My culligan iron-cleer whole house water filter drains constantly

My iron-cleer system has never done this until today. Water is constantly draining out of the discharge tube and no it is not regenerating, is there a purge valve on the system that I cant find?

It normally is under pressure. There is a "check ball" in the tube to prevent water from coming out of the tube in service. The feed tube has to be flooded with water in service position so when system goes in to draw cycle vacuum is created in the tube to draw bleach. You may have a plugged eductor assembly or feed tube may be restricted.

SOURCE: egg smell has returned to culligan iron-cleer

Iron cleer and sulfur cleer systems have a bed life of 750000 ppm. This is generally about ten years. You can try running the system every day for 1 week to see if it improves. The air pump may not be working properly so iron and h2s may not be being oxidized properly. H2S smell would be the first symptom of this. I would suggest a service call.

Cabinet style water softeners (GE, Whirlpoool, Kenmore, Sears) are very inefficient at removing iron. They are not designed for water with high iron content such as yours. I might suggest setting the hardness level up as high as it can go (100gpg). Indications that water softener resin is getting fouled with iron are exactly as you described. Rusty water the day after a regeneration. You may need an iron filtration system before the softener so all the water softener has to do is remove the hardness.
Here is a link for an iron filtration system that works with air. Very simple, works very well.

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.

I have a Culligan AC 30 aqua-cleer drinking water system;after changing the particle filter and the carbonfilter , the storage tank does not fill.I have pumped air in it to pressure 0,7 bar.


When you put air in the tank did you make sure all the water was out of tank? In a three gallon tank there should be 7 lbs of air, 10 gallon 10 lbs of air.
There can be many reasons for no water in tank.
1. Bad bladder in holding tank. No back pressure on membrane (all water going to drain)
2. Faulty membrane (all the water going to drain)
3. Bad capillary tube (all the water going to drain)
4. Plugged check valve at top of membrane (no water)
5. Faulty water feed valve (piercing valve)
6. Fines from post carbon filter have plugged up the manifold (head) of RO unit.
7. Bad valve on RO tank
8. Plugged drain line

If there is available space, mounting it on a 4" inch, wooden riser (sturdy enough to handle the weight) with a rubber mat on top of the riser, may help to dampen the noise. As, it won't be making any contact with the concrete floor and vibrating and reverberating throughout the house. I don't see bolting the compressor to floor as a good solution. As, some vibration and reverberation would still be occurring.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Culligan Gold series softnerdrain line runs constantly in street.


The main piston/sealpack is frozen up and needs to be replaced. There is a retrofit kit available from Culligan to repair this issue. The reason it stops when bypassed is the water is shutoff to unit.

Water pours out the tube from the lennox humidifier


A small discharge of water coming out of the bottom of an April Aire drain spud is normal. This feature constantly tries to rinse the system. This helps to prevent the possibility of mold or bacteria accumulating in the unit from standing water. It may appear to be alot of water. But be reassured that you are breathing in cleaner air. Now if it continues to drain constantly even when it is turned off then you should repair the unit.
