Customer Questions & Answers

Bath Salt??

Can this be used to mix with Epsom salt and baking soda to make a bath and body salt bath soak??
Asked by: TeTe
Hi TeTe. Thank you for your question. The Sun Gems Water Softener Salt comes in the form of pellets. Although Diamond Crystal Salt does not recommend that the water softener salt be used as a bath salt, this product is “Salt”! The Diamond Crystal® salt consumer service team 1-800-428-4244 You might want to check and see if your Home Depot carries the “Pool Salt” variety. This product is actually a granulated salt designed to dissolve much faster. Please let us know if you have any further questions. You can also contact us at: Rick_HD_OC

Customer Reviews

Sun Gems 40 lb. Water Softener Salt is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from no mess, no worries water softner Sun Gems in my opinion is the best water softners that money can buy. Sun Gems is not only good but affordable. The price alone is incredible for the quality of the products. I will only buy Sun Gems for my water filtration system. I would recommend this product to anyone with a water filtration system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST FOR CAR WASH USES PROFESSIONALLY I have been using diamond crystal for over 7 years now in my touchless automatic car wash water softeners.No problem at all but as with every water softener we all need to add in some rust inhibitor with every 20 bags of salt to keep the softener clean.Here in Troy Ohio only home depot sells the Diamond Crystal brand.I mentioned it to Lowes and Menards but they dont stock any of these products.Their loss as well as many customers who would use them if they were available to them.Stop in to see how clean our water is when near the Dayton Intl airport to wash your car at 896 E. National Rd in Vandalia Ohio were about a mile east of the airport!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WATER SYSTEM TREATMENT This is an excellent product and it is cheap and a reasonable price that I use as a water softener for my water system. I will recommend this product to family and friends. I only got to Home Depot and purchase this product at such a low price. You get a nice amount for a small price!!
