SOURCE: water softener seems to be draining all the time

http://www.puritecwatersofteners.com/documentation/Hydrotech_5600MI_manual.pdf

I'm pretty sure this is the manual for your unit. It might not be exactly like the one you have but at least could give you info for it. This is something you might have to contact the manufacture for. Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: our water softener regenerated last night...this

sure if it's a reverse osmosis the valve was plugged so when you added salt it slugged the system after being empty. Common problem for this system.

SOURCE: Water Softener won't regenerate

mmmm.

I see they charge for a user manual!

I am not familiar with this controller. Is there a manual overide - a large screwdriver slot on the frint of the main shaft?

If so, you should try turning that (clockwise) to the next position and see if the moter will drive it from there. If not, then take it right through 360 degrees, one step at a time.

If it does not work on the next cycle then you may have to replace the controller.

Will recharge/backwash clean out sediments


You can try several regenerations to see if it helps. But if the well guys did not "by-pass" the softener when working on the well and all that C!!##p got into the softener it is probably toast and either needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

Autotrol 1550 tc manual


I've been an Autotrol dealer for 25 years and this number is unknown to me. You will find a model number on the back of the microprocessor or timer... like 255/460i or 268/762. For a manual, go to http://www.pentairaqua.com/en-US/product/water-conditioning-and-filtration-control-valves/autotrol/ choose your valve; either 255 or 263/268, select Resources , open your manual and download.

Harveys water softener leaking


Actually it is regenerating if it is filling the salt tank with water. It is just not drawing out the water/brine during the brining cycle. Check the eductor assembly it is most likely plugged with iron or debris. Clean thoroughly and manually cycle unit to brine draw. Usually second cycle, until the water level is back to normal then do a manual regeneration from beginning. Then regen 3 consecutive days.

Sestem is not using up salt and will not flush the lines when it is set up to .


Hi Joey,

There could be several reasons why your softener is not using salt. If it has a Demand Control the turbine that meters the water may be blocked and stuck so the softener doesn't realize that you are using any water, so it won't try to regenerate.

Your injector may be plugged, although this would cause the salt tank to become more full with each regeneration.

If you initiate a manual regeneration and regeneration does not happen you may need to replace the softener.

Knowing what make, model and age of your softener would help greatly in assessing. The best quality softeners last 15 to 18 years unless you have an Autotrol Turbulator in your softener, in which case add 25% more time; 19 to 23 years. There are a few brands that don't seem to last longer than 10 years...

Water softener fills up with water


If you are referring to the salt tank filling with water, then the problem is the eductor assembly. This is where the brine is drawn from the salt tank. If it is plugged no brine or very little brine will be drawn during regeneration. You will need to clean the eductor assembly and manually regenerate the softener to regain softened water.
What model softener is it? It would help to bail most of the water out of the salt tank. How much depends on the model.

Softener does not start up will not operate


HI Robert, If it is not starting on its own the cause is usually one of two things.
1. The timer motor is bad (not keeping TOD) Many models the timer motor serves as the drive motor also.
2. If it is a metered system it may not be counting the gallons and not prompting regeneration.

Otherwise check for salt bridges, a faulty electrical connection or plugged eductor assembly.

The first two are when you definitely know it is not regenerating on its own.
You can try a manual regeneration and see if it goes through regeneration on its own, if so it is most likely the meter assembly not reading gallons.
Most systems with meter assemblies will have an "icon" that flashes when gallons are being registered.
Let me know the model of valve and I can help you solve your problem easier.

Regeneration is nightly as oppsoed to the prrprogrammed 14 days


"DAYS00" indicates it is set to run every day. You may have lost power and it reset to factory settings. If the Gold series softener you have is the Aqua Sensor model (this is a probe in the resin tank that senses a change in the water chemistry and sends a signal to regenerate) the probe can get coated with iron and will either send NO signal or a Constant signal which will make it regen every night.
Usually a Gold series softener is either set up as metered or aqua sensor. There is an option for an override (such as 14 days) or it can be set up as a time clock model. Unplug the softener for 2 minutes and plug back in, re-program the controls to "DAY14". Make sure what the system is suppose to be set up as, Meter, AS, Time Clock.
Here is a link to Culligan for the Gold manual.
