Need help removing water softener and full home water filter

I知 having some work done on my garage floors so I need to temporarily remove my water softener and filter, but I知 not sure if it can easily be done without hiring a plumber. I壇 like to avoid doing that but I知 no plumber, not even close lol. Attached is a photo of my setup. The water filter tank (red dials) seems straight forward, but i知 not sure about water softener connection and waste pipe. Can it be done easily?

Very hard to see details from the small pictures.

Most softeners have a quick disconnect at the manifold for removal, cant see if you have!

Thanks for the quick reply. Here are some larger pics. Does that display better on your end?

The softner at the bottom, see the clips and screws on the sides, remove them and you will be able to move the tank.

The filter at the top appears to have union type connections on both sides of the red valves.

Thanks. What about the beige pvc waste line? Doesn’t seem like I can twist/turn that one so trying to figure out how to disconnect it also.

There are 2 ways.
1 would be to remove the brine drain housing assembly from the 5600 body-read up on that part in the manual.
2 cut about 2inches past the elbow and when the unit goes back in put the two parts back together with cpvc coupler.

If the water is going to be on while this is going on one is going to wish to leave bypass in bypass.

Just cut the horizontal pipe and reinstall with a coupling, does not appear to be any quick disconnect!

10-4. Can the softener tank also be disconnected at those aluminum couplings or do they appear to be clued or cemented?

The metal clips are what hold the yoke to the bypass and the bypass to the meter and the meter to the valve body.
Bypass into bypass and undoing the clips that hold meter to bypass the softer will then be able to rolled out of the way.
