Water Softener Tips

Cedarburg Light & Water recommends utilizing a water softener within the city. Cedarburg's water is considered moderately hard. While most softeners will do the job, here are a couple tips before you make your purchase:

  • The water softener should be sized to handle 25,000 to 35,000 grains of hardness.
  • We recommend purchasing a "demand" style water softener. This type of softener will only recharge after a certain amount of water has been used, which will save you money in salt consumption over the long term.
