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.

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

Our system is only running small amount of water through to the drain... system operating panel just says C5! Even after unpluging and repluging it doesn't change. Does the system need repair?


If it is running small amounts of water to the drain when it is in service position this means you have a bad seal pack and it needs to be replaced. The "sealpack" is the main piston and seals that control the hydraulics of the valve. When water runs to the drain constantly either the piston is jammed (which would show an error code) or there is a bad seal causing water to get by. I suggest calling Culligan or if you are handy you can do this yourself. You need a sealpack and refill piston. It takes about 20 minutes. The kit is available from Culligan.

My whole house filter drain runs all the time


It probably has a frozen piston. This will cause it to run to drain constantly. Bypass the unit and call your water treatment dealer.

My Culligan MC450S water softner has a blank flashing display. Water seems to be constantly running through the softner and pressing any display panel buttons has no effect.


This system should be under warranty still. If it is running to drain constantly bypass the system and call Culligan for service. Unplug it for 2 minutes and it may reset.

Need diagram to re-install culligan module 4428-45 serial 322938


If you have not changed the other filters then they need to be changed also. The system should be sanitized before you re-install the filters. The Membrane goes in with the large rubber seal at top of filter housing. Place inside the head of module until it seats and reinstall housing over it.
1. Drain the tank completely
2. Take all the filters out
3. Add 1/4 tsp household bleach to each housing, turn water back on to fill housings, let it sit for 15 minutes.
4. Flush the bleach out completely.
5. Re-install filters
6. Flush/empty the storage tank 2 x before using water.

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.

My culligan water filter makes a gurgle sound


The reverse osmosis faucet you have incorporates an AIR GAP to prevent cross contamination to the RO system. The waste water first goes up the to RO faucet AIR GAP and then goes to drain. The "gurgling noise" is the waste water going to drain. Some of these are much noisier than others.
