            Q:What is the difference between the yellow bag and the blue bag of softener pellets except the price?
            by|Jul 23, 2022
            1 Answer
            Answer This Question

            A:  Morton® Clean and Protect Pellets (yellow bag) are specially formulated with salt combined with a proprietary formula that aids in improving regeneration efficiency of the resin in your softener through continuous cleansing of the resin. Morton® Pure and Natural salt crystals (blue bag) are harvested from natural salt brine through solar evaporation. This is an additive free product.

              Latest salt is dirty
              I’ve used Morton Yellow softener salt for 12 years. I bought 3 bags in January 23 and after I had dumped them in the softener I noticed they were grey looking. Pulling out a handful I was aghast to see how dirty and contaminated the salt was. Morton pure….definitely not!

                Made just for water softeners
                Morton Salt 40 lbs. Water Softener Salt Pellets, Clean and Protect, is designed to be used in water softeners. The salt cleans the beads in the water softener during the back wash, removing the minerals that were removed from the water and collected by the beads in the water softener tank. The salt and minerals are washed out and sent down the drain.

                Dirty contaminated salt pellets
                These used to be great salt pellets, but not anymore. Every bag I purchased recently had to be returned due to dirt or other contaminates in the salt pellets. The pellets left dirt all over my brine tank which got into my water softener system and other items inside the unit. As others have posted, Morton will not acknowledge this issue. These no longer meet my expectations of what good salt pellets should be.

                  Dirty Brown Salt
                  Left brown ring in my softener. It will damage your softener.

                    Poor quality pellets. looks like the salt was dirty...
                    Poor quality pellets. looks like the salt was dirty and poorly formed. I have been using this brand for 22 years and was very disappointed in the quality.In the past, It has always been bright white,clean and well formed.

                    V dirty salt risks damage to our $7,000 filtration
                    Bought from HD in Dec. As I poured in two bags, noticed the pellets were not the usual white: they were pale gray. Now, several inches of of black dirt all around the salt tank rim, and salt system filters will need to be located and cleaned (a project in itself).NOT OK for contaminated salt to mess with our $7K system. Called Morton cust service; the rep repeatedly asserted that it is normal and the dirt is "actually salt"--just not the usual color you expect"--even after seeing these photos!

                      Poor Quality
                      Morton Salt used to be very good Quality. Not any more! Both the "Clean & Protect" and "Pure & Natural" products are SOOO dirty with soil, black plastic, chunks of brown & black grit they make an oily slimy film in our salt tank. EVERY BAG! All come from mines South of our border.

                      I have used this salt for years and it has been great. Our last purchase was dirty and brown. What happened?
