Morton M30 Water Softener Review
The Morton M30 water softener is surprisingly compact considering its ability to handle the demands of medium to large households. The M30 is a whole house water softener system, so it will treat your home’s entire water supply.
The M30 uses demand regeneration, which means the regeneration process is based on your water usage. This is more efficient and convenient than other regeneration methods – particularly programmable regeneration. There’s also a “Recharge Now” or “Recharge Tonight” feature that allows for on-demand regeneration when you’re using more water than usual.
The grain capacity for this unit is 30,000, and the system includes a 200-pound salt storage capacity. It only takes up 1.3 square feet of space, and even boasts 8-hour power interruption protection.
Highly efficient, the M30 uses 50% less salt, which is welcome news for any homeowner. The included “Look Ahead” technology actually learns your family’s water usage patterns and can predict your water needs. The great thing about this technology is that it can save you water and salt by only regenerating when necessary and for the appropriate length of time.
We were surprised by how easy it was to install this system. Detailed instructions are included, and the entire process is DIY-friendly. The installation kit includes the conversion nuts, bypass valve, washers, and copper connectors.
Morton offers a generous warranty on this unit, with a 10-year tank warranty and a 1-year limited warranty overall.
We were happily surprised by how easy it was to install and use the M30. We were even more surprised and delighted by the results. We noticed soaps lathering better, and reduced mineral deposits within just a few days of installing this system. We don’t have particularly high water usage, but we can see this system being able to handle high water demands with ease.

Many modern water softeners also act as water filters, effectively removing odors and chlorine from your water supply. The M30 does not do this. That being said, Morton water softener never advertises that it does, and the system does exactly what it’s supposed to do.
If you’re looking for a compact water softener system that can handle the demands of a larger family, the M30 is a great choice. It uses less salt, and offers an “on-demand” regeneration feature for times when water usage is heavier than normal. Its compact design and affordable price tag make it a great choice for families who are on a budget and short on space. We highly recommend the Morton M30 water softener – especially if you’re looking to cut back on your monthly water costs.
