in a container that is collected by a professional service. If you would like to remove your self-regenerating water softener you may be eligible for a $2000 rebate from the Inland Empire Utilities Agency.
