In large pot, melt butter over medium-low heat; cover and cook leeks, stirring occasionally, until tender, 7 minutes.

Stir in potato and salt; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.

Add 6 cups (1.5 L) water; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until potato is tender, about 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.

In blender, purée soup in batches; press through fine sieve into clean pot to extract all liquid. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.) Stir in cream; gently heat until steaming.
