No salt leaving Culligan softener during regen

I have a culligan medalist series water softener. No salt is being used and I must have hard water--spotty dishes etc. The regen comes on and it looks like it's working but again, no salt is ever being used.

    I don't know Culligan brand exactly. If you can, watch a full regen, and see if the brine tank gets filled with water sometime in that cycle.

It sounds like your salt in your salt compartment is stuck. Poor about a couple of gallons of hot water on top of your salt and see if that will break it up and fall down to the bottom of your salt container. Then regenerate your softener after about 3 hours have gone by. You should be back in business.

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.

WHERE IS OUR SOFT WATER!? A few years back we had the Culligan man out to check our water because it was not soft (at the time, we had the Culligan Mark 100 model). After testing our water, the suggested...


The most frequent causes for intermittent hard water would be the gallon settings set too low causing the softener to run out of capacity or a meter that is not measuring the gallons. I would set the "hardness" setting on your culligan softener 30% higher than actual hardness. The softening resins they use are low in crosslink and very inefficient. Also make sure there are no toilets leaking causing hard water to "bleed" through softener. Iron filters require regular maintenance to clear oxidized iron from nozzles and the valve. Generally it is better to have the iron filter regenerate at least every 3 days to keep the bed refreshed.

Hold the REGEN button down for 5 seconds. This initiates a manual regeneration. You can step the unit through the cycles by pressing the UP arrow.

Culligan medalist softener: Water continues to run thru drain line even after regeneration ends. What to do?


Its a most common problem with culligan seal pacs. If your softener is under 5 years old you have the worst softener on the market. Culligan was bought out about 5 years ago by a canada group. they changed every thing and nothing is made in the usa any more. You will have to buy a new one from culligan and pay over 90.00 for it. The old seal pacs lasted 15 years or more now your lucky if you get 2 years.
