Mushing

Mushing of water softener salt occurs when salt pellets break down into their crystallized form.

If a water softener brine tank is caked with salt or if a ridge of salt appears in the unit, the salt has either mushed or bridged, or both. Both salt mushing and salt bridging conditions prevent proper circulation of salt in the unit and require that the brine system be cleaned.
