Customer Questions & Answers

does the water boss 900 have a bypass valve so I can water flower and vegetable plants

Asked by: porg
Yes. There is a knob on top of the valve. There is an arrow on top of this knob. If the arrow on the knob is turned so that it is pointing at the word 'service' this means that water is flowing through the water softener. If the arrow is pointing at the word 'bypass', water simply does a U-turn inside of the valve and does NOT pass through the Waterboss. A few people suggested flushing the water through the water lines as it will already be softened. This is true. However, the volume of water stored inside of your internal plumbing is very small and would only take a few minutes to flush. In other words, this is not a problem.

Is it a self contained system?. Does it need a discharge hose or a seperate container for the salt?

Asked by: 07217
The Waterboss is a self contained system with three connections required: 1) the Water inlet from the main supply. 2) the Water outlet back into the home system 3) is discharge tube which is vented to drain when the unit cycle flushes. Ther is no separate resevour for the salt just the one unit.

36,400-Grain Water Softener System is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 121.

We purchased this softener because our old one was the same brand and had given us 15 years of good service. Our new softener was delivered direct to our house and was inoperable. The top of the cabinet would not stay attached, there was a crack under the motor and some of the interior plumbing was disconnected. Home Depot accepted the return of the damaged unit and ordered a replacement. The new one arrived quickly in perfect condition and I had it installed in no time. We use the Water Boss because we are on a septic system and it uses much less water to recharge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from after 4 months of use Waterboss. is working flawless Hesitated buying this unit because of some negative reviews. I purchased the waterboss because of its compact size, instalation manual was straight forward, directions on programing display head were simple enough. My water tested 26gr hard, set program for that hardness and left the rest on the settings on the factory defaults and the softener does the rest. Only used two forty lb.bags to fill and this will last almost two months for our house hold of 2 people. So far very pleased with the product and would recommend it as a good purchase. Reasonably priced and installing was not that difficult.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hope it has not fallen over in route to you!! This is my second water boss water softener. Installation went smoothly but once in service we got a gritty sand type material in our water lines. This was so bad that it clogged our faucet strainers. After calling the tech support number we were advised that if the unit had tipped over on its side before installation the media inside would have spilled out. Other than a this side up on the box statement there was no other warning. This could have tipped over anywhere in transit from the factory to Home Depot. Took a number of backwashes to clear all our water lines. Very poor design!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaked right after install and Waterboss will not cover the repair. The only reason I use this brand is because of the space constraints I have in my garage. This is my 4th Waterboss purchased in 15 years. This particular unit leaked within 24 hours of being installed. I called Waterboss and was told it had a defective end cap gasket. They would send me the part, and I should repair it myself. That’s it! No warranty repair. I said “you sold me a defective product and want me to repair it myself, or pay to have someone you recommend do the repair”. She confirmed this was the case. I will be bringing this one back to Home Depot and letting Waterboss have it back. If you have room for a traditional water softener you should skip the Waterboss.
