SOURCE: my mark 812 water softener just lets the water run

Culligans are famous for having rubber gaskets and selenoid valves getting stuck. The rubber seats are rotted by hard water and there is no way for the unit to seal itself off from flowing water to the drain. The whole valve needs to be rebuilt

SOURCE: how do you replace moter

The problem with Culligan is that most of their parts are very priority and hard to find anywhere but through Culligan. If you go to their web site they do not provide instructions for working on them yourself. I sure that motor is available out there and if you feel comfortable taking it apart a replacement motor may be available through an aftermarket source the problem is the part may or may not have part numbers on it other than Culligan numbers.

I wish I had better news on this but Culligan is really secretive.

Culligan water softener mark 89 model 3526-82,3526-83. unit doesn't seem to be drawing brine during regeneration

Either the electric valve has failed, or the line is plugged. Try blowing out the water line first and free it up from buildup and then if it seems unobstructed, check the valve function. Salt crystal buildup is common.

My softener is a Culligan Mark 89. Water looks clear but is real salty. I bypassed the system and purged the lines to get rid of the taste.

Call Culligan for service. You have a serious problem as it sounds like your resin bed is not going through the backwash cycle before returning to operate mode.

Normally when your water softener goes through a recharge cycle, a solenoid operates to bypass the system while brine (extremely salty water) is drawn into the resin tank to perform the ion exchange process. This is a timed process. Once it completes then your softener switches into backwash mode where the resin bed is flushed with clear water. Finally at the end of the recharge cycle the softner switches back into normal operation.

This is not something that you can fix yourself. Contact Culligan immediately.

Culligan mc450 constantly dripping through overflow pipe. Any ideas what I should do.?

If it is running at the drain for the softener, it has a bad seal pack and it needs to be replaced. You will need a Culligan service tech for this if you are not handy.

Proper Disposal of a Culligan Mark 50 Water Treatment Tank?

If you disassemble the valve completely (all metal parts) the valve itself is delrin plastic and is recyclable along with the brine tank. You may be able to scrap the softener tank. You will have to get all the resin and gravel out of it. Just tip it over take the inlet manifold out and drain the resin into a bucket, take the resin to culligan for disposal.

I have had salt in for 3 weeks culligan mark 89 is not recharging

If the unit will recharge then you might have what is called a salt bridge in the tank. The salt is stuck above the water level in the salt tank. Poor a gallon of water over the top of the salt and see if you can then break it up. The salt should go down then.

Try cleaning the filter screen under the metal cover plate. Also check your water supply pressure. Some softeners won't run properly on low pressure.c8a54da.jpg

Most Culligan brine tanks have a lifetime warranty.

To much salt in the water

The final rinse setting may have moved, which will coincide with the salt/brine draw rate...the Culligan units have a funny way of doing exactly that, which, by the way, can generate a lot of revenue for them, if your on a salt route for them to deliver it to you!....I would look up a qualified and TRUSTWORTHY!!! Culligan repair tech, or a service manual to reset this final rinse.
