Salt water system light green, no error code, timer counts down... but no chlorine... Help!

There is a small wire mesh inside the unit that measures the chlorine/salt ratio. If it is a few years old it will have **** and calcium buildup. Take the end off, and clean the mesh.

Why does my softner never use much salt?

That is hard to say Lewis. How much is not much? Salt usage depends on the frequency of regeneration. This is dependent on the water chemistry, usage (metered or time clock), salt dosage and the capacity of the water treatment system. I have customers that go through 280 lbs of salt per year and others that go through 150 per month. Some of these customers are very heavy water users, 2000+gallons of water per day in a private residence. While others won't use 2000 in a month with the same amount of people.
I would suggest you have the water tested to make sure it is soft. If it is then the system is OK. Although I would suggest that if you do not use much water to only fill the salt tank about 1/2 full to avoid mushing and/or bridging of salt in the tank.

What is Salt Bridging in a Culligan Water Softener

Salt bridging can occur in any water softener "salt tank". A salt bridge occurs when a hard crust of salt develops across the salt tank when the salt wicks up moisture. The salt does not fall down in the salt tank in between regenerations and a "bridge" occurs. It may look like the salt tank is full but there will be a hollow area at the bottom of the salt tank and not enough salt to develop the proper brine for regeneration of softener. This generally happens when the salt tank is a least 1/2 full of salt. If the system has a separate salt tank, shaking the tank will break the bridge usually. Gently poking a stick at the bridge can break it up also but can damage the salt grid if you poke the stick too far down in the salt tank. Certain salts, such as pellet salt are highly prone to this problem. Using Dura Cube, Hardi Cube or Solar salt will greatly reduce the chance of bridging. Any time a salt bridge occurs it will take 3 regenerations of the water softener (in 24 hrs), after fixing it, to regain the reserve capacity and totally soft water.

Lost directions for using my Sisan Steamer. I have the water measure but don't know how much salt to add. Can you help?

The measuring cup holds 1/4 cup. Fill with tap water and pour one full measure into the hole exposed by removal of handle. Then measure table salt into small hollow on handle. Next, pour two (2) full measures of salt into a second measuring cup full of water, and pour into Sisan. Never use more salt than will fill the measuring hollow in handle. Remember that should the steam cease, unplug and refill with two measures of tap water, but no more salt.

Add one (1) teaspoon white vinegar to two measures of tap water, put it in the Sisan Steamer and let it run a few minutes. Then pour this out of the Steamer and rinse well to scale the inside.

My water softner have taken 80 20kg bags of salt in one weekend and all the valves are working properly i know that the salt usage doubles in the summer but this is more than double .... any ideas why im...

If the water level in the salt tank is abnormally high (there should only be about 10-12" of water in tank) any salt added will be quickly dissolved and used during regeneration. Also make sure the system is not stuck in regeneration.

Remove the handle on the iron. Then fill the opening with two measures of table salt, using the handle's device to measure the salt. Add 2 oz. of water in the opening, then reattach the handle. Connect the handle and plug into an outlet. After a few seconds, the iron should begin steaming. It is then ready to use.

Saltwater System won't bring chlorine level down

depending on the type/brand of salt cell/system you have I would recommend turning it to its lowest setting or off. Most salt cells don't measure chlorine level and will keep producing even if its crazy high. Most cells produce chlorine at about 8.0pH, so it will keep raising your pH as it generates. I would leave it off for a couple of days, get control of your pH and keep measuring your free chlorine level until it's acceptable. If you need to lower your chlorine level quickly you can use sodium thiosulfate to do so. You will have to add acid frequently to compensate for the salt system. Keep an eye on the TA as adding alot of acid will eventually lower your TA as well. Hope this helps.

System 19 - No salt being used

The eductor assembly is plugged. This is where the brine is drawn in to regenerate softener. Softener will not draw in proper amount of brine but will keep filling salt tank. The float in salt tank is suppose to stop overfilling but rarely works that way. Bypass softener run through quick manual cycle and unscrew eductor assembly on lower left side of valve body. Clean it all out, reinstall and run system to brine refill to evacuate air.

No chlorine reading

Salt is sodium chloride, you can only measure salt levels now as your CL (cloride) is bound to a NA (sodium). Table salt =NACL, Your Intex system will tell you if your salt level is too high or too low but your old test equipment for free chlorine will continue to tell you no chlorine as it can't react with the chloride any longer as it is bound to the salt. That is why they tell you you never have to add more because the salt stabilizes it. Your chlorine is there it's bound to the salt. Use the pool it's fine and it makes your water feel really soft! Just keep the salt level right and your fine> It's confusing as they call the unit a chlorine generator! I had the same issue, called Intex and they told me the above.
