This giant, hideous styrofoam box was covering the water softener when I bought the house. I live in East Central Indiana so it does get cold here. There also is a heat lamp rigged up that is set to come on when the temp drops below a certain level. I’ve seen the lamp on maybe 3 times in the 3 years I’ve been here. The water softener is against a wall that goes into the house. Can I throw the box away? I’ve never seen anyone else have one of these. Is there something else I could purchase that would be less unsightly? Thank you for any input!
