My Culligan AC-30 RO system, original owner installed in 2000, started leaking to the drain last night.


I believe as vague memory recalls their is a back wash or bypass of the ro filter system. Is the leak to the drain from a tube? or from the unit? IF you have a pump, the pressures are high entering the ro filter. If no pump they are no more than the city water. But given the age, plastic parts may be approaching their end of life. I Don't know what that is, but you might google this model and see if anyone is having these kind of problems.

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.

I have culligan house water softner. after i changed my hot water heater my softner stopped working. I dont have a manual to check. any suggestions?


Unless the softener was bypassed when the water heater went in, installing a water heater has no bearing on the softener working or not. Is it unplugged?

MARK 100 KEEPS DRAINING A LITTLE WATER OUT OF DRAIN HOSE ALL THE TIME UNLESS I BYPASS.


If the softener is trickling to the drain it needs the sealpack replaced. This is the main piston and seals all as on unit. There is a bad seal causing water to bypass it and run to drain. Sealpacks are available from your Culligan dealer. If you are a do it yourselfer it takes about 20 minutes to replace the sealpack.

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.

There is a problem with the main piston/sealpack assembly and it needs to be replaced. You can get this kit at Culligan and replace it yourself, if you are handy, it takes about 20 minutes. Replace the refill piston at the same time. Or have Culligan do it.

Constant flow from my culligan soft minder twin water softner


A constant drip to drain or brine refill indicates a problem with the seals in the valve. You need to determine which tank is leaking. The piston and seals need to be replaced.

There is a problem with the piston/seal pack assembly pack in the valve. The seals get worn or some debris gets stuck and causes softener to run to the drain. The seal pack assembly needs to be replaced. If you are handy, you can do this. It takes about 1/2 hour for a novice.
Parts are only available from Culligan.
